The ambiance was wonderful and dinner fantastic......great menu for all palates. We needed the gluten-free choices for two of us which were phenomenal including gf crackers. We've been there for dinner in each season and never disappointed. Ambiance, food, service is 4 star!!!!

Eaten at Joseph’s many times. Never disappoints. Good service , good food. Go with a group and go as a couple. Nice wine selection. Incredible lobster pancakes. Loved the roof this summer but enjoy the cozy dining room now that it is cold. Recommend!

Open for breakfast and dinner. Close to downtown Old Orchard Beach. Varied menu choices, all very good. There is also catering for events (weddings, etc) with a garden function room. where the doors can be open to a lovely lawn area only yards away from...More ... read more

Quiet Dinner
The food was excellent and all diners have a view of Old Orchard Beach and the ocean. Nice seating options and food and wine choices. Service was prompt but impersonal.

Pleased we didn't have a lot of choice
We got quite a shock to discover Old Orchard Beach was basically closed down for the season, and only had 2 choices of restaurants open the night we were there. We chose Joseph's and we're so pleased we did. The restaurant had lovely sea views...More ... read more

We went here as a last minute decision and it was AMAZING. The food was so fresh, plated well and the chowder was amazing. The mussels were also so fresh. Service was good and menu had a good variety for a small menu. I would definitely recommend.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
