The food was outstanding. I had the meatloaf and my husband had the shrimp fettuccine. Both were excellent. The service was on point. Our server Kayla was very attentive and personable.
The drinks were also very good. Overall a great time.

Goat cheese on my salad would be better warm. The bread is incredible. Over all one of my favorite places to eat.

JOes is always great! Tim our waiter was great, food was great as always. Hostess staff weren’t as friendly as other locations I’ve been too as well as bathroom was really not clean!

My first time eating at Not Your Average Joe's and wasn't impressed. The bread with oil was good and so was the service, that's about it. I ordered clam chowder and a Caesar salad. The chowder didn't have any clam or potatoes, just chunky pieces of something (not sure what it was) and the Caesar salad had absolutely no dressing or taste to it. I'll definitely go elsewhere next time for my pre-movie dinner.

My food was outstanding. The Vday menu was wonderful, espically the "burry me in bubbles" drink. Both myself and fiance love NYAJ. It is our go to date place. We drive about 45 mins just to go.

Went to dinner on valentine day and our server Timothy was unbelievable. He was on top of everything and made sure we were all set and kept checking on us to see if we need anything. Food and service was great I will be going back again and bring some friends

I like Not Your Average Joe's. We go there regularly. It's a little on the pricey side, but not crazy. Drinks are expensive, but I rarely drink anyway. I ordered off the simply grilled menu. I got chicken and it was a little tough. They gave me two very thin breasts and overcooked them. Not so much that it was inedible or that I bothered to complain. The seasoning was very good too. I'll be back, I just might get the salmon instead. I like that to be a little overdone.

When we arrive for our 6:30 reservation there was a line out the door. They said they were so sorry but all the tables were seated and they had multiple booked reservations as well as call ahead seating tables. Absolutely not acceptable to participate in a reservation system when you actually don't have tables to seat the people with reservations. There were at least 60 people who were expressing a frustration. All the hostess could do was shrug your shoulders and say I'll do the best I can.

We've yet to have a bad experience at NYAJ. Everything was delicious and well prepared. I do have to say however, that the forno pasta was a bit on the bland side. Other than that, another great experience.

Even though we had reservations we had to wait in a crowded entryway for 20 minutes. We were seated next to the bathrooms in a booth that was squeezed in, not enough room for 4 people to sit comfortably. Our waiter was very slow. When the food came it was good, however. I probably won't go again on a weekend, though.

THE HERB-CRUSTED HADDOCK. WAS AMPLE AND VERY TASTY, ROASTED CARROTS AND SPROUTS COOKED WELL BUT A BIT BLAND. THIS WAS MY WIFE’S ENTREE.

I LIKED MY PESTO SALMON WITH THE PECANS BUT THOUGHT THE SPROUTS WERE TOO FIRM.

WE BOTH USED TO THINK JOE’S FOOD WAS TOO HIGHLY SALTED BUT THAT SEEMS NOT TO BE THE CASE ANY LONGER. THANKS FOR THAT.

IS IT MY IMAGINATION OR HAS THE MENU CHANGED. THERE SEEMED TO BE FEWER APPETIZERS TO CHOOSE FROM.

NEVERTHELESS, WE REALLY LIKE JOE’S, GO OFTEN EVEN WHEN IT ISN’T A BIRTHDAY, AND LIKE TO SEE NEW DISHES SEASONALLY. THE WAITSTAFF IS ALWAYS PLEASANT , EFFICIENT. AND ACCOMODATING. WE’LL DEFINITELY BE BACK.
