Spent a wonderful evening at Joe's. Terrific selection of craft cocktails, wine and food. This is a higher end place and the prices reflect it so don't expect a cheap burger. We had a seafood risotto and perfectly done steak. Our server,Brian, was so knowledgable and personable and timed the courses well. We enjoyed the experience so much we made... More

This is our second experience at this restaurant, both times for dinner. Their rack of lamb is wonderful, and they always have a couple specials. Their portions are generous and their prices are in the $18-$29 range. You definitely need a reservation, as it is always busy. The only downside is it can get quite noisy.

Several of us had reservations for lunch here and could not believe the décor and how nice the staff was. The place was pretty crowded, but we had an outstanding sever, and loved the place. The food was excellent like the wontons for an appetizer and the steak salad and shrimp, ribeye and filet. They have a great patio area,... More

Joe's 2nd Street Bistro is rather small and quite busy. Better make a reservation because it's very popular and for good reason. The food is outstanding. We had the fish special, which was cobia. Very mild and prepared blackened, it was delicious!

Great meal, great service, great experience, just GREAT! My husband and I were staying the weekend in the area to celebrate Valentine's Day. We wanted a restaurant with good food but also an experience. We researched several and decided on Joe's. I called to make a reservation for Sunday evening, not sure if we really needed one. Glad we did... More

Wonderful food, excellent service and good wine list. The duck was soooo good. My husband had the lamb, it was very good too. Our server was so helpful and attentive. Great place for a date or special occasion.

Excellent food, especially The catch of the day and the grouper that is always on the menu. The Cajun Carbonara is fabulous if you like spicy and large enough for two meals at home the next day. Great gumbo. As a bonus they have a full bar and a reasonably priced wine list. It has passed several of the Small... More
