One of our favorites on the Cape. Never disappointed with the food or the service. Menu adds seasonal items throughout the year, so it's never the same-old-same-old.

Me and My friend both started off with the side order of the Cescer salad, it was the best I've ever had.For My Entrée, I ordered the Sweet blue burger, My friend ordered the pasta Fornue with four cheeses and sausage. Both dishes were really good.Took home leftovers.

Not for formal dining, but always a great choice for a good meal and lively atmosphere. We love to head over for happy hour and half price apps. Wine list is good and bartender is always very friendly.

I made a reservation and I was seated promptly. The food was delicious and the noise level was fairly low for this type of restaurant.

Only problem worth noting here is the fact that the staff was unable to redeem an OpenTable gift certificate

The Hyannis NYAJs is attached to the Cape Cod Mall so patrons tend to be families more so than the other NYAJ restaurants.
The food prep was good, but also not as good as The NDartmouth site. Their usually delicious bread was slightly undercooked and over salted.
The chicken picatta was flavorful but the pasta texture was a bit rubbery. The chicken was very good. Our waitress was friendly and efficient although she was very busy.
I'll save my visits for the NDartmouth site. Overall our dinner was just okay.

Always enjoy NYAJ! Love the bread and dipping oil. Their oysters are the best!

Usually we have been highly impressed with the food, but this time the fish obviously was cooked some time before serving, the mashed potatoes were dry - Probably prepared long before serving or left on the warming table too long. The cole slaw had an unfamiliar and unflavorful dressing - the waiter promptly returned with substitute vegetable that was very tasty.

Best part about that they comp you when things go sideways. And almost everything did this meal. Apparently, as the hostess/manager explained, "we went from a $9,000 hour to a $16,000 hour in about 90 seconds." OK, thanks for sharing your financials - TMI. What she was referring to was the fact that the restaurant, and consequently kitchen, was deluged with orders in a very short window of time, and evidently, most of those orders came into one station. So a meal that otherwise would have been at the table in 10-12 minutes took nearly 40, and one of the dishes - fried chicken - was grossly overcooked (or perhaps overbaked under the heat lamp while the second part of the order caught up). Thankfully, we had a wonderful young waiter who was glib and funny and kept us entertained. He ended up (with management's approval, I'm sure) comping our dessert and removing the chicken from the bill. So at least the experience - flawed as it was - only cost the price of a burger and a handsome tip.

Look, I'm not out to ruin businesses unless there is genuine rudeness or seriously bad food involved, and neither was the case here. But I write reviews like this to inform this particular restaurant - both in Hyannis and at other NYAJ locations - that they have some logistics issues they need to address in order to bring fresh, hot, properly prepared meals to the table in a timely way. That said, I commend them for their policy of making customers whole when problems interfere with a full enjoyment of the meal.

In the past few months Not Your Average Joe's seems to have gone through a transition. The gluten free menu (I had scallops pan fried) with fantastic mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus... really great food!

Service was a bit lacking, didn't get a refill on empty water until 10 minutes before paying the check. Out of 3 sides we had wanted, but at least what we did get was tasty

Pizza was great but tacos were cold and inedible. Martini was good

Been there often. Disappointed this time. Haddock was tasteless as were mashed potatoes. Asparagus almost raw. New chef? Will give another chance.

We went in on a busy Saturday because we had tickets for a show in the area. We were shown straight to our table by very friendly staff. Our server Daniel was funny, knowledgeable, and attentive. We love that you have the option to order very creative, unusual foods or stick to simple comfort foods here. The menu often features locally sourced foods in season, and they do not charge an arm and a leg for this benefit. While I don't often want a cocktail, their creative concoctions always tempt me to try something new, and this visit did not disappoint. My only complaint was that one item we tried to order was out of stock, a small problem in the midst of great choices.
