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.Continued
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.

- Average at BestmindeeDined on 9/19/2014A 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.Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 9/17/2014We 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- kittycatbillDined on 9/13/2014I 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.Special Features:
- Great food but ...Luv2dineDined on 9/12/2014The lighting is horrible. We had a hard time reading the menu.Special Features:
- First time dinersGball8800VIPDined on 9/12/2014This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend who loves eating here. We were not disappointed. The food and service were excellent!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great birthday dinnerSwanseaFoodieDined on 9/10/2014We 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.Special Features:
- SangriaJohnVIPDined on 9/7/2014The fall sangria is wonderful. Go on Sunday for the Sangria special.Special Features:
- Another Great ExperiencechrisDined on 9/5/2014We go to Joe's for special occasions and this one did not dissapoint. Great food and great service. While the restaurant was full it was not overpacked so that made it better in my opinion.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good foodAmber252Dined on 8/30/2014Overall, 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- AwesomeLnl1984Dined on 8/26/2014My mom and I had a great time. Our waiter, Ryan was fantastic. The food was awesome and dessert was even better. The best strawberry shortcake I have ever had.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- HatetocookDined on 8/22/2014Good food, excellent service. Highly recommend calling ahead or making an on line reservation.....very busy restaurantSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- rating reviewdpfoodieDined on 8/22/2014I am always satisfied with the meals that I get, whether pizza or full entree. This visit l came for my birthday, and getting a free meal never hurts. Very satisfied. FSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Birthday OutingGood2GoDined on 8/17/2014I 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.Special Features:
- Our family favoriteseeUatjoesDined on 8/17/2014Family 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!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Always a pleasureHotdocDined on 8/16/2014We 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!Special Features:
- ChrisChristineDined on 8/9/2014I 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.Special Features:

- enjoyed lunchmagpieDined on 8/2/2014everyone in our group of 6 enjoyed their lunch at Average Joe's. We were seated promptly and our waiter was excellent. The food met all our expectations. Good sandwiches and fries. Would definitely visit again if we were in the area.Special Features:
- My dinner at Not Your Average JoesTheatrekween1Dined on 7/27/2014I 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Good food. But overpricedSandyDined on 7/26/2014Good 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Consistently ExcellentHungryStudentDined on 7/26/2014Simple, 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!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- mlsOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 7/26/2014Love the bread and dipping oil. Food and atmosphere is great too! Very friendly wait staff.Special Features:
- DisappointedJayGDined on 7/25/2014We 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.
- Long Wait!longwaitDined on 7/22/2014We 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.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 7/22/2014Our server was fantastic. Service and food was great!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- DisappointingSueAVIPDined on 7/22/2014I 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.Special Features:
- Food is goodOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 7/21/2014I always enjoy the food at Joe's, although my food was tepid at best this visit. The quality and taste is always good though. Service was very slow, it was not too busy while I was there.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- AvielDined on 7/19/2014It took longer that expected to get the entrees. Steak not cooked as desired. Did not have time to send the steak back even though I planned approx. 1 1/2 hours for meal, needed to leave in order to make another appointment.Special Features:
- Great servicetuckerDined on 7/19/2014I went for my birthday, using the e-mail that was sent for a free entrée. It was great and the service was great. There were no restrictions when using the birthday meal. Super deal!!Special Features:
- Great local restaurantLocaldiner2Dined on 7/16/2014We love the fact that there are always a list of seasonal specials. The regular menu has so many great entrees to begin with. Love the bread and seasoned oil!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Great food, drinks, atmosphere!ThomJoshDined on 7/14/2014The food is always great at NYAJ in Seekonk. Our server, Jared, was awesome. He helped us with food choices as well as dessert choices. He also went out of his way to get us some raffle entries to a drawing they were having. I have eaten at this NYAJ several times and have never had a bad meal!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good but pricey food was okOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 7/8/2014Really enjoyed the gluten free bread. Thank you it was a treatI would recommend this to a friend.
- Happy birthdayJandLFishDined on 7/7/2014The 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
