The food is good, but you'll never be able to hear your table's conversation if you have ever had an ear infection. I believe this to be the second loudest restaurant/bar in Waterville. At least the service and kitchen won't disappoint.

The building is rustic inside and out. The workers appeared to work together as a team. The menu has many choices for all diners. Steaks were cooked exactly as ordered.

I would like to see the noise level improved upon. The bar area needs to be blocked off better from the dining area. The drinks can be a little weak as well.

This place has quickly become a local favorite. When you visit you'll see why. The Menu is terrific and the natural wood surroundings give the feel of a real Maine Camp. Try Kevin's special Salad!

We were visiting Mom-In-Law in Waterville, Maine in July 2014, and she suggested Joseph's for the steak dinner I wanted. It's actually a really neat old wooden building on a golf course, that used to be the Pro Shop! Has high, peaked all wooden beam/plank ceiling and walls -- gorgeous! On the other hand, since the place was absolutely packed... More

Beautiful rustic interior with a great view of the golf course. Service was very friendly and accommodating, although it did take quite awhile for us to get our food, including the appetizer. However, once we got our meals, we had burgers, they were cooked to perfection, which made it worth the wait. I thought the prices were great, especially considering... More

To help friends celebrate a sinificant wedding anniversary, we decided to take them to dinner at Joseph's, a place they'd never tried before. A week ahead of time, we called to make a reservation and talked to a very friendly, helpful gentleman who offered seating "on the porch with a nice view of the golf course", and noted our request...

This place is really beautiful inside.The wait was not long, even though it was a Friday night. We had a great dinner of steak tips and two sides. The salads and rolls came quickly after we ordered, and the entree came within minutes of us finishing them. Our server, Holly, was very efficient and helpful. She checked in with us... More
