About Us

Deerwood Bistro is a locally owned and family operated restaurant dedicated to offering the finest food and service.  From sandwiches on our fresh-baked bread to delicious seafood and pasta entrees, we make everything to order with the freshest ingredients available.

Owners Edward and Violeta Darragjati have been in the restaurant business for 20 years. After moving to the United States from Albania in the mid-1990s, Edward began working as a server and bartender in downtown Jacksonville. His service experience and passion for meeting new people ultimately led him to open his own restaurant, where he strives to provide the very best dining experience for his patrons.
