A word from Not Your Average Joe's Hyannis
Description: 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
  • "We were pleased with the food and the service. We had theater tickets and were on a tight schedule. The restaurant dealt with this very well. Tried the watermelon tomato gazpacho. It was delicious. The key lime pie was excellent. Would come back again."

  • "While vacationing in Brewster, we decided to make the ride to NYAJ in Hyannis, since we love their restaurants back home in the Boston area. We were not disappointed. We all really enjoyed our meals, but especially, our server Tara, who had a great personality and treated us like patrons, and not Cape tourists. We will definitely be back!"

  • "Our restaurant of choice for many years. The menu changes each season. Food is always fresh and homemade. The wait staff is superb."

  • "The hostess had a warm/friendly greeting, which set the tone for the excellent service we received. It was exciting to see the restaurant packed with a variety of people - families/families with children, couples, summer visitors and locals. We knew we were at the "in-place" and thoroughly enjoyed it! I loved when the manager made his rounds to each table to say "hi" and get feedback from customers that everything was ok.....SUCH a nice touch!"

  • "I go to NYAJ a lot and love their menu. I must say that the anniversary menu was soooo good. They should bring back some of those dishes back more often."

  • "We were staying at the Days Inn Hyannis next to Cape Cod Mall and this was very convenient for us to walk over for dinner. The specials, an entree plus either an appetizer or dessert was well worth it for $20. We ordered the grilled salmon with an appetizer, and the sirloin tips with a dessert and had more than enough to share for 3 adults and 3 kids. Clam chowder was surprisingly good. Two kids meal of burger and an adult pasta entree completed our meals."

  • "We had a great dinner with a wide variety of options. One member of our party has a gluten allergy and to our surprise they have a whole different menu for GF options complete with GF beer. All four of us enjoyed our meal and the great service."

  • "We discovered Not Your Avergae Joe's maybe 15 years ago and have been regulars ever since. From the perfect martini's, to the great eclectic food, and the over the top service and energy, this restaurant has never disappointed. Steve S, the CEO is ALWAYS available for comments and concerns! We travel 30 miles each week to dine here, so this must say something for a restaurant to earn our dining out dollars! Thanks again Steve for all the hard work that you and your staff put into OUR restaurant!"

  • "Not Your Average Joe's is located in the Cape Cod Mall, Hyannis MA with outside entrance. Great food and drink with outstanding staff and floor managers. Never had a bad meal there. Nice bar area that always has a nice crowd. We always make it a point to go there on our trips to Cape Cod"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We've been going to the Cape for years and never noticed this restaurant. Found it because of Open Table and we both LOVED everything about this restaurant! Fantastic food, waiter and ambiance! We'll be back there soon! Thanks Open Table for introducing us to this gem!"

  • "Creative Menu ..Love the 3 sizes you can get in wines by the glass."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Good overall dining experience. Even if connected to the mall, it is much better than the average mall restaurant. We just had drinks and appetizers which were very good. Service was great!! Recommended if you are just looking for a place to go, catch up and enjoy a light meal!"
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "We always enjoy ourselves at the bar at this AverageJoe's, but this time wasn't as great as others. Our bartender was not very friendly and our food took quite some time. There was also no AC in the bathrooms, and they looked to not have been cleaned that day. The AC in the restaurant itself we don't think was working right, and overall we believe they were just having an off day. We will still be coming back, but hopefully everything will be in better condition."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "You can never go wrong at this place. Food, drinks and service top notch. Husband loved his haddock and my goat cheese salad was excellent. Don't forget the yummy bread and the peanut butter thing for dessert! Always an enjoyable evening for dinner. Other restaraunts should follow how Joe's handles service. The key to a good restaraunt."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Our waitress was very friendly and efficient. One of the dinners came with a very different cole slaw which we all loved and I asked waitress to ask chef if I could have the ingredients and he gave them to me. Can't wait to try to make it myself. I love the fact you can purchase a small carafe of wine (a glass and a half) which is the perfect amount for me."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "I love Not Your Average Joe's, not just because their food is great, but for the fact that they cater to those of us that have to eat gluten free for health reasons. It is always sad when I go to a restaurant that has rolls that I can't enjoy, but at NYAJ's they have a gluten free roll and separate dipping oil just for me. The waitstaff is educated on food allergies, and it always seems that the manager on always checks to see all is well. They have waitstaff that has been there for a while, so they must be doing something right. I have never had a bad experience at Not Your Average Joe's, and would recommend to all. "

  • "There were too many birthday dinners going on where the waiters were singing together but then forget about you."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "Nyaj's never disappoints. Love their seasonal sangria...never order by the glass, always get the pitcher. Great choice of food and service is superb every time. Kudos to them too for not using styrofoam for their takeout food!"
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "The service is top notch at this Hyannis of NYAJ location but the food has reached a new low. NONE of the dishes are EVER consistent, half the time they're missing ingredients or COMPLETELY different from the same dish ordered at another NYAJ. This location is an embarrassment to the NYAJ brand. After years of patronizing this NYAJ location, I'm afraid we're finished."
    Dined on 5/19/2014
  • "Once again, a fabulous meal and service at NYAJ. We frequent all Joes, and the Hyannis location is one of the best. Tried something new that did not disappoint. Waitress was incredibly efficient as was the whole staff because this place was hoppin'. You cannot go wrong at NYAJs."

  • "Had a yummy b-day dinner using my coupon for a free entree..too stuffed for dessert though. Salmon was yummy..Steak tips just average."

  • "While on vacation we visited this location and were disappointed with the food in comparison to our experience at our local NYAJ's in Arlington. Unlikely to visit this location again. Macaroni for my daughter was watery, my food was fine but not as good was we've come to expect from NYAJ's."
    Dined on 4/24/2014
  • "Mediocre at best, while I would recommend Not Your Average Joe's normally this particular store is the black sheep of the bunch.The waiter John was rude and forgot about our table. Just a bad experience."

  • "Had a great night at Joe's. I always enjoy the food and atmosphere. It's a bit loud, but I'd rather that than too quiet. Excellent dinner. Good service."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Joe's signature bread with spicy olive oil is as good as ever. The pulled pork appetizer was good, but needs to be served at once upon preparation. With each visit, guests can rely on new and interesting menu choices, including beers and cocktails. Our entrees were served hot and with a thoughtful presentation. The Tiramisu was a disappointment, with bland flavors and offering nothing memorable. That said, we continue to really like this restaurant."

  • "I love the apps at this restaurant, though I was at lunch and didn't have any, when I am there with a group at the bar it is wonderful, bright, energetic and hip. Cool cocktails and of course the entrees are awesome. Everything is freshly made and not frozen restaurant fare by any means....but the prices are really reasonable. Also, everything is not covered with cheese. There are also great vegetarian meals."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Comfortable, well run restaurant. Perfect for lunch! Great selection of food. I would not hesitate to take anyone there."
