I love it when I go to a restaurant and the ambiance is romantic & comfortable & the food is tastier that my home cooked meals. It's hard to find, but you can find it as Joseph's. The food is worth the price.

Lovely restaurant with a great ocean view. Good food and drinks. A little expensive, but one of the nicest in Old Orchard Beach.

Worth the short drive for locals and worth the visit for tourists. Food was excellent. My dining partner had a delightful Orechietta Pasta Maison that was loaded with varied delectable seafoods and I had Sauteed Chicken with mozzarella, tomatoes in an herb sauce. We also ordered the shrimp cocktail. The shrimp were (to our amusement) HUGE! Wonderful wine and cocktail... More

We went here for breakfast. We stood at the front as serval workers walked by and saw us but never acknowledged us or tell us that it would be a minute. The view is really nice in the dining area. Kids enjoyed their waffles/pancakes and the omelets were decent. Would be nice to have a lobster or a Benedict option... More

Service was okay, but food was cold, and wasn't really tasty. It had a nice view... I would not go back or recommend . We had 6 people and they all agree.

We arrived at 4:50pm for a 5pm reservation. Someone was mopping the floor at the entrance and told us to be careful while the bartender came over and in a very curt tone told us they don't open until 5! Not the most gracious welcome. We were eventually seated on the patio with a spectacular view of the ocean, green... More

Food was great! We loved the olive butter, and our entrées were delicious. My wife and kids had breakfast there, and thought the food was good.

We enjoyed the daily breakfast at Joseph's all three mornings of our vacation in Old Orchard Beach. The service was excellent, food even better, and the ocean views from the covered patio were delightful. It was a little expensive (nearly $60 for breakfast for four, including tip) but we ate well and had a very relaxing start to each day... More
