A word from Not Your Average Joe's Dartmouth
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

  • "FOOD & SERVICE IS ALWAYS GREAT, ESPECIALLY IN THE DARTMOUTH,MA LOCATION."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "July 4th washout allowed us the opportunity to go to one of our favorite restaurants and the specials were awsome. They never fail to offer something new and creative. Never disappointed in the food ro service. Outstanding staff always wanting to make your experience really good."

  • "Check out the monthly specials; you might find a favorite that disappears for a few months, but there's always something tasty to replace it."

  • "In sum,we had a bad experience last time we decided to go to NYAJ's but gave them the benefit of the doubt and tried the establishment again. The experience was just as horrible. The strawberry sangria was the sweetest, most disgusting lemonade I have ever had. We couldn't even drink the sangria because it was so awful. Two pieces of fruit and all ice. Then the manager came over and argued with us that the recipe is the same and didn't even apologize. As a bigger insult, the manager came over to the table right behind us and apologized to another couple for a complaint they had as well. Thanks a lot buddy,very professional and thanks for discussing your displeasure with our complaint with our waitress in front of us as well. Disappointing."

  • "My husband and I had a reservation for NYAJ with another couple and were promptly seated at 6:30pm. Our waitress brought us all water and the bread with oil. She left quickly when one of us called her back, as we had no silverware or napkins. When my husband requested Sam Adams beer, she said they didn't have it. He ask for Stella and she responded abruptly -I'll get you a beer menu. She brought it then disappeared, only to find that there really was Stella Artois on the menu. I ordered grilled shrimp appetizer and sirloin tips entree. In no time our entrees arrived. My grilled shrimp was forgotten. The waitress made an excuse that she forgot it because I couldn't decide what I wanted when ordering. I am anything but indecisive."

  • "We've been to NYAJ's on many occasions and this visit didn't live up to our expectation. Our server was distracted. It seems he had another table that had family members at it and while he was speaking with us he was looking at them. We were given the correct bill at the end but then when our credit card was charged, the charge was for someone elses bill and it was 4 times what our bill was. And the food was just ok on this visit. Overall we were disappointed with this visit at NYAJ."

  • "I made a reservation and was seated 25 minutes later. This is not unusual! Something always goes wrong when I'm here. The bill is wrong, menu items are out, the wait is terrible even with reservations. Normally were lucky if we get an apology and every time I say 'if the food wasn't so good I would NEVER come back' but this time the manger was amazing! This is a manger I've never seen before and our waitress was different which was definitely a plus! We often get the same waitress who literally always screws something up but there are some great staff there and it's much more bearable when we get them instead. Very pleased with the end result of dinner this time despite the mishaps. This team had it together even when they didn't."

  • "My wife and I have been to Not Your Average Joe's in Dartmouth numerous time, and have never been disappointed. They always have a large selection of drinks, including unique local beers on tap. Their pre-meal bread and dipping oil is the best I have ever had. I got the scallops on skewers with sides of spinach and broccoli and it was fantastic. My wife got a chicken dinner on their specialty menu, and she loved it, and took half home. Because it was my birthday, I got the "peanut Butter Thing" for desert and we shared it ... you don't want to know how many calories, but it was exquisite !!"

  • "Food is consistent, delicious and great service. If something is not right they fix it with a smile."

  • "the best restaurant period. Only better when someone like Megan is taking care of your table. Great food and service as always"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "I have gone to this restaurant several times over the years and have never had a bad experience. The staff is spot on, the food is definitely not average with a special twist or spin to each dish and the prices are definitely reasonable"

  • "Two summers ago we ate there multiple times. Each time the story was the same, excellent food, long, crowded waits and a freezing dining room from too much AC. I was pleasantly surprised that our reservation for 4 was right on time, the dining room was a pleasant temperature and the food still remained very good+ with good service. I do miss that Thai salmon, though, so light with different, interesting flavors. The steak wedge was great for my lower-carb sensibilities - just the right amount of blue cheese dressing, steak perfectly cooked to medium rare as I ordered. Looking forward to returning many times this summer."

  • "I eat at NYAJ at least twice a month. This was by far the worst experience I have ever had in this restaurant. The service was terrible. Our waitress had two other tables; one of them was a party of ten. She neglected her other tables (including mine) and only waited on the table of ten. We waited twenty minutes just to get bread and a drink and then never saw her again until we received the check. I had to ask someone else for utensils and a drink refill; would have liked more bread, as we only received two pieces, but was unable to flag her down. It then took her 15 minutes to cash us out. The manager kept going over to the large table as well. Sends a negative message to other guests that they aren't valued. So disappointed."

  • "We loved the beer selection. My pizza was soggy. It was not crisp. My husbands steak tips were very good though. I always love Not your average Joe's. We were seated promptly."

  • "I would definitely recommend this restaurant to all my friends. It is a happening meeting place. Male greeter was extremely friendly and welcoming."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "We have been dining at Not Your Average Joe's (Dartmouth and Seekonk) several times and have not been disappointed. The menu items are all carefully prepared and presentation that is fit for a king. Ahi Tuna Salad was great, Mustard Crusted Chicken always the best, Coconut Shrimp appetizer was dynamo! Thanks again."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "We tried their pecan-crusted chicken and a little neck/linguini dish, which were both outstanding!"
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "we must have had a new waiter because we didn't get napkins and forks for about 20 minutes - even after the bread and oil dip was delivered and we asked a few times."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "We have been going here for years and years. We have always considered it to be our overall favorite restaurant. However, the last two time not so much. Service is down a notch, and getting more typical of a chain restaurant. The food, for the most part, is still excellent, but with a few misses. My chicken noodle soup tasted as if the main ingredient was salt. I hope next time that it gets to where it used to be. "
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Love Joe's never had a bad meal there. Love the mustard crusted chicken "
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "My husband and I came for Winesday, and the barmaid took our orders. When the meal was delayed, the manager approached us apologetically and said that the salmon fell on the floor! He offered us salads and complimentary meals, which was truly unexpected and delicious, as always."
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "We frequent NYAJs quite often and having a reservation is imperative. That is saying something, it is always crowded and energetic. This is a testament to the quality of food and service. With that said timing is everything. We had a recent late dinner (9:00 pm) and although still vibrant with patrons the food was showing the wind-down of the evening. The bread was cold and going stale and some of the food was less than fresh. Overall the experience was comfortable but some of the little aforementioned details were distracting. As always, the service was excellent. We're not letting a less than exemplar experience sway us from returning. "
    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "Food as always was good. The bread and dip is the best around. Usually I rate everything as excellent but this is actually the first time I can say the service was not very good. Our server was not attentive and was busy standing at another table talking to her friend for long periods of time. As a result, someone else brought us out our food. That is my only criticism."
    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "Never disappointrd. Great food and atmosphere. Interesting ever changing menu. Miss some desserts but oldies are great especially peanut butter thing."
    Dined on 5/26/2014
  • "Even though I don't always appreciated them eliminating a dish from their menu, I do appreciate the new interesting dishes they add."
    Dined on 5/26/2014
  • "My wife and I usually enjoy NYAJ, but on Monday, not so much. We had asked for a booth, which there were several available, and got placed in a half-booth near the noisy bar. Very little privacy. A lot of waiting for our food and beverages because there was a backup in the kitchen and bar; so much so, the asst. manager came to our table and apologized for the long wait. Our waitress was hurried and preoccupied; didn't take the time to tell us all the specials, and never gave us a survey at the end of the meal. We did receive, however, a free dessert to take home because of the poor service. We won't be back for a while."
    Dined on 5/26/2014
  • "Couldn't be happier with my birthday celebration dinner! I love the birthday coupons. Definitely make a reservation, especially with 2 small children, so you won't have an extended wait. Server was so attentive, service was really quick. "
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "When I want an old favorite dish or want to try something new, I'm never disappointed with the menu at Not Your Average Joe's in Dartmouth, MA. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, and the service is always top notch. I always notice how friendly and accommodating the wait staff is. It's great place to go with a date or a crowd."
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "The food isn't great but is okay, the atmosphere is lively and the wait staff is kind although not very accommodating. There aren't many places near by to go - but don't expect this to be a place you want to write home about. "
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "As usual, Not Your Average Joe's, or "Joe's" as it is affectionately called, delivers a great meal at a great price. The ambiance is energetic, the employees so personable and willing to please, and the food is not only tasty, but interesting! Their tried and true menu is delicious, but they also have an additional monthly specials menu from which I ordered last night. Yumm!"

  • "Started off with Nacho Average Nachos, they were awesome. The sweet corn and tangy chicken were great. Had the Capellini with shimp from the special menu, also fantastic. My wife had Balsamic glazed salmon that was delicious. Bread and dipping sauce always hit the spot, and had a few fresh Tap beers that were not mainstream brews, but complement the meals perfectly. Great job Joes! You know how to keep us coming back."

  • "We visit NYAJ's on a fairly regular basis. Never disappointed. Fresh ingredients, well balanced spices. Imaginative menu that changes often. And their desserts are amazing. Had the Rosemary skewered scallops this time and husband had the steak tips. We split their generous strawberry shortcake. Our appetizer coconut shrimp is one of the best we have ever had."
    Dined on 5/14/2014
  • "We love the restuarant for lunch and dinner. The menu is varied with lots of good choices. We are not drinkers so I really can not comment on the alcholic drinks but they specialty drinks do look good. The bread and oil is a fabulous start to the meal. Everyone is so very friendly and personable, they make you feel very special. The free entre and dessert for your birthday is the frosting on the cake. "
    Dined on 5/13/2014
  • "NYAJ has hit on a winning formula in its choice of menu, chefs, servers and food delivery. The best bread ever, w/ an olive oil dipping sauce is delivered to the table almost immediately to take the edge off of hunger....timely, efficient service (they actually KNOW what the soup of the day is..hurray!) coupled with a menu that satisfies both the not-so-hungy and ravenous crowd, in addition to delicious, well cooked and consistent food...priced reasonably.....can't beat it."
