Food was quite good, as it usually is at Not Your Average Joe’s. I enjoyed the Mustard Crusted Chicken and my wife had the Chicken Shrimp and Rice bowl. Service was a little slow. This might be our last meal out for a while as the temperature was getting quite cool and we aren’t comfortable eating inside at this point

Our first time back at NYAJ since the shut down was a disappointment. The menu was restricted and not very exciting. The lobster bisque and ahi tuna wontons were good but the caesar salad was bland and the chicken fingers were bad. We used to enjoy buck a shuck night on Mondays but it appears these will not return.

I'm sorry, I forgot my server's name, but she was wonderful. The service was excellent and the food was great. Unfortunately, the outdoor dining has little ambiance - not your fault!

Average food. Menu and food used to be much better. Could use heaters while sitting outside on cold, metal chairs. But in these difficult days of Covid, still glad they're open and serving customers.

Food was good. Service was very slow for a restaurant that is at 1/2 capacity. Hate the fact they now have classified 90% of their non-alcoholic drinks as "specialty beverages" which means they cost $4.50 and you do not get free refills. One of the 2 specialty drinks now comes in a tall skinny class which is mostly ice. The other drink was lemonade.
What a total waste of money! Next time we'll get free water, free lemon slices and free sugar and make our own.

Waitress was a bit overbearing. She wouldn’t let us sit first and chat even though the restaurant was only 20% capacity. She dint know how to let people enjoy their meal

We love Not your average joes! The food is always consistently good and the staff is friendly and very accommodating. We dined on Labor Day outside on the patio in Burlington with our almost 3 year old and they had all tables socially distanced and servers were masked. I have always loved this restaurant but they have pivoted with COVID and are still amazing. Highly recommend. They also have gluten free options (and bread!) available which is wonderful! Great choice for causal dining!

Our reservation was for 7:30 and out table was not ready before 7:40. As soon as we sat our server rushed over and the first thing she said was :” we close at 8”. I was socked! I said I didn’t realized you would close so soon and she said it is what it is and it is open table’s fault.
Without looking at the beer list I asked if they have Allagash and she pointed at the menu and said “you got what’s in there honey”!! I always try to be understanding of older servers and how exhausting their job must be, but come on! I haven’t risk my health and treating myself to a dinner to put up with your sour face and passive aggressive comments. I don’t recommend this place to anyone.

Food was great but service was very slow - slow to take our order, slow to refill drinks. At the end of the meal we had ordered fruit for kids but got too cold to stay (outdoor seating), and so asked to take it to go. Got to the car and realized it had never been served. Went back in to get it and had to argue with the server to get it (we had already paid the bill!) - another server wound up vouching for us. We used to be regulars here, but don’t think we will be back anytime soon.

Nice lunch at NYAJ. I had the mustard crusted chicken BLT sandwich with field greens. My wife had the avocado bacon turkey sandwich with field greens. Both sandwiches were delicious. Service was prompt although the restaurant was not busy at 230 PM. Only negative is that the bathroom needed to be cleaned.

Waitress was nice. But Think She forgot to put in the the appetizer when she took our drink order. Took 40 minutes to get the appetizer. Restaurant was on quiet side. Meals were good. Steak tips were good. Just broccoli was undercooked and mashed potatoes need more flavor.

We had a great table. It was quiet. It was a nice night however when we ordered our wine we we were each brought two glasses that weren’t clean. You could still see the red wine stains. This kind of turned me off but the poor waitress felt bad. Although I think I she should have looked before even bringing them out.

After we received new glasses. The evening went well

The food was as good as always. The outdoor area was set up on the pavement which was littered with paper wrappers. Being the first customers of the day we thought it would have been a lot cleaner.

Very nice . The only disappointment was the lack of gluten free foods and beer. We could always count on that .
However many of the dishes could be made gf.

the ONLY reason im giving 4 stars and not 5 is tgat they didnt infirm us until we tried to oay the check that noncash was accepted. there were NO signs outside or in. Nothing was said when we were seated. no indication on the menu. we were using cash someone fave us as an anniversary gift. then i had to use a card. was a hassel to deposit cash etc... guests need to be informed of this at the begining. so in spite of the incredible food and server, the hassel caused by the no cash policy and not informing us until i put cash out to pay the bill was an important oversight.
