Good spot for groups to gather - appreciate that they have lots of different table/seating options and sizes. The menu is vast, as are the drink options! Overall, the food is good though I did find the burger I ordered to be just fine.

Seated right away. Server was pretty good. When we wanted an additional minute to look at the menu, it took the server 10 minutes to get back to us. Food took a while to get to the table since it seemed a bit busier, but was worth the wait.

We made a reservation because of that time of day being busy on a Saturday. Glad we did. We were seated almost immediately while others who were walkins had a bit of a wait. Not Your Average Joe’s reminds me of the beer hall days in Boston and Cambridge with concrete floors and lots of noise because of terrible acoustics. If you are into that type of ambiance, this is your place. We ordered a pizza and the salmon on mashed sweet potatoes with grilled Brussel sprouts. The bread and seasoned oil dip was excellent! The pizza was pretty good too. The grilled Brussel sprouts darn near ruined the salmon mashed sweet potatoes entree, but I managed to cut off their hard bottoms and peeled off the first couple of layers of leaves and that made them decent enough. This entree is in a box which means it is a favorite. That is why I ordered it. It was an OK experience but won’t be rushing back anytime soon.

This was my first time to a Not Your Average Joes as well as my first time using Open Table. We arrived right on time and had barely sat down in the waiting area when my name was called that our table was ready. Menus were already on the table including a Gluten Free Menu (without having to ask!) Our waiter, John, came over promptly to welcome us, noted that I had picked up the GF menu & said he already prompted the kitchen to have GF Bread ready, then took our order. The food was served promptly & was hot & delish, including the GF Bread & dipping sauce. Prices were very reasonable, especially for a place that emphasizes locally sourced foods. We were made to feel welcome to linger after the meal and not rushed out the door. Will definitely be back! Worth the drive!

We went to Joe's to celebrate my birthday. The staff was wonderful, making suggestions when necessary. They recommended the carrot cake for dessert...absolutely terrific. I really loved the chipotle sweet potato mash that I chose as a side with the delicious simply grilled scallops. What a perfect meal. My husband loved his steak tips.
My only criticisms are the slowness of the service (leisurely, but a bit too slow) and the overall noisiness in the room. We've always felt that the acoustics are poor, hard to hear the music. Always a bit of a roar in the air. Otherwise, a perfect birthday meal. Look forward to returning!

There were 9 of us that remembered to come for lunch and Brandi was very attentive to our needs. Most of us arrived at noon and we waited until 12:30 to order. Brandi checked with us a couple of times after taking and delivering our drink orders. We ordered meals, and sandwiches and everything was well prepared. The gluten free option was offered immediately. Their bread is really great with the house oil and my personal favorite, chicken picatta was cooked perfectly and I was able to take home some for a light meal last night. An overall successful dining experience with HS classmates from over 55 years ago! All good!!

Food and service were excellent. I did ask for a table not a booth. Got a booth. I am very short and sitting in a booth can be uncomfortable. The booth sit very low to the floor leaving me feeling like I need a booster seat. Getting in and out is difficult when you are short.

Young men dressed too casualy dressed . Hat on head at the table . Attire more suited for outdoor work .

Too bad, this is what we find at many restaurants today. For the young ladies, choices are limited.

Sorry, but when I see jeans and tees at church services then what should I expect elsewhere .

It would show leadership and maybe set an example if your restaurant insisted , no hats at table . I ask, do

have the courage to insist , wearing of no hats in this restaurant.

This was for a birthday and I made online reservations. I had to go to the hostess stand to ask to send someone over because we had waited about 10 minutes with no acknowledgement from the waitstaff. A waitress did finally come over with bread then we waited another 10 minutes for water. Definitely not a place I will revisit!

I've been here several times, this was a slow tuesday night. The service was good, and the food came out quick - perhaps too quick - my Tuscan Chicken sandwich was practically raw inside. The waiter and manager were very apologetic, comped my meal and quickly made me another which was much better.

The food is always delicious, but Wednesday night our service was extremely slow. Took almost 20 minutes to get our drinks and our waitress seemed distracted. She was busy with other tables too much and was absent from ours for some time.
