A word from Not Your Average Joe's Seekonk
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. At Not Your Average Joe's, we build like we cook: creatively, from scratch, with guests in mind. One look at the renderings of our new Seekonk restaurant, and you'll see what we mean.

    My husband and I have gone to NYAJ for many years. We have been to several of their locations including this one in Seekonk. The food is always good. Good size portions. It is a very busy restaurant, so the noise level is quite high. We typically request a booth, and have always been able to be seated at one. We were seated a few minutes before our reservation and service was very good.

    NYAJ breaks the mold on chain restaurants. The food is great and the menu is always changing. I look forward to good service and a good time whether I'm with the family or out with the girls. Thanks to Open Table for saving me a seat because there's always a line - a sure sign that it's worth the wait, but not with Open Table!

    We ate at Not you average Joe's in Seekonk last Friday night and we had, by far, the best service ever. We have always had great service when we go there, but Julianna was fabulous. She was charming, friendly, informative and just an incredible server. She was attentive, but not over bearing and was so with all of her tables. Whenever our daughter comes home from college she asks to go there, and we are never disappointed.

    We have been going to Not Your Average Joe's for quite awhile now. We have always been very pleased with both the food and the service. After you sign up with their email program, they send you a birthday coupon every year that gives you a free dinner AND dessert, which can be worth $25 or more! I find that amazing! They even honored mine after it had expired by a few days!

    we went for bday dinner. the orders were completely messed up. i asked the difference between flounder and haddock..decided to go with the haddock but got flounder. asked for vegetable instead of mashed potatoes but got the potatoes. My husband asked for a medium burger and fries and received a well done burger and cold fries. While the food items were getting corrected my husband kept his burger and ate it without anything else. our hot fires, and veggies came out after we were done with our main food item and no one came to check on us for more drinks and we had an empty glass for a long time. Although management comp'd my husbands meal, it was so disappointing that we chose this restaurant to celebrate and EVERYTHING was wrong.

    A ho hum experience - not bad - not great - dinner for two with one glass of wine, one beer, shared app and shared dessert was almost a hundred dollars with tip - it was just so average - but a bit disappointing for the price. The lamb sliders special app - very good flavor but a bit overcooked - they were the highlight of the dinner.

    We go to Not Your Average Joe's fairly regularly and they never disappoint. Food is delicious, dependable quality, reasonable prices, and there's usually some little "twist" that surprises us or makes the item uniquely "Joe's." For instance, at our last visit there was some kind of fall beer on the menu (maybe pumpkin shandy?) and usually most places will put a cinnamon/sugar rim on the glass. At NYAJoe's, the rim wasn't just sugar -- it was more of a "spice variety" that added a complexity to the beverage you don't normally get.

    I had the cannelloni and basil chicken (excellent) - however, although also excellent, my husband ordered Sirloin Tips and was presented w/Steak Frites. Don't know how she misunderstood as they sound nothing alike. When he brought it to her attention she did offer to exchange the dish and he told her he would keep the presented dish. My only comment and surprise is that she did not change the check. still charging us for the steak not the sirloin tips.

    We hadn't been to NYAJ for a while but since my wife received a complimentary entree and dessert for her birthday we thought we'd come back. The server was very attentive and easy to speak with. The drinks (two glasses of wine) took a while to get to our table but it wasn't a big deal. The table bread and oil/cheese dip were yummy, as usual. The appetizer was nicely presented and delicious, as well. Our entree salads were a good size and certainly suitable for dinner. The peanut butter dessert was a great finish. I would heartily recommend NYAJ in Seekonk to anyone looking for a relaxed restaurant with great food. We'll be going back soon.

    Overall, our group of six and a high chair had a great time. This is a hopping place on weekend nights, very busy. It was quite loud, which is the only negative. The food was fantastic. The menu had quite a few items, which were not the "norm" and were all delicious! Our group attends an event in the area yearly, so this is definitely our spot for future dinners.

    I was pleasantly surprised to receive an e-mail from the restaurant containing an offer for a free entrée and dessert for my birthday. It was great that I could choose ANYTHING on the menu. I had been to this establishment when it first opened but it now seemed more casual, which I liked. My daughter and I found the food to be very good and reasonably(average) priced. Our server was very good also. I would eat here again (although I can't afford to eat out very often!) and would recommend this restaurant to friends and family.

    Family members have been coming to Joe's in Seekonk since it opened. The menu is varied with new dishes to try, but there are always burgers, salads and pizza for those who are not adventuresome. The waitstaff has always been excellent. My entire family looks forward to the bread and dipping oil/cheese. I also like the inclusion of in-season vegetables in many of the entrees. They add to the freshness and nutritional value of the entree. I hope Joe has a long and successful business at the Seekonk location!

    I am a huge Joe's fan, but I was extremely disappointed this time around. We waited a very long time for our food and when we finally got the food it was barely luke warm. I orderd sweet potatoe fries and not only were they cold, they looked like they were from the bottom of the barrel or even perhaps for the day before. Both my son and husband had French fries and they too were cold. Our waiter was apparently tied up doing something else, so someone else delivered the food for us. I would have told someone about the temperature of the food, but by the time anyone checked on us we had eaten the main portion of our meal. We even had to ask the manager on duty for refills on our drinks as well. Bottom line, we were very disappointed.
