Always one of our favorite places to visit in port Charlotte. Food is the best around and reasonable when considering the great environment and ambience. Friday nights are still our favorite to listen to the guy who reminds us of a young Frank Sinatra. Incredible gem in Charlotte county we are fortunate to have a place like this.

Whoever would've thought that there would exist high-quality live light jazz, excellent food, and a great bar in the middle of Port Charlotte? I discovered JD's a little over a year ago and visit regularly, so much so that one evening Joe joked that he was going to put a brass plaque with my name on it on the back... More

If you're tired of the same ole, same ole, then treat yourself to this restaurant. It's fine dining! I liked the atmosphere, linen table coverings, excellent service and live entertainment that is fantastic. Every night features a different group of entertainers. The food was terrific. We had a group of 24 and everyone, bar none, enjoyed their meal. There is... More

This is what we were looking for! Good drinks, nice wine list, limited but nice menu, good food, good service and a great 3 piece jazz combo. For us, that's a perfect dinner out. We will be regulars!

One of the best, if not the best restaurants in Port Charlotte. Not cheap, but worth the expense for special dates. Live music. Romantic dinner. Osso bucco.

We had our son's Eagle Scout Court of Honor at JD's Bistro 5 or 6 years ago. The Manager told my wife this was a first for them. The staff went over and above. They accommodated our requests for a combination of teen-friendly food and regular/adult food items, and were very attentive. SInce our experience, my wife has taken friends... More

JD's is a great place to celebrate something special. The food is consistently delicious but they lack variety in the menu making it a difficult place to visit too often. Live music delivers a romantic vibe with jazz and other music perfect for that special event. Tried to have a special event there but the room reservation cost and minimums... More
