Good food at reasonable prices. Check out their nightly specials which offer a tremendous value. Young waitresses are very friendly and competent. Numerous large TV screens to watch sports and news. Entertainment on weekends.

JD's is our stop when we want a good burger and a beer. They have the best burgers in the area. They just added more beer choices on tap, and also have good hot sandwich choices as well. Monday is burger day. Choice of burger with fries for $7. Can't be beat!

I've come here several times, mostly for after events at my son's former school. The last time we went was in August, on a hot night. I wouldn't come here for the food, that's for sure. It's only with a large group of people who like coming here because it's close by the school. This place has huge video screens... More

JD's is a large pub restaurant where glasses of wine are very reasonably priced, as is the food. We went as a family for an easy, inexpensive dinner, and this restaurant served that purpose.

The one thing this bar needs to do is TURN DOWN THE LIGHTS! The food's decent, drinks are okay although the wine list could be better, but the atmosphere is bad, borderline bizarre. It constantly looks like last call. Just dim them.

Go to J D's on Mondays for the burger specials, with sweet potato fries, and a cold beer. Perfect!
