A word from Not Your Average Joe's Warwick
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.

    This was the first time that I made a reservation on-line w/NYAJ. It was easy and worked perfectly. Every request and comment was acknowledged and met. I go to the Dartmouth restaurant usually(closer to home) but love the Warwick site and have taken my parents and granddaughters a few times. Service and food were great.

    We have dined at NYAJ Warwick multiple times are never disappointed. Executive Chef Luciano & General Manager Michele O'Brien and staff make all diners feel special , welcome and well nourished. The almond crusted goat cheese salad with raspberry vinaigrette was described by our dinner guest as tasting like "cheesecake on lettuce"! What could be better than that?

    We were slightly earlier than our 8:15 reservation, but were immediately walked to our table (with about 25 sets of waiting guests' eyes, who watched us walk right in... hee hee... thank you Open Table). Friendly, experienced staff and excellent service... no excruciating delays between drinks, app, main, or dessert. Awesome, industrial atmosphere, which is attractively decorated. Have always loved the menu... :) We were in an out in an hour, on a busy Saturday night. We are Joe's regulars (visit Seekonk location often). Overall, it's a really cool restaurant to dine at.

    The last time we has this particular server (Chris P.) the service was lousy. Not sure if this is the correct company for him brought over the incorrect beer. Then took forever to clear plate in between courses keep saying he be back in a second. Not sure may need to be retrained or freed up for other employment. In know in the future I will not be sitting in his section. Not that I'm expecting anything to come of this last time I responded to this email the "manager" respond state they wanted to send out a gift card for the bad service and have yet to get that aprox. 4 months ago

    On a Saturday night @6pm, was promptly seated, but had to wait 7-8 minutes before the waiter arrived. By then we had decided what to order, but our waiter was trying to make us change to an upgraded dinner. We did not change and we very happy with our choices. When it came time for the check what was delivered was not our check. Needless to say I, although the good was good, I won't rush back there any time soon.

    Our dinner at NYAJs was delicious and all we had looked forward to. Although it was rather noisy near the kitchen area, we were well taken care of by many staff members, maybe too many. Later the same evening we came back with friends to sit outside, where it was comfortably heated, decorated and quieter than our dinner spot. We love the varied menu, changing seasonally and are so glad the restaurant has come closer to home.

    I have been eating at Not Your Average Joe's for many years, at their MA locations. I was very happy when, few years ago, they opened up in Seekonk - not far from me. Then, this past year, they opened this restaurant just a few miles down the road from me - I go there, a few times a month, now - either alone or with someone - love the bar, love the focaccia bread and dip, and every single thing I have ever eaten there!!! Great desserts, as well!

    Not Your Average Joe's opened nearby about a year or so ago and we have been 3 times. For a chain, it is a cut above with something for everyone. The food has always been tasty and generous. And they are happy to adjust dishes per your requests and needs. I look forward to going back a couple of time a year.

    The atmosphere is fabulous....the outdoor dining was so pretty. Our waiter was very energetic and friendly and informative about dinner choices and options. Service was very slow on a Wednesday later in the evening. 45 minute wait between drinks and appetizers which came with our dinner HATED THAT!!! If you have kids very good kid choices for dinner. Prices were reasonable. Steak tips were ordered....and they were cooked as ordered, and were very good. There signature dessert..peanut butter Oreo thingy...dark chocolate chips are to big and hard as rocks ruined the dessert (for me) - the raspberry sorbet was excellent served with fresh fruit ....The question is would I go back to this restaurant? probably, but not anytime soon.....

    I have been to this particular restaurant several times now. The food is good, however, I order the same meal almost every time I come to this particular location. And unfortunately it is a little different every time. Last night was very good, however, it was not very warm. It is the tuscan grilled chicken melted fresh mozzarella with marinated tomatoes, grilled chicken, basil aioli and arugula, on ciabatta, with organic greens. Last night the chicken was barely warm. I will go back but next time, I may try something different.

    NYAJ's is currently one of my favorite restaurants! The menu is interesting and varied with something for everyone - and I am a rather picky eater. The cocktails are creative and very tasty and I just LOVE the fresh bread and flavorful oil. The wait staff at the Warwick location is consistently friendly, courteous, and attentive. During my last two visits I enjoyed the outdoor dining and, while the view of the mall is not ideal, the eating area has a very nice atmosphere! Finally, I like the option of being able to make reservations. Happy 20th Anniversary to Joe's! :)

    Was not impressed with the food. Heard so much about meatloaf dinner and was overly disappointed with it. Pizza not great. Special lemonades were warm when brought to table. Bread and dipping sauce were excellent. Service was good. Most likely will not go back again. Extremely disappointed after all the hype about how delicious food was.

    The food and price are a value. The bread with that cheese, oil and spices is good enough to eat as a meal by itself. The burger I had was excellent. It was big and full of flavor. The fries were crispy and they give you plenty. Definately recommend going.

    We were a table of 11 with 5 kids and our waitress was amazing. We were a little late because my daughter's dance recital ran a little long and when I called to let them know the hostess was very pleasant. My family lives in CT and doesn't have a Joe's near them so they enjoy coming to visit so we can go there to eat. Great food for adults and for the kids.

    The food was just okay...nothing that special. Nice that they have a gluten-free menu. Waiter was very nice and friendly but the service was a bit slow, even for just a soft drink refill. The thing that would prevent me from coming back to this restaurant or recommending it to a friend was that the music was so loud. It was difficult to carry on a conversation.

    My wife made reservations for our family for Father's Day, so we would be sure to have dinner at a nice place and not have to wait long. We made an excellent chioice! We think this Joe's is relatively new,and had heard great reviews by friends. Our reservation was all set, we had the choice of inside or outside.... and will be sure to go back some summer evening to enjoy the fire pit with TV....what a way to please the whole family! Food was great and different. Healthy choices were easy to find and delicious. And the bread....can we just stop by for the bread? We left Joe's very pleased with everything, so we will be back, and won't wait for a special occasion. Just going is a special occasion!

    We were a party of five. Our server was very good. Three of us enjoyed our meals. Two in our party ordered burgers, and both said the rolls were very dry/stale. This happened to me once, too. What's up with that? Also, I enjoyed the hand-cut french fries before, but on Saturday they were way overcooked.
