Unfortunately it's closed. It was a pretty decent seafood place but it closed sometime within the last month or so. Bummer. Try other spots along Main Street.

The fish here is excellent, and the service is outstanding. If you can handle the noisy lunch atmosphere, it is well worth going. They have specials which are wonderful, and I find myself going here about once a month.

Ate here with my wife for lunch. Food was good and the prices weren't too steep like your typical seafood joint. Will definitely return. Pretty good sized menu, with smoked BBQ specials on some nights, and a good beer selection.

Stopped through on my way to the hotel, and on a lark decided to try JFD's. Bartow's Main Street Toe Jam on 3rd Friday of the month would have been enough, but the friendly greeting as I walked in the door, and spot-on recommendations for...More
