Going back for dinner.

Wanted a good breakfast, so figured a fine dining restaurant would be a good choice. It was. Kids had a huge Belgium Waffle with strawberries. I had the Mariner, lots of food, very tasty.

My wife and I took a very close friend to Joseph's. The service was very good and patient with us as we made decisions over a long period of time. The food and drinks were uniformly outstanding. Will be happy to return.

Had arguably the best breakfast ever here a few days ago. Eggs Benedict was perfect and our waiter went above and beyond with his service and friendliness

Our first time here after living in the area 2 years. A fabulous location, with great food and service. I had Best of Both worlds which was a delicious filet mignon with lobster and a great sauce....My wife had seafood combo that also was devine. Service couldn't be much better, nor the view of the ocean.

This is a very nice restaurant, probably the nicest in Old Orchard Beach, and certainly with the best food. The downstairs dining rooms are better than upstairs from an 'atmosphere' point of view, as upstairs is just one big room, whereas downstairs has different levels, lots of views, etc. Food basic, but very good. The starters seem to have been... More

Found Joseph's By the Sea through an iPhone app and couldn't have been more pleased. We were seated by the window and on a clear day, the view must be spectacular. It was rainy and foggy for our visit! The restaurant itself was very nice, our server was helpful and attentive and very nice. We both ordered omelets and the... More

We started with a lobster potato pancake, crispy and flavorful. I had a lobster sauté with raviolis, greens, and various spices and it was delicious. My son had a very nice swordfish and his fiancé a baked haddock which was done just right. The spicy flourless chocolate cake with red grapefruit sauce was one of the best desserts I have... More

Absolutely! But, seldom do you get an "eggs and pancake" breakfast that offers toast. Generally, you have to pay extra for it. At home, when I make eggs and pancakes, I always have toast too. Don't you? The Mariner Breakfast at Joseph's by the Sea comes with Toast. Enough said! We visit Old Orchard every year and always enjoy our... More
