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.

    "Joe's" is a consistently enjoyable destination after mall shopping (inside of Cape Cod Mall) or for lunch or dinner on any day. The ingredients are always fresh and the innovative menu changes with the season. The current Oktoberfest menu is paired with great wines and beers from Germany. The Managers and Wait Staff are always helpful and friendly. I strongly recommend reservations on Friday and Saturday nights. The

    If you would like to combine your dining experience with some shopping in Hyannis, this is the place for you. I arrived here on a busy Saturday evening, thankfully with reservations from Open Table. I found an appealing menu selection especially considering that this is a chain restaurant. I had the mustard coated chicken with the panko crust which was very good, crispy on the outside and moist on the inside. The prices are reasonable especially for the generous portions. My guest found the waiter surly. However, I did not feel the same. This restaurant or any of their other locations will be worth a visit.

    Only negative criticism would be the placing of tables by the window. All traffic goes up and down that aisle. There were no booths available or I would have asked for one. Perhaps the powers that be can come up with a plan whereby those dining at tables need not have to watch/get rubbed against by diners coming up and down the aisle to be seated or to exit. I reiterate, this is my only negative criticism.

    Decided to take advantage of the birthday coupon (for entrée & dessert) at the Hyannis restaurant... had been there previously and loved it. Saw the emails for the October specials and was looking forward to a great meal... had requested Jim as our waiter and he could not have been more wonderful - he recommended several of the new items and every one was fabulous!! I can't say enough about what a great experience it was at Joe's... NYAJ is becoming one of my favorite places to go!!

    On Cape Cod there's not many places that offer specifically vegetarian options. Not Your Average Joe's does and they are delicious! They go way beyond the typical "I don't know what you people eat" salads and veggie burgers. I had incredibly delicious fresh pasta with hazelnuts and filling made of pure heaven. It was great. I would recommend.

    The food and service were very good but we were seated directly in from the the cooking area and it was very loud with lots of servers buzzing about, but the food and our server Sara, made up for it. Special stuffed canoloni was excellent and so was the carrot cake. It was a nice birthday celebration.

    I always think of NYAJ's as a chain but I was blown away by the food I had in your Hyannis location. Quite simply - it could have been served at any one of the fine dining establishments on Cape Cod or in Boston. It was just amazing. My young grand daughter wanted steak and ate every bit on her plate. Our server was wonderful - chatty - and had patience with the young one. We left trying to figure out when we could get back!! Your restaurants always put out a good meal at a fair price but this flounder was amazing

    We are regulars and had a good meal. The sirloin tips were good but the softball sized pile of mashed potatoes was cold and dry as well as unusually dark in color. Waitress was extremely busy so I couldn't get it replaced. Pizza was good but stingy on the sausage.

    went here to celebrate my hubby's birthday - both of us had delicious steak dinners - i also ordered clam chowder which is one of my favorites - we often dine at NYAJ and have been to many locations - always have great food - i must mention that apart from the wonderful dinner we experienced, we had the best service from "Ben" - he was so friendly and attentiive and will ask for him when we go back again - we felt it necessary to tell the manager "Douglas" who also was so nice and professional - we had the best time and definitely will go back to this location - thank you again for a wonderful birthday for my hubby!!!

    After a tiring day, we found a lively and upbeat place for comfort food with some really concerned servers and manager. We were 4 in the family, and felt immediately welcome and understood. The manager himself brought out some warm gluten-free bread even though that was not requested or ordered. Anything we asked for was promptly served, even if it was not on the menu. The server, Nicole, was attentive and responsive and pleasant. The place has a large menu, and an even larger heart. Perfect place for a family style dinner place. I only wish it was located on Main Street in Hyannis and not in a strip shopping mall.

    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!

    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!

    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.
