Several of us had reservations for lunch here and could not believe the décor and how nice the staff was. The place was pretty crowded, but we had an outstanding sever, and loved the place. The food was excellent like the wontons for an appetizer and the steak salad and shrimp, ribeye and filet. They have a great patio area,... More

Joe's 2nd Street Bistro is rather small and quite busy. Better make a reservation because it's very popular and for good reason. The food is outstanding. We had the fish special, which was cobia. Very mild and prepared blackened, it was delicious!

Glad we did... More

Wonderful food, excellent service and good wine list. The duck was soooo good. My husband had the lamb, it was very good too. Our server was so helpful and attentive. Great place for a date or special occasion.

Excellent food, especially The catch of the day and the grouper that is always on the menu. The Cajun Carbonara is fabulous if you like spicy and large enough for two meals at home the next day. Great gumbo. As a bonus they have a full bar and a reasonably priced wine list. It has passed several of the Small... More

The food was average at best, especially since the price matches some of the local higher end restaurants.

I know many people who have gone there and enjoyed the food. The food was very good but very pricey even for lunch.
