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.

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
