My wife and I have only been one time and I got the steak tips. I WAS NOT disappointed. They were awesome. The menu is a bit pricey but you get a fair amount of food. We had a gift card we got for some occasion and used that. Place is super busy so that tells you something.

I have been several times. The food has been very good each time. I like the teriyaki tips, and I have also had the boneless buffalo wings they are excellent too. It can be quite busy especially on Friday or Saturday

Really great place. Lots of choices for steak, seafood, chicken or vegetarian entrees! Food was excellent, service outstanding. Must visit if in Waterville. People also come in and hang at bar.

Have had two different business dinners at Josephs as others in our party raved about the place. Have to say I found it average at best. Prices high for the quality and service you receive. Expect way more from a steakhouse than the menu options and the quality and presentation. Both times the staff has been lackluster and service from... More

Have not been back since last summer when the service and management was so bad. Went with friends for a family celebration. Service was ok.

Nothing like it around. Great food at a great price. Only place we have found to eat in the area which is not a chain or microwaved frozen food.

We went to Joseph's for the first time tonight, and had an overall excellent experience! Our waiter, Daniel, was extremely warm and personable. The food was delicious and the building is lovely. I highly recommend this restaurant!

I enjoyed lunch here with a business associate. The wings were good and the service was as expected. The overall experience was pleasant but there was nothing either pulling me back or driving me away. It was just another meal. For Waterville maine, it's not a bad option.

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.
