    Took my mom for her birthday and we both were pleasantly surprises by the range of gluten free options. The No Way Jose mocktail was the best non-alcoholic drink I have had in a long time and was perfect for a lunch where I had to work after. My mom loved the little mermaid in the drink so much she took it home! Carrot cake was the absolute best!

    It was meh. I think it used to be better. I'm underwhelmed when I go these days. Had nachos, followed by chicken picatta and a couple of "kids meals" for the kids. All just OK. Service was meh too.

    Went for 6pm dinner, we were seated in a booth as asked for. Waiter was extremely friendly. Food was one of the best dinners ever for Not Your Average Joe's, Chicken Milanese. Everything about this dish was excellent. From the chicken, to the potatoes, to the arugula salad, to the tomatoes. There wasn't a scrap left on either of our plates.

    The restaurant wasn’t busy and service was smooth. The crab cakes entrée was overpriced. The smoky Joe burger was huge, and tasty, although it came with way too many fries. The meatloaf was a little salty and could have used more gravy to moisten it. Otherwise, everything was great.

    Went on Mother's Day and been doing that for years. No specials for Mother's Day, just a "special bonus if you buy a gift card". Service was a bit slow (it is a busier day), food was good, but not spectacular. My wife had the Spring Special Chimichurri Shrimp - $29 for 5 Shrimp on a bed of cauliflower mash and some sparingly placed greens, 3-4 slices of brussel sprouts and some partial leaves - that is closer to an appetizer and the dish is at least $10 over-priced considering what it is. My meal was also good, but priced just a bit higher than it should be in comparison to similar and slightly higher end establishments. A number of menu items and add-ons are reasonably priced, so it seems some of the entrées are disproportionally high. Similar for some of the drinks. My ask - bring back specials for occasions, revisit pricing to match comparatives as well as having a couple good-food-good-value options, and recapture some of the sparkle from years gone by to get back to Way Above Average Joe's.
