Really enjoyed Joe's... Service is fabulous and food is beautifully served, hot and delicious! The waiter recommended my son get the fennel etc... fish topping in the side which was perfect! Fish cooked in corn husk was also very good. Really nice place... and although everywhere is island casual this place feels more upscale, modern and adult.

Joe's 2nd Street Bistro is located in the heart of old town Fernandina Beach on Amelia Island. Reservations are accepted and our table for six was waiting for us even though we arrived half an hour early trying to avoid the rain. All of our dishes were excellent with most being local seafood. Great place to dine.

Fantastic meal, amazing service and impressive ownership. Small, unassuming location in a strip shopping center which will quickly become a favorite. We enjoyed the calamari appetizer, home made salad dressing on our salads (salad is INCLUDED in the price of the entree...WHAT?!) but the Steak Marsala and Mahi Mahi were the showstoppers.

To start we had clams Amelia and the tuna martini both excellent.The shrimp and grits were very good but the bouillabaisse was an outstanding dish packed with fish.It is not often I am unable to finish a fish dish but this was the one.Good wine list and outstanding service from Ashley made for a memorable meal.

Don't let the rather pedestrian name "Joe's" fool you. This is not your average place. It is excellent. Very pleasant décor. Good service. Good Food. We had lunch here. My only regret is that we didn't also go here for dinner. If lunch was this good, I am sure that dinner would have even been better. Really was perfect in... More

Wonderful fare. Everything was outstanding, from the gumbo to the wontons to the Caesar salad to the most excellent preparation of the fish of the day, Wahoo. Amazing. Kudos to Chef Pigg and staff!

My husband and I decided to visit Joe's despite the negative reviews. We were seated immediately. The sweet tea was very good. My husband ordered the 28 dollar steak medium well done, with garlic butter when it was brought to our table it was really rare. No taste of garlic butter we sent the steak back to be cooked a...
