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.

    Average Joe's did not honor our Open Table Reservation! We arrived 5 minutes early for a 5:30 reservation, and were given a transponder and told to wait. After 30 minutes we gave up and left. What's the point of making a reservation if the restaurant doesn't hold up its end of the bargain by actually reserving a table??

    Had higher expecations. Food was just okay, nothing to write home about or to make me want to go again. Waiter was inexperienced but I guess that was to be expected but there should have been better training, especially on how to serve and not reach across other guests.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    Although the food was tasty and very good, I do think the dishes are a bit pricey for the quantity of food. 1/2 dozen scallops with two sides. Was not worth the price for this dish. I ordered : rosemary skewered scallops* new bedford scallops threaded on a rosemary skewer, pan-seared and drizzled with an orange-chipotle chili glaze, over israeli cous cous with roasted butternut squash, spinach and bacon $19.99. I would go back again but not pay this price for this dish. I have been to other restaurants that offer much more food for that price. The waiter Richard from the Seekonk location was very attentive and provided our table with excellent service. He knew the menu well and suggested a great wine, which I loved.

    Just opened in Seekonk, NYAJ is a welcome addition to the area. We ate late after a movie on a Friday night, and the place was still hopping. The food was good (tuna wontons are stellar), but our server was not very attentive. After 10 minutes waiting for some wine to go with the entree, my wife's meal was cold and apparently the server noticed her agitation. Unsolicited, a manager did come over to apologize and offered a gift certificate for next time.

    We have been regulars at Joe's in Dartmouth forever. So excited to have this new location which is minutes from where we now live in East Providence. As always - excellent food, great bar, friendly service and bread / dip to die for! Long wait (same as Dartmouth location), but with a reservation, we had a table in no time. Definately our go-to restaurant!

    Food in general was goos although the farfalle pasta dish could have been a little larger. Also asked for asparagus to be added to the dish since you advertise being agreeable to special requests but the asparagus was served on the side instead. Although the enchilada dish was good, the tortillas themselves were cruchy on the ends and overcooked. I do like that that there is a choice of salad ro french fries with the sandwiches and the crab cake blt was tasty.

    We LOVE NYAJ and were happy to see the new spot in Seekonk open! The menu is spot on and as exciting as it is in Dartmouth (yum for the bread and oil too.... delish!) but the place still has a feeling like you just moved into your house and you're psyched to have people over but you're still not in your groove just yet and you haven't hung all your pictures. Know what I mean? Our waitress was efficient but a little brisk, polite but not super friendly... she told us she was new to Joe's and being a waitress. Understandable. Delicious food (almond crusted goat cheese salad and honey mustard chicken) but I missed the bright bold colors of the other locations...this one is darker and a little more brooding. Very good experience over all! :)

    Went there with a party of 6 New Year's Eve. As it is a new spot, it was extremely crowded. Even with a reservation, we had to wait for a table; right inside the front door. Not the greatest location. Wait staff was busy, but friendly. Service was OK, but that could've been due to the crowded atmosphere. Drinks were good, but not timely. Chow was very good, although my expectation of my personal order was not to order. They left in an ingredient I asked them to omit. Overall though, I'd go again. I think it will get better as they find their rythmn.

    We reserved our table and crossed our fingers- the restaurant had been open less than a week and we were going on New Year's Eve! We were happily surprised, because the wait was minimal - 5-10 min at the door vs. walk-ins being told 55-65 min, which was to be expected. Food was fabulous, service was tops, and everyone, including management bent over backwards to please diners. We will be back- often!

    Great new addition to the before/after movie eats. Food was very good...fresh, healthy, innovative dishes. The waitstaff was especially attentive. The managers greeted every table and welcomed all new comers with discount cards and instructions to sign up for birthday coupons. Because my birthday had just passed I was given a dessert of my choice. Dessert was amazingly delicious! Presentation of plates was noticeable. The menu also included a wonderful selection of vegetarian choices. Definitely kid friendly.

    Our party of 5 had 12:30 reservations but were not seated until shortly after 1:00. We were seated in the bar area at a long table with a bench on one side and just one chair on the other. We ended up having to seat 4 of us on the bench with the 5th in the chair. It was a very lopsided configuration and impossible for those on either end of the bench to hear conversation. That aside, the food was good and the staff attentive. The focaccia served with olive oil, red pepper and parmesan cheese was delicious and was refilled as we waited for our food. We'll definitely go back.

    We have always gone to NYAJ in Dartmouth and it is one of our favorite restaurants...the food and service are always consistently wonderful. We could not wait for the new location in Seekonk to open. We went there on Thursday, December 29th. The food was outstanding as usual, but it was very loud and we could not hear ourselves talk. We figured it was because it had just opened and was very crowded. The good news is that I made reservations on OpenTable and the 7 of us just walked in and sat down. Our server Justin was awesome and we remembered him from the Dartmouth location. We are definitely going back because we love NYAJ!

    We are so glad to have NYAJ in Seekonk. As former residents of Boston and consistent diners of NYAJ-Watertown we were so excited to see NYAJ opening in Seekonk and made a reservation to dine on the first open day. This location of NYAJ was just as great as the NYAJ in Watertown. The drinks were spectacular, the food was amazing, and the service was great! We were looking forward to the NYAJ bread but this was just ok (would have preferred it to be warmer). Nevertheless, NYAJ is definitely the best restaurant in the area and we will be going back as often as we can!
