Redeem Gift Certificates

We have enjoyed dining at Joseph's for many years and are sorry to hear of its closing. I would however like to know how I may redeem a gift certificate that I received short time ago.

This was a wonderful family run restaurant. We took our daughter and her husband there for her birthday and everyone raved about how delicious their meal was. That was 3/9/15. We just read in the local newspaper that the restaurant has closed. So sorry to hear this news, as this was a wonderful restaurant in an area that had no... More

Enjoyed a great dining experience tonight at Josef's Country Inn. We were seated I. The charming Queen's Room, a spacious and well-lit room. Our service was attentive, and our meal was superb. The Pork Medallions wrapped in bacon were excellent, as was the Shrimp Bisque beforehand. Our party also had the off menu crab cakes, salmon, and Chicken Chesapeake. I... More

My Wife and I took my Son and Daughter in Law to Josef's Friday night and enjoyed a very good meal. Being a Chef myself, I overlook many small things that some might otherwise complain about. Having worked on the other side often gives you an insight to how a restaurant works, and how the kitchen works and their problems.... More

Service was ridiculously slow. They ran out of eggs for the Lunch dish that took forever to get out. This is ridiculous since there are two stores (one beside and one across from them) where they could have picked up more. For the time it took, they could have traveled to Bel Air and back! Sadly, we had a similarly... More

The atmosphere and the cuisine at Josef's is unmatched any where in the county. I love the charm of this small restaurant and the entrees border on European, Italian, and American. Go treat yourself to a good time and great food!

Overall a very nice experience. Could be that we have a 4:30pm reservation so it was not crowded, and it was gentle snowing so the view was nice. Parking was still easy to find. We had a nice table, and the view around the restaurant is pleasant. The service was good/very good. The food was adequate plus. Best part was... More

Joseph's is truly fine dining in Harford County, at its best. There is absolutely nothing negative to be said about this beautiful little restaurant. The decor and ambiance is charmingl. The service is excellent. The food exquisitely prepared and presented and every dish a delight to the taste buds. Of course, they are famous for their sauerbraten but the fine... More

We had dinner reservations for our Christmas Party Dinner at 730 on a Friday night. The bar was lively and the drinks were made to perfection. We had a party of 6 and all ordered something different. Everyone said their meals were great. I have never been disappointed when eating here.

Had not been to Josef's for a decade or so. Found it even better than I recalled. Even the Menu is a "thing of Beauty." All three of us delighted in our meals, from Signature German Dishes to Seafood. The Dining Room is not crowded with too many tables and our server, Robin, was first-class. It's always a confidence-builder to... More
