We understand that there has been a change in staff - I think that... More

My wife and I had a long day of golf and shopping in southwest Florida and we just wanted to have a nice meal. We had not been to the Jacaranda for at least three years. We remembered it as being so so the last time we were there. This meal was delicious and our waiter Benjamin made sure everything... More

During one of our visits, Tuesday night karaoke night they had a new bartender that did not know the happy hours. All of our drinks were charged at full price when we said something to... More

We love The Jacaranda! Have been going for over 20 years and love the crab stuffed grouper with lobster sauce. It's a beautiful restaurant and so accommodating. I highly recommend it.

We loved this restaurant. The atmosphere was a bit Italian influenced. Live music was a little loud. But the staff was very attentive. Service was prompt...no waiting! From drinks to bread to salad to meal, no waiting between. Wonderful! The food was very good. I highly recommend.

jacaranda can be overlooked at times but it has consistently delivers some of the best meals of the week, even the shorter menu in the back has some great meals. Go to the back bar for nightly live entertainment and a fun place to have my yearly dance.

We don't eat out often when we visit the island but always have one dinner at The Jacaranda. We've ordered various seafood entrees through the years and have never been disappointed. Last Friday's meal was no exception. The crab-stuffed mushrooms were delicious. The four huge caps were enough for two to share. My fried shrimp had a wonderfully light crunchy... More
