Casual elegance at a beach resort town
What a find. Upper level is mostly open air with an overlook of the ocean. Casual. The lower level is mostly indoors with an open air “room” that has collapsing window wall. The staff is very attentive and helpful. The sword fish is the best...More ... read more

We had dinner Saturday evening at Joseph's with out of state relatives, who had been to Joseph's several times in the past. We all had the "special" lobster and seafood over pasta. It was excellent! We watched the moon rise over the water through the open doors/windows and it was so beautiful. Saturday evening was very busy, but ... read more

Good Find for a Casual Fine Dining Option After the Beach
As the other reviews state, you should come prepared to dine in a more casual fine dining atmosphere, and have a nicer outfit compared to beach attire. Table outside was beautiful, and the menu offers many other options other than seafood, so don't hesitate to...More ... read more

Best meal ever! From the bread and olive anchovie butter to oysters on the half we enjoyed it... then came the most succulent lobster we've eaten in our lifetime. Salad w fresh dressing and greens hit the spot. Excellent wine choices were offered. The grand finale was carrot cake like no other w Jamacian boozie coffee. Definitely a m ... read more

Took my mother to brunch. Her choice and it is her favorite. I was afraid it would be too packed being right on the beach. It was not. The space is awesome and plenty of seating. The upstairs only has semi high tops. But what a view. The roof deck is right on top of the original building, so high enough for all to see the beach views ... read more

Joseph’s is the best spot on the beach for casual outdoor drinks and dining with breathtaking views on The Roof, or a more upscale dining experience in the main restaurant. You cannot go wrong with Joseph’s. It never disappoints.

We were guests at a wedding 6/29/19. Everything about the day was first class. We had Sunday brunch with you folks the next morning and once again, you didn't disappoint. It's quite clear Joseph's by the Sea knows what they are doing! Don't hesitate to check this place out. You won't regret it. Oh and the roof top deck, bonus!

The food was excellent and they even had a kid's menu. The room we ate in overlooked the ocean with the doors open and a lovely breeze coming through. It really made my 50th birthday extra special!

We had a great time. Friendly staff, affordable brunch. We were running a few minutes late for our reservation, but they were very nice about it, and got us a nice table with a view. Darren Whitney was playing solo jazz saxophone, and he made it very special. Very talented and played at just the right volume.

This is my go to spot for dining.When you walk in the front door at Joseph’s, you are important to them and you feel it.Whether you’re going for drinks and appetizers or a full meal, everything on the menu is great and never disappoints me. You should also never pass up the desserts especially the banana praline crêpe.
