We went to Joseph's for dinner on 10/22/16. We were visiting the area for college soccer games that weekend. The restaurant was very busy and we waited about an hour to be seated. Once seated though, we were waited on quickly and our drinks came quickly also. Our waitress, June, was a hoot! She joked with us and made sure... More

Living in the area we enjoy Josephs Steakhouse and highly recommend them to outside guests coming to Maine for our company. However, within the last month we have eaten here twice and have been disappointed in the staff. I have always felt they had high expectations in their staff and have seen that go down hill. The first visit the... More

I have been here for the 2nd time and I was as happy as the 1st time. Joseph's Fireside Steakhouse is a rustic restaurant and good for any occasion. I usually come here for business, but i see a lot of families and friends coming here. I am a Filet Mignon lover and this one was just great. I had... More

Met some friends to say good bye after the summer. Hadn't been here for four years. The renovations were excellent. We remembered the deck, now it is enclosed and they did a great job. Very classy. The server, Katie, was right on top of everything. The new York strip was very flavorful. The ipa beer was an awesome selection. Josephs... More

Now my Wife Anne works here but that carries no weight on this post. My friends will tell you I'm an honest man. I went in for lunch and Anne said she would order for me......ok...?....trust right? She ordered me the Butterfly Shrimp. Me....not a fan.. until now! She brought it out with drawn butter and sweet chili sauce. OMG!... More

Thank you Dave, We certainly appreciate the positive review. Especially when it comes from the staff of an employee. They are often some of the toughest critics. See you soon. Rick Savage General Manager More

Four of us travel around the State visiting different restaurants. This was our 90th restaurant. We had Sara taking care of us and she was fantastic. We ordered the Peppered Sirloin, a Prime Rib and a Ribeye. All 4 steaks were perfect! Cooked as ordered and delicious. This will definitely be marked down for a return visit. Thank You!

Stopped on our way home from Canada. Chose this restaurant based on reviews and wasn't disappointed. There was a 30-45 minute wait but it was worth it. Meal was excellent. My husband had steak and Mac & cheese. I had the Fabulous Flatbread and beef/veggie soup. Everything was very good. The staff was some of the nicest I've met. I... More

Recommended to us by the front desk at the Hampton Inn we crossed our fingers and went there for dinner. Well, thanks for the recommendation. We had one of the best meals we have ever had while traveling. And, I must mention the excellent service offered by our waiter, Daniel, who made an excellent meal even more so. We highly... More

We are a slightly upscale Steakhouse that also serves a nice variety of Seafood as well as Baby Back Ribs. Our Vegetarian selection is sure to please the most delicate of pallets.
