    Very helpful and highly professional

    Sarasota Marina Jack’s restaurant sale director Anne Camire is not just highly professional but also is an amazing lady with a big kind and beautiful heart and wonderful sense of humor. My husband and myself were so stressful coz we have not done weddings before in our families so we didn’t have a clue how to organize our wedding and she help a lot and I got the feeling of confidence
    through Anne and her wonderful spirit!
    Thank you very much Anne ! God bless you!

    I am extremely happy with Anne who helped us plan our wedding and Daisy who helped so much to decorate and set-up the day of! Both were easy to work with! If the venue already had something, they didn't try to sell it to us for an extra fee to use, they just offered it (unlike many other places after lots of wedding planning and research). For example they were able to provide and set-up a projector, they set-up our decorations that we brought in, and they provided a dance floor. We used the boat for our ceremony and cocktail hour for a beautiful sailing around the Sarasota Bay, married by the Captain, and then we had dinner in the upstairs private room. I am greatful to Anne and Daisy for how everything turned out!! I can't recommend you guys enough, thank you so much!!! Also, our dining room captain, was on top of how much money was being spent and gave us updates on when we were getting close to a certain set amount with drinks at the bar and etc.

    We can't say enough about the fantastic wedding we had at Marina Jack! We worked with Anne from start to finish. Her professionalism, experience and great personality made planning our wedding fun--without worries. We knew everything would be taken care of for our event and we were not disappointed! The entire staff was top notch! We really felt special the entire day. The food was exceptional. The venue is beautiful. The staff is professional. Overall, a class act!

    We had our wedding on the Marina Jack Dinner cruise ship. We also had our reception at the Marina Jack reception hall.
    The service, food and staff were outstanding. Anne Camire was great at preparing our wedding and working with us to make sure it went smoothly.
    Even thought this event wasn't as costly as traditional wedding venues, we were told several times that this were the best wedding many had ever attended.

    My partner and I reserved the entire Marina Jack II boat for our ceremony and reception. It was the BEST DAY EVER! Anne, the catering manager worked with us and our needs. We opted to not do the dinner buffet, instead we selected appetizers to be passed around and also set up 4 food stations through out the boat that guests could walk up to take food. The food was amazing, the guests loved all of it. We did more of a lounge experience for the reception on the boat...with less sit down table/chairs. Upper deck was set up with just high top tables (no chairs), the musician, dance floor and open bar. All the guest just loved the setup. Of course, having a beautiful sunset viewing from the boat is a great thing to experience. I can't say enough great things on the staff, the venue and food.

    We hosted drinks for our guests at Marina Jack's patio bar the Thursday night before our wedding. Anne Marie was great to work with and was very flexible. She even asked the band to play an extra hour for us which was so nice! Our guests had a great time and I would definitely have another event at Marina Jack!

    You will NOT be dissapointed if you choose Marina Jack as your reception venue! Anne Camire and her staff went above and beyond to make sure we were satisfied and the food is absolutely to die for. So professional and every detail was covered, the guests at our wedding mention the food every time we see them! (seriously!)

    We had a rehearsal dinner here (not the ceremony/wedding, but there was no option on this website for that info.) I can't say enough about how fabulous the evening was, how delicious the food was, and how professionally everything was handled. Our appetizers were delicious, the bar was a complete success, and the meals and desserts were great, too. Anne, the catering manager, was very responsive and wonderful to deal with. Everything was just as I had expected and hoped for, the view of the water is beautiful, and the sunset and lighted fountain outside were spectacular. It might be a little small for most weddings, but we had 80 people for our rehearsal dinner, and it was very roomy; could have easily had another 3 tables. I was very surprised and delighted that we could make changes in our meal count up until the day before the event. (You may think you won't need to do that, but things do come up at the last minute beyond your control.) And they allowed us to have 2 dessert choices for our event without charging any extra fee. Highly recommended !!!

    Anne Camire, the Director of Sales & Catering was incredible. She worked with us on the wedding reception menu; the perfect room setting; logistics and table linens. She went above and beyond upgrading the candlelight and creating personalized menus in the black & white color scheme of our bridal party. She is so easy to work with and is the epitome of professionalism. The food was incredible. I highly recommend the filet mignon and the Chiiean Sea Bass. Most of the plates were EMPTY!!! SOOOO good.

    Marina Jacks is the place to host your cocktail hour and reception. They made my wedding day so special- Anne is the person to contact. She will work with you with all of the details. She made planning my wedding so easy!!! Also, we used the boat for the cocktail hour and my guests had the best time- everyone saw dolpins on the boat ride and the food and drinks were out of this world. The reception was also fantastic- we had the filet mignon/chicken marsala dish for our guests and everyone said the food was so good. This is best place to host an awesome wedding party for your guests!!!! They also held onto our cake, since we left without it!!!! Very professional and nice staff!!!!

    The planner was very easy to work with and made my day very special. The room was designed just as we discussed and looked wonderful. The food was amazing - we still receive compliments on how great everything tasted.

    We held our rehearsal dinner in the Marina Jack banquet room in August 2016.

    The space is absolutely beautiful. It has floor to ceiling windows so there really is no need for much decor. The food, drinks, and service were all fabulous and it's central downtown location made it easy for our out of town guests to find. I highly recommend for a rehearsal dinner venue - it's a beautiful place to welcome your guests to the area.
