Gourmet Treat
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.

Great birthday breakfast with adult children. Despite the rain, the waterfront location was cozy and peaceful. We enjoyed the food and would definitely go back.

My family and I went to Joseph's for Easter lunch and could not have loved it more. The food was absolutely delicious, the view was gorgeous and the service was impeccable. A truly wonderful dining experience!

My husband and I went for Easter Brunch. As always the atmosphere and customer service were outstanding. The food was delicious - I was hoping for specials for the holiday but it was all from daily menu. All still delicious and I will certainly return.

Married here 5 years ago and we finally came back to celebrate our anniversary. It's ambiance can put anyone in a romantic mood, and you can't beat the view of one of Maine's finest beaches. The owners and staff are spectacular. It's a must try!
QueenFoodie via opentable.com - Nov 12, 2016
We are OOB residents. Joseph's is like an oasis from all that is going on around it. (Which we also love) The ocean the well manicured grounds make it a wonderful place. Did I mention the ocean. We have been maybe 5 or 6 times this year.

First time for all four of us, heard and read great reviews. Plenty of parking, nice atmosphere, off season.

Nice Dinner with a Great View
Joseph's was recommended to us because it was one of the few restaurants still open. It is definitely a fine dining restaurant with higher prices. The view was wonderful.

My husband and I went for dinner at Joseph's in August. The food and atmosphere is fantastic! We ate in the garden room which overlooks the sea.

I had a whole steamed lobster which I had never had before but wanted the Maine experience. The waitress was awesome helping me navigate how to eat it. My husband had the duck which he said was ok.

We went to Joseph's after another place was closed even though their website said they were open. Sometimes things happen for a reason. We had a wonderful dinner of bison meatloaf. The staff was very friendly. We enjoyed it very much.

Nicest place in OOB
Joseph's by the Sea is one of the nicest restaurants in Old Orchard Beach. Food is good but a little pricey but everything is in OOB a least this restaurant is clean and has a great view and good service. Breakfast is great and affordable. A must in OOB.
nikmatte via tripadvisor.com - Sep 21, 2016
Joseph's has never disappointed us! We frequently visit the restaurant with friends who are visiting from out of town and they are always amazed at the gorgeous view of the Atlantic Ocean. The restaurant's atmoshpere inside is just as inviting. Food is very good.

Best 'fine dining' in Old Orchard Beach
The best 'fine dining \' experience we had in OOB. Excellent menu and a setting on the beach although a little far back to see the ocean. Our seafood dishes was prepared in elegant style. Prices are on the higher side for OOB, but well worth the visit.

Old Orchard Beach with its pier, amusement park, arcades, food shacks, ice cream parlors, bars is a popular destination for tourists.

I went twice in a week: once for breakfast and once at night. The setting is much luxurious than other restaurants in OOB: ask to be on terrace!

In short: do not hesitate to go, even with young kids (they can play in the grass nearby while ... read more

Unassuming exterior opens up to a very nice setting. Porch seating as well as enclosed dining room. As one would expect in Maine the menu features seafood, but excellent choices for landlubbers as well. And do not neglect the dessert menu.

Joseph's is this wonderful oasis in the middle of OOB. It's hard to believe when you're inside looking at the gorgeous view of sea grass, the beach and the ocean down to woods island lighthouse that's ours in OOB. The food is great. The service is always good. But the view is spectacular. A lovely patio if you wish to be outside.

As it was my vacation, I treated myself to both an appetizer and dessert instead of just an entree. I am so glad I did! The clam and corn chowder was delicious and thick and creamy.
