48th Anniversary Dinner

My husband & I were married here on June 17th and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect day! Erica & Louise did an outstanding job putting everything together and keeping us sane. Also, the food was delicious! We will be returning again sometime before this year ends. I will recommend this place over and over again!

Breakfast review only - the options were great and everything was delicious! It was also much cheaper than I thought it would be, considering the location. The strawberry belgian waffle was delicious, as was the Mariner's Breakfast. I would definitely come here again.On a side note, the location is beautiful. We were there on the mor ... read more

We celebrated several special occasions all rolled into one: 53 wedding anniversary, 2 birthdays, and Father's Day. We had a lovely table by a window overlooking the dunes and ocean, the waitress was great and the food was outstanding. We had such a wonderful evening.

My son took me to Joseph's for Mother's Day brunch which unfortunately ended at 1:00 PM just as we arrived. However we had a great lunch. Since I was looking for something light, I ordered an appetizer salad and added the salmon for protein. It was fresh and delicious. My son enjoyed the "surf and turf" of lobster and tenderloin.

Quiet, professionally staffed restaurant, they knew what they were doing. We had a delicious meal for a special night for the two of us. I had the orchiette with seafood and they were happy to accommodate my request for it to be made without shrimp. Salads were delicious as well with home made dressings.

Joseph's is by far the best place in Old Orchard Beach for a special meal while on vacation. They have a great menu and the service is incredible. I always request a table by the front window which is right on the ocean! It is a bit pricey but worth every penny.
