  • "The evening was lovely and the young man taking care of us in the bar area was slow but very chatty and knew all about the food he was giving great service and although we had marginal food that night it was about the service that made it the best."

  • "This was our first visit to Not Your Average Joe's, and we were impressed with the quality of the made from scratch food coming out of the kitchen. The service was friendly, without being intrusive. Overall, it was a very good dining experience and we will be back another time (but, we don't live close to Gaithersburg, so it will be a while). Note: Save room for dessert in order to have the "Peanut Butter Thing" - you'll be glad you did!"

  • "Everything was good, but our waiter was scarce at times. He took my silverware after I completed my salad course. Then, someone else brought my food. There were no waiters available nearby to get my silverware so I had to go to the waiter stand to get it from someone else. It's nitpicky, but a waiter should be aware of this."

  • "Wouldn't go out of my way to dine there again, but if a occasion arose to do so..that would be okay. It was just okay. Not bad, but not really really good either."

  • "We met some other friends from our neighborhood for dinner at Not Your Average Joe's. We were seated promptly and had great service. I thought the menu was good because it had many choices. Great for a group, there is something for everyone. The prices were good. I would go back again."

  • "First meal out in 5 months following cancer therapy, and not sure what (if anything) I could taste. I chose exactly the right food, a burger with BarBQ sauce and onion strips - really good quality meat, cooked perfectly, and very tasty. The manager is a doll and was extremely friendly and solicitous, and I left with a handful of "first timer" discount cards. The menu is ample for anyone's taste with a great selection of appetizers and entrees, and the deserts look amazing! You will not be disappointed!"

  • "We love this place. Took some friends Saturday night and were a little disappointed. My husbands salad was drenched in dressing. He picked around it and then told the waitress he couldn't eat it. She took it, said "sorry" but didn't offer to replace it or take it off the bill. I had scallops which were very small and slightly overlooked- not at all like the last time I had them. Still one of our go to neighborhood places, just disappointing. Missed having Rich, the awesome manager, there that night to rectify things."

  • "This has become one of my favorite restaurants in the area. The food is original and I love that the specials are constantly changing allowing us to choose something different each time. The ambiance is great with the open kitchen. The clam chowder had to the most clams I have every had in this soup. I can't wait to try different dishes next time. My husband loves the choice of non alcoholic drinks and my kids love the selection of the beers."

  • "We live in the neighborhood and have come to NYAJ's quite a few times. It's not the fanciest place I've ever been, but it's comfortable , the food and service are consistently pretty good and the menu works for us. The kids menu has quite a few good options - grilled salmon, steak tips with mashed potatoes, more than your average chicken nuggets or pizza/pasta. Service was a bit slow this time but our server was very apologetic and they did a great job with our daughter's peanut allergy. (Manager personally delivered her dinner to assure us it was ok for her to eat.) Taking reservations is also very convenient, especially with kids! Considering the competition in the area, I think they do a good job. We'll be back."

  • "Pros: plenty of outdoor seating; friendly, efficient table service; reasonable prices; and a well-made extra dry vodka martini. Otherwise, NYAJG's at the taste and feel of a somewhat better than average chain restaurant."

  • "Not your Average Joe's is a great find for a differnt type of foodster. Not pricey for the food with a decent menu. The nachos are wonderful and the salmon is tender and juicy. The service was peak and friendly. Strawberry shortcake was mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm good. I would suggest to always do call ahead sitting due to how crowded Joes gets on weekends and holidays. good eating."

  • "Once I had written NYAJ off my list b/c they always got things wrong. Maybe it was the lack of other diners, or maybe they've taken note, but either way, this was a great and delicious meal, a wonderful deal $$-wise, and our server was terrific. Mia. Give her a shout out!"

  • "I chose this restaurant to entertain family members visiting from out of town. They are not really picky eaters but don't typically venture much beyond basic American fare. Everyone found something he or she liked on the menu, and we finished the meal by sharing the dessert special of the day. The service was friendly and we didn't feel rushed to finish our meal. The restaurant was busy, but we were still able to carry on normal conversations without difficulty. All in all, a very enjoyable experience."

    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "I chose this place, even though it is about an hour's drive from our house as my birthday dinner spot. We were late, but the place was not too crowded. The food was excellent as usual, and the first timers among us were very impressed. The only problem was that even with the lack of a crowd, the service was sub-par. We waited for drinks, sweetener, bread, dip, etc. way too long. I didn't pay for the meal, but I'm hoping that my two sons took this into account when figuring the tip. I have to say that this is the first time I've ever had this experience at any NYAJ's, and it is the exception. Generally, we all had a great time and great food."

  • "This took over the old chicken out in the kentlands shopping center. Big place with nice upscale decor and a hip vibe/trend to it. Menu is oddly small in the entree selection but has come good choices. Drinks are plentiful but mislabeled on the menu. It was only a .60 cent difference but its the premise of the price on the menu. Either way, great drinks and lots of different spins on classic things like sangria. Waitress rushed us through our meal and gave us our check while my wife was still eating dinner. It was a little annoying since we wanted dessert and an after dinner drink. Overall, good place to go on a friday or saturday night to grab a bite to eat."

  • "Joe's doesn't disappoint and this visit was excellent, as usual. The place was packed for Father's Day, and I was smart to have reserved my table on OpenTable. We were seated quickly and they brought an awesome basket of bread and delicious serving of olive oil. We had a variety of meals, ranging from steak, to pizza, to cannelloni. Everything was delicious. My dad got a $15 gift card as a thank you from Joe's. Highly recommended!"

  • "I went on-line to make my reservations and requested 5;30. The time available that came back was 4:15. I would have preferred a later time, but we had a gift card and wanted to use it. While we were there some friends stopped by and said they had called that morning and gotten reservations for 5:45. I would have made reservations over the phone if I had known we could have gotten a later time. All that being said, the dinner and service were good."

  • "I made a reservation for 8 people for Father's Day. 2 people arrived late, but the hostess and waitress did not have a problem with it and the waitress gave us enough time to wait for them while at the same time she took our orders and provided great food advice. She came back often and made sure we we were OK at all times. The food came out well prepared and was very tasty. I was very impressed with how correctly all steaks were prepared. We will definitely come back! I highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "A good restaurant is good enough with the things that you usually order that you begin looking at other menu items to try new things. I tried a cod and crab cake dish which was very good. The waiter recommended that I eat it such a way as to combine the flavors, and he was right. I also ordered a wonton appetizer for the table, which no one at the table had expressed an interest in. When it came to the table, everyone thought it was for me, but I said that anyone could try it, and it was like a feeding frenzy! I also ordered a special white chocolate blueberry bread pudding, which was perfect as to taste and portion size."
