For an elegant dining experience with excellent cuisine, Jack Dusty is hard to beat. The lovely "Florida" setting facing a small boat harbor and glamorous high-rises was matched by the sumptuous meals my wife and I enjoyed as the sun went down. It was a wonderful way to celebrate her birthday. Highly recommend!
We went to Jack Dusty’s for a nice lunch and that’s exactly what we had beautiful, and relaxing. The server was great as were the people who bust the tables. We weren’t rushed and our cocktails were perfectly made
The porch is amazing. Our server was wonderful as well as the food.
We went to celebrate a birthday and had a wonderful evening together. Lyle was our server and took great care of us while giving us enough room to talk and celebrate. The food was delicious, the drinks were tasty and the evening was a great success. We are very satisfied with having selected Jack Dusty’s for our special occasion.
Perfectly cooked salmon, great attention to my food allergies, lovely outdoor setting.
Excellent experience. We sat outside and it was awesome! Service, food, and ambiance was phenomenal
Perfect restaurant! Great view, our waiter Lyle was excellent, didn't bother us, but was attentive to our needs. The fish dip was excellent, love the crackers! The blistered shishito peppers and cocktails were also delicious.
Loved it!! Service is fantastic, and so is the food. Well worth the drive and the price.
I took my mom and dad to lunch after her baptism and to celebrate her new in Jesus! We had the calamari which was delicious and ordered clams and salad. Our waitress was fun and it’s such a beautiful place to grab some lunch.
Truly amazing!! Went there for a friends anniversary, perfect table overlooking the water. Danielle was an outstanding waitress, so sweet and accommodating. I was happy she took her mask off, nice to see real human smiles! Food was delicious!!
Excellent food and service
Excellent food and wonderful wait staff!!!
fantastic food, ambiance and service was over the top, thank you Matthew, you were absolutely fantastic, well done, and thanks
It was a lovely evening at Jack Dusty. We were especially impressed with the birthday dessert!!! The waiter was amazing have recommendations and was attentive to our needs. Overall a wonderful night
Top notch food, ambience and service! Very highly recommended!
This was one of the best restaurants I’ve been too! So accommodating for our post-wedding brunch.
It was our 10 anniversary and the staff could have treated us more special. Bus boys, waiters and the front deck hostess greeted us with congratulations and treated us to complimentary drinks and desserts. It was very special, would highly recommend them for any special occasion.
Ambiance was great and good setting. Our server Mike was probably the best service we’ve had at a restaurant other than Ruth Chris. Highly recommend Mike and this restaurant!
Exceptional food and service always. A reliable option every time!
Great kitchen and great service! In sitting outside, the overall ambiance was pleasant and refreshing. With the water, marina and lush green grounds, you forget where you’re at for a bit.
Birthday celebrations of friends
Lovely view of water sitting outside. Matthew was our server and he was terrific. Food was very good.
We were welcomed and made to feel special for our evening at Jack Dusty. Every staff member was pleasant and appeared to really enjoy their work. A cocktail at the lively bar was made special by Andrea with a lesson on ice cubes. It was a stormy night but the wide portico allowed for a dry dinner table outside overlooking the lagoon. Each course was presented nicely and delicious. The ceviche very fresh and the flank steak seasoned and cooked perfectly. The chicken was also done very well. Strawberry spoon cake came with a candle for birthday celebration. A perfect place to celebrate a special day.
Very good. I had grouper and side salad. Fun place to people watch.
Great service. Food tasty and ample. Bar noise a bit loud but tolerable.
We were staying at the hotel, so it was an easy choice. The food was amazing ... lots of fresh specials. And if you like Crafted Cocktails, this is the place for you. Very active bar scene in the evening.
Excellent food, excellent service - am I missing anything? 🎩
Great place, family friendly and fresh simple menu.
Jack Dustys is one of my favorite restaurants in Sarasota. The food is always excellent and the service unrivaled.
My last visit we dined inside on a Saturday night. Live music was playing and it was an enjoyable evening. At times it was very loud as there were several tables celebrating birthdays. However, It did not take away from the excellent meal and stellar service one always receives and dining at Jack Dustys.
Great patio dining with wonderful service. Would be perfect if they added guitar music for the weeknights!
Food is outstanding! Great service and atmosphere!
First time here - all first-rate - food, service and setting. Ritz-Carlton always a safe bet, and didn’t disappoint!
Was celebrating birthday with my girlfriends last night. Our waiter Jorge went above and beyond to make it extra special and memorable for us. We were very well taken care of and I would highly recommend this place, for the excellent service first of all and gorgeous evening view if you sit outside.
Rather disappointing experience. The place looks and feels like a bland, boring and sad canteen. The service was ok, the food pretty much reflected the atmosphere: tasteless and boring. Total waste of money and time! While making reservations, we were asked if that would be a special occasion and we checked the box for Anniversary but that was also overlooked and nothing happened, not that we were expecting a preferential treatment but would be nice if had just a better table reserved. The fist and last time for sure!
Food was delicious. The bread in a tin can is odd and not that great. The latte was delicious and really great size. Overall, delicious food.
The Good, Bad and the Ugly (not listed in that order:)
The fish dip gets smaller as do the quality of crackers. The drinks were delicious and my favorite in the entire Sarasota area. Service was perfunctory. The desserts were impressive!
We were place at a table near the entrance to the dining area. People were using it to get to the pool. Not exactly elegant. My dish was over salted.
Spent the evening dining out on the beautiful balcony. Service was good & our food was fantastic. Everything was brought in a timely manner & the live music was delightful.
