My husband and I were in Punta Gorda for a night away from home nearby. Our dinner at FM Don's was outstanding. Waiter AJ made the experience the best in his ability to really listen and guide us to great choices as well as socialize a bit. We started with the warm goat cheese spread with apricot glaze and warm pita bread, moved on to sharing a wedge salad with big chunks of blue cheese and bacon. The Pappardelle with pork was outstanding as were the scallops. We sat outside on the side terrace and experience a cool breeze with quiet space for conversation. We highly recommend this fine establishment which just changed hands and underwent a name change and renovation with good effect.

Stopped by to watch some sports and stayed for dinner. The liver pate is a great app and the bar is really well run and good. Had dinner and Genevieve served us and the grouper was outstanding. It was our second visit sine the change to F.M. Don’s and both times were excellent.

Jack's was taken over by the owner's of the Turtle Club and is now called F.M. Don's. Food is always good and decor is now a little more upscale. Atmosphere and character of Jack's is on life-support. And prices for top shelf liquor has been racheted up. Example: Maker's on the rocks...$13.00. Ouch!

Unfortunately the menu listed on the Yelp website is not what is being served. Salad very good but mussels very small. Overall disappointed, but our server Taylor was very good.

Very disappointed in tonight's dinner. Short menu and not as shown on internet. Salad not included, cocktails in very small glass. Food average.

Best was our server, Taylor.

Loved Trabue...no comparison, Keith
