When I went to visit my cousin, it was her 32nd anniversary and her husband was working. But she had secured a reservation at Joshua’s in Wells, Maine. As she had been there before I was expecting a great time…. We arrived there about 30 minutes early and were greeted by the owners, a husband with a warm, welcoming smile... More

Tried to get a reservation but found them to be booked weeks in advance. Was told we could eat in the bar area as a first come first serve. Not a lot of seating there. Everything was cooked perfectly and the drink special was good too. A nice upscale place. Would be nice if they added a patio area too.

Our entrees consisted of Lamb, Filet, Lobster Pie and Stuffed Chicken. All were perfect. Wine, coffee and homemade blueberry pie finished it off. The lounge is a... More

There's a reason this is rated number one. Our B&B owners were kind enough to tell us about Joshua's about a month before our scheduled arrival, and offered to obtain reservations or suggested to get them ourselves online well ahead of time, as it would be impossible to get them after our arrival. The service was impeccible and informative. All... More

Joshua's food is delicious and very fresh. It's all from local farms which adds to the delicious taste. It's a real dining experience!
