The grilled Sea Scallops with apple and ham were beyond amazing! Just such a wonderful meal! My guests absolutely loved their fish dinners too! I can’t say enough good things about just how nice all our dinners were! It’s always great every time I eat there!

First time visit despite being in the area for quite a few years. Had Sunday brunch. (It seems that Sunday brunch has been a casualty of the pandemic at many restaurants.) Great spot right on the dunes at OOB. Food was good but not spectacular. Two issues: The online menu is different from the actual menu; that's a sure way to ... read more

Beautiful restraunt right on the waterfront. Rooftop seating allows for beautiful ocean views. The food wasn't great this time (omelette and burnt toast), but I've been here before and everything was perfect. My partner said his strawberry french toast was good.

Okay. The view from the balcony was pretty, food was average. I accidentally ordered a veggie burger which I ended up swapping for chicken. Veggie burgers aren’t really my thing.

Lobster roll with a view
We enjoyed a late lunch Sunday on The Roof. The lobster roll ($20) on a toasted brioche bun was tasty and filling, but it could have used a bit more mayo. It came with a bag of chips and a garnish of delicious pickled veggies....The view of the ocean and dunes can't be beat.More ... read more

Such a great view ! We were lucky to have a great weather for an October Sunday brunch. We sat inside but large patio doors were open so we had the beautiful view and fresh ocean air. They are a bi short on staff but the food was good so was the service. Definitely recommended for brunch if you are in the area.

We've been to OOB so many times but never went to Joseph's By the Sea. It was really great, nice views and romantic. Food was wonderful as was the service and all reasonable.
JayP via opentable.com - Oct 10, 2020
What a treasure find! We were looking for a local breakfast hangout, but what we found exceeded our expectations! The friendliness and nice service made us feel welcome after a spontaneous 4 hour night drive just to have breakfast in old orchard beach and drive back home. We had a lovely spot on the terasse next to a field of grasses ... read more

Lovely outdoor seating
We were seated outside in a lovely corner table. There is deck seating which was more crowded than our area by the grass. Nice view of the ocean. Paula was a good server. Mushroom torte was AMAZING!

We enjoyed a late lunch on a beautiful afternoon at a nice table outside. All precautions were taken to allow us to feel safe. Two of us ordered the lobster roll...very tasty and nicely presented.

If you want a romantic dinner overlooking the ocean, this is your restaurant. Large spacious windows open out to a beautiful view of dune grass and ocean. The menu is limited and slightly expensive but good to eat. The banana praline for dessert is my favorite!

Joseph's by the Sea is my VERY favorite place to eat in OOB.The quality of the food, taste and presentation is always A-1.

The food was superb and the atmosphere was amazing!. Waitress and wait staff was attentive. We decided to eat outside, but due to the chilly temps we changed our minds. The waitress was more than accommodating to our request. Highly recommend this restaurant.

If you're visiting OOB for the first time, this spot is a must for your breakfast outing! A fantastic breakfast by the water, what more could you ask for? Sitting outside, you couldn't get any closer to the ocean. Joseph's is the most beautiful spot for a morning meal, whether it's with your family or spouse. Exceptional service make ... read more

Visiting my sister in Maine and had dinner at Joseph’s. They keep menu updated, but still a classic dining experience. Ate early and on patio. Wonderful to see and hear ocean. Felt “safe” even with an 86 year old in party. Plus very accommodating with elder who has trouble walking. Make a reservation and go!
