A word from Not Your Average Joe's Beverly
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.

    This was a birthday get togeather followed by the North Shore Music Theater where we saw Debbie Reynolds. My sister told us about your discount of 15% to theater goers, which was a pleasant surprise and yes,it did sweeten the pot.One person in our party was able to order from your Gluten Free menu always a bonus. My baked Haddock was delicious.Our server,Michael was great. A perfect choice for dinner to make for a perfect evening.

    Been before, but service was the worst I've experienced on this trip. Long delay for appetizers, then meal came 45 seconds later. Empty water and iced tea glasses, long delays between contact with wait staff. Came at 8:15, so perhaps they were worn out?

    My companion enjoyed the seared tuna, and I found the meatloaf very good: tasty with a good sauce. Service was attentive. We were there for a fairly late lunch, so it was quiet. The place itself was neat, comfortable, and attractive. It's easy to reach from Rte. 128.

    Dined on 6/25/2011
    ordered Chicken Farfalle with mozzarrella---As a consumer I feel the plate of food was not worth the price of 14 dollars as there were only 4 small pieces of chicken( these were thumb size) Almost felt like the chef made 2 entries at the same time and I got the short size. My wifes fish order was small and undistinguished.. My feeling is when I go to other restaurants and 15-16 doollar meal is usually too much to each in one seating. Our dinners were quite the contrary and disappointing.I will say the waitstaff was very efficient.

    As usual the food and service was exceptional. Although our waitress had only been working at the restaurant for 6 weeks, she was well trained and quite attentive. Hats off to Kerri!! My plate of scallops was over the top delicious....and everyone else's food was just as good. The key lime pie was magnificent....would love that recipe since I personally love to cook and bake.....

    I booked a reservation using the on-line open table option. Although there was a computer glich for my reservation, the hostess phoned me to let me know of the situation and made appropriate accomodations for my table of 12! The service was great. We had drinks served within 5 minutes of being seated and the appetizers came shortly thereafter. The meals were proportioned appropriately and all had a good time....great experience at Not Your Average Joes..I have been there many times and always had great service and food....I will keep coming, so keep up the great work!

    The special menu for Mother's Day was perfect for my Mom and me. The fish was the most flavorful piece of fish I ever had, and I told the waitress the same. My Mom has a special diet, and the chef accommodated her needs to perfection. I've never seen my Mom clean her plate; but she did!

    Sorry...irreverent detail, the visiting manager from your newburyport rest. Totally made my b-day. She couldn't have been welcoming and informative. A plus. So our server Jacob is a keeper...awesome. The only suggestion I would make is a bit more of a Homey fresh plants etc. feel.Also every body in my party is in recovery. and felt a little uncomfortable by the emphasis on wine a.nd alcohol. We are all raving fans. Thank you. Billy carter.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 3/11/2011
    Not Your Average Joe's in Beverly, Ma is a restaurant we visit when we are in the area. The menu offers a variety of light and more substantial entrees, which has allowed everyone in our family to find a menu item of their liking. On this visit, however, the preparation of our meals was not a good as previous visits. The bread crumb coating on the mustard crusted chicken was 'burned'. This was obviously known to the chef who prepared the meal as the burned side was placed down on the plate. The steak tips were very small and over cooked thus, having little 'steak' flavor and texture. We will try again.

    As always the food was very good and the Gluten free menu was useful for my wife and I. One of things that I appreciate is the friendliness of the all the personnel. I like to banter with the wait staff and they are always fun and responsive. Right now NYAJ's is our favorite restaurant. If there is any criticism, it would be that sometimes the over zealous checking to see if everything is all right can become a little too intrusive.
