“Great Local Bar!!”
Reviewed 26 May 2014 via mobile

My husband and I love this bar! Staff is friendly, food is awesome and atmosphere is warm. We feel welcome whenever we come here, unlike the other bars in the area. We also love how they play music videos, nice touch!

Local neighborhood bar with decent selection of beer and food on the menu. It is a nice place to go and relax.

“Go for the drinks and Eat before you get there.”
Reviewed 10 March 2014

JD's Tavern is a bar and the beer is great. However the food....well... We got 2 appetizers : fried pickles and the mozzarella sticks. Fried pickles were fine but the mozzarella sticks were gross. They had a horrible after taste and it was not worth the calories. I also had a cake and it was horrible. This place pretty much just heats things up after they have been frozen for weeks.

“More of a Bar than Restaurant”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

If you are looking to go out for drinks then this is a good place but I would never go there just for the food. Food is okay to poor.

“Tasty Local Treat.”
Reviewed 13 February 2014

Great outdoor seating with tasty food and attentive service. One of our favorite places to eat out during warmer weather since it's close and everyone in our family likes the food there. We only go about once every 5-6 weeks when it's cold out as the atmosphere indoors is not as pleasant (typical sports bar set up with several TV's and dark). However, we still go there once in a while during the winter because their shrimp po' boys are to die for and come with your choice of very nice sides.

Outside atmosphere is great; indoor atmosphere, not so much.
