We went there last minute to celebrate an anniversary. The house-made focaccia with olive pesto oil was a lovely surprise. Our table ordered shrimp and grits and the daily fresh catch. It was copious and very tasty. We finished our meal with a divine creme brûlée. Our server made an excellent wine recommendation. The relaxed atmosphere, and the wonderful staff... More

We had Prime Rib and Lamb Chops. Great choices. The prime rib was served with horseradish mashed potatoes and grilled veggies. The lamb chops came w grits and veggies. The veggies were grilled perfectly, not too soggy, perfect crispness and flavors. Meat was very tender

The lunch was amazing. We tried the salmon BLT and the filet. The seasoning was perfect. Great service and atmosphere. The key lime pie and crème brulée were the perfect way to end the lunch. Highly recommended. Will definitely come back.

My husband and I enjoyed a delicious meal at Joe's 2nd Street Bistro. I had the New York Strip and was soooo tender and spiced perfectly. My husband enjoyed his filet mignon but said that he preferred mine! Tastier! The ceasar salad could have been crisper, colder, and not so "watery". Overall, however, we enjoyed our experience.

Very good dinner, food was excellent. Nice room upstairs that worked well with the kids. It was not a full night and we had 10 people so they put us upstairs. Very nice menu with good choices.

We were in town for a golfing event and decided to have dinner "downtown". Joe's Second Street Bistro is and has been one of our favorites in Fernandina Beach. The interior has been redone since our last visit and was very pleasant. Soft white walls and an interesting blue ceiling. My wife had a filet and I had a rib... More

I was really digging the area, but we wanted some nicer food one night. We came here and the staff was lovely, professional, and friendly to us. They had delicious food, even the non-seafood! Their menus is very elegant and diverse and I highly recommend for a great meal.
