Roof Top Dining
Joseph’s new roof top top dining area with great views of the ocean is an excellent spot for lunch. There are tables as well as couches each opened to the view. The crab and corn chowder was very good with a nice spicy kick. The...More ... read more

Classy place amongst lots of seaside kitsch. Beautiful open air waterfront setting that somehow seems private. Food and drinks were great; good seeing for romantic dinner or for a nice family meal.

Don’t miss Sunday Brunch!
It has been years since I’ve been to Joseph’s. It was always an upscale restaurant in Old Orchard Beach. Now they have even kicked it up another notch. The updated reception area, bar and general appearance of the restaurant is delightful. Of course you can’t...More ... read more

Great food with a great view. Be wary of parking. The lot is too small. Still a 5 star rating for the food and service.

Beach Burger at Joseph’s shouldn’t be missed!
If you are a burger lover try Joseph’s Beach Burger. First there is a nice thick burger, topped with goat cheese, habanero caramelized onions with the top coating of spicy bacon jam. The combination is wonderful. We usually have been eating indoor upstairs, with a...More ... read more

Amazing roof top dining
Visited Joseph’s roof top grill, which is new this year! As with any new venue, they are experiencing some growing pains. Arrived at 7:45 to be told that we could enjoy a beverage but no food order from the rooftop would be accepted for at...More ... read more

We were seated in an open un air conditioned room on an evening that was extremely hot and humid. Not expecting to as this was not mention when we reserved our seats.. .we asked why and we were quickly moved to a much cooler location.. no explanation but totally enjoyed be the rest of our dining experience!! Great food.

Our dinner here was excellent. We selected it because of the high Trip Advisor rating and the experience definitely aligned with it. Service was impeccable and the food was absolutely delicious. Next time we are in the area, we will definitely have dinner there again. Highly recommended!!!
DavidT via opentable.com - Aug 8, 2018
We sat on the rooftop deck and the views are definitely the best on the beach! Food and drinks were delicious too. Prices are a little higher than places close to the pier but overall it was great!

We have been going to Joseph's By the Sea for 24 years. We have never been disappointed. The service is great, the atmosphere is wonderful and the food is always delicious! The Egan's from Long Island !

Very nice place but a glaring weak spot
Joseph's strongest point might be their semi-outdoor dining room which looks out over Saco Bay - just beautiful. The menu is what you expect from your classic high-end seafood place - a nice variety of seafood with a mix of steak for the red-meat eaters...More ... read more

They Topped It Off - on The Roof

We really enjoy going to Joseph's by the Sea, at least once when we come for vacation in the summer! Great food, beautiful outdoor covered seating area that looks out onto the water. Had the swordfish this time, delicious, would get it again!

We went here while we were camping in nearby Saco with our 17 month old son for an early dinner. The waitstaff was incredibly acommodating for us.

Lunch on the patio
I had the arugula and spinach salad with chicken and my associate had the lobster roll. The food was good but a little pricey. The view of the ocean was the real winner.

Restaurant is in a sketchy area, however the ambiance inside and views are spectacular. Food was very good and service was excellent. Not sure we would go back because of the actual area, but if you are in the area, I would definitely recommend for a nice date night. And get there early so you can get a seat on the window.

We have been coming to Joseph's since it opened 50 years ago and it's a highlight of our summers! We dream about their lobster potato pancakes, chowder, fish specials, and banana crepes all year long! Sitting in the open room and looking out at the ocean is picturesque and a relaxing, yet "beachy" elegant experience.
