A word from Not Your Average Joe's Seekonk
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. One look at the renderings of our new Seekonk restaurant, and you'll see what we mean.

    I really appreciated the waitress' ability to address my food restrictions so seamlessly! I am new to a dr. ordered gluten free diet, and was concerned that it was going to be a hassle to eat out, but it wasn't at all! Always great service here!

    Our visit was in celebration of my birthday. We were told by friends to register online and I'd be sent an email and coupon for free dinner and dessert. After giving the waitress my email coupon, we half expected to be given a 'limited' menu or buy one, get on for equal or lesser value, but that's not the case. We also though our waitress might be less attentive to us. Quite the contrary, she was very friendly, attentive and made sure our visit was fun and complete and we were offered the full menu. It was a wonderful evening, the food was awesome and can't wait to go back! Thank you.

    Terrible service. Waitress hardly came to our table we saw her eating in the kitchen and we couldn't get her attention. Very rude :/ not the first time we've had this experience. But the food was great, loved the java pork tenderloin.

    Food is always better than average if not excellent. The cocktails are very good and the non-alcoholic drinks are superior to the soft drink option. I don't particularly like being seated in the bar area although it isn't bad, I just prefer being seated in the restaurant area especially when I am with my children although they don't care either way.

    Had a great meal on Sunday, one thing that was not good was that the front door of the restaurant needed to be fixed as it was slamming each time someone entered the reception area other than that everything went fine and it was a special gift to also receive the $15.00 gift card for going there on Father's Day. We will be going again shortly .

    The menu includes so many things that no one would be disappointed. The favorite for all of us is the wonderful bread and the dipping oil with grated cheese. The service is always pleasant and cheerful. The prices in today's market are pretty reasonable. There's a great selection of beers. It is a place where you can't go wrong.

    French fries were warm, not hot and tasted like cardboard. Ordered a burger with onions did not get any. Restaurant was noisy, but it usually is. We go there for the gluten free menu. Service was good. Will go back, would have second thoughts on ordering the pre-cooked fries.

    Entertained clients for lunch and found the food to be delicious. Detracting from the great food was that our server was not having the best day. The restaurant was not at all near capacity yet she was scarce and found little to smile about. The food most definitely beckons a return contrary to the unfriendly, inattentive service.

    NYAJs Seekonk is always one of our go-to spots when we go out with a large group of people as their menu offers a variety of options for special dietary requirements. As always the food was delicious. 2 people in our group did not receive their chowders and this was very quickly addressed by the server who brought our food, two managers, and another waitress. They went above and beyond to assure that the 6 of us had everything we needed. The chowders were taken off the bill and the manager offered free dessert. We declined because we were all stuffed and already had plans for to go for ice cream. He returned with a $10 gift card for each couple. This was not necessary, but was definitely appreciated. We highly recommend NYAJs in Seekonk.

    This is my 5th, I think, time at the Seekonk location and they are consistently fabulous! Our waitress was incredible. She was funny, helpful and she had a great personality! I had two friends with me to celebrate my birthday and my graduation who are new to the whole NYAJs experience and they seemed quite impressed with not only the atomsphere but the food! I think you've two new friends last Saturday night.

    Used to be pretty good for a chain restaurant, but now the quality has really fallen off. We've been twice in the past 2 months, and I'm afraid to say that we won't come back. The appetizer i had (potstickers) were drowning in the dipping sauce, and the one my husband had (Thai rolls) fell apart and had a strange flavor. His linguine with clams was pretty horrible: the noodles were more like udon, not linguine. Swimming in some sort of thin broth, there were four clams and bacon, for some reason. Just yuck all around.

    This was my first experience at Not Your Average Joe`s. The food was really good and cooked perfectly. The service was great. Both me and my guest had large portions of meat/fish. The only down side was the the portion of vegetable sides. They were very small as if they were there for decoration only.

    We made a reservation through Open Table, arrived on time and our booth was waiting. We ordered food and salads. The salads were slow in arriving. We had finished about half our salad and our entrees were delivered. We asked the wait staff to keep the entrees warm. My wife asked our waitress to mention this problem to the manager. Norman, the manager, came to our table and listened to our complaint. He was empathetic and good-natured; he thanked us for helping him improve his operation and even credited our bill for the cost of one of our two entrees! The food was excellent and we appreciated the intelligent customer oriented attitude this restaurant lives by! We will be visiting this restaurant many times in the future.

    This restaurant offers good food. The service is good. The staff is friendly. The restaurant seems extremely clean. In my opinion, the value is not extroardinary. There is no soup or salad offered with your meal. You must order them separately, increasing the total of your bill. The restaurant is not beautiful or romantic, two reasons for which you wouldn't mind paying more. We keep this restaurant in our list of places to go when we are late and don't want to feel that we are the last diners of the evening.

    We consulted open table Sat night when all restaurants in the area pointed to a long wait, NYAJ included. We got a reservation within minutes, and apparently others did too. We were seated within 15 min so I'm not sure reservation made any difference. We loved the menu, there seemed to be an unusual twist to so many familiar dishes that made them uniquely their own and many new specialties too!. Everything I tried was wonderful..wonderful . Really looking forward to going again soon. Staff seemed to care what people thought of their meals and was open to suggestions as well as praise.

    I have been to the Joe's in Randolph, MA; New Bedford, MA; and Seekonk, MA several times. All were superb. Food is always fresh, well presented and a flavor fiesta for your mouth! Whether it is their regular menu items or their specials, there is variety and novelty. The servers are professional but personable, knowledgeable about the menu and just attendant enough. Make reservations on Open-table because they are always busy. I always find they tend to be on the noisy side so if your looking for a quiet romantic dinner, maybe not the best choice!

    Food was nothing short of superb! The bread and oil/cheese is sinful. Husband and I went for a quick date night without kids... However we were seated between two infants and toddlers! It didn't ruin our night of course, just made us laugh at the irony. Can't wait to go back! We ordered the balsamic glazed salmon and the jimbalaya (sp) and we had the Thai lettuce wraps as an appetizer.
