Reviewed 6 April 2018

This is by far one of the best restaurants we have ever been to! The atmosphere is pleasant and very welcoming. Service was great. Food is outstanding! We were a group of four and ordered Braised Ribs, Filet, Fish and Chips and a Vegan dish. On a previous visit, Pork Cop meal and Swordfish were our choices. Presentation of the meals is lovely and taste is unreal! Soooo very, very good! They have a bar area and also outside seating with live entertainment. A "must go to" if you are in Punta Gorda.

Had seared sea scallops. Luke warm and tasteless. Asparagus tasteless also. Best thing was the garden salad.

When we arrived at 1:30 for our reservation for 3, the booth was ready and waiting. Nice location with an outdoor view.

Two of us had the ham dinner, the other a ham & cheese croissant with salad. The ham dinner came with nothing else- no salad, no rolls. We ordered an additional side salad which turned out to be a handful of arugula with two split grape tomatoes, sliver of carrot and 2 small cucumber slices. It wasn't enjoyable and as a result we both left most of it on the plate.

The ham was tasty but dry, the potatoes dry but also under cooked in places and carrots (3 tiny) just looked sad.

Service provided by CC was excellent as I expected.

This is my first full meal at FM Dons since the takeover of Jacks, and although I like the place for drinks and appetizers, I doubt that I will be back for dinner again.

We took out of town guests to F.M. Don’s for Sunday brunch because knew from past visits that the food and service are always top-notch. We were not disappointed! Chef Keith, and the entire staff, made our meal memorable. Each of us chose a different entre, and each was very pleased with meal. In fact one of our guests, a University President, said the quiche was the best she had ever tasted. The sticky buns as a shared dessert were simply amazing and a real treat for everyone’s sweet tooth! We have been to F.M. Don’s for lunch, for dinner and brunch and recommend it very highly! It really is the best in town!

We had left another establishment nearby that had great food but a lousy bartender. I remembered we had good times before at F.M. under the old name (Jacks) and talked everyone into going down the block to F M's.
Well this turned out to be a great idea. We all sat outside and were waited on by Richard ( from NJ), and he was excellent at his job. We all laughed and joked with him and he was a big hit with our friends that we returning north.
So at the end of the week we had another friend going back north and yes we went back for lunch and we were looking for Richard. Unfortunately we were at the lunch time shift ( Richard starts 4-4:30) but we had Sarah waiting on us. She also was very pleasant and nice. We enjoyed our time and the food was great. This place is a must and ask for Sarah or Richard NJ. You will have a great time. Tell them I sent you.
