We were tired from a long day, wanted a light meal. Had generous servings of spinach, orange, almond salad and beef veggie stew. The beef was very tender steak pieces, chunks of veggies. Definitely homemade. The wine list is good and you can buy by the glass or bottle, Real fabric tableclothes and napkins, excellent service Wish I had been... More

While downtown browsing in shops, we were told Joe's was a good place to go to have good food and eat outside in their courtyard. Great weather so sounded good - and it was!

The food was good, but you can get a lot more for less in nearby restaurants on the island. Each time we've visited, a reservation was necessary.

We had an excellent dinner in all aspects recently at Joe's 2nd St. The setting is very attractive - while in an older building, the interior is bright and airy, but maintains the charm of history. Very attentive wait staff and chef - and the food just excellent. We visit the area often, and dine out a great deal -... More

Upon arriving in Fernandina Beach, we walked around looking at the shops and came upon Joe's where we had lunch. It was a lovely day, so we sat in anice shady area outside and ordered a roast beef sandwich au juis which we shared, as we knew it would be quite large. We opted for the roasted redskin potatoes on... More

What a great place! My husband and I went after reading the fabulous reviews. The wonton appetizer is to die for! The chicken cordon bleu was not the typical. The cheese and ham was on top of the perfectly seasoned chicken breast with a rich demi glaze. My husband had the prime rib special which was seasoned to perfection. Our... More

From the beginning of the meal until the end we were pleasantly surprised. I was a little hesitant to order the ribeye but it was fabulous and turned out to be the... More

My husband and I had lunch at Joe's. The heat and humidity had broken for a few days and we enjoyed eating in the outdoor patio. My husband enjoyed his lunch - eating every bite. Unfortunately, I was so focused on my own plate that I didn't think to ask for a taste of his. I had one of the... More

We ate there for lunch and both had shrimp po'boys along with a bowl of cream garlic and onion soup. The soup was very good and rich. The shrimp po'boys had 6 very large and tender shrimp on a toasted bun that was superb. We sat outside in the patio area and it was shady and a nice break from... More
