Just what a night out should be

Joshua's was EXACTLY right: the ambiance, the lighting, the noise level, the service and the food is AMAZINGLY delicious. We popped in right before 7 pm without reservations (if you want a table you need reservations) and slipped into a cozy corner of the bar on my birthday. The regular menu... read more

My husband and I arrived at Joshua's on a Tuesday, at 5:00 pm. Our waitress greeted us, and took out drink order. She explained that all meals are cooked to order, so our dinner would be ready in 30 minutes. I ordered the tenderloin of pork, while my husband had the special of the day, halibut. After enjoying our drinks,... More

This is by far one of the best restaurants I have ever been to. Starting with our Martini to the dessert. Everything here is fresh, well prepared and delicious . We have been here quite a few times and tried many different things on the menu and all were outstanding. Great job Joshua and your crew !!!!!

Whatever else you do in Maine, Do not miss a dinner @ Joshua's. Fabulous food and service. I had the best Salmon I have ever eaten and thoroughly enjoyed all the service and food.

Our favorite fine-dining establishment in southern seacoast Maine. We stop here whenever we're in the area. Family-run, with Joshua in the kitchen while mom & dad run the front of the house. Food has always been excellent, as has been the service. Our server told us she has been there since day one. I like a good pork tenderloin dish,... More

Ok - they will tell you it's not for kids - and they are right. It's an adult's place for good food, pleasant atmosphere, and the prices - while not budget - are at least not insane. We didn't have reservations - and ended up at the bar. A pleasant place - I had fun chatting with our fellow dinners... More

Joshua's has been a favorite stop while on our Maine vacation each year. The food is always fresh; cooked and served to perfection; the service is super with a friendly, family run staff; the location is easy to reach; and its a treat every time. Be sure to call about a week in advance because it is popular among locals... More

We overheard another couple at our B&B raving about the delicious food and strawberry Cosmos they had the night before and knew we had to give Joshua's a try! They warned us it was booked out for weeks so get there early and get a seat at the bar. We were lucky to snag one of the two high top... More

My wife and I make it a point to always go to Joshua's when we come to Ogunquit on our yearly vacation. We have eaten here ever since they opened,11 years ago. We have never had anything approaching a less than perfect meal. This time around I had the rack of lamb and she tried the chicken. Both were scrumptious!... More

I have now eaten at Joshua's twice this month. It is simply the best restaurant in the area. Fantastic food, well priced. Every aspect of dinning at Joshua's is superb..I live three hours away, and would make the drive just for dinner
