Turns out that this was my favorite of all the places we went between August 7-14 Getting reservations during high season was impossible so we chose to do the bar scene. The place opens at 5 and we were there right after it opened and managed to grab the last 3 seats at their small bar. It seems others were... More

The food here is excellent and worth going for. You will need a reservation well in advance. Service was fine. Atmosphere is homey but some locations in this old house are noisy. My haddock was the best I have had in Me. The rack of lamb was also great but expensive at $39. The lobster pie was very good, quite... More

I visit the area a couple of times a year, and I suggested this as our venue last evening. I can't believe they can get everything down to perfection! I've never had better crab cakes, mint ice cream (yes, the make it in house), and an amazing blueberry cosmo. I usually drink wine, but I was talked into trying this.... More

Took my niece out for her birthday recently and had not been in in quite some time. Apps and dinner and dessert were all great. The only thing that wasn't was the cocktail my niece ordered. They got her something else and took it off the bill...the way it should be.

Once again My wife and I visited Joshua's and once again we were blown away by how good the food and service was there. They had appetizer and soup specials and both were fantastic. The soup was a lobster broth filled with haddock and shrimp. The appetizer was a bruschetta with fresh anchovies and a white bean purée. Both were... More

This is a restaurant that was recommended to us back in Connecticut when we were renovating our bathroom last Summer. The sales lady who sold us out shower doors told us about Joshua. When I looked it up it was number 1 in Wells and the website warned us to make a reservation which we did one week ago. This... More

Went here based on all the positive reviews we read. We arrived at 5:07 and where asked to wait until the exact moment the clock struck 5:15(our reservation time). We where one of 5 couples there at the time wasn't an issues of too busy as much as a formality. There was an air of pretentiousness about the hostess station.... More
