Nice Breakfast for Large Group
We were thrilled that, on very short notice, Joseph's could accommodate 18 adults and three infants for a Monday, Columbus Day Weekend, breakfast. They provided a long line of tables on one end of the restaurant with nice views over the dunes to the ocean....More ... read more

Another delightful Joseph’s evening! We have decades of wonderful memories here. The food was fabulous, beautifully presented and perfectly timed!

One of the better restaurants in OOB that's still open after season
Not much of an atmosphere; however, there are several tables that offer a view of the ocean, including a newly opened top outside deck. Ordered a boneless rib eye that was done to my liking, although at @ $28 a bit pricey. Accompanied by a...More ... read more

Nice by the Sea
The atmosphere at this restaurant is excellent. Quiet dining with interesting choices on the menu. There were 4 of us and all four meals were excellent. The corn/clam chowder is spiced up a bit and hits the spot. Two of us had Bison Meat Loaf....More ... read more

Very nice place, The food is good, appetizer was lacking. Ordered the calamari, it came with all kinds of caramelized onions and other things like scallions, but barely any calamari on the plate. The Calamari rings were tiny. The flavor was good but portion was terrible. At a high-end restaurant the portions should be on par with t ... read more

Joseph’s was great. Food was outstanding especially grilled swordfish and seared shrimp, and reasonably priced. Wine list was pretty limited as far as selection, and we would have wanted more choices from CA or OR as they are familiar to us, however the server gave us some good suggestions and helped us out.

This was a nice dinner. A bit pricy but one of the best in the area. We got the calamari appetizer and no one liked it. It was not crispy. I got the lobster sauté with risotto and vegetables. It was a small portion of lobster but it tasted amazing.  Very very rich. My fiancé got the salmon which was good but came with a very spicy sa ... read more

Great ocean front fine dining with a casual upstairs bar with ocean view deck. Excellent food in main ocean view dining room, unfortunately they were out of fresh lobster, which was hard to imagine since they are in the fishing community of Old Orchard Beach. However, they were serving a great lobster based dish, which was worth the ... read more

Joseph’s never disappoints. Always delicious food.
PaulaY via opentable.com - Sep 23, 2018
The stuffed lobster was amazing. The steak was not the best. Very boring, no flavor at all. My husband was extremely disappointed. He ate only two bites. The waitress did not ask if anything was wrong when he took his plate. Wouldn't go back just for the lobster.
PatriciaW via opentable.com - Sep 23, 2018
We have eaten at Joseph's several times and have never been disappointed. My husband's go-to is the Blackened Salmon and mine is the Pasta Maison (which changes with the fresh available seafood). The view is spectacular.

Great dining. On ocean side so views are breath taking. Entrees are priced in the mid 20's, but well worth it. Excellent drink specials, delicious seafood choices and out of this world desserts. Haven't tried the sunday brunch or lunch on the roof top but if it's anything like dinner, it is great.
