Class in Murdock.

The ambience is so romantic and comfortable. Tthe service and food are exceptional. The entertainment has been top notch each time and although a bit pricey it's well worth it.

I took my wife here and we were hoping to try the Prime Rib. That did not happen as I guess they only do it certain nights? So we ordered different meals and have to say we were a little let down. For the price we thought it would be better. I did talk to some other people there eating... More

This is the place for jazz and good food in Charlotte County. Both the food and the jazz is excellent. Yes, on the pricey side, but you are paying for the entertainment and great entertainment at that. Among others, it's hard to beat the trios of Patricia Dean and Danny Sinoff. Our parties have had bouillabaisse, osso bucco, chicken marsala,... More

Our two sons gave us a gift certificate for JD's for our anniversary. We were about a month late celebrating, but oh my, was it good! We sat at the bar so hubby could order off the bar menu, but the bar is actually just along the side of the dining room so we could see and hear the jazz... More

The food is excellent but expensive, you are paying for the entertainment. We didn't realize this until we had an early dinner there and entertainment doesn't start until late.

We are locals and we are very choosy about where we will eat out for meals. Unfortunately, we don't get to JD's much in season because of the crowd. But, we certainly enjoy our visits when the snowbirds aren't in town. Great menu, great atmosphere, fabulous live jazz music, awesome wine list and martini menu. The manager, Joe.....marvelous!!

Yes, you're going to spend more money here than you will at Olive Garden down the road, but there's food and there's FOOD. I had the pan seared grouper which was perfectly cooked and so flavorful I had no need for salt and pepper. My dining partner had the Osso Buco, and was just blown away. Soup, sides and dessert...

We went there for our 22 anniversary, The food was good, the jazz band was fantastic, but the prices are sky high! NOT for your average Joe or Seniors on a fixed income. We won't go back because it broke the bank at $40 + a plate not including drinks, sides or dessert!

Oh My-what a gem. The food was fantastic, the drinks perfect and you have to experience the music first hand. Fabulous jazz, food and service.
