Every time someone from my family goes to the area we always reminder each other well in advance to make our reservation. Food is great, a lot of home grown veggies and spices, and homemade deserts. Our waiter on the last visit was a little odd, but he was still very good. Only upset by there no kids rule, will need to find a babysitter if i plan on going back in the next years! However I respect there decision to keep the restaurant atmosphere the way they want, and will respect it.

Excellent food and service in a very cozy atmosphere. In our party of 6, 4 had the nightly special which was grilled swordfish, while I ordered the chicken stuff with Serrano ham, basil, cheese, lemon zest and one other had the roasted haddock. All of the food was excellent, not to mention the home made basket of breads that were served in advance of the meal...particularly the house-made molasses bread. Everything is house made here, including the breads and salad dressings. Give Joshua's a try, you won't be disappointed,

Saturday night spontaneity was rewarded by a truly delicious meal, albeit in the bar, as the dining rooms were filled by folks with reservations. Our waiter was prompt, attentive, and certainly aimed to please. The molasses bread was so tasty, but not at all heavy. We shared a bowl of french onion soup, which was very light and a bit sweet with the mingling of beef broth and sherry. My husband had the salmon special of the evening, which he loved. My choice was the (very healthy portion) baked haddock with a side of mushroom risotto accompanied by roasted vegetables consisting of brussel sprouts, broccoli, carrot, cauliflower, and snow peas. We were totally sated!! We skipped dessert and coffee, instead finishing our cocktails leisurely. This is a place we'll return to again very soon!!!

Our third visit to Joshua's may be our last. Yes, the food was great and wonderful in all aspects, but the service was lackadaisical. Our waitress did not appear to like her job. Yes, it was mid week in the dead of winter and everyone is tired of the snow and cold, but in our previous visits to Joshua's we had found a very warm and inviting place with wonderful food. Now there is just wonderful food. No more warm and inviting. Even the bar was an unwelcoming place with a bartender who seemed annoyed we sat down for a drink.

Incredible food & presentation in a comfortable setting!
Have had the pleasure to return to Joshua's on a weekend getaway on several occasions. The 1st was a surprise; the 2nd, an affirmation of how great the food is; the last was just as great as the previous experiences!
