My wife and I were looking for a breakfast spot in OOB. We noticed not much was available in the West Grand avenue area other than a small sub shop. As we got closer to the square, we noticed Joseph's was open and thought we would give it try for breakfast. This is hands down the best breakfast in OOB!... More

Had dinner last evening at Joseph's, hadn't been in over a year due to illness. It's better than ever, wonderful food -even had Fiddleheads for an appetizer, service was very good and of, course, the view of the ocean was lovely. Very enjoyable.

Long established with dining rooms overlooking beautiful lawns and the sparkling waters of Saco Bay. Recently added dining room serving outdoors with sliding glass doors. Very clean and well decorated. Nice breakfasts and so so dinners which don't change often. Small bar in the rear and reserved parking. Haddock always fresh and a good choice. Very busy in July and...

Quiet, professionally staffed restaurant, they knew what they were doing. We had a delicious meal for a special night for the two of us. I had the orchiette with seafood and they were happy to accommodate my request for it to be made without shrimp. Salads were delicious as well with home made dressings.

Joseph's is by far the best place in Old Orchard Beach for a special meal while on vacation. They have a great menu and the service is incredible. I always request a table by the front window which is right on the ocean! It is a bit pricey but worth every penny.

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.
