A word from Not Your Average Joe's Beverly
What does creative casual cuisine mean? Exactly what it says. We"re creative, because we reject the same-old-same-old in favor of tastes that are interesting and unique. We're casual because while our food may be worth getting dressed up for, we invite you to come as you are. We're all about cuisine in the sense that our chefs apply high standards of culinary art. There it is. Creative. Casual. Cuisine. If it sounds like your kind of place, then you – like us- are not your average Joe.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "I ended at Joe's for my first visit on a hot summer evening. Reservations were easily made online, and the table was ready as soon as we arrived, even though it was a bit early. The quickly served bread with oil and cheese for dipping was a fantastic way to start out, fresh and full of umami. The menu was novel, a little higher in price than you might expect from the decor, but the food quickly proved its worth as it was served. The scallops on the rosemary skewer were delightful. The Peanut Butter Thing is a monstrosity, though immensely delicious. Would definitely eat here again."

  • "This is a very good rstaurant about 5 minutes from North Shore Music Theater. Great for lunch or dinner before a show... and they give a 15% theater discount. It's a great deal!"

  • "Exceptional service as usual. Everyone so friendly! Can't beat the birthday deal of FREE! Most other restaurants give a discount or free appetizer but here the birthday meal is FREE! WOW! All you need to do is sign up for notifications."

  • "My wife and I notice the little nuances at restaurants. Not because we're fussy but because we both have had experience in quality issues and my wife was a waitress back in the day. We noticed that our server didn't bring out my wife's food but that it was brought out by the manager who explained that because it was a restricted diet (gluten free) meal it was policy that either the manager or a qualified server would bring out the food. It might seem like a an overkill detail, but it added value to the experience. The manager server was in way a reflection on our waitress who was pleasant and attentive."

  • "NYAJ's is a go-to restaurant that always pleases. We dropped by for a birthday special (free entree and dessert for the birthday person), and we had drinks (wine, G+T, Strawberry Mojito, and Sangria) and appetizers (Coconut shrimp + Pulled Chicken Quesadillas). Three of us had the Scallops on a rosemary skewer, and one had the salmon. For dessert we shared the molten chocolate cake and some raspberry sorbet. The service was as leisurely as we had requested, and our server was friendly and familiar. We have never left NYAJ without feeling that we got value and a good meal."

  • "The service, ambiance, and of course the food are all outstanding. It is one of my favorite dining venues. My wife had the steak tips and I had the Crabcake blt (superior !!!). Looking forward to our next visit."

  • "Generally NYA Joe's is one of our favorite places. However, this more recent experience in Beverly did leave something to be desired. My first entree (chicken) came out over done and tough. My second, a salad, had a piece of plastic in it. All in all, they were very apologetic, took my meal off of the check, and gave us a free dessert. The service was excellent and usually the food is as well. I think they were just having an "off" night - we still highly recommend!"

  • "This was my first time at restaurant, using a gift card. I would not have though of it otherwise, but definitely plan to make a return visit. My teenage daughter really enjoyed it, and it appears to be a great place for adult only parties as well as parties with children. The service was excellent. The Not Your Average Meatloaf definitely stood up to it's name. My daughter loved it. I had balsamic braised salmon which was very good as well. Service was outstanding. Managers also checked in on guests to make sure everyone was happy."

  • "After a visit to this restaurant the day before, my daughter suggested we return the following day to bring her Dad for Father's Day. I was pleasantly surprised to learn the we would get a 15% discount with our ticket stubs from music theatre. My husband really enjoyed his chicken piccata and top shelf martini. My daughter really enjoyed her burger and strawberry short cake desert. The salmon on my salad was delicious, and I thought the wine menu was appreciable. The only change I would suggest is that the house salad needs something more exciting greens than iceberg lettuce. My husband got a gift card for Father's Day and $5 off anything, another great surprise. We will go back...hoping to find some spring greens in my salad!!"

  • "My husband and I go to Not Your Average Joe's pretty often. I particularly like the beef tips, the chicken parmesan, and the chicken piccata, although I tried my husband's entree the other day.....some kind of chicken with pecans....and that was also delicious! They are very flexible with substitutions....mashed potatoes for pasta, for instance....which I appreciate."

  • "The steak tips at Not Your Average Joe's in Beverly taste delicious. I like them medium rare and that's how they arrived. Those steak tips are seasoned just right. My wife likes them so much she always samples a few to be sure they're OK. Our waiter was just right too. He was prompt and friendly, and signed thank you to my wife (she's Deaf). A great dining experience all the way around. PS The strawberry shortcake is to die for. Ahhhhh."

  • "Our dinner at NYAJ's was marred by the fact that we were seated in a back area (which might have been very nice) near a VERY loud table of 4 moms & 9 young children. The food was great, our waiter was good (I think he was inclined to stay away from us because of the kids at the next table) and everything was brought out quickly. I'll definitely try again."

  • "I received many birthday offers from establishments because I signed up to receive messages via email. Most restaurants sent email offers of free appetizer or dessert. But Not Your Average Joe's offer was a free entre & dessert. Can't beat that! Our waiter Joe was one of if not THE best waiter we've ever had. Great Food too! We will be back!"

  • "NYAJ in Beverly is a consistently fine restaurant. We ventured out to try the new menu additions, and once again we were pleased with the new pasta dish and salad. We have never left NYAJ without feeling that it was a special treat at a very good price. On the wine list they have added a large pour (9 oz) to the glass and bottle offerings, which is an attractive feature. The bread with olive oil, parmesan, and hot pepper flake dipping sauce is awesome. I don't think that I could ever eat a multi course meal at NYAJ, because the servings are ample enough to split between two persons if you did that. So count on taking home a doggie bag if you do so. NYAJ is consistently innovative with fresh ingredients, cooked only after one orders. Bravo!"

  • "Food can be hit or miss. I love the buffalo Caribbean chicken tender appetizer. The first plate that came out was clearly burned but the waitress convinced us to try - yup burned. The second batch was slightly less and we ate them. When they gave us the bill they had deducted them but I really would have preferred to have them cooked correctly - I didn't go out looking for free food."

  • "A group of 5 went before attending a theater performance. We were seated early for our reservation. Everyone enjoyed their entrees - scallops, chicken, and enchilladas. Wine list has a nice, moderately priced selection. Service was friendly and prompt. It fits the bill for a timely, filling meal."

  • "Everyone enjoyed their choices of meals: Chicken Oscar, Rosemary Scallops and Mustard Crusted Chicken. I always appreciate that they have a gluten-free menu, right down to the bread. We didn't feel rushed, considering it was a holiday. The waitstaff was very friendly and helpful. NYAJ's is one of our top 3 choices when I go out to dine."

  • "My friend and I made reservations so we could have dinner before attending a show at the North Shore Music Theater. They had our table all ready for us upon arrival, a very nice corner booth they hold for people with reservations. Our waiter was prompt and attentive and when we remarked that we needed to be out at a certain time to make the show, he told us that the restaurant offers a discount for people going to the theater if they can show their tickets. What a nice surprise. It worked out great and our dinners were very good. "

One never waits for bread or the wine order to be taken. Amazing. We love this place--always great food and creative new things happening. Definitely an all-time favorite of ours."

  • "Normally I really enjoy Not Your Average Joes however this time I was rather dissapointed. The menu did not have anything that was a realtively healthy option. Normally there is a healthy fish or chicken option that you can make low carb. Also the menu felt out dated for the change in seasons. In order to come back I would need the menu to be refreshed and updated. My other problem was our service. The server was distracted and didn't notice that we never received silverware until we asked the food runner when our meals came out. I have had a better experience before at this Joes which makes me so surprised at this visit."

  • "We really enjoyed the Wine & Dine tasting prix fixe. Especially the starters (terrific nachos) and desserts! It was also fun having two half-portions of the entrees. The new ricotta/goad cheese cannelloni basil chicken sounded better than it tasted--a bit on the blah side. We prefer the butternut squash cannelloni chicken dish on the regular menu. The wine tasting was very fun--and great wines. Bravo!"

  • "There should be a space under which noise level can be rated deafening. Please read below to see why I could not rate your restaurant better. There has got to be a way for a restaurant to deal with this issue. Other than that, we always enjoy your food, even if the noise level is horrendous. I Know this is hard to control but at a table accross the room was a child who was out of control,screaming like someone was beating him. A dinner guest got up and spoke to the women who's child was behaving so badly. I felt that was the place of the manager to do so, not a patron. It was all I could do to keep my husband from going over and saying to this women, "Thank you for ruining my meal.". Unfortunatly, this is not an isolated incident at NYJ's."

  • "I love this restaurant. The food is always fresh and cooked to your liking. It really is not your average every day restaurant meal. There is a upscale look and taste to the meals in a comfortable non-stuffy environment. The Birthday club they have is incredible. FREE meal and dessert for the Birthday person no matter what plate they order theirs is free. I have gone many times for romantic dinners as well as smaller group gathering and the restaurant has always been accommodating to requests for quiet seating or booths.... etc. I highly recommend trying - you will enjoy."

The molten chocolate cake is to die for. We love digging into the bread and oil, a comforting starter. The service is great. We've had many different servers, and all are attentive and friendly."
