This is a small, upscale restaurant that wont dissapoint. Most of the time you will want to call ahead as they fill up fast. High end food with appropriate pricing for what you receive. Very nice atmosphere for couples wanting a better experience

Having a home in Wells, we dine out often in this area. I have found nothing to compare to Joshua’s. It is hands down my favorite restaurant. Highly recommend reservations

The vegetables and haddock were cooked to perfection. Large portions and the House Special Cocktail was excellent. I am so glad that Donnie, Innkeeper @ Haven By The Sea was able to make reservations for us.

Yes they usually have the Lobster Pie, although the it is special. As a lot of the menu they only serve it if it's fresh. You will love the lobster pie as it comes in a flakey home made crust with just lobster. Vegetables... More
