good option for something fancier than the fast food from the pier. The prices are a bit higher than the usual other OOB restaurants but it is worth for a special night

Sometimes I need a good fine dining meal while vacationing. Joseph's exceeded my expectations! The view from the enclosed garden terrace was phenomenal! An ocean view with a nice cool ocean breeze and outstanding service was just what I was looking for. I had the pasta with pieces of mussels, shrimp and salmon. I would describe the sauce as a...

The food was way overpriced, and services were really poor. When the server brought the beers to us, she spilled it over the table also got it on my husband’s pants. And then when we were ordering, she just rushed us before we were done saying what we wanted. There were quite a few of us, so I got to... More

Old Orchard Beach is quite touristy and crowded in July. Joseph's is like an oasis in a desert! The building is magnificent with views of the ocean and quiet table settings. The food was incredibly good. We had a linguine with lobster and shrimp sauce which was as good as I have ever had. Nice wine list too! The service... More

Had dinner here with my wife and three sons. It was one of the more elegant places to eat. The service was good and the food was excellent. Next time I come to Old Orchard Beach I will definitely come back. It was a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for.

We have been here for breakfast and dinner, and I have been here for a large group for a brunch meeting. It's a beautiful place overlooking the ocean. There's a lovely patio and a large glassed room for great views of the water. The food is always good, service is excellent, and atmosphere is wonderful. It's quiet and nicely decorated,... More
