Always willing to accommodate a big group

We've gone here several times without a reservation with a large group and they are always willing to work with us. The word is good, nothing fancy but fresh and tasty. Portion sizes are good. Everyone enjoys the prime rib. Me, I eat the salmon.

I was visiting a local college with my wife an son and found Joseph's Fireside Steakhouse on Trip Advisor. We sat in a porch like setting with a view of the golf course. The waitress was very friendly and provided excellent service. I had the NY Strip and it was one of the best steaks that I have had in... More

We went for lunch and sat at the bar. Ordered our food and we were not very impressed with the bartender or some of the servers. The bartender really didn't pay much attention to us and what really didn't sit well was the fact that the bartender and some of the servers where taking food from one of the customers... More

We have eaten at Joseph's Fireside Steakhouse just about every time we get to Waterville and have always been impressed. However, this visit was even better. The filet Mignon (8 oz) was just superb beyond description. It was almost unnecessary to include a knife as it was unbelievably tender and a fork alone was almost enough. It was very flavorful,...

I love this place! The food is excellent! The restaurant and the "enclosed porch" overlooking the golf course are cozy & comfortable! One of our favorite places to eat lunch!

Steaks and burgers are the best here. They do meat really well, starting off with terrific cuts of meat. We were there on a very bust Thursday night near the holidays but service was excellent.

Myself being a steak lover, a friend took me here for my birthday. This is a popular restaurant so we called ahead to put our name on the waiting list. We only had about a 10-15 minute wait for a table (reasonable considering it's a busy place and we had called ahead). The atmosphere is nice, very spacious and a... More

Had GPS directions to a different restaurant in the area but found it closed upon our arrival. Joseph's came up as something close by so we thought we'd take the chance. Very glad we did.

They have a great prime rib. Not the cheapest place but sure is the best restaurant in town, in my opinion.
