We had a beautiful anniversary dinner at Joshuas just before the summer season began, when I am sure it gets very busy here. The staff is extremely friendly, the atmosphere is excellent, and the food is delicious. The regular menu is somewhat limited but there are daily specials and I would rather a restaurant do a smaller menu and do... More

A gem of a restaurant located in an older building with space to breathe. The meals are worth every cent. We had delicious crab cakes, a green salad and fish for the main course. The halibut was heavenly and the haddock just as tasty. Well worth a visit!

Have eaten here at least three times and attempt to book a reservation on each annual visit to the area in May. Last year, the restaurant was booked far in advance and was not open on at least one day, so we were disappointed to not be able to eat there. I think they changed to be open every day.... More

My Wife and I came for our anniversary we did not have reservations, but were able to grab a table in the bar. I got the chicken and she got the duck. We also split the vegetable gnocchi. We were blown away with the gnocchi and the roasted delicata squash it was so well done it melted in our mouths.... More

I received a gift certificate to this restaurant and it was amazing. Since the food is all farm to table, it is the freshest I've ever had. My husband had the lobster pie and I enjoyed the haddock. The asparagus soup was so good, we took some home. We had our reservation for quite a while and you will definitely... More

I am not a vegetarian buy they have a vegetarian dish on the menu that is better than most meat dishes in other high end restaurants. My wife has the lamb and she says it is the best she has anywhere. Tough to get a reservation and I can see why.

This continues to be one of my favorite restaurants. We love to eat at the bar, but unfortunately you do have to be in line at 4:45 to get a seat, or hope for a slot at the first turn. Tonight we shared the chicken liver pate. My wife had the halibut with a saffron tarragon sauce, and I had... More

Had a terrific dinner celebrating our wedding anniversary. My wife had the roast duck and said it was the best she ever had. I had the baked haddock with veggie assortment. Everything was perfect and I mean perfect. Started with home made bread, great Cesar salad, dinner, and delicious dessert, polished off with expresso. We wish we lived closer so... More

Loved this restaurant! My husband took me here for my birthday dinner based on the reviews and it did not disappoint! Everything from the atmosphere to the service to the food was on point. The food was excellent as was the service. The restaurant is a converted 1700s farmhouse. Reservations are a must even in the quiet season. We loved... More
