Stephanie our waitress was great. We started with the tuna martini which was a great surprise and delicious. We love seafood so went with the special snapper, which was also very good. We ate on the courtyard and it had a cozy feel. Topped it off with a double chocolate dessert.

Took my family out here and was truly impressed! Aside from the professionalism of the staff and our waitress, the food was highly exceptional! From the Crab Cake / Wantons apps to the Rack of Lamp and Seafood Boulibaisse, they hit the flavors spot on. Towards the end of our visit, we were greeted by the owner (Mary) and her husband (Ricky), who made it a point to ensure that our experience was nothing short of unforgettable. We will definitely be coming back in the near future!

We weren't sure about this place because there were so few diners there Sunday after church (around 1:30) when some of local restaurants had long waiting lines. Food, service and atmosphere were all great! We had tuna martini which was excellent. I ordered a salmon BLT which was so good with a great mayo based sauce. My husband had the grouper sandwich special with jalapeño slaw and enjoyed it a lot. Bread was fresh for both sandwiches. We both had some of the best fries we've eaten in a while. Chef makes his own ketchup - it was fabulous. We were told he makes all the sauces/condiments from scratch. Molly was our waitress and was attentive without being overbearing. We got to sit outside next to the fountain and enjoyed the beautiful weather and good food. Total without tip came to about $36. Highly recommend.

We were quite impressed with ambiance, service and quality of food. I would highly recommend Joe's and will visit again next time we're in Fernandina Beach. The filet with crab meat topping was excellent and the creme brulee was a perfect end to a very nice meal.

Been coming here for several years and ignored this restaurant because of the "bistro" reference. Wife and I went tonight, because of proximity to hotel, and had my taste buds knocked off. I had the grouper special over creamed corn with stone ground grits that made me wish for more. Wife had crab cakes and corn chowder soup with andoulee sausage that she loved . Had the spinach and orange salad with macademinas , they ran out of those nuts and substituted pecans, winner all around. Don't let my loss be yours, go enjoy and look for us to come back...
