“Fantastic food, service, view”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

What can one say when you have the whole package!! The food is delicious, the view is outstanding and the service we received from Jessica was flawless! She is a real gem. Hope to see her there next fall on our annual trek to Maine!

“Consistenly good”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

Whenever we stay in Ocean Park, we make a point to dine at Josephs. We recommend the mushroom torte appetizer, and the banana praline desert. We always make a reservation and ask for a window seat. The staff is very professional, and the food is very good with excellent presentation. The prices are reasonable for fine dining. We've never had a complaint and will continue to make Josephs a must do while on vacation.

“Absolutely Great!”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

The view is outstanding but more importantly, the food was just as outstanding. I've been vacationing for a week and have had only one other great meal while here and that was at Jack Russell's Steakhouse in Bar Harbor. Here I had the Charred Salmon, the fish was flaky, mango cream sauce perfect compliment, red beets and other veggies you could tell were from a private garden. I don't care all that much for rice but theirs was very good, ate every grain. I'll be back if I come this way again, that's for sure.

“Food as good as the view!”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Lovely restaurant by the sea, great menu with interesting choices. Decent wine list and the wait staff is friendly and helpful. It is a tad expensive but their quality is worth it.

“Best part of visit to OOB”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Joseph's by the Sea is a gem in a tourist town overrun with souvenir shops and pizza restaurants geared toward beach-goers - which, of course, is the point of going to OOB - but it was nice to have one "elegant" meal during our stay. From the front there is no way to tell how lovely the restaurant is on the inside - contemporary, upscale and as others have noted, spectacular views of the ocean. The prices are in keeping with an upscale restaurant but not unreasonable. We had a wonderful meal and look forward to visiting again!
