2 couples went for dinner and all four were absolutely thrilled. We had 4 different dinners and they and the wait staff were excellent. High quality and fair pricing August 16.

I went with my niece to enjoy the amusement park and we got a hotel room on the beach. Then I wanted a really nice dinner and wanted it to be really good and in a quiet environment because I was now tired of the amusement park and the Arcades and wanted some quiet ambiance.. I began googling places and... More

We were staying at a nearby motel so Joseph's was very convenient. My wife and I ate breakfast there every morning and found the service and the quality of the food very good. Our servers were attentive and polite. The prices were reasonable. We also had a lovely dinner with friends of ours one night. Joseph's is one of their... More

We had wonderful Lobster meals here for our "big " night out on our vacation! We made a reservation which is something you need to do here otherwise the wait is really long. The view from the covered garden terrace that over looks the ocean is spectacular! The staff was really attentive.

Thre ladies enjoyin g five days on the beach. We followed the review suggestion. Were a little surprised at the upscale restaurant, but it was worth every penny. Wonderful mussels and seafood orecchiette in the lightest of delicious cream wine sauce ( just enough of everything). An outstanding dinner.

The restaurant overlooks the sea and has a spectacular view. The food is almost as good. We had the swordfish and haddock dishes. The swordfish was a generous portion the was perfectly cooked. The haddock was excellent. The restaurant was packed on a Tuesday. Highly recommend.

Definitely a good place for breakfast to break from the few fast food places around. The view is very nice and the pricing is great too. We had a very nice, calm and good breakfast. As for supper, you definitely need to make a reservation. It is in the pricy side for the quantity of food you get. However it... More

While spending a weekend in OOB, decided to try Joseph's for breakfast. Was asked on entering if we wanted to eat in or on the terrace. Chose the terrace and the view alone was worth the price of the breakfast. Food was very good and service was excellent. Breakfast prices were very reasonable. Would certainly go back again.
