Went to dinner with friends to celebrate my birthday. Everyone had no complaints and the steaks were tasty and cooked as ordered.

It is very difficult to find a restaurant that will accommodate for allergens. Many places may provide you with a menu that shows which foods you can eat. I have several food allergens to include dairy, soy, and shrimp. I was greeted with a smile and shown to the table where my friends were already seated. I informed the waitress... More

We chose this restaurant for a birthday celebration and are so glad we did! The food is classic but inventive and reasonably priced. Our server Sara in the bar area was attentive, informative, sweet, and all around wonderful! I highly recommend the Artichoke and Spinach dip; the flavors in the dip are spot on and serving it with fried naan... More

The ambiance, friendly wait staff, variety of meals all equal a great day. Sitting on the porch overlooking the golf course you cannot go wrong. Nice variety of wines and beer and the food is excellent. I don't even bother going to chain steakhouses when I am 20 minutes from this one!

First let me say the food and service was very good and fairly priced. However, we asked for the house red wine by the glass and were shocked when the bill came that we were charged $10 a glass. Way too much in this market and just an OK wine that I would expect for $10 a bottle or less... More

The evening was saved by our fabulous server, Lorilee P. When I called to make a reservation, I was told that I didn't need to, since it was a Wednesday and "we won't be busy". Wrong! We got there at 6PM and struggled to find a parking spot. Our party of 6 was apologized to for the miscommunication, with the... More

A reservation is always your best bet. We accept them Sunday through Thursday all day and Fridays and Saturdays until 4 p.m. I am very sorry for the miscommunication. Many times we are just as busy mid week as we are on the weekends. Rick Savage General Manager More

Whenever I'm in Waterville, I prefer to dine at Joseph's because of the casual atmosphere, attentive service, and traditional American fare that never disappoints. I've tried the broiled haddock (just last night), which was light with a garnish of lemon and a delicate white sauce, perfect with rice. The steak tips are fantastic, and everything is fresh and seasoned just... More

Came in hoping to have sara serving at the bar.. wasn't working bar so i sat in her section. Sara is a very personable person to talk to and i definitely enjoy talking to her at the bar. She is one of the reasons i come here for food and drinks. The other reason is the food is excellent. I... More
