Everything was so great! Best cheese grits in town. .
We enjoyed the most wonderful dinner. From the food to the service, everything was so great. I had the scallop special & they were the best scallops I’ve ever eaten.
Consistently great service
Our meal was delicious and our service was good. However, the food and drinks were overpriced. $25 for a cocktail is over the top.
Awesome service, menu, and atmosphere! I would highly recommend Jack Dusty for any type of celebratory dinner. You won't be disappointed.
The setting, service and food exemplary. And it always is
Wonderful setting for a casual dinner. Great food and service and just generally a pleasant place to dine. Didn't feel rushed at all.
The service (Danielle), food & ambiance were excellent! It was an extremely busy night & it was handled well by all!
Menu was better pre-covid. But the Sarasota cioppino is one of my favorites!
We were a party of four. Our friends were in town and we heard great things about your restaurant. In fact I’m going to make another reservation for five people next Tuesday March 2nd.
Living locally, we’ve been to Jack Dusty’s many times, and always enjoyed it. Unlike when we had dinner here last September, everyone was masked and observing social distancing. Our server John was excellent!
Food was outstanding
Always look forward to dining here
My granddaughter loves it there too!!
We generally like Jack Dusty and eat there at least 4x/year. But when we went last Saturday, something was off. 5 minutes after we ordered, our entrees were served, indicating they were pre-prepared. Our group had the Cioppino, the Salmon Special, Shrimp & Grits and soup & salad. We get that some of these items could have been pre-prepared, without adverse taste affects. But all four orders? My salmon in particular was bland. And our whole $200+ meal was over in <45 minutes. Very odd. We'll pass on Jack Dusty for a while, as there are plenty of other fine restaurants in Sarasota.
Everything was wonderful!
We have so many food allergies and restrictions and every one of them were accommodated
We cannot express how wonderful that is!
Thanks for a great night!
Food arrived immediately and before the cocktails. The ceviche was returned as inedible and not charged.
Wonderful meal! We eat here frequently, but the Valentines menu was superb. Specifically the Cioppino and the Oysters!
Our favorite restaurant!!!
It was Sunday, Valentine’s Day. Was not told there would be a limited menu. Arrived at 11:30 & was told too late for breakfast—no brunch options. No VD decor. No small chocolate. Nothing special. Ordered cocktail and was awful (something have ordered elsewhere—marguerita made with vodka, not tequila). Both had fish tacos—served lukewarm when delivered. I LOVE this place and have not been disappointed before, but this time was a real letdown. We were two recent widows trying to treat ourselves in VD. SO depressing. The server, MacKenzie, ran around trying to find something for us and did come up with a cookie. So she gets kudo’s!!!
Menu was severely limited and they have taken off many of the long time favorites like the fat Jack’s fries and sticky toffee pudding desert.
It was fine nothing super special... it was ok for RITZ
As a guest of the hotel we expected better service. We were seated in an undesirable area of the restaurant and practically forgotten - others seated after us had their drinks and bread and appetizers while we waited for even water to be brought.
We asked to be seated outside and were told they could not accommodate us - meanwhile we saw empty tables outside for the entire time we were there
The food and the service were outstanding.
Did not like the layout of the restaurant at all, it was used as a walkway for hotel guests and others who were just strolling by your table to look outside. The setting was not in keeping with my view of an upscale hotel restaurant.
I have dined at this restaurant many times over several years. The service has definitely deteriorated particularly in the last 12-18 months. I imagine some would chalk that up to the pandemic.However, I don’t believe that’s the reason. Their staff is disinterested and does not appear to be well trained as one expects from a restaurant at the Ritz Carlton. Certainly this staff is not living up to the quality service the Ritz Carlton is known for. They can and should do so much better.
Fabulous chef!! The best in town, Chef Andy, makes every meal a dream come true. Lovely server and service, beautiful ambiance. Going to the Ritz is always a special occasion!
We love Jen
Service was outstanding. Our server was April. She was knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Actually she made the dining experience for us exceptional. Thank You, April.
Attentive host and servers. Feel safe during Covid. Only downside is loud construction next door!
Excellent food and service. We had a beautiful view of the Marina while dining. First class all the way!!
The restaurant was closed until further notice.
Great food, service and ambiance! Wonderful lunch spot!
Taylor, Helen, Michael, Lyle, Jeremy, Jen, José, along with the entire team at Jack Dusty always make our time at the club enjoyable.
Great service, Great people, Best Restaurant in Sarasota.
The best in Sarasota .
absolutely love this place, and the setting. service and food were terrific, especially our server Michael
Amazing food service and atmosphere!
Great lunch with a friend.. our waiter was beyond awesome!!
We sat in the outside dining area. Outside temp was 60 degrees. Plenty of space heaters to stay warm. A delightful evening!
John is an excellent waiter!!
We have been to the Jack Dusty a least a dozen times and have always enjoyed it. Until now. The service was so poor this past Wednesday. After being seated no one approached our table for 15 minutes. We watched as tables around us were seated, and served, by a different server. We finally asked the hostess if she could please send a server to our table, which she did. But service remained just as poor throughout the meal. For example, the ketchup I requested to go with my burger and fries arrived after I was done eating. Further, we never got the brown bread and so on. What is usually a terrific dining experience was a very unpleasant one this time.
We had a very good meal with an excellent cocktail, "The Siren" and wine. Our server was Jeremy and he did a great job and was very helpful with everything.
