The crab cakes were good but the main dish was just OK. Service good and nice area downtown. House wine not the best. Will not be back.

Another visit to Fernandina Beach and of course dinner at Joes'. This time I had the Filet and it was wonderful. One of the top 2 or 3 steaks I've had ever. My husband had his favorite shrimp and grits and it also was excellent. Salads were presented nicely and were freshly dressed. The bread warm and service attentive but... More

All 6 of us had a different entree and they were all very fulfilling and cooked to the right temp. The amount of food you get on any of the entrees is... More

This restaurant camps highly recommended and did not disappoint. The food was amazing. The wonton appetizer was delishous and had a great presentation. The fish entre was skillfully prepared and was excellent. The crusted prime rib atop of horseradish mashed potatoes and grilled eddies was perfect. You could cut the meat with a fork. The staff was friendly and professional.... More

My daughters took me to dinner at Joe's for Mothers Day. Everything was excellent. I had a snapper special that was perfectly cooked. One of my daughters had the duck. She absolutely loved it. The servers are wonderful. I highly recommend Joes's!
