    I love the menu options- everything is creative and prepared to perfection! Service was mediocre; the only time the waitress showed any interest was when my husband realized he didn’t order what he thought he had, which she found funny.

    The restaurant was surprisingly busy for 4 in the afternoon, clearly more diners had the same idea we did to knock dinner out early. It seemed unexpected from a staffing perspective, but the staff was friendly and professional and made the most of it. The chicken Caesar wrap was delicious and huge, as was the le kids pizza which was enough for 3-4 meals for my 4 year old.

    Not a great experience. Our server was new and not ready to be left alone - yet she was. Appetizers never arrived, even after we asked about them. Had to flag down our server 3 times to get drinks. She asked one time if we needed anything, and we did, but she walked away without waiting for the answer. Saw her wandering around the restaurant quite a bit. The food runner handed a blazing hot dish to one of us without saying it was hot and walked away silently after the recipient yelped. Watched a dad at the next table grab the hot pizza from the spot in front of his very young son where it was placed. The manager was called to that table and we saw him both apologize to the diners, and berate the server. After paying the bill and walking away from the table, we asked to speak with a manager. We shared these and other issues with him. We figured he would want to know that staff was burning guests. He asked how the food was and we said the food was good, and his response "well then we did something right." That was it, and that conversation as well as seeing him in action confirmed for us that it's not just the un-trained staff, the problem is with management. Positively won't be back

    The outside was filthy. Tables covered in dirty dishes outside with trash from Chipotle next door littered around. The tuna bowl was chewy and average at best. Friendly waiter was probably the best.

    We’ve been to other NYAJ’s and the seem to be going downhill. The service and ambiance was fine but I was disappointed in the food. I ordered the meatloaf with a side salad. The meatloaf was obscured by a gelatinous mass called cheese that really detracted from any redeeming quality from the rest of the dish. Very heavy handed. What really capped it off was the mixed green side salad that was literally 10 cents of wilted lettuce thrown into a tiny bowl - no tomato, no onion, no nothing. I felt ripped off. I regretted taking my wife there for dinner and wished we had gone elsewhere. Hard pass is my recommendation.

    Great restaurant with interesting menu items. My son decided on this restaurant by reviewing menus online, it has pizza and pasta to please the kids, and seafood and salad for parents. My husband and me are on a diet program and we found the food options were excellent. My Ahi Tuna salad, which featured fresh mango, was superb! The place was not crowded for a holiday weekend.

    Very fun, lively, lunch so not to crowded. Nice menu. My wife had the Crunch Salad, reputed to be the most popular item in the menu. Nice e size portion with out being to big. I had the pulled pork sandwich with pickles and sweet potato fries which Elisabeth enjoyed also. Excellent list of wines by the glass including Cakebread & Prophecy Sauvignon Blancs. We sat at the bar where the service was excellent and the TV’s were showing NCAA softball and lacrosse Highly recommended

    Liked the setting - open, spacious, lots of booths, felt Covid safe. Service efficient though server had IMO off-putting sense of humor. Just stick to business. There were two Pinot noirs on the menu. I ordered the least expensive, charged for the more expensive, $3.00 difference. Not worth the trouble of bringing up but aggravating nonetheless. Food is OK comfort food. I went with mustard chicken and mustard flavor could be more pronounced, a bit too subtle for my taste. Accompanied by good mashed potatoes and plain green beans. As always, the complimentary focaccia bread and oil/cheese dip served at the outset is the standout here. You just can’t get enough of it.

    NYAJ has been a favorite of ours for over 20 years. We’ve frequented multiple restaurants, repeatedly, in Dartmouth, Methuen and Hyannis. The Hyannis restaurant recently underwent a major renovation and staff change that we didn’t particularly like — it’s mostly a sports bar now — but we had always considered the place a go-to for great food, freshly prepared, at a reasonable price. Sadly, no more. While the service was ok, the food’s quality and quantity have cratered. A dinner Caesar salad arrived looking tired and perhaps half the size one would expect. My husband’s cheese pizza was limp and tasteless, with the exception of the tomato sauce which was ok. With no alcohol or dessert, we ended up paying $50 including an appropriate tip for good service. The experience overall felt as if NYAJ has shifted its mission from a great place to head on weekend nights before a film — friendly with kids, a great vibe, and an imaginative, delectable menu — to a competitor with Five Guys and Jersey Mike’s, but with booze. Those aren’t bad places by any means, but it’s just a very different experience from what it’s been for so long — and now way overpriced.

    Very enjoyable. We were seated promptly and had a terrific server (Melissa). The food was great. Of course, we have eaten at NYAJ in the past so we knew what to expect. However, being from Boston we had not eaten at the Hyannis one before. Entire staff was friendly with just the right amount of attention.

    While the food was delicious, I’m concerned for their evacuation policies during a tornado warning. All customers’ phones buzzed with the National weather service tornado warning in Hyannis. There was no announcement from management about what to do or if there was a plan. I will follow up with the chain to understand protocol. While no tornado touched down, I wonder if we were in Oklahoma, management would have announced an evacuation?

    Hadn’t been to Joe’s in a while. I remember the menu being a bit more varied than the one I saw tonight. Found my meal to be a bit pedestrian. I ordered the almond crusted baked salmon expecting almonds, sliced and toasted or even ground and toasted. Instead I got almond dust which didn’t have much flavor. The salmon was extremely thin, Not like one would normally expect. The almond rice was OK, and the chard broccoli was blah. I remember Joe’s being a lot more inventive and a lot more flavorful.
