“Exceptional experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Joshua's is easily one the best restaurants we have been to. Joshua's farm-to-table concept is perfect, and his attention to detail in the quality, flavor and presentation of the meals is very obvious.

“I wish I had gone sooner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

Went to Joshua's for the first time this year. It was delicious. The green beans tasted like they had been picked fresh. The lobster pie was the special and it was fabulous. My sister had the haddock which was wonderful. Dessest was great. Try to save room for the blueberry pie or homemade ice cream. Will go back next summer.

“Wonderful Anniversary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

Went to Joshua's last Monday evening. We were running late due traffic in Ogunquit and called to ask if they could hold our 6pm reservation. Hostess assured me that we would be seated upon arrival but there was an 8pm hold on our table. I assured her we would be done by then if they would hold for us. She was very gracious. When we arrived we were warmly greeted by the hostess who then told us not to rush as there was a cancellation and we were to enjoy our dinner. Which we did. What wonderful food! Everything was fresh and beautiful. Their breads are amazing...just wish we had gotten a second basket. I, a seafood & meat eater had the vegetarian dinner and it was AMAZING. My husband had the filet and he said it was great. Their dessert are to die for. The homemade ice cream was delicious as well as the pie & cake that came with it. Service was impeccable. Blaine was courtious, attentive, but not in your face, good at recommending meal choices and funny. Would recommend this restaurant to all. A wonderful anniversary dinner. Worth the 46 year wait!!!

“Good food, Great Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

This was our first visit to Joshua's. It's was highly recommended by our hotel owner in Ogunquit. We did not have reservations so we had to wait about 25 minutes. Relaxing atmosphere. Servers and front hostess (substitute person for the night) were very pleasant. Haddock was most and delcious. Vegetables were crisp like I like them. Fudge pie was fantastic. Not your ordinary pie. A chocolate lover's dream. Our middle-age female server was so pleasant and easy going. An asset to the staff. Highly recommend. Make reservations if you can.

“Nothing to add. It's as everyone else says. Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

I've eaten here three times now on my annual trip to Drakes Island Maine. It's fantastic food. You must try this place for a special night out. Crab cakes were delicious. Fine dinning 5 stars.
