Hmmmm, let's see. Ok, here we go. Every time we go there it is the very best of the best. 9 times out of 10 we prefer the same thing. My wife lived the mustard crusted chicken sandwich with a side salad. I order the tuna wontons, double order of tuna, and it is just so wonderful. But the meal wouldn't be complete without our most favorite person Kendra. She has a beautiful personality, and is the type of person you can tell is genuinely sincere and caring. Honestly, if she wasn't working on a day we were going to go, we would wait until another day that she was there. Thanks Joe's, and thank you Kendra.
great place, I go back often and will continue to go back especially for the Monday oysters, yummy!
The food was not as good during our visit. I'm unsure whether the food quality has deteriorated since our visits in the past. The bread, which we used to love, seemed different as well and not as tasty.
The restaurant has set up a comfortable safe space outside to sit with a tent so if it starts to rain you won’t feel a thing. The servers were completely safe with masks and they even encourage the Internet menu v ones to be cleaned so you’re safer. Amazing food.
Was very safe and staff and food was amazing and it was nice they all surprised my neice they sang to her
NYAJs is always a good option for lunch or dinner. The food is of consistently high quality, and the servers are efficent and pleasant.
Chuck is the best server. very attentive and friendly
We stopped by for lunch and drinks. Waitstaff was great and the food was good. We enjoyed both the food and drinks. We sat in the patio with two sides opened and two sides enclosed. We felt safe.
it was BAD BAD BAD. Expected a nice night but the food was bad, our waitress was rude, and it was very noisy.
Dependable and very friendly service. Something for everyone too..
They do the best Caesar salad and burger, they have a nice tented outdoor area with string lights, and are always super friendly.
The covid precautions are excellent and I always feel very safe.
Moved reservation to indoor from outdoor seating before arriving. Took an hour for the entrees to arrive. While having bread, no napkins or silverware were delivered. Our sodas were comped because the food was slow in being prepared/delivered. The shrimp scampi was outstanding, probably the best I've ever had.
Had a lunch meeting and it was great! A bit chilly the day so we opted for inside dining. Food was delicious and service was outstanding. Highly recommend
disappointed that they keep changing menu(in other words, swap ingredients and raise the prices )
Jambalaya now served with linguini instead of Spanish rice ( the way it’s supposed to be)
Had an amazing time. The tuna is so fresh you would think you are at a seafood restaurant in the water down the cape. They do it 2 ways and I love them both. My wife loves the mustard crusted chicken sandwich, especially the lemon aioli. Great job NYAJ. WE LOVE YA
Just went for a drink and app. It was good. Always a good time at Joes!
Fantastic place. Love going here.
The service was very nice and very considerate of these COVID times. They allowed us to evaluate outdoor and indoor seating and decide where to sit. The server was excellent.
Food was excellent.
We had a reservation for patio seating but a thunderstorm was underway so we were invited to indoor seating. Our first time back in a restaurant since March! As would be expected from NYAJ, followed all the rules and still friendly atmosphere. We really enjoyed the food and drink, background music, and of course the staff. Still thinking about the strawberry shortcake two days later!
Great food and kind staff!
I took my sister and nephew out for dinner and made reservations for 8pm - when we arrived (@7:50) the restaurant was closing. They kept the kitchen open for us and a few other guests. The host and waiters were very nice and the food was good as well.
Always have a great experience at NYAJ’s, even with pandemic dining!
I did outdoor seating and overall it was very nice!! It was very loud but the food was great and the service was good as well!
It's been our first time to a restaurant since the pandemic began. So it was a treat to be eating out — and since the weather was nice it was really great to be out, for sure.
Food was great as was the service! No complaints and would recommend to others for sure.
Great food, great service, amazing Buffalo mango BBQ chicken pizza!!! Great Job NYAJ'S!!! Oh and make sure to try the "peanut butter thing"
I go there often but the quality of the Sirloin Steak this time was awful ! Hopefully they will fix it whatever was wrong.
Very accomadating to me and my party. Look forward to coming back!
Great outdoor seating patio
Plenty of indoor space and outdoor space.
Great meal, as always!
Food was very good, service was excellent. Would recommend
Love the outdoor seating for social distancing. Our 1st time out since being in State lock down!
Not Your Average Joe’s is back and the food, service and experience was great!
The service emphasized safety and distancing while still warm and friendly.
Great dining and so nice to go out yet felt very safe!
It was nice to be out dining. Pizza and salad were great.
Had lunch outside, thankfully a nice breeze. Waitress, Emma, was excellent. I had the "impossible" burger and it was outstanding! Thought it was real hamburg because it looked and tasted like it. Other 3 people enjoyed their meal.
We had a great Father's Day dinner. The cocktails and dinners were scrumptious.
The only thing that I did not like was a guest was allowed to bring a huge German shepherd dog in the patio area to sit with them while they had dinner . That was ridiculous as other people were sitting at tables nearby also having dinner.
Dogs should not be allowed in any eating establishment , especially a dog that size .
It was our first Covid outing/dining on patio. Its great to be welcomed back! and wish every success in the “ new norm” of dining. Good job!!
Good food as always and they did a good job of social distancing everyone safely.
Service, food, tables...everything was great. It was nice to finally eat out, and we felt very comfortable. I would definitely make a reservation online.
It's nice to get out and patronize a restaurant. Everyone is struggling right now. It's nice to be able to support those who haven't worked in a while. We've eaten at the Watertown location before, but it was inside. It was nice to sit outside on a nice evening. Food and service was very good. Will certainly go back.
