My boyfriend and I have taken several trips to Joseph's over the past six months. We only had one issue which was promptly resolved! The staff, both servers and management are fast, courteous, and efficient! Our most recent trip was December 3rd and had the pleasure of Lorilee P. as our server(she was fantastic!), and spent some time with the... More

Upon entering this restaurant recently, I had to don my glasses to look over the menu and decide on the best "fit" for me. The lighting sure sets a "romantic" feel and add in the fireplace, and you got a fine place to get away. Appreciated the fine service and great company while dining.

First of all I will say that the service (waitress, Ceyanne) was remarkable! Extremely friendly & fast. The food was very good, all except for 1 unpleasant surprise that was found in the birthday girl's gravy. A house fly....Yuck! Now, whether the fly landed into the gravy in the kitchen, or once it was in the dining room, is only... More

We went to Joseph's for dinner on 10/22/16. We were visiting the area for college soccer games that weekend. The restaurant was very busy and we waited about an hour to be seated. Once seated though, we were waited on quickly and our drinks came quickly also. Our waitress, June, was a hoot! She joked with us and made sure... More

I have been here for the 2nd time and I was as happy as the 1st time. Joseph's Fireside Steakhouse is a rustic restaurant and good for any occasion. I usually come here for business, but i see a lot of families and friends coming here. I am a Filet Mignon lover and this one was just great. I had... More

Met some friends to say good bye after the summer. Hadn't been here for four years. The renovations were excellent. We remembered the deck, now it is enclosed and they did a great job. Very classy. The server, Katie, was right on top of everything. The new York strip was very flavorful. The ipa beer was an awesome selection. Josephs... More

Now my Wife Anne works here but that carries no weight on this post. My friends will tell you I'm an honest man. I went in for lunch and Anne said she would order for me......ok...?....trust right? She ordered me the Butterfly Shrimp. Me....not a fan.. until now! She brought it out with drawn butter and sweet chili sauce. OMG!... More

Four of us travel around the State visiting different restaurants. This was our 90th restaurant. We had Sara taking care of us and she was fantastic. We ordered the Peppered Sirloin, a Prime Rib and a Ribeye. All 4 steaks were perfect! Cooked as ordered and delicious. This will definitely be marked down for a return visit. Thank You!

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.
