We went to Joseph's after another place was closed even though their website said they were open. Sometimes things happen for a reason. We had a wonderful dinner of bison meatloaf. The staff was very friendly. We enjoyed it very much.

Joseph's by the Sea is one of the nicest restaurants in Old Orchard Beach. Food is good but a little pricey but everything is in OOB a least this restaurant is clean and has a great view and good service. Breakfast is great and affordable. A must in OOB.

Old Orchard Beach with its pier, amusement park, arcades, food shacks, ice cream parlors, bars is a popular destination for tourists. Joseph's by the Sea is a welcome surprise that is a counter culture to its surroundings. The venue that opens up to the crashing waves over the sand dune grass is spectacular. The service is very attentive. For appetizers,... More

The best 'fine dining \' experience we had in OOB. Excellent menu and a setting on the beach although a little far back to see the ocean. Our seafood dishes was prepared in elegant style. Prices are on the higher side for OOB, but well worth the visit.

I went twice in a week: once for breakfast and once at night. The setting is much luxurious than other restaurants in OOB: ask to be on terrace! You will have an amazing view with moon rise, great fresh food and welcoming attentive service. In short: do not hesitate to go, even with young kids (they can play in the... More
