kids mac n cheese was the best. Does not taste like a kids menu item. The lobster melt wasn’t what it used to be, came out on sourdough instead of Brioche which was disappointing. The fries were okay. Great service and drinks.
Celebrated Mexican Mother’s Day. We have been coming to this restaurant for many years and it never disappoints. Service was great! Food was delicious. View impressive! Highly recommend!
What a great place! It was our first time here and we did have reservations so we were seated quickly. The ambiance was amazing and we could see the water from our table. The Ahi Tuna Nachos are delicious, and so were our sushi rolls. We would definitely go again.
Amazing food, beautiful view, relaxing atmosphere, just love this place!
Ambiance is so fun...decorated colorful with tequila bottles throughout. Sat in the enclosed patio area and the sun and wind coming was amazing. We got a kick out of the fact they have a public phone in the hallway to the restrooms...they should build a frame around that as a collector’s item. 😆
Service...Juan Carlos was great as he made solid recommendations and the rest of the staff was helpful and all seemed to be happy.
Food....the octopus is so tender. The shrimp avocado appetizer dish is so healthy and flavorful. Highly recommend both.
Meeting a new friend!
Sunset is amazing here. Great staff, good food and vibes. Outdoor seating has umbrellas for day time and heaters for night. Will be coming back.
Exceeded expectations, food and service was exceptional. Will dine here again and highly recommend.
Great lunch with an old friend
Good date spot
The food is excellent. Dining room I think is being updated because it was rather odd. Waiter cleared the table when we stepped away from the table. Waiter was great!! Overall great experience besides all that.
Great food and service
Great food, great view and great staff. Thank you.
We had a nice dinner...a little loud for my 85 year old father...but when the crowd left it was ok. The friendly manager Dave came buy to see how dinner was and we all said we really enjoyed our meals. Thank you...
Amazing experience! Our server Mia was attentive and kind!
Had a friends’ get together for dinner and to watch the sunset. We sat on the patio and had delicious cocktails with dinner. The sunset was lovely and dinner was so good! Highly recommend JRDN for any occasion big or small.
We love JRDN, and have been there many times, graduations , birthdays and anniversaries. . The menu had changed, seemed smaller, probably due to Covid/reduced staff issues. Brought two local friends who had never been there but had been wanting to try JRDN. Derrick was an awesome server. Drinks were great, valet service great, staff was very welcoming. Unfortunately. I was very ill later that night, through this am. Must have been the clam chowder, which was my main entree. I was the only one who had it. The other people were fine. And we had shared appetizers.
Very expensive for what you get. Meals are not balanced. You pay for the view.
Our server was fabulous! She was fast, knowledgeable, and such a sweet heart. I didn’t like a drink and I never send a drink back because I feel terrible doing so but without hesitation she took it back and got my something else. Her recommendation was perfect. Food is always incredible!
Great food, great service, parking is a nightmare. If valet is open, then it's no problem. Problem is that valet is hit or miss. If it's closed you're stuck with street parking. drove around for 15 minutes and found nothing.
Great food, and met the executive chef/new front of house person and gave him feedback on the new menu for restaurant week - because it was awesome! But they asked, so we shared our gentle thoughts around improvement. And it was my birthday, too, and thy were so sweet about it. And COOL lights on the table. Just loved it.
We had a fantastic date night! The food and the service was top notch!! And you can’t beat the view outside! Love it!!
It had been 2 years since we visited this restaurant and there was much change. I made a reservation for an outside table and yet when we arrived (and for the next 30 minutes) there was no outside table available. The food was mediocre, the choices very limited, and the noise level was so high that we couldn't carry on a conversation. I won't go back.
We enjoyed the lobster sandwich with broccoli salad. Presentation was great and flavor was really good.
Ahi Nachos and Mahi tacos BOMB!
The menu is a little
Great job team JRDN. Food and atmosphere is exception. GREAT DRINKS too. Top quality with an ocean view. Great vibe. Thank you so much! I will keep coming back as I have been for 15 plus years!!!
Beautiful Beach patio dinning.
The food was fantastic, but the service was slow. We visited twice for dinner during the past week (both on weekdays), and there were big gaps of time between starters and mains.
Great experience but limited menu for Easter!
Great first time experience, I will definitely be back. Appreciated the fine dinning and view all in one!
We had family visiting from out of state and everything was perfect from the service to the food! Outstanding!
We love coming here for steak and seafood and love the selections.
Great service and location right at the beach to walk along the pier after a good meal.
Perfect higher end spot on the beach...excellent food and wonderful service.
When we arrived at the parking lot, we were told the Valet parking was closed. That would have been good to know in advance. We have dined at JRDN many times prior and had no trouble with the parking. Finding parking during Spring Break weekend was a mess! We were seated outdoors, although the tables were not 6 ft apart. I didn't feel safe during dining. My hamburger was loaded with salt. Our server was pleasant but she had way too many tables to serve. Not sure we'll be back any time soon.
I definitely would return to try more dishes. I love the relaxed feel of this place.
Menu took forever to get to us. No bar code to scan. Waited to order after being sat down for over 25 min
The ambiance is the key to this restaurant. Food ok! Service very slow!
Nice view overlooking ocean. Was very loud though, windy. Menu was a little limited but the drinks were good
