Excellent food and great atmosphere steaks are great but chicken cordon bleu is awesome as well as the cheese sauce that comes on most of the veggies they offer

Not sure what happened but our server was pulled from our table and the reassigned server barely spoke or asked us how are food was, or refilled drinks. The only thing she was very prompt with was bringing the bill.

Joseph's always does meats well. I guess that's understandable from a former butcher. The décor is very dramatic with fireplaces, vaulted ceiling and natural wood overlooking Pine Ridge Golf course. The new added parking lot comes in handy. We've dined there many times before but...More

It's hard to find a good steak in Maine, but Joseph's filet medallions were outstanding. They were wrapped in bacon with a bourbon sauce glaze and prepared perfectly at medium rare. The sweet potato fries were also delicious, and my husband loved his filet. The...More

We are a slightly upscale Steakhouse that also serves a nice variety of Seafood as well as Baby Back Ribs. Our Vegetarian selection is sure to please the most delicate of pallets.
