Best Filet in the Corridor. Service is consistently good and valet parking is a nice bonus. When I am in the mood for steak, I do not hesitate to embark on the 27 mile journey to Joseph's to enjoy steak the way it should be.

We visit twice per month and love eating at the bar. The drinks are great, try the Old Fashioned. The steaks and fish are fantastic.

Excellent service, delicious cocktails, great steak and absolutely leave room for DESSERT. This is as good as any NYC steakhouses and it is not pretentious.

Hello, When we dined there it was part of a diner program. I did not see a children's menu but it is possible. Their online menu shows only the dinner choice, alcohol and desserts. Joseph's is an elegant fine dining venue... More
