Lovely dining room with tables nicely spread apart. Very good and friendly service. I had the bollibase (sp?) and husband had prime rib. Mine was ok-shrimp was over cooked-but prime rib was perfectly rare. We had bread pudding for dessert. Nice flavor but very dry. Overall it is a very good restaurant-much better ambience and food than the highly rated... More

My wife and I went to Joe's for dinner and just loved it. We had made reservations and were quickly seated upon arrival at a great table next to the front window. The Christmas decorations and the warm greetings of the staff made us feel very welcome. The food we had was fresh and expertly prepared i.e.: wontons; spinach salad;... More

Just had lunch there. Very interesting menu. There were several items I wished I could try. Was exactly the type of place I was looking for. Will definitely be back.

We've been to Fernandina. Fl. Several times and we always visit this restaurant. The food is fresh. Prepared perfect. I could go on and on about how wonderful they are. Hopefully you will get the opportunity to find out for yourself.

There are plenty of small decent restaurants in Fernandina Beach and choosing one may seem difficult. I pondered the decision and must have made the right choice because we had a great meal and dining experience at Joe's 2nd street bistro. Though it was very convenient across from the Hampton Inn where we were staying, the location was not a... More

This place is really great! The atmosphere is calm and the service is really welcoming. The food is very satisfying and it hits the spot. We started off with the Chicken and Andouille Wontons that are simple amazing! My absolute favorite dish here is the Grilled Filet Mignon Oscar! It was so delicious, if I had just ate that dish...

My wife and I are on vacation and it is our first time visiting Amelia Island. We had dinner at Joe's 2nd Street Bistro and the filet was the best we have eaten. Stephanie, our service attendant, was excellent. We highly recommend this restaurant.

I was rather disappointed as I had heard good reviews. However, the food was just mediocre. I had fish (Drum) that was baked. It had some kind of crustacean on the top that was dry and rubbery served on top of grits that were too rich for my palate. I am a big fan of grits, so that was a... More
