We enjoyed a great dinner on the outdoor rooftop deck. We had the Orchetta which included salmon, shrimp, mussels and scallops over pasta. It was great. We also had the dinner special of lobster and scallops sauté over pasta. Both great dishes. We stopped for...a drink at the bar first. Great bartender. The service was great, from the greeting hostess, to our server. All were friendly, offering help, smiles, and great service. Enjoyed the view of the ocean ( and early Moon) while we had our seafood dishes. Would love to dine there again.More
We decided to make a reservation here as we were told that you must in order to get a table. When we first arrived the host was very rude, but we overlooked it and decided to stay. The menu items are pricey which we wouldn’t...mind paying if the food was actually good and up to temperature. We barely saw our sever so we weren’t able to order a second round of drinks. This place is highly overrated for what it is. It wouldn’t hurt to have the interior remodeled either.More
Make a reservation over a day in advance but when we got there it was downhill. Took forever to get our food, the drinks were very strong and once it got dark we couldn’t even see our plates in front of us. There’s better places...to go in OOB.More
Our party if 7 had dinner here in July while vacationing. We sat up on the porch overlooking the ocean. They were well organized and attentive especially considering the changing Covid regulations. Service was good and we all enjoyed our meals. We vacation in the...area each summer and will definitely be back.More
As visitors, staying in Portland, and exploring the area, varying review platforms lead us to Joseph's, supposedly an "elegant bastion in Old Orchard Beach," according to one source, and "fine dining" according to the sign on the front of the building. Quite what is elegant...about a place that is no more than an IHOP with a view of the ocean, I do not know. Paper napkins; a lack of tablecloths; furniture, which would be equally at home in a fast food joint; tired decor; and garish carpet, that was probably purchased second hand when Caesar's Palace did a remodel in the 70s, do not make for an elegant ambience. As for the clientele - most would probably qualify for the worst dressed shoppers of Walmart. Who knew the quaint sounding Old Orchard Beach, just minutes from upscale Kennebunkport, is Maine's very own version of tacky Coney Island? All that aside, the food is reasonably priced and well-prepared. Considering most places have very limited menus due to Covid, this place has a pretty decent selection from which to choose. The servers are friendly, but, again, t-shirts and leggings, don't shout fine dining. This place probably is the best in town, but the competition is hardly high.More
We LOVED this restaurant.
For our 3 family July family vacation all of the parents wanted a reward dinner. Tons of great food in OOB but much of it is casual as it should be for the town. Joseph's had that more upscale vibe we...were hoping for.
They have an upper patio area with ocean and beach grass views, indoor dining, a back courtyard outdoor area with a grouping of tables and an indoor area with wide open glass doors with ocean views which is where we sat.
I was thrilled to see a great assortment of craft cocktails. If you like a spicy margaritas they have one that was one of my favorite margaritas ever!
Our group had a sirloin, filet mignon, baked stuffed lobster, surf and turf and a sandwich.
Every single meal, bar none was perfection. The lobster stuffing was packed with scallops. My filet was one of the best I have ever has with its dry rub crust and gorgonzola sauce. Everyone was very pleased. It was not an I expensive dinner but you could order lighter smaller meals or go for breakfast/lunch and take advantage of this stunning location as well.
There is a great spot in the back courtyard for taking pics as well.
I will visit again for sure.
Perfect Anniversary exravegance I can imagine it is perfect smaller wedding venue. Our waitress , Alana, was very sweet. Swordfish was tender and delicious. Generous plates heaped with fresh veggies and sweet potatox sides. Very affordable for quality. We spent $100 for 2 seafood appetizers...and entrees a glass of wine and 1 dessert. Cant wait to try their brunch and visit local amusements with kids. The only negative was the Creme Brulee dessert which didn't seem homemade even though that is the whole appeal of the dish. I think i heard the waitress tell someone else who complained that the kitchen was understaffed due to Covid.
We had a wonderful waitress, a table with an ocean view- we were just inside a room that had folding glass doors, which were wide open! Some people were seated out on the lawn, which looked very nice, too. We were celebrating our anniversary and...the place had a romantic vibe. It was very clean and they were sanitizing everything. Our meals were delicious- I had the chicken breast with peach, caramelized onions and Brie, mashed potatoes and fresh mixed vegetables. Rolls were served warm with soft butter pats. The spinach/ strawberry salad could have used a few more strawberries but was good. Dessert- chocolate mousse cheesecake was so so. Loved the atmosphere and the fact that they took reservations via open table.More
