The outdoor Bar really rocks at Happy Hour. Live entertainment during happy hour. It was very crowded, but not over-crowded. It was a lot of fun. Wew went inside and had dinner, but I was a little disappointed with the food. It was OK, but not compared to some of the other area restaurants.

We have been going to JDs since moving to Florida in 2001. The food is always great and we love the piano bar as well as entertainment on the back porch. It's family owned, kid friendly and great for groups. Try the Grouper Reuben sandwich it's amazing. Always a fun time at JDs

We always go on Wednesday as it is Cape Breton night. We go for dinner and then go outside for the music and dancing. We meet so many friends from home in Cape Breton there. The patio and restaurant are packed and I would recommend making reservations. There is also entertainment at the piano bar and space for dancing there... More

The three man Temptations-like band on the patio were awesome, and set the mood for a party. However, we sat at the bar and had to light flares to get someone to serve us! We would have had another drink if the bartender hadn't been so preoccupied filling salt shakers and napkin dispensers. When our grouper sandwich finally came, the... More

Live entertainment every day and evening ( closed Mondays) by different performers. Special drink prices til 6:00. Extensive reasonably priced menu. Good food. Great service. Gets quite crowded. Need to be there early to get a seat.

The food was very reasonably priced, comfortable seating. You are not rushed to eat and is rather good, a good selection of food and drink

Inside dining on all sorts of seafood (just don't get a crick in your neck reading the hanging signs - you will see what I mean when you visit). Outside dining on the Intercoastal near the bar and entertainment. Delicious food and a good value too!

We went here twice on our trip, both times had the wings! They are the best wings I have ever had. I had them naked (no breading) with Medium sauce. Delicious! The service is not the best inside, but if you happen to get a spot on the patio, the atmosphere is amazing! They have live music and it is... More

Five of us came for breakfast recently. First of all, how can you go wrong with $3.25 Bloody Marys? And they were GOOD! I had scrambled eggs with onions, green peppers and ham with hash browns and rye toast for $7.25, which I could not finish. I was not hungry the rest of the day! I hate dry toast and... More

Stayed at one of the condos on the beach for a couple of weeks. Jds was so good that we ate there at least 7 times. Kept coming back as just could not find anything to touch them within a couple of miles. Steak and egg for breakfast is superb. Chicago style oysters a must and all the surf and... More
