A hidden gem in Old Orchard
New roof top deck just added this year great views of the ocean. Great place to have drinks and apps. The food is very good and they have a very nice dinning room downstairs. Nice place to take your friends.

Everything was lovely from the service to the ambiance! The only critique we have is that there was only one little piece of lobster meat in the bisque. For the price of it, there should've been more meat in the lobster bisque.

I had the 1 3/4lb lobster. It was the best! The fiddles appetizer was pretty good as well. Downstairs is fairly stuffy, however, they only serve lobster on the lower level. We went upstairs following the meal and had drinks. I would recommend it!

We never have a bad experience at Joseph‘s by the sea! If there was one thing we would change, and it’s minor, it would be to have sausage patties instead of the links. The links always taste greasy but I love the crispy bacon so it’s not a big issue. The service is always tops!!

Outstanding location in Old Orchard Beach. The food is excellent, as always. The new rooftop bar, "The Roof," is an awesome addition. Talk about views!

Beautiful roof and great food. Seems like a more limited menu in the roof, but everything we had was still good. We tried the cordon blue panini, Beach burger, lobster seafood cake, chicken quesadillas, kid's baked haddock and all were good.

Great atmosphere and great service. The bison meatloaf my husband ordered was delicious. I was disappointed with the chicken breast with mozzarella cheese and tomatoes, that I ordered. It didn't have much flavor to it. We have eaten here before and that was the first meal I didn't find appealing.
