On 25 Oct 14 it was my distinct pleasure to visit this establisment. The occasion was my son and fiancee's rehearsal dinner. The appointment was for 8:00 pm but unfortunatly no one told the restaurant. So with 27 people waiting to be seated I informed the staff and they were able to seat everyone with no problem. The food was... More

Looking for an intimate dinning experience, water views, fine wine, and great Italian cuisine, all at a reasonable price? Look no further! Joseph's is the dinning highlight of our stay at Oak Island / Southport every year. Sound crazy since the seafood would seem more naturally the best Island fare, but I am telling you the best all around dinning... More

Great hidden away gem! Great little bar... Offers out door seating with great meal selection. A little pricy but worth every penny.

There was a 30 minute wait when we arrived, they do not take reservations and there were 4 in our party. The service and food made it well worth the wait! Once seated we were waited on by Ben, who is probably one of the best waiters I've had in all my restaurant experiences. He helped explain several items on... More

Went as a large group (10+) and had one of their private dining rooms. Service was excellent; an outstanding menu with numerous daily specials. We had a wonderful evening and is an annual visit at the beach.

This is a hidden jewel that is not to be missed. All of their food is expertly prepared and is delicious. Our waitress was professional, helpful, and friendly. They also have a very good wine menu. Personally, I recommend the lasagna and the creme brûlée cheesecake. Also, while you wait for your food, garlic cheese bread with Parmisan cheese and... More

Great food, staff and location. It is consistently great. Love the marina view. The lasagna is their most popular dish, so I had to have that. Was not disappointed. Go with a big appetite, because the portions are generous.

Joseph's is a wonderful Italian restaurant on South Harbor. If you eat on the porch you can watch the various motor and sail boats at their moorings. The food is excellent, and the owner, Joseph, won the best chef in Wilmington a couple of years ago. Prices are fail and each meal includes a salad - getting more and more... More
