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.

    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!

    We always enjoy a meal at NYAJ. The quality and service are always predictably good. We enjoyed the key lime pie after dinner, with a tart raspberry sauce. Our "not hungry any more" group of four devoured it quickly!

    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.

    I made my reservation for three for my daughter's birthday dinner. As it turned out there was only two of us. I called to let the restaurant know the change in the amount of diners. We got there and did not have to wait more than ten minutes. Everyone was very friendly and told us there name. We had coconut shrimp for appetizer but when my dinner came it was cold. I made my waitress, Kristin, aware of this and she took the dinner back and she also took it off my bill. How nice was that? They also gave us five dollar off coupon for when we return again. We definitely will return to eat dinner again. This was my first time there and I would like to come back for my birthday dinner. My birthday is November and we will be back again.

    Good fresh food with variety. However the service is a little sloppy...waiter spilled some soup and a drink on the table. Drinks are way overpriced. We were charged $8 for the smallest margaritas we have ever seen.

    Simple, yet excellent, food - we never leave dissatisfied. If the restaurant is busy and a bit noisy, it's because the locals all love to come here. Our favorites are the Santa Fe chicken pizza and the almond-crusted goat cheese salad, though it's hard to go wrong with the NYA Joe's menu. The desserts (especially the "peanut butter thing" or strawberry shortcake) are the best in Seekonk!

    We usually love going to NYAJs, but this visit wasn't that great. Service was good, drinks (pitcher of watermelon sangria) and bread started out right. Meals were just alright. I had the goat cheese salad which was good (overdressed though), but the lettuce wraps were disappointing, something was just off about them. The kids pizza was ok except the bacon kept falling off. I think they forgot it and added it after it cooked. Overall, food was ok.

    We waited almost an hour, even though we had a reservation. Once seated, the manager was apologetic, the waitress was fantastic and the food was very good. This was our first less than very good experience at NYAJ, so it won't deter us from returning, but they shouldn't have been accepting OpenTable reservations for the timeframe they had a private function going on and/or they should have had the hostess letting people know the outside dining was closed and offer to seat us elsewhere, rather than having us wait.

    I had soup and salad which was fine, but my husband had the veggie burger which should be called the rice burger. It was tasteless and dry. The fries were wilted and soggy. The plate had apparently been sitting under the heat lamp for awhile as the plate was super hot. He didn't bring it to the attention of our waiter as we were with a friend (who was paying), so we just took most of it in a to go container. This is not the first mediocre meal we have had at NYAJ's. We were very disappointed and hope this is not becoming a trend.

    The free birthday entrée & dessert drew us in. Everything was fine, except when sitting outside it seemed that service takes a nosedive. While the server was friendly and helpful, 2nd drinks came after we were done eating, salad dressing never came, dessert took about 10 min after ordered. It was little things combined that took the really excellent to okay.

    We made a last minute decision to go to NYAJs in Seekonk on July 3rd, before heading to the Bristol fireworks. I was able to make 7:15pm reservation and it was definitely busy upon our arrival...we had to wait 5-10 minutes to be seated, but we expected that due to the holiday. While the arrival of our food was a bit slower than a typical night out at NYAJs (again, not surprising due to the holiday), everything was delicious as usual :) When our entrees arrived, we ordered dessert to go (2 Peanut Butter Things) and asked our waitress for the check so we would be ready to go when we were done eating. She was very helpful with this and we made it to the fireworks and enjoyed our desserts there...YUM!!

    Our visit was in celebration of my birthday. We were told by friends to register online and I'd be sent an email and coupon for free dinner and dessert. After giving the waitress my email coupon, we half expected to be given a 'limited' menu or buy one, get on for equal or lesser value, but that's not the case. We also though our waitress might be less attentive to us. Quite the contrary, she was very friendly, attentive and made sure our visit was fun and complete and we were offered the full menu. It was a wonderful evening, the food was awesome and can't wait to go back! Thank you.

    Food is always better than average if not excellent. The cocktails are very good and the non-alcoholic drinks are superior to the soft drink option. I don't particularly like being seated in the bar area although it isn't bad, I just prefer being seated in the restaurant area especially when I am with my children although they don't care either way.
