Very pleasant supper club atmosphere with very good live jazz every night except Monday. We found it through TA, as we have many places before. This is a real keeper! My wife has shrimp and grits and I had grouper. Both were exceptionally good, as were the two oysters Rockefeller I had as an appetizer. The oysters were very big,... More

We had a wonderful dinner with our Aunt and cousins. The food was great and the Jazz was better! Go on Wednesdays to hear the Kitt Moran Jazz Quartet...they are our favorites! Kitt has a great voice. We have a favorite waiter too...Joe! His service is always top notch! Nice place to go for a fun evening.

Loved the Jazz bands and the atmosphere made everything so special. The real linen table clothes and the lighting really set the stage. And since I was staying next door I could walk home. LOL we also had breakfast there in the mornings through the hotel and the food was just as good. You can tell the staff enjoys their... More

JD's Bistro offers amazing live jazz music and fantastic food. We have gone on Friday evenings each of the last 2 times we've been in the Port Charlotte area. That's when the Danny Sinoff Trio is playing and includes Patricia Dean on drums. All 3 musicians are incredible on the instruments they play. Danny's and Patricia's voices are so beautiful!...

We stayed at the Days Inn next door while we were looking for a home. They suggested JD's. The food was good and they had live music. A bit pricey.

I think all entrees were about $25 and up. It was a bit more than I expected, but I didn't look at the menu so that's my fault. The price is generally too much for me. Atmosphere was very nice. Pretty quiet and calm. Enjoyable meal. There's a JD's lighted sign near the street, but the building sign is not... More
