You should make a reservation because it's a small restaurant. It was pricey, but the food was really great, the servers were very nice and it was a quaint atmosphere. It's right across the street from the Hampton Inn which was great because that's where we were staying.

Our whole family went there for dinner on December 30, 2012. The 7 of use had a great exoerience at Joe's. It's one of those places that you feel welcomed by friends when you walk in staff very friendly and great service. The food was excellent, so good in fact we went back the next night and they were busy but they still managed to work us in. I will be back everytime I come here. Keep up the Good Work at Joe's 2nd Street Bistro.

Salad was frozen. $28 prime rib ordered med-rare was delivered med-well.....vegetables were not really anything but carrots....$60 dinner....could have eaten at Sonny's. Service was good however. Too much money for poor food. Ruth Chris' is only $10 more and it's right every time.

As our favorite restaurant - Le Clos - in Fernandina was not open on our anniversary, we decided to try Joe's. Good choice!! Warm welcome! We had mentioned "anniversary" when making reservations and they remembered!!! Perfect sitting near the fire place. Excellent food timely served without rushing us. Creme brulee to die for, compliment of the house for our anniversary. Pricing was reasonable.
Thank you for being part of our anniversary! We will be back!

This place artfully mixes the best of the past (their historic home location downtown) and fresh, farm to table cuisine that's well-priced and well-served. On this visit, we chose to sit out on the back patio because we had two families. If we were on a date, I'd probably choose to sit inside.
