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.

    We try to visit NYAJs at least once a quarter. We can count on creative, delicious food and fun cocktails. We've never been let down. And we love the gift of "free entree & desert" on our birthdays. We rarely order desert - but you should know the Pumpkin Cheesecake is out of this world.

    Usually the service is excellent. Unfortunately, on this particular evening, our server was extremely overworked. At least she told us that. She said that she had many tables and we would just have to wait for her to get to us. She was flushed and wasn't able to keep up with what people were asking her for. She must have felt overloaded because when she presented the check, she didn't bring the little computer to fill out.

    We frequent our local NYAJs and have always been pleased. Occasionally there is a bump in service or food but I'm sure this is the case with any restaurant. The difference is they are very accommodating and conciliatory. We are rather humbled and do not make an issue out of cold food or miscommunications regarding specials yet we are always treated with the utmost respect. It makes all the difference with an experience and it ensures we will return often, as we do. We always look forward to the monthly menu that reflects seasonal ingredients and special nights like Beersday and Winesday. Their food, service and care to patrons needs builds loyalty and a pleasurable experience.

    We went for lunch on a Sunday so the noise level was great (quiet) compared to the usual dinner chatter. The service was great: our drinks were refilled without asking, everything was as ordered, and our waitress checked on us a few times.

    We had a complimentary meal for it was a birthday. We got the request of area where we wanted to sit. Our waitress was attentive and it was quite busy for mid week at that time of the early evening. The appetizer was very good coconut shrimp. I had had rosemary skewered scallops which were truly the highlight of the evening. My wife's meal of beef was not that appetizing. We both found NYAJ quite noisy but that seems to be a trend today.

    This visit was to celebrate a birthday. We arrived a few minutes after our reserved time and were seated right away. There appeared to be only a couple of tables available. Within a short time the wait time had reached twenty minutes for those without reservations, which is about right for this restaurant. Bread with oil, pepper flakes and freshly ground cheese was excellent as usual. The cup of chowder was very tasty and just the right consistency. Meals were delicious as they always are. Molten lava cake for desert, just right. Our server was right on top of things, filling water glasses when they reached half full, asking if everything was to our satisfaction. She did a great job. Can't say enough!

    Joe's is a place to go if you want a nice night out, you want to meet friends, you want fancy food or comfort food. You can never go wrong! The service is top notch, and everyone is more than friendly (without being obnoxious). The bread and oil... Oh.Em.Gee. Whatever they put in that stuff is the things that dreams are made of!!!! You will become a Joe fanatic if you go here!

    Enjoying a Saturday night dinner with good food and pleasant surroundings was easily accomplished at NYAJ,S DARTMOUTH. Ordering from the new specials menu the flounder offering was stellar and thoroughly enjoyed as a fresh entry to a solidly tasty existing menu. Catching a fresh summer chicken caprese,with local heirloom tomatoes arrugala and artisanal cheeses made for a complete home run of a dining experience. Consistency and innovation keep us coming back to this local favorite haunt!

    The food was fantastic and portions were plentiful, as always. Our server, Erin, was attentive, helpful, knowledgeable. She recommended a great wine that individually complimented our dinners; Mouth-watering tender sirloin tips, and Erin's favorite, the chicken enchiladas with poblano crema....Yummmmm! Since our 1st visit, NYAJ's has become one of our favorite restaurants, especially for special occasions.

We had 4 in our party, and while we all filled up on their amazing bread and oil combo (YUM), everyone took their leftovers home! Yup - it's just that great! The server, Rick, was friendly and knowledgeable. The food was fresh and delicious. I highly recommend for everyone!

    "Joe's" is the most reliable local restaurant in this area. They're VERY customer conscious, have consistently good food - very unlike any other chain. I can't even think of it as a chain because it has a feeling of intimacy no chain has. It's a personal place... I feel like I'm coming home when I'm here.
