I am acquainted with the food service business. Joe's goes above and beyond. Great service, great food, awesome wine, amazing kitchen. Sure, you have to deal with a tourist population and a local population, but the vibe a Joe's serves extremely well for both. Highly recommended, highly respected, and a great dining experience. I will definitely return. Oh, and the... More

Mate outside upstairs. That was extra special. My husband had the shrimp and grits. I had the grouper grilled in a corn husk.m both were superior. Will definitely... More

We had a wonderful waitress and our water were kept refilled by a very polite young man. Our food was good. One got the special... More

It took 25 minutes to get appetizers and then another 25 before our entrees arrived. I had to go and find our waitress since she forgot one of the desserts.(how long does it take to make a scoop...

There are many great restaurants on Amelia island, and Joe's was a great example. We did a late lunch-early dinner here after a day in the sun, so it wasn't very busy--good for us. My husband and I both got the lobster-shrimp mac and cheese--it sounded to good to pass up or share. It was full of lobster meat and... More
