We were looking for someplace new, and someone suggested that we try Joseph's. Great suggestion! The lobster bisque was very good. I had to try the bison and cranberry meatloaf, and it was very good as well. The swordfish and haddock were also very good....More

We've been here many times while on vacation in Maine. It's always a hospitable place with "real" food that's very good! If the entree isn't quite right they'll make it your way, excellent chef! My wife substituted scallops for swordfish in the lemon & herb...More

The is a very nice restaurant It is set on the ocean so not on a foggy day you have a nice view. The food was very good with adequate amounts. Just a nice place to try when in the area.

Was my first time eating there. Had a drink at the bar at another time. The selection was great and the staff very pleasant. I had the special swordfish and it was cooked just right. Nice portions as well. Beautiful view out. To the water....More

Quite amazing scenery overlooking the dunes and the ocean. Very attentive staff and wonderful bartending. We have been several times and the food has ranged from extremely good to somewhat average. All in all, an excellent beachfront restaurant with usually good food.

Had the swordfish and pasta seafood combo - both were very good. Looking at ratings, yes it is a tad expensive but worth it! Kitchen seemed a little bit slow; waitstaff was attentive. Will go back again next year when were are there.

So glad we stoped. Music very relaxing, gazing at the ocean while taste buds enjoying a little pampering. Seafood cooked lerfectly. Sherrill was delightful. Please splurge on yourself for a romantic couples meal!

The place to go for a relaxed and charming environment with great food and service. You can get reservations online, but mine did not register. Reservations are a must on weekends, but walk-ins can readily be accommodated on weekdays. Our first experience was so wonderful...More

As others have said, casual vacation wear is appropriate; but, I would say, not beach wear.
