Orchard Beech was a last ditch effort to find a hotel on our trip up the Maine coast, its sort of a redneck rivera kind of destination LOL. Joseph's was the one stand out restaurant we found, nice location easy to get a reservation......price might be why! We enjoyed the view and overall it was a good choice.

Had an EXCELLENT meal here. The service was phenomenal and the kitchen extremely accommodating. My daughter is a vegetarian and they turned their pasta maison into an absolutely delightful dish which should really be on their regular menu. The dinner started with breads and butters that could have been a fabulous meal all on their own. We had excellent salads... More

A good seafood restaurant. Not an exceptionally vast selection, but good food, I've been there with my wife and with our kids. Quality dining, to be sure

My husband and I went here for dinner and the atmosphere is wonderful, the staff is amazing. However I ordered stuffed lobster that was very overdone and he ordered the bison meatloaf also overdone. ultimately not worth the money.

Joseph's was recommended to us because it was one of the few restaurants still open. It is definitely a fine dining restaurant with higher prices. The view was wonderful. We were seated by the windows facing the ocean. The dining room was beautifully decorated and soothing music filled the air. I started by ordering the Lobster Potato Pancake. The potato... More

This was a first time visit to Joseph's for all three of our party. First impression walking in was positive. The small bar area is very attractive as is the entire restaurant. We were seated quickly but waited quite a while for someone to greet us and serve us water. The server finally arrived, served water, left a beverage list... More

This restaurant has a great view, peaceful environment and good food. It is great for a special occasion or a good intimate environment. I could have sat and looked out the window for hours. The service was great.

My husband and I went for dinner at Joseph's in August. The food and atmosphere is fantastic! We ate in the garden room which overlooks the sea. This is an upscale restaurant so the meal was not inexpensive, however, it was worth it. We returned for breakfast our last morning and regret that we waited until the last day. The... More

I had a whole steamed lobster which I had never had before but wanted the Maine experience. The waitress was awesome helping me navigate how to eat it. My husband had the duck which he said was ok. Lobster bisque could have had more lobster chunks but the soup base was tasty. The dark angel dessert drink was very good!... More
