My husband and I recently had one of the best meals on our 20th Anniversary ever at this wonderful gem! From start to finish, we were totally pleased. First, the staff takes a team approach to service and that drives the evening home. Featured cocktail crisp and refreshing. The food, fresh - vegetables from their own garden, the filet tender...

This was our first time at Joshua’s and won’t be our last. The atmosphere was relaxed yet elegant, food expertly prepared with the finest quality ingredients, and Tom our server was excellent. It is hard to find a restaurant that is superb from start to finish but Joshua’s succeeded! The mussels and salad starters were great, lobster pie very good,... More

We found this place the year it opened and have gone back every year we visited Maine since. Happy to report that in 10 years the place has not slipped a bit since it's impressive first impression. Obviously they have built a loyal local clientele because we often visit midweek in mid or late September and the place is packed.... More

This place puts quality over quantity, but that is how all restaurants should operate. Don't get me wrong, we all still left satisfied after a salad (delicious), rack of lamb (my mouth is still watering), and the best home made ice cream around (I had the raspberry ice)! This is one of the few restaurants in the Wells/Oginquit/York are that... More

Fabulous farm to table restaurant. Make sure you have a reservation and don't miss the fresh raspberry cosmo if it's on the menu.

Reservations are required. We were seated immediately at our choice of rooms. We had the featured grape cosmopolitan (yummy) and a good bloody mary followed by a goat cheese baby spinach salad and a fresh roasted tomato soup. Both were excellent. We ordered filet mignon with fresh cooked mixed vegetables and mashed potatoes. Our steaks were cooked to perfection. We... More

This restaurant is classy, well managed and delivers a great meal experience. The food was excellent and elegantly presented. The service was first rate and the small touches added to the pleasure. Everything is fresh. We've been going down to Wells for years and have driven by for years without knowing what a gem of a restaurant it is. Reservations... More

Once upon a time, nearly every find-dining restaurant had the panache that makes Joshua's an amazing place to dine. But times have changed, and Joshua's is now the leader of the pack. Every thing here is extraordinary: From the homemade breads to the finger-licking good ice cream. At this place, it's not about merely food, but the experience of dining... More

This charming gem of the restaurant, hidden in one of Coastal Maine's more forgetful cities, is a culinary revelation you absolutely must experience. Joshua's is owned and operated by a family of organic farmers - "Josh" being the chef of the family - who made it their mission to bring the freshest, finest produce to the table. Even something that... More

We arrived to Joshua's before our reservation because we wanted to have a drink at the bar. Upon arrival we checked in with the owners and was told there was a wait to sit at the bar so we got drinks and stood at the bar. The couple that was ahead of us sat shortly after we arrived which should... More
