Thank you, Joe's, for my free entree and dessert for my birthday. This is such a nice program. It is a nice reward for our patronage.

We had a great time at NYAJ's yesterday. We sat at the bar, which was full when we arrived. The Manager offered to get us a drink while we waited. two seats soon opened up and our night started! Our food was fabulous as was the bottle of Jordon Cabernet that we ordered. Its so nice to go to a restaurant that doesn't overcharge for wine. I would highly recommend Not Your Average Joes for a nice night out at a reasonable price.

Meatloaf was superb as were the onion rings. We (three diners) loved the view by the window.
Thank you very much for a delicious lunch...

Great casual dining
We loved sitting outside in the back facing the waterfront park, although the tables right out front overlooking Market Square looked nice, too. The server was brand new, but she was efficient and friendly. A trainer checked in to make sure she was doing okay. Food was solid, there were some nice beer choices, at the view was lovely.

Love the Birthday gift certificate
I usually wouldn't eat the the NYAJ's in Newburyport because it is very crowded and there is not enough parking, but the birthday certificate brought me in.

I loved the fact that we could make an on-line reservation (strange that customers can't reserve by phone). Our meals were great with the exception of the beef tips-too well done and very salty (and this person loves salt). Always a great selection of meals and I appreciate the focus on using seasonal/local produce.

Joe's has an excellent birthday promotion for members of their email club. And the food is always fresh and good.
6/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food @Joe's is generally very good. Some menu items change seasonally, and it's a fair value for the money.

Good Food at a Reasonable Price
NYA Joe's was very accommodating of our group of twelve. The wait staff continually checked back as more of the group arrived and was able to provide separate checks for each of us. The food was very good and reasonably priced.

Must do again!!!
It was a great night! The weather was very nice...the food was great...the traffic was fun to watch(a lot of classic cars 50's-60's)...service was great! What can I say...this is a "must do again!!"
6/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Relaxed and comfortable no waiting for table reservations were a great idea. Food and service was also very good .A great Fathers Day we sat outside and had a lovely afternoon
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
anytime at nyaj is good
my husband and I like to go there because the food and service is always good!
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
NYAJ Newburyport has both street side and riverside patio dining. Newburyport is a beautiful small town full of New England history. Great place to visit. NYAJ has a great menu, electic, with new ideas all the time.

We always enjoy NYAJ's. It is consistently good food and service. The Newburyport location is particularly nice.

I took my husband there for his 60 birthday. It was very lovely. The food was very good. He said his meal was excellent. I would return.
6/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
I love Not Your Average Joes!
Management, staff, bartenders are all excellent. Food is fresh and delish. Can't beat the outdoor dinning out back.
Thank you NYAJ. Love you.

We had three gluten free diners
We had three gluten free diners amongst our six..... the service to them was great! We also had an issue with a visa gift card and the manager did a great job in rectifying it!
6/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was tasty and the menu provided many options, even if the vegetarian choices were somewhat limited. The service was very polite and friendly and all the employees seemed eager to know whether we were enjoying ourselves. It was slightly noisy, but at about 7:30 on a Saturday, that is only to be expected. I would go again!
7/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Eat out back
The back shaded patio was a lovely place to eat. Although the day was hot there was a breeze. Service was prompt and friendly. Food is basic but done well. Prices reasonable
7/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our favorite go to place in NPort
The location and choice of front or rear outdoor seating always makes this our first choice to go when we want to head into Newburyport. The portions are huge, almost always are taking home for the next day's lunch. Its always busy but service is good and food service is efficient. Better to sit away from the hedges in the back as the bugs can get bad after dark but not as noticable closer to the center.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
I was meeting an old friend there that I haven't seen for 10 years. We chose Newburyport because we figured it would be nice to sit outside and enjory the view of the water. Unfortunately it rained, but not the restaurants fault. Food was very good, waitress was fine. We were seated right away and facing the water, but indoors.
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great outdoor dining!
We enjoyed a beautiful night on the patio. Great waitress, great food, and great company. Enjoyed every minute of it! Definitely recommended.
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
All was quite nice; food hot and well-prepared. Good selection of wine and brew. Wait staff was pleasant and patient.
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
all around great experience!
The coconut shrimp was great! Service was good. We both enjoyed our entrées and had leftovers! Sit in the back room the view is nice!
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a favorite
My wife and I love this place. They have the nicest, and the most friendly staff that anyone could meet in a restaurant. Service was a little slower than usual this time, but they seemed slammed with customers. We've never seen it so crowded before, so we understood the slight delays. We eat here over and over again. Awesome place.

Favorite Local Spot
NYAJ's in Newburyport is always a pleasant dining experience. The food is consistently tasty. The bread and oil is the best of any restaurant I've ever been to! The menu is varied to suit many palates and also offers appetizing monthly and seasonable specials. The staff is friendly and attentive. The outdoor seating offers views of a bustling downtown New England seaside tourist community on the one side and an open park along the Merrimack River on the other. Overall our recent visit was just what I hoped for.
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our waitress was great - attentive, kept the water glasses full. Timing of food delivery was spot on.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great first time visit
I was looking for something new while on vacation with my family and we picked Not Your Average Joe's. great selection of food and a very good gluten free menu. My kids enjoyed their pizza, my wife loved the GF pasta and Dad devoured his chicken parm stack. Only wish we had room for dessert. Great choice with a variety of menu choices.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
always a great experiance every time we go. Even though it is not in our neighborhood, it always feels like a comfortable neighborhood hangout. Food is always fresh and local.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have been a lover of NYAJ's for years and continue to be a frequent patron at the Newburyport location. Very consistent high quality food choices and always excellent service. Gluten free bread is much appreciated with the amazing bread dip they serve. Highly recommend and will continue to be a regular customer!
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our server Jake was knowledgeable
Our server Jake was knowledgeable and friendly. We were unable to get outside water view seats - next time we will specifically ask for that in our reservation. We were seated in what I call the "kid room", where families with young children are frequently seated, so the noise level mixed with the ceiling height is not ideal.
That being said, we really enjoyed our meal (a chicken carbonara and a rosemary skewered shrimp and pasta dish. My highest praise is reserved for the peanut butter and chocolate dessert,which was sinful and scrumptious!

Favorite Restaurant in This Area
Lots of seafood restaurants in the area claim great lobster rolls but NYAVJ is not billed as solely a seafood restaurant & I had my most favorite one at this restaurant!!!! All 4 of us had different menu items & all 4 of us LOVED our food.This is the 3rd year in a row, that we have met for lunch & expect to return next year. Unfortunately, none of us live in the area or we would eat here MUCH more frequently.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Used Open Table to reserve seat in outdoor area, as we prefer this location if possible. Initially told outside edge tables reserved for customers with dogs. Why? Not happy with this comment. We are dog lovers but we also are Joe regulars and felt a bit put off. Other customers were seated before us also which we didn't think was correct even though table was free at the time.
New waitress also complicated order.
Will return as we love the location.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I eat here often, and we've gotten our family to love NYAJ, too. It's one of our favorite restaurants. The food is always perfect, the location is great (especially if you can get a table in the back room with water views), and the staff is always fun and friendly. The manager always checks on guests to make sure that all is well, but is never intrusive. If you're a craft beer lover, they always have great beers on tap, and usually something locally brewed. We always leave happy.
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husbnad and I went to NYAJ's before a movie on Wednesday. What a fabulous deal!!!! We got two great entrees and a nice bottle of wine for $39.99 - cannot be beat!!!!
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
loved the large table in back
We had friends visiting and decided to have dinner in Newburyport. The "horseshoe" table was perfect for the six of us. After they sat us, we waited for a waitress. After five minutes or so, we checked at the desk to be sure she knew we were there. The manager was so apologetic that she hadn't been right over ( she never was told a group was way in the back waiting) that he sent over a few free apps. The food was great and we appreciated his quick attention.

The best thing about NYAJ's
The best thing about NYAJ's is its consistency....and of course, the bread and dipping oil!!!
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Really good meal
We took 3 grandkids to Not Your Average Joe's in Newburyport and had a really fine meal. The kids liked the kid food, and my wife and I had two excellent entrees. Mine was the Grilled Scallops w/Rosemary and I really liked it.

Girls Day Out
We love to get together at Not Your Average Joe's for our girls get together. Great atmosphere, friendly service and fabulous food. I've added Joe's to the list of places to bring all of my out-of-town guests.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
It's not just for dinner...
Always enjoy my meals at NYAJ's!!!! And I always go for a birthday lunch with my husband. Mother's Day is wonderful too, I love to take my mom there!
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good casual food
We love winsday special, great idea to include a decent bottle of wine with two entrees at a reasonable price. Also like the seasonal specials. Great place to bring kids or large groups.
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
As close to a regular dining spot as we have. Comfortable environment and friendly staff. Food always very good to excellent.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great service and GF menu
Our waitress was very pleasant. Drink prices a little high. They also have a great GF menu for people with GF allergies. Pasta dishes were a little small, but the food was very tasty.

Not Your Average Joes has always been a great place for us, we like the food and the atmosphere.

meeting the parents
I picked this restaurant as the place to meet my boyfriend's parents. They loved the atmosphere of the restaurant, the food, and the delicious bread they serve you before you order. Not too pricey, good value. Would definitely recommend.

Most Recent Visit
Along with friends we enjoyed a special evening of food and wine (2 entrees and a bottle). Nice table, a capable and exceptional waitress, and great dinners - had everything from soup to dessert and coffee. We were not rushed and spent at least two hours at table with conversation over food and drink..
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
The waitress went out of her way to accomodate our needs for a computer electrical plug after dinner and even moved us to another table for the connection. All the staff were helpful and even one of the chef's visited the table.

Margaritas and an appetizer
Normally, when I dine at Not Your Average Joe's, I get a full meal and it is always excellent. This time I was on a first date, and we were allowed to sit for four and a half hours ordering only an excellent margarita pitcher and a very good appetizer of coconut crusted shrimp. It was much appreciated on a Saturday night to not feel rushed out because we perhaps weren't spending enough money. I have dined there probably 15-20 times and never had anything but excellent food and service. And I have to travel an hour to get there, but along with the many other things there are to do in Newburyport, I have always made sure to have lunch or dinner while I'm there. In fact, several times I have had both lunch and dinner there in the same day.
