Great place for date night!

I am somewhat impressed with this restaurant. I like the steak offerings and the availability of meats. If you dont like open floor seating, then this is not for you. However, if you are having a function for a business, they have great accomendations for large crowds. The staff was fairly decent... read more

I am somewhat impressed with this restaurant. I like the steak offerings and the availability of meats. If you dont like open floor seating, then this is not for you. However, if you are having a function for a business, they have great accomendations for large crowds. The staff was fairly decent and mostly efficient.

Joseph's is a great place for dinner in the area when traveling on business. Locally recommended, and somewhat out of the way on a golf course. Had the surf and turf, great flavor of steak and the pan seared scallops were very flavorful. I opted also for the lobster macaroni expecting small pieces, very happy with the huge chunks of...

I have always had a good meal. The steaks or seafood is a good choice. There are nice tables that overlook the golf course. I just like a restaurant that isn't so noisy.i like to have a conversation with my friends while eating.

If you don't get the steak tips and spinach dip for an appetizer; you're missing out on the best meal you will ever eat. We recently just went to Josephs and the spinach dip was out of this world. We even joked we could have just kept eating that for our meal...seriously! The waitress we had was wonderful. Attentive and... More

Joseph's was recommended by staff at our hotel. The restaurant is located at the edge of the local golf course - we had our dinner while looking over the fairways as the sun set. A friendly, family style place with good food.

We were a group of ten and some ordered steak and others ordered either a pasta dish or fish. I myself ordered a pasta dish and thought it was great, my wife and one of our friends ordered steak and it was very rare to rare to even eat. Now others ordered steak also and they seemed to be happy... More

We came here for dinner mid-week and easily got a table, but it soon filled up later, so I would recommend making a reservation. The service is fast and friendly. They have a lot of choice on the menu. The food was very good and good sized portions. Prices are reasonable. The restaurant looks nice but is all wood so... More

I was so excited that Waterville was getting a "steak house." When I think steak house, I think Morton's or Ruth's Chris. But this is just another fairly decent "family style" restaurant. I don't consider it a true steak house, though it's priced as one. The steak in a "steak house" restaurant should be clearly superior, and the steak here... More

My wife and I have eaten here several times because the food is very good - BUT, we try to get there in the middle of the afternoon so it will not be so loud you cannot share conversation with your friends. Nothing in the place absorbs sound - it is wood, wood, wood and more wood. We would eat... More
