Took the in-laws to JD's last evening. Sat toward the back of the room away from the stage so that we could not only hear the great music by Danny but also have a conversation around the table. Had the wedge salad which was large enough to be my entire meal. I followed that up with the red grouper over... More

Have driven past JD's for years and I finally stopped in. To my surprise it was wonderful. The music on a Wednesday evening was light live jazz in a very relaxing atmosphere. Just sat at the bar for a coup,e drinks and ordered a burger. Wow, I think maybe the best burger in town. It was a great evening out!

My wife and I had dinner Saturday night. We got a table with no resverations, although they were very busy. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful explaining different dishes. Service was quick, but not rushed. Food was excellent, especially the pate. We would definitely go back if in Port Charlotte. Jazz trio was great!

We just returned from JD's which was recommended to us by a resident of Port Charlotte. Reservations were made on line however the menu on line was not the menu available in the restaurant, a little more expensive than we were expecting. However the meals we all had (which were different) were all excellent and well presented. Our waiter John... More

Just had a wonderful experience as a walk-in at JD's. Had a lovely entree salad with grilled shrimp, and the waiter even brought gluten-free crackers when I asked to make sure there was no gluten in my meal choice. A great sign of caring and good service. The jazz combo was perfect- not too loud and very skilled musicians. This... More

excellent atmosphere, service, music and food. Our waiter was very attentive, helpful in suggesting wines and explaining items on the menu. The music was soft and enjoyable while we ate. Low lighting, but enough to see menu was enjoyable.

We met our friends here the day after Christmas and what fun! It's in the same parking lot as Days Inn so no parking problems! The place was nicely decorated for the holidays and the multi colored stage indicated there would be entertainment later. Darlene, our server was a doll! So friendly and answered questions easily. My espresso martini was... More
