Best meal we’ve had while visiting Maine! My husband loved the painkiller cocktail and his ribeye steak was cooked to perfection. I had the pasta with clams, scallops and shrimp. Shrimp was a bit small but everything tasted amazing. The clam and corn chowder soup was superb. Service was fantastic. Thanks for a wonderful dining experi ... read more

Celebrating our anniversary last evening with an absolute delicious dinner. It started off with a great waitress who was superb. They didn't have the wine that I usually will order but she made it a point to find out from the owner which wine would be comparable. Both my husband and I ordered the baked stuffed lobster which was wonde ... read more

The food was very good, the service was also good. The view, what we could see from our table was lovely. While I totally understand that there are a limited number of « prime » tables, and we were given a window table ( closed, in a corner with trees and bushes blocking any view), I have a tad bit of trouble with a walk-in being giv ... read more

My first time here. I had a salad.  Delicious. $8. Then I had lobster over shells (spaghetti) $36.It was delicious. However $36 for four medium chunks of lobster is rediculous  I left so hungry. The spaghetti shells were what I'd give my five year old grandson. I would not go back solely because the portions were so tiny. Service was ... read more

We come here every October for our anniversary and our parents anniversary, as well as summertime visits. The ambiance and view is great, really the only fancy restaurant in town. The food is consistently good and we all had a fantastic experience as usual!

The restaurant has a calm and lovely ambiance. With a view of the ocean. The service was exceptional. The food was to die for. Everything was exceptional. First try the lobster potato cake appetizer.

Three friends and I were in Maine for a bucket list trip of one of our group, and we ate here on our last night in Maine. This restaurant is indeed right by the sea!

We were SO happy with our experience at Joseph's. We arrived around 7:30 on a Thursday night with our baby and were seated direction in front of the sliding doors with the view of the dune grass and ocean! I got the seafood pasta and my husband ordered the salmon - both were just fantastic. Service was amazing. A must visit!!

I had such a wonderful experience here when my bf and I went on a road trip and made this random stop for a nice dinner.

Overall, it was a decent experience. However as the other reviews state, service was quite slow, and we felt the pricing of dinner for the quality of food we were served did not equate. Doubtful we would be back, and wouldn't recommend with kids as the long wait for food certainly had them quite restless. In the end, we sat at 6: ... read more
