Wonderful Food and Service!!!

Read several reviews of Joe's and was encouraged that all of the recent ones were very positive. We wanted somewhere within walking distance of our hotel and with Joe's right downtown it fit the bill. It also delivered on the positive reviews.

Enjoyed our 9th anniversary dinner here during our long weekend in Amelia Island. The food was amazing! I cannot say enough about how fantastic everything was. We enjoyed the prime rib (a house specialty they make on weekends) and the pork chop. All cooked to perfection, melt in your mouth. The sides were delicious also (and the grits served with... More

This is the place to go when you want a deliciously prepared meal. The food tastes like an upscale restaurant and the atmosphere is casual and comfortable. It is rare that a restaurant cooks a steak as well as I do (on a grill, at least) but Joe's served one of the tastiest steaks that was cooked to perfection. Highly... More

Joe's Bistto changed hands recently and has been beautifully and crisply redone. The fireplace is gone but this opens up the room. A full bar is now available and the menu has been redone with a good selection and variety. Service is warm and professional. Prime rib continues as a staple...big enough for two. My farfalle with salmon and lobster... More

We enjoyed a wonderfully delicious meal at Joe's -- interesting combination of flavors with very much a southern/Florida flare!

We had dinner Sunday Night after the car show and had just an outstanding meal. The Staff, Food and Operation was just the best. If you are in the area this is a Must Go To Place.

We had dinner here on our last night on Amelia Island. Unfortunate for us. If we had found this place first,we would have had dinner there every night!

Four of us all agreed our meal was excellent. Portions were large, beautifully prepared, prices reasonable. Our server, Katelyn, was friendly, very professional, and very helpful with our individual orders. Rack of lamb, shrimp and grits, chicken cordon bleu were all terrific. I so rarely get a great Caesar salad, but this one was tops. The decor is comfortable contemporary... More

Very fun atmosphere is the highlight of this bistro, which features mainly steaks and seafood. Good but not special food and portions.

We had a friend in from out of town who is a chef and wanted to take him somewhere local. After looking at 3 different menus from restaurants in the downtown area I decided on Joe's. One of the best decisions I ever made! We ordered 2 appetizers to share, the crab cakes and the wontons. I try crab cakes... More
