We have been coming to Beverly NYAJ, forever and we love, love, love, this restaurant!
Tonight was the last night in the Beverly location, before opening in Peabody next month!
Everyone is so nice and accommodating! We enjoy going on our birthdays as well as other occasions, and the food is delicious!
Not your average Joes is one of my favorite restaurants.

The food was good, but they were out of a few menu items. We didn't realize it was their last night before moving to a new location. We will give them another try after their move. Eric, our waiter was very friendly and helpful.

We have never had a bad meal at NYAJ. Love sitting at the bar for a drink and a few apps or sitting in the dining room with the family

Busy place, great food! Sadly this location has closed; I went for one last - delicious - meal. Although NYAJ will reopen in a month at the mall, I assume with the same menu, for me, part of the appeal of the No. Beverly location was that it was NOT at the mall!

I've been a NYAJ's fan for a few years. The food is consistently good (pizza is excellent!), and the restaurant is just fun. They cope well with intolerance issues (the Admiral cannot eat onion or garlic), and the servers have been universally friendly. Appetizers at the bar 4-6 are an especially good deal.

Food and service always above average since opening many years ago. Small regional chain with low staff turnover and interesting menu changes each season.

Our server Monique was phenomenal! Very personable but not over bearing. We had a great last minute Monday night dinner out!

Lives up to its reputation. Good selection of choices, some interesting specials, nice sangria in a family friendly atmosphere. Staff is always helpful. This one was closing in a few days and moving to a new location in Peabody, but they had a full menu.

We count on NYAJ for excellent food and good service. This was a gathering on friends, and the entire experience was delightful. We use open table and always get a booth when we request and also find the servers very responsive. Our party especially liked the sesame hoisin salmon salad, the pork tenderloin, the cod, and the chicken quesadillas.

So-so experience. Waitstaff not too friendly. Our table and seats were not clean. Atmosphere was frenzied....not in a good way. We made a reservation and initially they could not find it and seemed reluctant to seat us until they found it.

Our party went here prior to attending a performance at the NSMT. As always, the food was good, the staff friendly and the ambiance casual and inviting. The waiter that we had was a bit slow but we had plenty of time so it was not an issue. The location in Beverly near the theatre and the 15% discount on food for theatre goers makes this a favorite stop.

I ordered a side salad with grilled salmon.
Next time I order this dish or any salad dish, I will request the salad dressing, in this case, vinaigrette "on the side"; not on the salad.
The salad greens were wilty and "very wet"...rather soggy.
The salmon, however, was very good.
