Great food at moderate prices. Pleasant atmosphere and friendly service.

Never fails to deliver!
NYAJ is always the restaurant of our choice before all the shows at Company Theatre! The complimentary bread and dip is a always a hit! 2 diners ordered Steak Tips with the garlic mashed potatoes and both were very pleased, the portions were so large that doggie bags were in order. Another diner ordered the Herb Encrusted Haddock, as she always does, because once again it was a hit with her! I ordered the Chicken Piccata with Fettucine and it was delicious, portions here were abundant also. None of the diners saved room for dessert, maybe next time!

FREE B-Day Dinner!
NYAJ is already a good place to eat, So when they send you an email offering to feed you for your birthday, who could ask for more? Also, they give you till the end of your B-day month to get in there for it. NICE!

Never had a bad meal here. I have been here many times and it is always great, I stick to the bar area where there are tables as well.

Birthday Dinner at Joe's
On a recent visit to Not Your Average Joe's in Norwell on a busy Friday night, the service was great, the food
was hot, the waitstaff was attentive and very pleasant and the dessert was amazing! I was able to use
a birthday coupon good for one entree and one dessert during your birthday month. This turned out to be a
$25 value, a very generous gift! We were heading to the theater after our meal a recent warm evening and the waitress gladly
complied with our request to put a bag of ice under the leftovers so they would keep while we went to see
the show. Oh did I mention the bread and dipping sauce? Amazing! Sign up at the restaurant to join the
email list and receive menu updates as well as your birthday coupon for a meal on Joe!

Always a great meal at Joe's
My husband and I go to Not Your Avg Joe's in Norwell about once a month. We love the Ahi Tuna Wontons! We order them every time we go. Joe's always has a great selection of dinner, appetizer and drink specials along with the regular items on the menu. Two of our favorite items on the menu are the Smokehouse Jambalaya and the Rosemary Skewered Scallops. We've also tried several of the specials and have never been disappointed. The drink specials are always delicious too!

Mother's Day lunch
Great place to eat--the bread and oil etc is to die for. Food is generally good and well presented.
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had no wait with reservations and a nice window table. With and elderly disabled Mom in the group we enjoyed seeing her take in the activity around us. The food was tasty, a bit unusual, and timely served. The service was quite good for a busy day. An overall relaxed and fun experience with loved ones.

Mother's Day experience
We went to NYAJ Norwell for Mother's Day with my Mom and my two kids (one teen, one school age). They were able to accommodate our request for a booth which makes Mom more comfortable. Nick our server was attentive and able to get our special orders for picky eaters right. My steak tips were cooked perfectly as they always are at Joe's. My daughter was able to create her own meal creation building from bits and pieces of existing menu items. The Strawberry Shortcake for dessert was great - that the proceeds went to a breast cancer charity was a nice touch. Overall, a great experience which we are sure to repeat!

A Quiet Restaurant is not a Unicorn
We asked for a quiet corner and got one, at 7 p.m. on Memorial.. We had our favorite sirloin tips, cooked just right and excellent as usual. Service was just right -- helpful but not hovering. All in all a very pleasant experience. This is a chain restaurant, not a gourmet palace, and it meets expectations for excellent food at a reasonable price and in a comfortable, casual atmosphere.
5/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
NYAJ's always reliable
Good food, good value, always reliable - first time in Norwell store - food and service met our normal high expectations.

Not Your Average Joe's is, well, not your average joe's. It's amazing. Such an eclectic menu and all of it good. We had the chicken potstickers, voodoo chicken pizza, an IPA, the fancy margarita, and a drink named Bob. The only thing I would not get again was Bob. He was fine but not above average and I think many of the other drinks would be better. Love the patio. Love the view. The manager came and spoke to us personally. They take feedback to heart. Carolina, the server, was so friendly and personable. We will request her again.
6/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Consistent, convenient, comfortable
We can count on NYAJs to be open when we want to stop by whether for a drink or a meal. They handle groups well, and the layout allows a variety of seating options to coexist diverse clientele well. I'm not good with kids, but they have never driven me nuts at NYAJs, though they are there with their families enjoying their time too. The service has been consistent, and where I am a regular I am noticed and welcomed personally. It brings me back frequently.

Party of 6 went and all loved it. Great specialty drinks too!
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
We arrived at the restaurant at quarter til eight, a little early for our reservation. We checked in with the hostess and we promptly seated at a nice cozy booth. The waitress was a friendly older lady. We ordered a pitcher of margaritas which was a great value forthe price. Our food came out nice and hot and was delicious. Then to top off the evening we shared a chocolate fude cake whichwas excellent as well.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another Wonderful Meal!
We ate at NYAJ prior to a play at the Company Theater. The food was great, the server was very friendly and although it was a busy Saturday night, we never felt rushed to eat and run. We received a discount off our bill since we were attending the theatre; we didn't even realize we were eligible.
7/26/2013 5:00:00 PM
Consistently great food
One of our favorite restaurants for just the two of us or a gang. Quality food and service. They are great at accommodating people on various types of diets and "fussy" eaters. Granddaughter is a vegetarian and she can always find something she likes on the menu, which is often a rarity in restaurants. Staff is very knowledgeable about food and wine. The bread and dipping sauce is a treat itself! It is our birthday celebration restaurant of choice.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food choices always offer fun things to try and the sangria, wine and beer we wanted was available!
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was wonderful, the atmosphere friendly, the service very good. We were not rushed although the restaurant was busy. Altogether a delightful evening.

We started off with the bread
We started off with the bread and oil for dipping which was excellent. Our meals were served hot within a good amount of time. The food was very good. However, our waitress seemed to have too many tables. My son ordered a side of french fries with his pizza and we never got it. My husband ordered a second beer and he never got it and we were charged for it.

Close to Excellent Foodie Experienc
Everything was top notch for our recent dining experience at NYAJ starting with an efficient and courteous waiter followed by a delicious meal. The Mac & cheese is a cut above most we've tried around here and the cheese cake was light and creamy, a fine end to the dinner experience. Keep up the good work, we'll be back to try more of your appetizing menu.

Great food, cloying service
The food was great as always -- I love the way they do the bread with olive oil, cheese, and red pepper flakes. I had my usual stone hearth pizza which was delicious; very fresh crust, sauce on the sweet side but not too sweet, and nice cheese. My husband had a southwest burger and loved it. The only bad thing was our waiter Derek. He somehow seemed to think he had kept us waiting (he didn't) and he kept apologizing. He was overly attentive, asking us every other minute if we needed anything. He was very sweet and I know he was trying to be nice, but his constant presence was intrusive.

I have been here a few times
I have been here a few times and I always love the food. The menu is interesting and big enough to try new things without being overwhelming. The service is fast and the signature bread and oil keeps me coming back.

NYAJ Saturday pre-theatre dinner
The waitress came right over then slow after that. We sat right near the kitchen area: VERY noisy! Service very slow but special dietary needs met so happy with that. It was nice that we got a theatre discount so the night was good overall!

We love Not Your Average Joe's! The food is always consistently good and this time we took advantage of the Winesday special for two entres and a bottle of wine for $40. All food was very good and our server we great. We also belong to the email birthday club and one of our party got his entire dinner for free!

Comfort and a Little Pizazz
The food and atmosphere at this location (and many NYAJoes) is convenient to many towns and therefore makes it good for a mix of people. We look at this location as one of our go-to restaurants for consistently good food and a nice selection of wine and beer. We usually sit in the bar and order appetizers and entrees - or a mix of both for our dinner.
On this visit the bar area was 80% full, but they only had one bartender on. Food was good as expected. Pricing was great because I ordered off the half-price (before 7PM in the bar only) appetizer menu. We got out of there after having a few drinks, one entree and three appetizers for about $60+ including tip. Had we not had drinks, we would have probably been fed very well for $40+.
10/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food reasonably priced
Never disappointed with the freshly prepared and very tasty food and prompt, courteous service.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have been to NYAJ's many times and have always been quite satisfied. The service is prompt and friendly. The kitchen staff willingly accommodates special requests for changes in menu items to the best of their ability. My first experience with "Winesday"
was not disappointing. My friend & I had 2 fabulous generous entrees & a bottle of fine wine for $39.99. You can't beat that! I will go as often as I can and bring the family.
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Much more than average
Having recently moved to this area we have tried many restaurants. I dined several times at Not Your average Joe's in Norwell. We have always been pleased with the meals, the service (The wait staff are very friendly and make us feel welcome and special) and the ambiance. We thoroughly recommend this restaurant. The Jambalaya is outstanding.
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
As always, The Best place to eat
We have been coming here since they opened, we love the seasonal menus and the service is always excellent.
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
I signed up for the birthday list so I received a coupon for a free entree and dessert. Five friends and I went to dinner and thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The food was delicious and the service was great. We each ordered a different entree and everyone was pleased. I ordered the enchiladas and I was pleasantly surprised with how delicious they were (I find enchiladas to be a difficult item to order outside of Mexican restaurants). The peanut butter thing was a prefect birthday dessert. We were all so full we couldn't finish!
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
not as good as usual
We eat at Joe's often and it is usually very good. However, this time the turkey club was a disappointment. It was dry and chewy. I had to ask for mayo to give it some moisture and even then it was still rather bland. Usually the offerings are very good and tasty, but this was not up to what we have come to expect at NYAJ.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
We went there to celebrate wife's birthday. In the past, having registered with NYAJ, I received a free entrée for my birthday. I just assumed that my wife would receive one since I believed she was registered with me as usually is the case when we join something like this. Anyhow, I inquired about this when we, six, arrived. I was told they would look into it since this sometimes happens, computerwise, and vouchers are not sent out. It wasn't until the check arrived that we told that she was not part of my registration. All in all, there were no complaints about the food or service. I think they could have handled it a little better since the person I talked to originally never came back all the time we were there.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
We ordered the spicey tomato pizza and the mustard chicken. Everyhting was tasty. The pizza crust could have been cooked a little longer- pale an color.

A Pleasurable Dining Experience
It is always a pleasure to dine at this restaurant. Good food, good value, good atmosphere and wonderful friendly waiters and waitresses
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
This place has never let us
This place has never let us down. My jambalaya was excellent. Large portion and lots of meats. It is a bit spicy so if you don't like hot may want to see if they can cool it a bit. Wife had mustard crusted chicken which is always good.
Service was excellent. Same gentlemen we had on our last visit. He has great timing and very friendly without being obtrusive. I got the feeling he has worked in some upscale restaurants in the past. Open table works great here and I got the booth I requested without having to ask when I got there.
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Beet salad was HEAVEN!
We have eaten here many times and have always been very happy with the food. This time they had a new roasted beet salad with oranges and blue cheese which was fabulous! It was like eating dessert!
11/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
Our dinner was lovely. Drinks, food and service was excellent. The manager visits each table to check in. My husband loved his dinner and happened to say that his chicken was a bit dry and the manager offered to get him new chicken. We refused as the dish was fine but at the end the manager gave us both complimentary dessert! Amazing.
12/1/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always a good pick
Not Your Average Joe's is always a great pick. A fairly local chain with good consistency. The menu changes up every now and then. And mmmmmmm that bread!

We always make reservations and never have to wait. Always enjoy our meal. It's our adult kids favorite place.
