One-Eyed Jacks is located about an hour south of Tampa, on the north side of Sarasota. The room is right beside the Sarasota-Bradenton Airport. It is accessible from major roads, but sits in a very congested area.
We drove down early from Tampa so we could check out the Sarasota beaches and grab a quick lunch. We ate lunch at The Dry Dock Grill in the Lido Beach area. The food was pretty good, and sitting outside on their patio was very pleasant. We walked along Lido Beach after lunch, which had some of the finest white sand we have ever seen.
If you visit Lido Beach, leave yourself plenty of time to get over to One-Eyed Jacks. Although only about 10 miles away, it took us over half an hour. There was some construction that made parts challenging, but mostly, the Florida traffic and never ending traffic lights were our main nemeses once again.
Parking is free at One-Eyed Jacks. Read More
