Prime rib, filet mignon, rib eye steaks all cooked as ordered. I had a cup of gumbo, (not bad but I've had better). My prime rib was perfect and served with horseradish mashed potatos. First time I had horseradish mashed and I loved them. Everyone else at the table loved their dinners too. Our waiter was friendly, professional and knowledgeable.... More

Came here for our 18th wedding anniversary dinner and we enjoyed every bite!! The salmon with farfale and barrel fish fresh catch didn't disappoint. Our waitress, Stephanie, was great with suggestions and her dessert recommendation was amazing!

We recently had the great pleasure of dining at Joe's 2nd Street Bistro. So many things were so right about this place. We were greeted warmly by the hostess and the manager.

I don't often write reviews but had to this time. We showed up 30 min before closing with one of us in a wheelchair, and staff could not have been nicer or more accommodating! Food was good, atmosphere was wonderful. We greatly enjoyed ourselves, most of all due to the friendliness of the management and waitresses.

Best lunch on amelia island ever. It was a beautiful day in the courtyard at Joe's Bistro. We sat right by the fountain. My boyfriend's father said the crab cake appetizer was the best he has ever had, and he lived in the Chesapeake Bay for a decade. The chicken andoulli wontons are also not to be missed. The crab...

This seems to be a place for serious dining. It was doing a good business when we were there, fairly late. Food is very well prepared and served with pride and even joy. The staff know how good their food and service are, and reflect the care with which it is prepared.
