Jack's on Marion Ratings and Reviews
This was the second time I have eaten at Jacks. Both times I was very happy with the service and the food. We had reservations for dinner and we were seated promptly. Everyone should eat at Jack's on Marion (but please, don't everyone show up on the night I want to eat there).
We were in Port Charlotte for a show and decided to come down to Punta Gorda's Marion Street for an early dinner. I read great reviews of Jack's online, so made a reservation and am so glad I did. Had a terrific meal and a terrific deal! Between 4-6 pm, there are 5 or 6 entree choices to choose from for $13.95. It includes the entree, soup or salad, bread, and dessert for each diner. "Whatta' deal!!" I had panko/macadamia encrusted tilapia and it was the thickest piece of tilapia I've ever had. And I eat a lot of tilapia and a lot of fish. Cooked perfectly - moist and tasty. Caesar salad was good - w/ the option of anchovies. My husband had sofrito roasted pork - slow cooked, tender, delicious! Drafts were $2.50 at that hour and house wine was $3.50. We sat outside and we were served by Nicole, who was always there when we needed her. Terrific service, terrific food, terrific deal!! Need I say more? :)
Food was awful, very bland. One of us had steak and it was not flavored at all. Not tender and very difficult to chew. I had the chicken Tuscan and it had no flavor either. The lemon butter sauce on the pasta was very buttery and oily. I would never eat here again. Atmosphere was strange for a Friday night. We were seated alone in a big area while everyone else was gathered in the bar area. Outside was playing loud music that completely contradicted the inside ambience. Server was very nice though...
Being from out of town we were not aware that this is a casual bar type restaurant. Our booth was comfortable and away from the bar so all was good...until the main courses arrived with the appetizers! No one offered bread when we sat down or with our salads. We skipped the appetizer. What a shame it was going to be Tuna Poke which looked delicious but our warm food was already delivered. We were also looking for an aperitif before dinner from their FULL bar...:( No such thing. The wine list had a good selection. The food was fortunately really good so we left happy. This should not have happened at a #1 rated restaurant.
Wonderful dining experience; food was excellent and our server, Lexie, was very attentive and helpful. There is an inside bar area as well as a unique outside bar on the corner sidewalk where you can order small plates or a complete dinner - also table seating outside. Jack's has become one of our favorite places in this area.
Dining at Jack's is consistently good. Fresh food, well prepared, with excellent service. Something for everyone. A decent wine selection if you want something higher end, or go with the house wines for a great wine at a value price. Early bird menu is good also. Friendly and accommodating staff.
The only negative was that the menu listed online WAS NOT the menu at the restaurant. We picked this restaurant because of the bar menu (burgers, wraps, etc.) listed on their online menu. When we arrived, the menu was QUITE different and a bit more expensive but we stayed and tried it anyway. The food was good, prices were decent and the service was good. We would go back, but this time we would know what to expect.
We had such a wonderful dinner while on our vacation there last week that we decided to treat ourselves to another great dinner on our last night before heading home.
Never had a better steak.....just amazing!!
We enjoyed meeting Bill to and sharing our love of Fort Wayne Coney Island.
We'll be back next year to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary :-)
See you then!
From other reviews I expected this place to be great. It was not. Inside was cool as it is wide open. The food was not good at all. Poor menu, the food we did choose was plain with no flavor. Waitress was nice, but not a good waitress. I would not go back to this place anytime soon.
Jack's was the first restaurant we tried when we moved to Punta Gorda and we continue to enjoy the service, the menu and comfortable atmosphere. We love their fish dishes, especially the tuna and mahimahi. There is an outside bar as well as seating outdoors for dining. The location is perfect and there is a municipal parking lot across the street for convenience. We have never been disappointed at Jack's!
While the food was good at Jack's this time, it wasn't AS GOOD as our last visit.There were the same 5 people in our party as our last visit, and all agreed the food wasn't as good. The management always comes to check on the customers and are open to our comments. This is refreshing as they seem to genuinely care and want to improve where possible. The service was good, however, there was an issue with the server not informing those who chose the fabulous seafood soup that there was a $1 upcharge for it. Overall, we had a good experience and would definitely recommend Jack's to anyone!
The ambiance of the place was very pleasing with a friendly group at the bar.
The service at our table was exceptional, accomadating and very informative on the menu
All five of us remarked on the excellent flavor and tasteful was our orders and the presentation of it was very pleasing.
A great place for locals as well as visitors to the area.
We were a group of co-workers looking forward to a night out, and we got exactly what we wanted. Our waitress was professional, knowledgeable and a pleasure to have serve us. We were a group looking to enjoy conversation and the sound level was perfect for us to do so.
Our meals were delivered very timely. Food was hot when it arrived. The food was very good. Would recommend Jack's for lunch and looking forward to returning in the near future. On this particular day I was accompanied by 6 friends who were very pleased with the service. Great location, parking available since it was the off season.
Food was great, service good. The ambiance leave a bit to be desired. Our 'table' was a plastic buffet table like the ones you rent with metal folding legs. Come on....really?? Yes we had a fabric tablecloth over it, but with prices like they have, you would think they could afford to buy proper restaurant furnishings. Hire a Decorator, Jacks! The atmosphere falls way short.
