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.

    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.

    We had six different entrees at our table and all said they were delicious! Nice variety of choices. Interesting list of unusual mixed drinks. Food reasonably priced. Tried the watermelon gazpacho last visit; liked it so much I found the recipe and made it myself! Very accommodating staff. Definitely will go back!

    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.

    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!

    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.
