We love to go out to good restaurants and this one was definitely a great one! Good fresh made, fresh ingredients that you can taste in your paladar. This is an elegant restaurant, so you should dress well. The deserts are also home made and you can tell the difference! It's worth every penny! Service was excellent, great professional warm...

I had a business lunch at this location some months ago and the place is nice, service is good and my associate had a great meal. Me not so much. Food seemed to be of good quality but was pricey for lunch and, quite frankly, I left hungry. Great place if you are on vacation but if you are a... More

Once again chose Joes 2nd Street Bistro for our anniversary dinner while in Fernadina. And, once again, fantastic. We had great drinks, delicious apps (the clams and ahi martini) and amazing meals (bacon wrapped filet and salmon). Everything was wonderful, service was very good and manager came by to wish us a happy anniversary. This is a cozy, upscale, yet... More

The appetizers were the best, but none of our four entrees were very good. The fish was over cooked and dry & the scallops were tasteless- even though the waiter described them as buttery. Very simply - the quality did not match the price.

So everyone says this place is so good, but we have eaten there several times and while it's ok...we just can't warm up to it. We have had both dinner and lunch...this review is of lunch. Husband had gumbo...good, not great and portion was small. You get a better deal and a better gumbo at Carolyns up on Sadler. His... More

Make a reservation the restaurant is smaller inside. Enjoyed calamari appetizer, Fresh catch of the day, seafood pasta and amazing French cut pork chop. Excellent selection of cocktails and wine menu. Worth a visit.

Oh my, this meal was wonderful! Our first night in Fernandino Beach and it was pouring rain but we were able to find parking nearby. Conveniently located and easy to find off the main thoroughfare, we immediately felt welcomed by the warmth of the quaint restaurant and the wonderful aromas. Our sever was friendly and very knowledgeable about the menu,... More
