We stopped by for drinks last night. The dining room was full, but there were seats in the bar. The bartender was friendly and the atmosphere was cheerful and cozy. We had a really nice time. The menu looked delicious, but we'd already eaten. Next time we will come for dinner!

Friday night and no reservation but they found a comfortable table for me. Server was super bright and anticipatory. Menu is extensive with lots of tasty treats on offer. Enjoyed the cream of mushroom soup (really a puree), a deliciously dressed salad, haddock with roasted vegetables on a bed of brown and wild rice (scrumptious) and enjoyed coffee and homemade...

incredible dining experience. All of the food is local and fresh and prepared in a way that makes it impossible not to eat everything.

We always go to Joshua's when in Ogunquit and that's fairly often. Barbara and Mort are great hosts and the food never disappoints, whether you order seafood, lamb, or vegetables. The food is fresh, the service is friendly, and unlike most restaurants, the bread is not to be missed. Reservations are advised for a party larger than 2 but when... More

As good a restaurant you will find in southern Maine - great crab cakes, haddock and filtets were great, fudge pie! Friendly service and atmosphere make this a great place.

Joshua's is the best restaurant in Wells and maybe beyond Wellls. Great for a special occasion or if you just want a lovely meal. The menu is exciting and ever changing. Last time there we had mussels in a blue chees broth as an appetizer that was ti die for. Service us excellent. Have a specialty cocktail in the cozy... More

Intimate dining in a historic period house. Cuisine is always local and fish fresh from the sea. We return to Joshua's every year, because it's consistently good.

We enjoyed dinner at Joshua's over Columbus Day weekend. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. The menu has something for everyone, but it's not extensive. They offer a pork entree, a beef entree, a duck entree, a lamb entree, a vegetarian entree, a fish entree, and a chicken entree...one in each category. They also offered daily specials.... More
