This restaurant has been renovated to look like a classy dining establishment from the 40's down to the jazz played by some of the best jazz players I've heard recently. The food is outstanding, service was excellent, the entire staff was friendly. Friendly atmosphere. The GM, Joe, provided a history of the place and the musicians when we spoke with... More

You will be greeted by Maitre D' Joe...then escorted to a table complete with lovely linens and sparkling cutlery....their Chef is excellent - there is no trouble finding something delicious on their menu (the pate appetizer is divine and large enough to share and their oysters can be served in what ever denomination you desire) - each plate is artfully...

I almost hesitate to review JD's for fear I will never be able to get a seat! This place has it all - marvelous decor, fabulous food, superb service, and the most unbelievable jazz!! The minute you open the door, you will feel like you are in a NYC club. When your beautifully presented meal arrives (rack of lamb is... More

I had a wonderful evening of excellent food, fine wine and enjoyed live jazz! Jazz would not have been my choice - but that has changed since my visit to JD's. If you haven't stopped in for dinner you should! I only wish I lived closer to this place or found one like it in Maryland!

Great, enjoyable and varied jazz, attentive and courteous staff, wonderful food and specials, moderate to high but worthwhile prices. Full bar with wines by the glass or bottle. This has become our favorite local go-to when we care! Have been there multiple times this year from Spring thru Summer and look forward to many more visits.

It's like visiting a "Supper Club" from the past. We are looking forward to our next trip to Port Charlotte just to go to JD's! Worth... More
