This is a pleasant place to eat lunch, but the food ranged from pretty good to mediocre. The best item was the pizza, with a fresh, chewy crust, pretty good toppings and sauce, and good mozzarella cheese. And it was priced right (at $12.99 for...More

We wanted seafood and Josuha's was the only place to get it, in March. We had grilled seafood platters, which were excellent. However, we waited 1.5 hours to get our food. The staff was very apologetic and comped our meal. I think our experience was...More

Came here for dinner. We wanted fresh lobster but they were sold out. I settled for a cup of lobster bisque. WOW! Turns out, it wasn’t settling at all... It was the BEST! So rich, so creamy... I had the Gulf Shrimp also. They were...More

OK...you're in Maine, so you have to order lobster. I went with the broiled seafood medley, which included shrimp, scallops, haddock, and lobster tail. Everything was delicious! The portion size was excellent -- perhaps a little more than a single meal, but not so much...More

Our first time here- had a fantastic lunch. Great variety on menu. Good selection of beers. The lobster roll and crab roll were awesome. I'd go back and order the exact same thing.

We decided to have a late (mid afternoon) lunch. The weather was mild for this late in October so we decided to eat outside. We all order the luncheon specials. The seafood chowder was very good. The fish chowder was also good. The all came...More

Not many places open after 9 pm, but Joshua’s was just fine. Good NE clam chowder, but the seafood chowder lacked depth in seasoning. Burgers looked like they had potential, but we did not try them. Good selection of local draughts. Nice and friendly service.
