I visit relatives in the area a lot after many people telling me how good it was I had to try it The golf coarse is beautiful to view. The waitress was very attentive and knew the menu well. I had the prime rib and was done to my liking just what I asked for. The Appetizers and the side... More

We had a coupon from a local paper for 50% off the second entree so we thought we'd give Joseph's a try. We are glad we did. First of all, the house wine was delicious. For his meal, my husband ordered the daily special, a 10-12 oz New York sirloin with mushrooms. I had the petite medallions of filet wrapped... More

A business lunch took us to Joseph's Fireside Steakhouse where no one actually ordered steak for our meal, and still found the meal to be fresh, tasty, and enjoyable. Their homemade potato chips that accompany the sandwich meals are a treat, and add value to these dishes. The waitstaff is efficient and attentive. The only drawback is the reverberant noise... More

My wife and I ordered the beef tips and absolutely loved them. We also order the sweet potato fries and loved them too. I had the stuffed mushrooms. They were good, but I would try something different next time. We enjoyed the fireplace and view of the golf course. This is the best restaurant in Waterville. My wife had eaten... More

I went to this restaurant at the end of May along with a couple friends and had one of the best steaks ever. The meat is fresh from the owners nearby butcher shop and was cooked perfectly as requested. The sides were tasty as well as the fresh salad. The dining experience was pleasant with not too much noise. The... More

Okay, so the name should give you a hint. Also that the owner owns Joseph's Meat Market on Front Street in Waterville. Go here for a great meal, yes, but really go here for good meat! The burgers are the best. When visiting relatives in Waterville, we always go here, sit at the bar, have a beer, order a burger... More

This great steak house is owned by a renowned butcher who's downtown store is known for prime meats. The filet melted in your mouth and cooked to a perfect medium rare. Nice atmosphere, not too noisy and it seemed all the diners were happy.

Joseph's Fireside is a nice steakhouse. It's on a golf course. The view is nice. The decor is rustic. The staff is unfailingly nice. It can get busy and crowded. They don't take reservations. The bar isn't a bad place to wait. Wine, beer and drinks are good. They're reasonably priced. The food is good, especially for the area. Entrees... More

This is one of the better places to eat in Waterville. Burger dinner plates go for around $9. The steak dinners range from $17.-$30 a plate and there are other options besides beef, if it's not your thing. The view is overlooking a golf course, so very pleasant. Staff was very nice. Food is very good. Ask to sit in... More

We had 3 beef dishes....Medallions wrapped in bacon, surf and turf and fillet.. The flavor was delicious and stayed with us for a while...no room for dessert. This restaurant keeps the quality in the forefront. They even have the best-grade gluten free beer- Estrella Damm Daura! Wonderful décor and over looking the golf course...Only comment is the wood cathedral ceilings... More
