I had to send my margarita back it just taste like the mix. Lettuce on top of nachos is a complete dont other than that it was okay.

Fine service. Terrible food. I'm not quite sure how one can ruin fish and chips to such an epic level.

Family gathering to celebrate a milestone birthday. Everybody in the party has different tastes and the menu was accommodating. We all enjoyed the meal including the bread with olive oil. Service was friendly and we were well taken care of. We are always happy at Not Your Average Joes.

We have been there many times and never been disappointed. Using Open Table guaranteed that we were seated immediately. The service was great and the food the same. It's a nice place with a good feel. There are upstairs and downstairs bar areas along with standard restaurant type seating.

I came last year and was really impressed with the environment and the food! I was dreaming of having their bisque again because it was the best I’ve ever tasted. However this year was different. The outdoor seating was no longer in a tent so it was quite cold, even with the heat lamp right at the table. The menu was extremely basic with what seemed like fewer options. And there wasn’t any bisque. But overall the 2 apps I ordered were tasty and I enjoyed the service and time spent.

Great size portion of haddock however, very fishy smell and lacked any flavor. Spinach was also un seasoned and had too much oil or butter in it. I sampled the chili, tad salty and it tasted like it was starting burn, good potential though..service at the bar was fantastic.

We are from Lancaster County and heard about your restaurant. We were not disappointed. We had reservations and arrived about 15 minutes early. Our table was ready and we had a great time. Thank you and we will be back...

Went to Not Your Average Joe's for a family lunch after church. We were seated promptly and offered drinks right away. For some reason we wound-up with two servers that added a bit of confusion but once we ordered food, everything was great. The options on the menu even provided good choices for kids. There were other families there as well, so it appears to be a good choice. I would definitely go back. The food was hot and good but not outstanding.

I met up with my family here to have dinner for my birthday. Our reservation was for 9pm. We were on time. They closed at 10pm. At 10:03pm I immediately felt rushed. Not by our server but her coworkers. One girl in a burgundy and white striped shirt said "the ambience is over" & "it's time to go". It was very unprofessional & rude. I used to waitress so I understand wanting to leave but it wasn't that late.

I had the opportunity to take my 5 year old daughter out for a ‘girls day’ and we stopped here and had a great time. Waiter was excellent and friendly. Food came quickly and we just loved the overall atmosphere! We will be back for our next GD!

Met expectations - food was average bar food Chicken Parm was over fried, Fish and Chips were very good,. Kids Mack and cheese and cheeseburger for the kids were good. Service was better than the food and all was reasonably priced. All in all it was average bar food!

Great food, good service, family style dining. I had the teriyaki salmon with pineapple fried rice…it was cooked to perfection and savory. Waiter came several times to ask if we were done towards the end of the meal…kind of annoying but I rather have a server come too many times than not enough. Overall great dining…I’ll be back.

Maybe it just wasn’t the best night to be there but it was pretty dead. I had written we were coming for my friends birthday and it wasn’t addressed at all so it was a let down.

The service was incredibly slow and we had to ask for things multiple times. We were seated with no silverware or plates. We were given bread and had to ask for napkins, silverware and plates. It took FOREVER to get our food. And shockingly even LONGER to get the check. We actually had to ask for the charcoal multiple times. The servers are so preoccupied with cutting bread and mixing butter that the service is horrible. We won’t be returning here. The mediocre food doesn’t make up for the horribly slow service.

The restaurant was a great place to meet our grandson who attends Villanova. Two of us are gluten free and the variety of foods from which we could select was much appreciated. Convenient parking garage meant no parking nightmares.
