I was looking forward to this dinner and was so disappointed! I travel a lot and always look for great places that aren’t chains. Joseph’s looked amazing. I typically eat at the bar whether I’m alone or with someone else. The ambiance was great and...More

If you are a stake lover, this is your place to go. But it also offers delicious Salmon dishes. A great destination for couples or small group as seating is limited. Parking is easy across the street at the Capitol Mall ramp. Great for special...More

Went here for Valentines dinner, the service was by far some of the best that I have had in quite a long time. Sometimes when the food is not so good and the service is great it still is a decent meal, but that is...More

Best Filet in the Corridor. Service is consistently good and valet parking is a nice bonus. When I am in the mood for steak, I do not hesitate to embark on the 27 mile journey to Joseph's to enjoy steak the way it should be.

We visit twice per month and love eating at the bar. The drinks are great, try the Old Fashioned. The steaks and fish are fantastic.

Hello, When we dined there it was part of a diner program. I did not see a children's menu but it is possible. Their online menu shows only the dinner choice, alcohol and desserts. Joseph's is an elegant fine dining venue... More
