Two couples out to celebrate an anniversary and we were very happy with Joe's. The shrimp cocktail and the tuna martini were both very good. Calamari about average. The main courses were uniformly excellent. Two of us enjoyed the bouillabaisse, one had a marvellous strip steak with sauce Diane, and the other the fish special. The mains and the accompaniments...

Recommended by friends. The setting was nice, table was great, service was really good. But, the food was average. Great lamb chops, gummy grits and not even al dente veggies. Not bad enough to send back, but not was was expected. We will try it again, everyone has an off night.

Wonderful lunch! The salmon BLT with field greens was absolutely delicious! They had an amazing fresh ketchup for the fries! Highly recommended!

We have been to Joe's on several occasions, so obviously it is a favorite of ours. We will return, but we have seen ups and downs. Tonight, I think our food was great, but service was a bit amiss. They recognized this, made amends for our issues, and I greatly respect and accept. That is what makes a great establishment.... More

Strolling in town and having no dinner reservations, we were rejected by two restaurants(Espana and Le Clos ) but cheerfully accepted without reservations at Joe's bistro. Our faces lit with a smile and we were seated and served promptly. Restaurant was almost full. Shrimp with grits and grouper were delightful. So were deserts. Lovely wine list. Our experience was a... More

Joe's Second Street Bistro proved a wonderful surprise. We had considered a number of times eating there, but somehow did not do so. Now with several visits accomplished, it is easy to praise much about the restaurant. Food tends to be good, even excellent at times. Soups, seafood specials, such as various fish, are notably good.We remain quizzical, though, why... More
