Solid Choice

Relaxed atmosphere allows for conversation but with that 'buzz' of activity from a neighborhood bar. Good food, reasonable prices.

Best steak I've had since I went to Morton's in Chicago. Steak was perfect, waitress was wonderful, her name was Abby. Service was fast. Drinks were perfect. But let me get back to the steak. I ordered a Rib Eye , medium well. It was perfect! Thank you for the great experience, We will be back soon.

For a steakhouse, I've been disappointed the last couple times we've come here. The apps are average. Same with the sides. The steak was not good at all. I got the 16 oz bone-in strip. Medium-rare. It was gristly, thin on one end and way overcooked. It only got decent on the last couple bites near the bone. Really disappointing.... More

Went to Joseph's for lunch and it was really good. The waitress was very friendly and always had a smile. The menu has a wide variety of items to select from. An overall good experience.

We went out with friends for dinner. I should have caught on this is a steak house. My wife and I ordered the baked stuffed haddock. It was horrible, the haddock was dry and tasteless. We ate the meals and did not complain as this place was the choice of our friends I believe even though this is a steak... More

This restaurant could handle a group of fifteen. Service was excellent. The dishes were well planned out and were tasty. The restaurant was clean. Important is that a larger group can be handled easily.

Well, I gotta tell you, I was really shocked and disappointed with my so-called "dining experience" at Joseph's Fireside Steakhouse. I'm a former Waterville resident who now lives in New Hampshire, and every now and again, I visit my home town for memory's sake. My sister and I decided to take in a Friday night meal at Joseph's Fireside Steakhouse,... More

The Joseph family are well loved and active members of the Waterville community. I was excited when this steak house opened. Sadly, it's inconsistent cooking and poor service is a big disappointment. I have dined at Josephs at least 10 times, always expecting it to be a better experience than my previous trips. Unfortunately, the lack of consistently good food... More

Decor is excellent and staff are very friendly. The steaks are delectable and always perfectly cooked. Wide variety of side dishes all of which are very tasty. Great spot to go out with family or to go for date night.
