    Food and drinks were great. Service was overwhelming. The staff were pleasant enough but the consistency was terrible. one served the drinks another took the order then another came to take the our order again! We were asked 3 times if our food was O.K by different staff. By the end of our meal we had been "looked after" by 5 separate staff.
    One consistent server for the entirety of the visit is fine.

    BIG COMPLAINT: It was my sons 15th Birthday and I phoned in to say this before hand. I was told that when the dessert comes out, they would bring a birthday plate with the dessert. I ordered a dessert (even though we were full) and nothing happened. The next table had "Happy birthday" sang to them and a sparkler etc.... We had nothing. A special evening out turned into just a normal evening out.

    Very disappointed. :-(

    My wife and I went to JDs Grill for the first time recently. We were welcomed by a polite enthusiastic member of staff. We booked for 1900hrs and arrived on time and our table was ready despite the restaurant being quite full. My wife ordered the New Jersey chicken with sweet potato fries, which was tasty, though the pulled pork topping as a bit dry. I ordered a large St Louis pork ribs and 5 chicken wings as a side. Wow!! the portion size was immense (I think a small portion would have sufficed). I have a big appetite and I couldn't manage to eat it all so had it boxed up and brought it home. We shared a Cookie tower dessert which again was very enjoyable, despite both of us being fit to burst!! Well done JDs, I think next time I will "undersize", but we will be back soon.

    Good food, friendly staff, clean and tidy restaurant, only downside is the food is a little pricey and the alcohol especially wine is extortionate priced.

    Great food, everything we ate was delicious. The baby back & belly ribs were melt in your mouth, and the steak burgers juicy! Extremely generous portions, and excellent value for money.

    Fantastic food, great service. Nachos defeated me! Huge portion with freshly made salsa, jalapeños and the usual toppings. Main meals huge too, lovely chips and I would recommend the peppercorn bourbon sauce, buttery and rich!
