Everyone said the food was great. I had no idea what great meant until I had THIS food. While the portions weren't large (and I must admit to liking large portions), they were enough so you really got to take the food. If they had been any bigger, I would have been unable to to finish my meal because I... More

Our second go at Joshua's as fantastic as the first. This is top shelf dining. Weather in NYC, Boston or wherever, you'll not do better. From ambience to service to the finest in quality this restaurant does not get ***** (five stars) with over 300 reviews on this site for nothing! And when you get the bill you leave wondering...

Been on vacation here in Wells for several weeks and enjoyed my experience here so much the first time I went back for seconds. The menu runs the gamut from seafood to filet, they use local, fresh ingredients, and have a killer dessert menu. The wine menu is super reasonable and the inside of the place is tastefully done. There's... More

Three week wait for prime time reservations in summer. Need I say more. One of Maine's if not the country's best. Open for dinner, uses locally grown produce. Great wine and gourmet meals. Don' miss.

The food is absolutely amazing. We come here for special occasions. While pricey, you will certainly have one of the best tasting meals of your life. The service is so-so. We have had the same waitress twice now and she was not exactly friendly. Bearable, but you could tell she wasn't exactly pleased to be serving a younger couple since... More

This is the 2nd time we've been to Joshua's to celebrate our anniversary, July 2012 and July 2014. Not too fancy that you have to dress up, great wait staff, wonderful choices on the menu - home grown vegetables and creative entrees. Don't miss the homemade mint chocolate chip ice cream for dessert - it's out of this world!

Food was outstanding! The steaks were cooked to perfection and my halibut was delicious. I enjoyed the fresh grown salad greens and vegetables from their on site garden. The basket of bread to start off the meal was heavenly.....my favorite was the rosemary infused. Didn't have dessert but I can only guess that they were equally delicious.

Our first visit to Joshua's in Wells. Adorable building with lighting on the trees at night. Enter into a modest lobby. The dining area in the front is very nice with well spaced tables. For appetizers we tried the wood grilled mushrooms. Shrimp sauté, duck pate and beef tenderloin brochettes. All excellent, my favorite the duck pate and beef brochettes.... More

At JOSHUA'S you feel like the kitchen staff had prepared dinners for President & Mrs. Obama, but brought them to your table by mistake! The "grown in their own garden" veggies and their homemade maple ice cream are spectacular as are the presentation of your piping hot meal and cool & crispy salad. We look forward to meeting special friends... More

We did not expect such a restaurant on Route 1and what a nice old New England house. The atmosphere inside envelops you. The service with Jennifer was exceptional, she explained not only the menu but the restaurant's approach and philosophy and she was so pleasant. Local products, perfectly prepared is the culinary rule here. We started with fried fresh artichokes... More
