I believe I met Joe in 1975 when I was a waitress at Evelyns. I am sorry for the loss, thank you for the beautiful condolences on this site. Joe respected his employees . When you saw Joe he had that big "HOW ARE YOU?" You always knew you would be greeted. Yes, he had that great outgoing personality and he was magnetic. You could have great laughs with Joe, it started that serious look on his face, then he couldn't hold it in and he was fun. He was generous. If you had a cause you were committed to, Joe did not hesitate to back you. I will always love you Joe. Rest in Peace

Always a gentleman and gracious host, Joe’s aura of class permeated whatever place he chose to grace with his presence. Kind and generous, it was always a pleasure to see him at Monmouth Park when I would be tending bar at Lady’s Secret. My family and friends celebrated many happy special occasions at the Old Mill. In fact, any time spent there was like stepping into another world. Fond memories of a special time in our lives. Thanks Joe. May the Peace that surpasses all understanding be with you now.

Fond memories of Joe Amiel, a prince of a man, and the Old Mill Inn...Better than the days of wine and roses, those were the days of Joe and Eddie (as Joe called him) Sommerfeld. Together they created an atmosphere of warmth and friendship, theirs being the finest model of the latter. Surely, those were the "good old days" and the nights weren't bad either!

I send my deepest condolences to the family, and prayers of peace and comfort for the loss of Joe. I met Joe for the first time in 1990, and was so fortunate to play at the Old Mill, and Sallee T’s, for years. I was so happy when he opened in Highlands, his crowning glory. He was the consummate host at his beautiful restaurants, and we became great friends through the years. He was always a great dinner partner, and an ear, when I needed some sound advice. I admired his classic style, his warm manner, and that smile and laugh. I will miss him terribly. RIP Joe. May you soar with angels.??❤️

Joe....One of the nicest, kindest, compassionate men I have ever met. We were talking not to long ago about getting out and having lunch when the weather changes and planning a few small cookouts out my home this summer. I will always remember the many, lovely times with you, Terri, Norman, and Jamie over the years. Godspeed my friend until we meet again.

My sincere condolences to Linda and the Amiel family for the loss of a very special person. Joe Amiel was charismatic, generous, kind and intelligent to say the least. I was fortunate to be able to join him at many interesting events like the film festival in Charleston, the US Open with Bill Boggs, David Bryan parties, Danny Aiello concerts and just hanging at SallyT’s and Joe Amiel’s Bay Point Inn. His Kentucky Derby parties were also always something to look forward to. When he was honored by Big Brothers and Big Sisters (being one of their pioneering CEO’s) I learned more about his impressive history and kind, caring generosity. He was a man with a big heart and an extremely successful restauranteur who will be missed immensely by many.

Joe and I went back many year, he was kind, generous, and had a personality that filled a room with his presence. We had so many fun times together, Joe made me laugh more than anyone else. I will miss him so much and I will remember all of the great times we shared and all the wonderful things he did to help others. My condolences and prayers go out to his family.

To cousin Linda, family and friends---It broke my heart to hear about Joe. The world is a colder place without him. Joe was one of the most likable, lovable, generous and charismatic human beings to grace this earth. I had the good fortune to manage one of his restaurants, The Old Mill, for a decade and during that time Joe was not only a great boss, but a true friend and mentor. And for those of us who knew him well, what was most amazing was his ability to overcome any hardship that life threw his way with grace, dignity and without a hint of bitterness. For Joe it was if every day was a gift. God Bless.

Joe and my father, Murry, had a very long and wonderful friendship. I did not know Joe very well myself, but I remember him as always being a gentleman. When my wife and I would see Joe at the Old Mill, he would always greet us in such a pleasant manner. Rest in Peace, Joe Amiel.
