    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I was down in Hyannis with a group of 4 other people getting ready to run the Hyannis Half Marathon the next day and we wanted to make sure we got a great meal in the night before. Making the reservation was easy, and we were able to walk right into our table, even being a few minutes ahead of schedule. The food was great and service was on point. Definitely will return here again.

    My husband & I went here for Valentines Day. We expected it to be loud but it wasn't. The waiter was excellent & check in on us frequently. I work in a kitchen, I was not surprised by the outcome of our food. My steak: chewy, My husbands food: under cooked veg & starch, overcooked salmon. With the volume of people, I'm surprised at how quickly our food came out. I'm sure if this was a regular day, this wouldn't be a problem. Despite our dinner plates I decided to order the special cake. It was PERFECT. It was moist, the mousse didn't have the slight metallic taste you would get from boxed mousse, suggesting that they made it from scratch. Unlike most places the ganache atop the cake wasn't drenching it. Overall, it was a pretty fun place.

    We had dinner reservations for Valentines Day and needed to be near Hyannis. The service was pretty good, the food dependable and the place was extremely noisy with too loud music, sports TV at the bar, and a very chatty crowd. The restaurant is as good as any chain in a shopping mall but certainly not a romantic spot or a place for a special occasion. I wish there were more Open Table choices on the Cape.
