We had a wonderful experience
We had a wonderful experience at Not Your Average Joe's in Beverly. The wait staff was terrific, and the hostesses outstanding. Because of traffic, we knew we would be quite late,and I called to tell them so. They promised to hold our table, and they did...for forty minutes! They were lovely when we arrived and told us what to order so we could make our show. Everyone there was accommodating and more than nice. The food was typical Not Your Average Joe's, very good fries and good hamburgers, not great, but we would definitely go back because all of the staff were wonderful.

North Shore Music Theater bonus
I took my 10 year old niece here before seeing a performance of The Sound of Music at the North Shore Music Theatre. I showed my niece the tickets just after we were seated, and our server commented on that. We ordered our meals, but my niece was brought the wrong meal. She had ordered the kids burger and they brought her pasta. They were all apologies, even the manager came over, said they would correct it immediately and comp her meal (the latter which I felt was extremely generous). In addition, when we got the bill, there was a 15% discount applied: apparently Not Your Average Joe's has a deal with the North Shore Music Theater - if you go there prior to a show, they discount 15%. Bonuses all around!

another outstanding meal
We went prior to the theater and were rewarded with an oustanding experience. Although there was a large wait, we were escorted right in with our Open Table reservation! And no table next to the kitchen either! Service was prompt and attentive. Food was superb! A great experience. And the show was fine, too!

I made reservations online and we were immediately seated....our server (i believe his name was Corey) was very pleasant and professional. both the appetizer selections and entrees were great. my son had the Vietnamese salmon and it was excellent!!
i had the crab quesadilla which was also very good. also, please keep the spring rolls on the menu, both my sons enjoy them.

Not Your Average Meal
This restaurant is truly anything but average. The food was delicious, the portions were just right, and the ambiance was perfect! I went for a late dinner and enjoyed everything about this place. I would definitely recommend.
6/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
I always love Not Your Average Joe's - decent price for decent food, everybody loves what they get, good service (this time, absolutely incredible!! Go, Darren!!), gluten-free and allergy-friendly options, etc. awesome. This time was outstanding, mostly thanks to our excellent server, Darren.

Before the theater
We wanted a close restaurant that offered great food and was close to the theater. Our server and meals were wonderful- probably the best we've ever had there. We will return!

With two hungry children we were looking to get in and get out. They were pretty busy although not quite full. We were very happy with menu choices and specials and were in out in less than an hour. Perfect when with kids!
6/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
I always look forward to going to Not Your Average Joe's. Their food is great and their waiters and waitresses work very hard. Usually, I order a burger, and it is cooked to perfection. The menu has plenty of choices, so I always find something new to try.

Joe's is open until 11 for real!
We had originally made a reservation for 7:45 PM to celebrate my birthday after we picked up friends at the airport. Unfortunately, we found out that their plane from paris was delayed by a few hours, and so we rescheduled for 9:00 PM. Sadly, at 9:00, we were just dropping our friends at their house, 45 minutes from the restaurant so we called to say we would be late. They said, "No problem," and greeted us at 9:50, ready to serve a late dinner. As usual the food was very good and we were not rushed at all by them.

Fantastic customer service.
Fantastic customer service. Extremely attentive waiter. Excellent food.
7/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
A nice surprise
Everything about this meal/experience was great except for hte Ahi Tuna salad. I know, get Ahi at a seafood or sushi resturant but EVERYONE offers it now a days. it was cut very thin, overall portion was small and just OK. Other dishes were execellent and I would recommend the pizza!
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Just Great All Around!
Not Your Average Joe's is a great find. They are a chain restaurant, and have consistently good food. One of their specialties is a Balsamic Salmon, which is just wonderful, my favorite dish. But everything is good, and that includes their wine list.
The employees are always cheerful, which makes for a fine experience!
I travel to NC and FL during the winter, and wish they were in those areas too.

fun family reunion
My immediate family was meeting up with family we hadn't seen in many years who were visiting the area. We picked this restaurant due to its central location, varied menu, decent prices and because I have eaten and enjoyed the Burlington one many times.
This ended up being perfect for a group of 10 which included ages from 8 to 70. Everyone found things they liked, portions were good sized but not crazy, our waiter was extremely helpful and nice and we weren't rushed - we were there for over 3 hours but only because we wanted to be. People liked the food so much that the family from Virginia were thrilled to find out that NYAJ has branches near them as well!

Friendly, efficient service with a smile. The food was very good. All in all a very pleasant dining experience.

One of our favorite spots
My partner and I really enjoy Not Your Average Joes. We have never had a bad meal. We enjoy going by ourself, and also when we have out of town guest.
You cannot go wrong here

Worth the visit
Very good experience...first time visitor. Server greeted immediately and was very helpful with descriptions and recommendations. I tried the Vietnamese Salmon which was very flavorful but not too spicy. Tender, flakey salmon broiled then nestled over rice noodles in a curry broth. My companion had the steak tips, mashed potatoes and green beans. Tips cooked as requested, tender, marinated with red bliss mashed and crisp, vibrant green beans. The check is accompanied by a request in either paper, hard copy form or they have a digital, computerized on-line reviewer which I think might confuse older diners who are not so tech-savy. Also, we rec'd a packet for "first-time diners" with coupons for future visits.

NYAJ Is Always Our "Go-To" Place
We were there this past weekend to celebrate my birthday. I especially loved having my email which gave me a free entree and dessert (very generous ... THANK YOU!) We always end up going to Not Your Average Joe's for family celebrations ... coupon or not. The bread and oil is to-die-for good ... as is everything on their menu. Always good! :D
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
I was pleasantly surprised at how much this place has improved in food and service. They are very accommodating to specific needs and requests. The service was very good.
I will be back soon.

Just Great All Around!
NYAJ's is a great chain restaurant - food is always consistently good, service as well.
8/21/2013 5:00:00 PM
I love NYAJ
I've never had anything there that I didn't like. The food isn't overly fussy and tastes great. Their scallops are wonderful and I wait for the chipotle sweet potatoes to go back on the menu every year. And the best part is they really "get" food allergies. I only have a couple so it's not a big deal, but a friend has a son with multiple allergies and has really never been able to take him out to eat in a "real" restaurant. Burger King chicken nuggets don't count. He had a real meal there right off the menu with a couple of minor adjustments.
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
I received an email about the Lobster Roll at NYAJ .. We were there that Friday.. Glad we did it was well worth it!!
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Gluten Free menu
The Gluten Free menu has a good selection. G.F. Rolls come with oil for dipping. They were careful & gave me a separate dipping dish to avoid gluten issues.They are always very attentive and accommodating. The area in the back is good for groups and we never feel rushed. We had 5 in our party ( one in a wheelchair ) everyone enjoyed the experience.

Good restaurant for the family
Large party of adults/teens
Liked the food, step up from usual pub or chain styles restaurants.
Waitress was very efficient.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Have eaten at NYAJ many times & we're usually very satisfied. This time I know a few people didn't love their meal as much as usual. One person had the vegetarian sandwich with mozz, tomatoes, basil aoili on ciabatta bread.There was hardly any mozz (which was supposed to be extra on the veg version) & aoli--had to request it after eating. Two others had the balsamic salmon but found it too peppery. We usually love our food & look forward to coming, however, some of the food was under par this last time. Service/ atmosphere was great. We LOVE that anyone can order from the children's menu and think this is a brilliant idea- thank you. We also LOVE the bread and dip that is offered as part of the meal (more than generous)! Good prices.

Great restaurant for all occasions!
NYOJ's has a fun, vibrant atmosphere with an excellent selection of foods to please everyone. I enjoyed the scallops with Israeli couscous while others in my party were equally pleased with the clam chowder, stuffed quahogs, and chicken piccata. We also split 2 molten chocolate cakes between the 5 of us for dessert. OH so yummy!

We love NYAJ
We go to NYAJ frequently and have never been disappointed. I have a couple of food allergies and they always accomodate me. The staff is great and the food even better.
9/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful, as always. The
Wonderful, as always. The bread and oil is to die for, but every dish is unique and delicious. The service is excellent, and the promotionals so creative and fun. We love Winesday Wednesdays.

Great Food - Great Value
NYAJ's in Beverly never disappoints - service is great and food is even better.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
You can count on Joe's
We have been to NYAJ's many times. Every time we have had a great meal. The service is really good, and the food is always interesting and tasty. The bread is so good that I can't go there when I am dieting. I can't resist it. The only negative this time was that they ran out of an entree that we ordered early in the evening. And they were out of mashed potatoes! But I love the place.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our server Jacob was outstanding! I have already recommended this place and him to my many friends on Facebook! He was attentive, polite, and very personable! You are very lucky to have him!
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
service slow due to theatre
service slow due to theatre night. We were nervous about getting out on time. Wait staff seemed stressed.
9/30/2013 5:00:00 PM
Always reliable and pleasing, with excellent value. We went on "Winesday," when two entrees and a bottle of wine are served for $39.99. We stuck t the offering and enjoyed the chicken enchiladas and a bottle of Malbec. Total value!
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Not Your Average Joe's is consistently good ~~ food & service. Management is always visible, assessing the operation and needs of patrons.

Winesday is a hit!
We introduced two of our friends to Winesday and now it's a regular thing?

Love Winesdays! Wonderful
Love Winesdays! Wonderful menu. Each dish unique and wonderful. Consistently fine service and great food!
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Thank goodness we had a reservation because this place was slammed! Lots of families. This isn't normally the crowd we see at NYAJ. We wanted a booth but only got a half-booth. The table was wobbly. all else was up to snuff --- food, service, beer was all excellent.
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Service - Great Food
Wonderful meal...may be the only place we go for pizza ever again, truly outstanding! Other food/menu items are also great. Our waitress overheard us talkign about going to North Shore Music Theater that night and she told us about their 15% discount for dining at NYAJ on "show" nights. Very nice of her to do and confirmed what we already knew - WE WILL BE BACK.
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
NYAJ is consistently good. Frequent variations on the menu. Something for everyone. Friendly and prompt service. It has become my go-to place when meeting friends.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
We love the new fall menu.
We love the new fall menu. Yummmm! You guys are so creative. The steak tostadas look amazing. At Winesday I tried the balsamic salmon and LOVED it! The roasted asparagus was amazing, and the salmon was perfectly cooked. Well done! I would love to see the ravioli started dish again. That was wonderful. Thank you for your creativity and for being consistently GREAT. The bread and oil remains a highlight after scores of visits! We are fans forever.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
A chain restaurant with always great food and service.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
We were thrilled to find a NYAJ's in Beverly. We were going to a show and wanted to get a guaranteed good meal with friends. I have a modified diet of no gluten. They have a separate gluten free menu! All the food was delicious and the drinks were perfect. We made online reservations and were so happy to walk in and go right to our table. I highly recommend this to all patrons.

Dinner with co-workers
Dinner at 6:00 after work with co-workers on a Tuesday. There was a pretty good mix of families with young kids and adults. It wasn't the time for a quiet meal but we were able to have conversation without raising our voices. The specialty Cosmo on the menu was excellent, the menu choices are always unique and the pear and spinach salad with salmon was delicious. I've never had a bad meal here.
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
I visited to take advantage of the "Winesday" menu (two entrees and a bottle of wine for $39.99). The food was great, however our server seemed impatient toward the end of the meal.
