We went there for lunch and the shrimp cocktail and ceviche were great. Very modern atmosphere. Service was good with both inside and outside dining areas.

Ate at Joe's 2nd St. Bistro while visiting over the weekend 6-13-15. The location and atmosphere of Fernandina Beach was fantastic, the feel of the restaurant was very comfortable, staff friendly and prompt. Food was outstanding - ribeye and rack of lamb were fabulous. I'll be spending more time in this town and will revisit Joe's Bistro for sure!

The staff was very friendly. We made a reservation, but wouldn't have needed one at 6:30 on a Saturday night. We sat on the patio because it was too sunny and hot on the upstairs porch. I had a $30+ steak that was way too fatty - I realize the cut I got is typically fatty, but this was over... More

Our group enjoyed several appetizers, delicious entrees and several desserts. The service was wonderful, and our server went out of her way to accommodate special requests and children's request. Filet Oscar was group favorite.

My wife and I visited Amelia for our anniversary and ate at Joe's one of the nights. Food was excellent and the wait staff went above and beyond to make sure our special day was just that. Would highly recommend Joe's to anyone who visits Amelia Island.

We had a wonderful dinner on the outside patio during our visit. Very impressed with the food, the wait staff and the decor. We had a table by the water fountain (watch the black bird that likes to perch on top). Our hotel front desk staff recommended this for good food. So glad we got the chance to try it.... More

This restaurant is formal inside and laid back outside in the courtyard. Our server, Debra, was sweet and professional. We had a Franciscan Cab Sav ($58), the appetizer special of fried green tomatoes with mozzarella ($10), delicious, the clams Amelia ($9.00), excellent and the ahi tuna martini ($9.00), also delicious and fresh. We want to return here to sample the... More

Julia was the best waitress ever. Food was amazing and great place to celebrate birthday. Most wonderful chocolate desert that they say takes 4 days to make because of so many layers.
