I've been going to Not Your Average Joes for years, and I must say for the first time I was disappointed in my meal. The menu is rather limited these days, and a lot of my favorites are no longer on the menu. My dining partner is vegetarian, and found very few meals to pick from. Almost everything comes with chicken... and even the one pasta dish that didn't include chicken, had prosciutto instead. I had the buffalo chicken tenders, but honestly they were just mediocre. They were tough and tasted like they had been cooked earlier and then just re-heated when I ordered them. All in all, the food was disappointing. The highlight of the day was the service. The waitress was terrific. She took her time with us... checked in on us repeatedly... and was personable and pleasant. She saved a rather so-so trip. Rarely had to write a review like this, but I hope things will improve at the restaurant. I've always enjoyed Not Your Average Joes, and I'd like to able to go back!
Food seemed to have a lot of garlic. Mash potatoes were an odd color and had a strange taste.
The food is always consistent and the service has always been good.
Cobb salad was supposed to have chicken. There was no chicken and the server just said “ sorry ‘bout that.” I would like the manager to contact me at (781) 588-6316
Food and service was great! The rose sangria was delish!!
I have some health issues and therefore I am limited to what I can eat. At Not Your Average Joe's there are many choices. Everything taste good and I can request modifications if necessary. The cooks do a good job with any requests. The main reason I love NYAJ is that the food is excellent!!!
The food choices are amazing especially for someone who needs a Gluten Free menu...the waitress was wonderful - couldn’t have been happier with the food and the service.
Waitress was clearly stretched so we had difficulty getting ahold of her for ordering, etc
It was a awesome visit. Everyone was friendly and the food was delicious! We absolutely ADORE the bread and oil that is served before the meal. Keep it coming! Thank you.
We sat outside so it was very quiet. The food was good...the menu hasn’t changed in a long time but with the pandemic that is to be excused.
Our server was and pleasant and efficient, but not over bearing. I’ve had her before and enjoyed the same level of service. I wish I could remember her name to give her a shoutout because she is an asset to NYAJ’s in Norwell.
Simply amazing! We had a great experience yesterday, for lunch. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff, perfect amount of attention and food was very brought out very promptly. I had the tuna poke bowl. It was very, very fresh, with outstanding flavor. Our server was fantastic and I highly recommend stopping by the Norwell location for lunch or dinner!
Great normal menu but the special Arctic char was outstanding. As always the carrot cake (gluten free) is to die for.
It was great to get back in here!
First date. We did outdoor dining and it was a great night for it. The lake across the street made for a gorgeous view, and the ambiance was perfect. Prices were okay, but the portions were a bit smaller than I remember. The food was delicious, as always, and the service was top notch.
I’ve yet to have a bad experience at any NYAJ locations. They’re doing something right.
Please remove my ratings. THE RESTAURANT WAS CLOSED TODAY! We had to find another place. Please update my record & your info for NYAJ.
Food was good, as usual. Somewhat pricey. Wait service was fair, mainly due to an extremely slow kitchen. Not what I expected for middle of the afternoon. Had to wait nearly an hour for the meal, and it was not busy.
Great waitress and food!
I'm sad the Randolph location remains closed, but nice to know I can go to Norwell!
I had the Chicken and Shrimp Rice Bowl and my son had a Reuben. Both were outstanding! Service was good. It was early on Sunday and very quiet.
Delicious food. Menu has changed since we have last been, less items(assuming its because of Covid) but both my husbands and my meal was delicious. It was a bit chilly in the restaurant and we both kept our jackets on the entire time but otherwise it was a nice quiet meal.
Nice evening - finally going out!
Service is always good, except that night, the server/bartender was more interested in his phone than working
Love Not Your Average Joe's. We eat there at least once a month. Larry and the rest of the staff are very friendly, courteous and they go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. The food is great, and plentiful.
Very friendly staff. Excellent food. Good family atmosphere
We were asked when we arrived to keep our masks on until we got our food and drinks - not a big deal considering we should have had water and bread and oil within a couple minutes of sitting down. But they didn’t even come to our table to greet us for about 10 minutes and didn’t bring with them water or bread. They took our drink and meal order at that time, but never came with our drinks or bread. So after another 10 minutes - 20 minutes in total - of sitting there with our masks on and without any drinks or bread, we got up and walked out. Very disappointed in the service we received.
out of three meals, all three were not up to expectations. one meal was not as described, one meal was extremely undercooked, and one meal was not made correctly and tasted bad.
Got seated next to a group of high school boys and some of the things they were saying weren’t cute at a restaurant.
We have been coming here for years. The food is great and the service is consistently great. Our server and the bartender were new last night but just great! The server checked on us often. The bartender chatted with us. There is no pretentiousness like some of the upscale places near by. Just comfortable and down to earth vibe with great food.
Server was awesome
It was a very quiet nite. Food was out quickly, rice was dry, broccoli plain no flavor.
No draft beer and food and drinks were expensive for what you got.
Excellent as usual
Waitress made me feel like I was doing them a favor for dining with them. The food was average and the price still high. There are other options around with better atmosphere and value. The menu was paper. But the side plates just came out of the dishwasher (wet and with dirty spots on it)
I was extremely disappointed on my experience. I get it that it’s hard to keep motivated during COVID, but my family and I tried to support businesses by going out. Will not be going there again.
HATE leaving a poor review but I hope management can figure out how to fix this .... for years I took my family to nyaj and it was a fav for us..... I always rave about how it was the BEST local chain concept... .. cpl years ago it began to turn bad and keeps getting worse BUT I’m hopeful that they can figure it out
Diners spread more than 6 feet, masks were used and waitress was excellent!
The restaurant was deserted, not what I'm used to. The waitress wore plastic gloves which are actually unhygienic if not changed between every guest interaction. Just expected NYAJ to have a more welcoming environment.
Yes it's a chain but the quality of food is on point and the team works hard to give the best service, even in these strange times.
great place to eat and just have a relaxing night.
Food was excellent as was service. Restaurant was very quiet as it was a Monday night. Very clean and following all protocols. Will definitely be back!
