    Excellent meal and experience. We eat here regularly and love it. I wish we would have gotten a better table, after requesting it, then politely letting them know we preferred a different area of the patio that was wide open...

    This restaurant should not be located at the Ritz Carlton. It has a run down look and feel to it and needs a major overhaul to have a place within an elegant hotel. The menu has changed so much and often, the food and beverages are mediocre and the menu does not offer a good variety of food. What happened to a delicious chicken salad sandwich that you offered in the past? (Not that horrible over curried chicken that I had two months ago and that is no longer on the menu and replaced by a boring turkey club sandwich.) We have been coming for many years to dine at the Ritz Carlton and unfortunately your restaurant is getting worse and not inviting enough where we have come to the point of not feeling to give it another chance.

    Waiter was too engrossed in a table of women to pay attention to our table. Service was poor & unfriendly but the finale was after he brought our checks we waited 5 minutes for him to come & get our credit cards because even though he was facing our table he didn’t feel like breaking away from the chatter with the table of women

    My sister and I enjoyed a fabulous lunch here as we launched the holiday weekend. The food was exceptional, the service was wonderful, and the wine was very very cold and delightful. This experience met (and even exceeded) our expectations. It is with 5 stars plus that we recommend Jack Dusty!

    Timing between serving apps & mains needs to be considered. Mains were delivered before appetizer was finished. Servers should wait to enter mains into the system and monitor tables for completion of app’s.

    Third time over 3 years at Jack Dusty, and different every time. Had special: black cod, asparagus, onions, potatoes. Cod was very very good, accompaniments were quite nice. Companion had salad with grilled shrimp, and really liked it. Staff were personable, helpful, unobtrusive -which counts for a lot-, though there were a few small waits for their attention, for the most part I was happy to be left alone, as I was looking for someplace quiet for conversation. It was that, although it might have been noisier at the more-lively bar, and fortunately not many people were in the restaurant. Rum Runner cocktail was interesting, with some Myers Rum and a hint of banana; though not too sweet. Mojito seemed standard. Trifle for desert was all right, key lime tart was standard. Construction on surrounding streets makes it a little tricky to find: come in from the north on Tamiami just south of Fruitville

    My wife and I went for our Anniversary. We indicated on our Open Table reservation that it was our anniversary that day. No one offered a “Happy Anniversary”. The service was just ok. The Jack’s fries were good. My wife had the special that was tilefish and I had the grouper. The meals were very salty and the flavor was just ok. The bread which was emptied from a can was mushy. My wife had an old fashion that was good, but very expensive.$18. We dined there in February on my birthday and service and food was much better. With so many restaurants in Sarasota, we will not return.

    The menu is very limited & quality of food is NOT worth the price. The alcohol selection is nice & management is very attentive. The ambiance is spectacular especially in the late evening & night. The background music was soft & enjoyable. I would definitely go back to give it another try.

    Worst Shrimp and Grits I've ever tasted. VERY SALTY! My fingers were so swollen the next morning that I couldn't get my rings off. Service was initially great, but then our waitress disappeared. We won't be back.

    I have enjoyed Jack Dusty on numerous occasions and keep coming back. Maybe it was because it was Monday night and maybe the chef was off, but the main courses were not up to standard. It was a pleasure to not have the normal high level of decibels - both because it was Monday and the depth of the summer - but it should not be at the expense of the customary high quality food preparation.
