My wife and I stopped her recently during a trip to Fernandina Beach, on the north end of Amelia Island. Joe's is located just off Centre Street in the Historic District. When we entered, we were greeted and asked if we preferred to sit inside or outside. We decided to sit inside. The tables have linen table cloths, the decor... More

Here's another restaurant in Fernandina Beach that has had some good reviews. This won't be one. The restaurant is a little small. That, in and of itself, isn't a bad thing. But it did make for things being a little cramped and with a rather noisy group next to us, made it difficult to have a conversation. It's not their... More

This is a little place to stop and eat inside or outside. Service was good and never had to ask for a refill. The Salmon BLT was filling the gumbo was not bad.

This establishment looks posh but at the same time it is kids friendly. We came here for lunch and loved the food. We had the Fernandina Mac & Cheese (very rich – we could not finish it) and the catch of the day (Grouper – excellent flavors). The kids had the regular Mac & Cheese. Service was quick and very...

The food was very good,we both got fish with interesting preparation. Service was good too. The lacking element was the atmosphere. We dined outside and there was nothing pretty to enjoy. Although they did try with a fountain and plantings.

The menu offers a great variety of dishes - seafood, steak, duck as well as the daily specials. We waited a very short time for a 9:00 reservation. We tried the tuna martini appetizer and a spinach salad. Both were delicious. For main course we The really enjoyed the grouper special and the small fillet both were cooked exactly as... More

A special night out with excellent food and service - Jules was the BEST! Friendly staff makes you feel welcome from the start - a tip from all involved...if your little ones aren't able to sit and behave, hire a sitter and have a night out!
