Joanne Carlson fuels the bistro with her culinary expertise and industry knowledge, from top to bottom, encompassing a quality experience that elevates Joís to new heights. Having been in the industry her entire life, Joanne has built an impressive resume, holding her restaurant to a higher standard. In doing so, she has separated herself from other restaurants in the area, and made a name for herself that holds a large amount of clout.Having been around for three and a half years, Joanne saw the opportunity in this location and snatched it right up to work her magic. She took on the challenge and completely gutted the entire building from top to bottom and re-did it in an elegant setting. She bought the location in December 2012, ended up adding on another building, installed two bars, and purchased a brand new liquor license. The extra step that is taken to pair quality food with a beautiful atmosphere can attest to the efforts Joanne puts forth.The food comes all natural, and to simply put it, leaves other restaurants in the dust with their fresh and quality ingredients. Raising the bar, all meats are hormone and antibiotic free, and the fish are fresh from the harbor, achieving the best of the best. The menu is Gluten free by default and the produce is locally sourced. From top to bottom the restaurant hits the nail on the head when it comes to fantastic dishes that go the extra mile. Brian Ruffner backs the kitchen and does so flawlessly, his talents are prevalent with each dish that comes out of the kitchen. The Burgers and fries are popular, offering options like the Blt Burger comprised of Pork Belly, Roasted Tomato, Lettuce, Bleu Cheese, and an all natural eight ounce patty. The fish comes in fresh daily and the ingredients are upscale but not pretentious be any means. Every dish is familiar and approachable but stimulates the palate in new ways. The Veal, Chicken, and Pasta dishes all hit the spot creating a full circle experience that immerses customers in a excellent experience at an affordable price. The restaurant also serves a bar menu that is available half off Friday and Sunday night as well as live music with Jazz on Fridays and Alternative on Sundays.
