Definitely not worth the wait

My folks were in from out of town and we had my niece with us too. Upon entering we were told it'd be at least 30 minutes, even though we saw a handful of empty tables! (It actually "only" ended up being about 20? That was about the only positive in our whole time there.) My niece was able to... read more

We loved this restaurant. We had breakfast that was perfect. Another time we went to hear music .Oh my what a great time. The 2 girl band was excellent, this was out back where you could dance. You couldn't keep me from here! Then we went back for dinner 3 times. First time we had salads and wings, Next time... More

We stumbled upon JD's during a trip to Treasure Island. We couldn't believe the prices! And this Mom and Pop place does it right, with fresh homemade food and pies from the Pie Factory. The early bird is noon to 6 and with a $2 beer you will never pay over $10 for lunch or early dinner. Breakfast is just... More

Even though this is a beach bar, they serve a very good breakfast. In fact, it is my favorite place to have breakfast in the entire area. It is very "old Florida".

We loooooove mom and pop's, and this one was no exception. We were just looking for a basic breakfast, and this one did not disappoint. It was no frills, and the menu was still pretty extensive. We each had egg dishes with fried potatoes and grits, and lots of toast. Our coffee cup was never empty, and the server was... More

We have visited the place several times during our winter stay in the area and find it to be a typical beach place with average food but a place that can be fun when the entertainment starts at the outside bar or at the piano bar...its great for this stuff but don't expect to be dined and wined. Service can... More

I think this place ranks right up there with the worst service I have ever had in IRB. Not only was the hostess rude when we commented about the 15-20 minute wait despite there being plenty of empty tables she didn't offer us a place to sit or stand while we waited. Eventually we moved to the bar area but... More

This is one of my if not my favorite place to eat and have a drink in Indian Rocks, Florida. The outdoor bar is great and the entertainment that they have outside is very good. The food is excellent and you have a view of the inner coastal waterway if your outside at the bar. They also have outside seating... More
