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've never had a bad meal here. The menu has its favorites, but they are constantly offering numerous specials and seasonal dishes that are eclectic and delicious. It's not your typical chain restaurant by any stretch. The wait staff is attentive and friendly. Despite the largeness of the place, the noise was completely manageable.

    While we weren't with kids (ours are grown), kids were in abundance this Friday night but thankfully no one was screaming - children OR parents. I ordered the steak which was fine, nothing spectacular, the fries were WONDERFUL (as I seldom have them), the watercress or greens on the plate had a bit of dressing on them, just enough but it was spicy - didn't expect that and didn't like it very much. My husband had a burger of some sort which he liked. Both of us consumed ALL of our fries, again very unusual! I chose the bread pudding for my birthday dessert. I ate about 80 per cent. Not impressed as the best thing about it was the caramel (and chocolate) that the pastry 'chef' swirled on the plate. It was a bit 'thick' and rather tasteless. Oh well. LOVED the bread and garlic&parm oil at the start which is the real reason we keep coming back. Next time I'd choose another entree and another dessert but there will be another visit.

    For a mid-week lunch stop the place was packed. Seriously, very full and loud with preschool kids out with a parent, retirees and people working over lunch. Food was good, nothing out of this world, and is similar to what you'll find at every NYAJ. I felt we were a little rushed, a little neglected, and it seemed like service closer to a chain than an independent free standing restaurant. I think it's good for what it is, but don't think it is markedly different than a Bertucci's or similar type offering.

    Dined at the Seekonk location for a birthday lunch - food from appetizers to desserts was excellent and imaginative! Loved the lamb over couscous. Caramel sangria was delicious! Our server was excellent and promptly met every request.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/7/2014
    We had a reservation for 2 at 7pm. Entered and gave our name, was told we would be seated shortly. Didn't get a seat until 7:35 pm and it was in the loud uncomfortable bar area seating. The waitress never refilled my drink until I tracked her down. Ordered a drink off the specials menu and never received it. It wasn't on our bill either which means she never even remembered to put it in. The food was a longer than usual wait there. The waitress cleared our food off before we were actually finished. I do not think we will be back here.

    The food was just OK this time. There is some consistency issues at this restaurant. My daughter's hamburger was burnt. My wife's lamb entree didn't have much flavor. My butternut squash ravioli were very tasty.

    I love Not Your Average Joe's! The food is so good no matter what you get. The bread and dipping oil are habit forming. The people that work there are all so nice too. The only negative thing was that two of my favorite things are no longer on the menu. The veggie lasagna roll up and the creme' brulle cheesecake. We used to stop in for dessert for that! But the pumpkin cheesecake was fantastic!

    We made a reservation through Open Table. We arrived 10 minutes prior to our time. We were told they were clearing out table. 25 minutes later we had to ask about our table. The manager saw that we had a reservation and immediately seated us, The hostess had forgotten about us. Not a good start.

    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.

    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.
