Visited Joe's for dinner with my husband. Loved the outdoor patio area. Husband had a sweet tea soup, which sounds weird but was good and so interesting. I enjoyed a seafood risotto which was packed with shrimp, calamari and scallops. Too full for dessert.

My daughter and her husband are visiting Amelia Island in the near future. I would like to purchase a gift certificate for them. How do I go about that?

I would phone the restaurant directly to arrange the gift. I have done this elsewhere and it works out just fine. I can't see that Joe's Bistro would be any different. Very nice gift!
Do you have gluten free options for someone with a wheat ALLERGY?

Don't know as neither of us has a gluten problem so I would suggest phoning them directly to get your answer.
