My husband and I have been coming to Waterville for years and mostly eaten with family nearby or settled for one of the chain restaurants in town. This time we asked the front desk person at the Hampton Inn for a recommendation and he suggested Joseph's. We had not heard of it and eagerly went over there (a Friday night).... More

We ordered stuffed mushrooms for an appetizer, and we waited and we waited and we waited. The waitress stops by to tell us she had accidentally entered the spinach dip and had just corrected her error, well we were starving and asked if we could have the dip. Okay, no problem, it was okay, not great. Finally our meal arrives,... More

This is my second dining experience with this restaurant. This restaurant is advertised as a " Steakhouse". Everyone that I was dining with last evening ordered a steak; ranging from a tenderloin to the sirloin strip steak. The quality of the steak was poor/fair at best. The thickness of each steak served at our table was less than an inch,... More

My sister said this is her favorite restaurant in Waterville, so we took our elderly father there for supper. It is definitely a place for steak with an entire page of the different cuts. I thought of Forrest Gump discussing the variety of ways to prepare shrimp and how he might discuss the menu. Father and sister both had steaks,... More

I took my bride to the restaurant this evening. We both had stuffed haddock with steamed broccoli and a garden salad. Also had Jalapeno poppers for an appetizer. The food was well prepared and served piping hot. The wait staff is top of the line and very attentive. The only problem I have with the restaurant is that it can... More
