The food, service and atmosphere were everything one would want. It can be pricey but worth every penny. Would go back in a heartbeat if it were closer to my home!

This was the second time we were able to get to Joshua's. Again, they were booked solid for the weekend we were there, and we were looking for a Thursday night opening. However, we decided to try our luck, and get a seat at the bar. Just as we arrived, a couple left, and we were seated in less than... More

Food is delicious. Standard menu with nightly/seasonal specials. Service is great. Slow dining. Reservations usually required.

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.

Always a great meal and outstanding service when we go to Joshua's. From start to finish, everything is first-rate.

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
