Since the closing of Shells Seafood we decided to give JDs a try based on the recommendation of my cousin. I was glad we did. Of our group of five, two had the 21 piece shimp dinner, one had the coconut shrimp dinner, one had the catfish dinner, and one had the steak/shrimp kabobs. All of us left very full and satisfied. Everything was delicious. The restaurant has a fun type beach front atmosphere. There's an outside piano bar deck you can see from inside and everyone was having a good time singing and dancing. You can even get there by boat and dock at their landing. We plan to give them another try when returning to the area next year.

JD's was a bit of a redneck place but fun. The night we were there country music, dancing and drinking we in abundance. The clam chowder was excellent but the oysters were just OK. The salad was very good although came with a little too much dressing already on the salad. Next time I will ask for less dressing. Other than that it felt like your typical fried food joint. Probably a "been there, done that" restaurant for us.

One of our favorites, whether it's a drink and oysters at the Tiki Bar out back, with live music, (after a visit to the beach), or a big great tasing breakfast at the best price in town, or late night snacks and the piano music inside..
