Joe's restaurant was perfect romantic setting for our last vacation meal on the island. Patrick was a wonderful waiter, attentive but not invasive. Food was fabulous and very fresh.
Go there, you will not be disappointed.

“Superb Choice”
Reviewed April 28, 2014 via mobile

We were visiting the area this past weekend. My wife's brother has cancer and undergoing chemotherapy. She wanted to take him out to a 5 star restaurant.

We picked the right one, every thing was excellent and the wait staff was superb.

I would highly recommend this restaurant if you want excellent service and food.

“Amazing!”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

From the moment we walked in the door and met the owner, Mary, we knew we were in the right place. Our server Jules, made our evening so enjoyable. The appetizer of beef tenderloin ravioli, the prime rib dinner and chocolate terrine dessert were all incredible - thanks for recommending everything Jules! Not only was the food amazing but the ambiance of the courtyard added to the whole experience. Thank you Mary and Chef Ricky - you have knocked it out of the park! We will be back! DeDe and Sacha

Excellent lunch! Highly recommend! Ryan was a fabulous waiter! We started with the tuna and chicken/andouille wontons which were both fantastic! I have the chicken caprese sandwich which was also very, very yummy! Try their made from scratch ketchup!!

“Needs Improvement”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

We were so looking forward to this dining evening with in-town and out-of-town friends only to be disappointed. New to the Island. Waiter was attentive. Good thing the 6 of us had a lot to talk about. After two bottles of wine and an hour later the entrees finally arrived. I had the Shrimp Cocktail and Salmon Entre. Everything was way over sweet and salty sauces. Tried my husbands Veal and Shrimp dish...salty. Atmosphere was beautiful. Our table for 6 was ready for us upon arrival and was set nice. Waiter could not have been any nicer. Not sure what went wrong in the Kitchen....... Suggestion: on a party of like ours, waiter should say a 22% gratuity has been added to your bill however, if you would like to give more....feel free. Not sure about this dining spot. Lots of other fabulous places to dine in Fernandina Beach.
