NYAJ is always a great place to go. Their focaccia w olive oil and Parmesan dip is to die for (the bread they give you while waiting). I’ve found their dishes to vary - some are amazing and some are ok. This time I had the mustard (something) chicken, which was great and my hubby had the haddock which was meh. I’ve def had more good food there than “meh” food though!!
Buck as schuck oysters is a great deal. Otherwise food average-good and appropriately priced. Nice neighborhood venue.
They are advertising brunch but then only had 2 choices. A little disappointed. $12.50 for 2 small pieces of French toast (although very good) seemed off. They are always so good so being kind of harsh. High expectations
My wife has gluten and soy allergies and I have a dairy intolerance. Our server was amazing! He understood cross contamination and double checked ingredients. When our meal was served, we were reminded that we could not share as we each had food which contained something the other could not eat.
I like NYAJs as they are always reliable with friendly service and delicious, fresh made dishes and pizza. There are many choices for diners with various wants including vegetarian and gluten free. My favorites are the pizzas, chicken enchiladas, steak tips, chicken quesadilla and my all time fav ahi tuna wontons which you can also get on slices of cucumbers. Enjoy.
Our waitress was great!! Very upbeat and friendly.....she took our order without writing it down and got it right.......
My complaint was that I ordered my Steak Tips to be Medium Well and it came Very Well Done.....I didnt send it back because by the time it would get re cooked everyone else would be done with their dinner.....
Excellent steak wedge!
You can never go wrong at Not Your Average Joe's quality food, good service and nice atmosphere.
We will be back again!
Good food. Great desserts
I usually have a better experience here but tonight was not too pleasant. Our server was not very attentive. He never returned to our table, except to take our orders and bring our check. Luckily we were paying cash and left it on the table. We might still be sitting there had we paid by credit card. Also,the chicken in my Picatta seemed almost artificial. It was rubbery and seemed almost under cooked. For a restaurant that boasts fresh, and cooked to order, it didn't seem so.
Always great. Thanks for another memorable meal with friends.
Not Your Average Joe's has become our go to restaurant. Great service and food. Town parking makes it convenient and the ability to make reservations is most helpful
When ecquestioned about a birthday email. The manager told us that they would give us 15.00 off and 2free desserts.
NYA Joe's is always yummy and they have my favorite cocktail - the Pomegranate Passion Martini. We used our Open Table rewards and had a huge dinner with just the tip paid out of pocket!
We moved from Watertown but love to eat here when we’re in the area! The food is so great and always have been happy with the service! Can’t wait to go again!
Took my 2 boys, 4 & 2, solo to dinner. The staff was so awesome - quick, friendly, helpful and attentive. Our server even sat down and hung out at our table with the 2 year old while I took his brother to the bathroom. They were quick to bring the food but didn’t rush us at all. Best spot in town for my kids. And I had a good steak entree to boot. Huge win.
went for dinner on a rare night off......a margarita, 5 oysters and 5 shrimp were yummy!
Birthday celebration for my wife. My son bought a cake and the server graciously stored in frig. and also added some extra fruits. Very accommodating...
Waiter was great. Food was tasty
Overall great options and menu
It was a Valentine's Day/birthday celebration. It was a pleasant evening the wait staff was friendly and considering how busy they were did a good job getting thereThe food out.
NYAJ's is my favorite place to eat. Food is consistently great! Keep up the good work!
Had a nice pre-Valentine's day Dinner at Joe's. Full Valentine's menu was available and we beat the crowds. I had Crab-stuffed flounder which was very flavorful. My Valentine had the chicken which he said was good. Our server Kendra was awesome, as usual. Joe's is right in our neighborhood so we always feel comfortable there. We'll be back soon!
Enjoy Monday night oysters We always request Chuck great waitstaff
I was a bit annoyed the lunch menu was not available on Sundays. Don't recall online them stating that.
Server was very good and friendly.
I ordered the grilled salmon filet and took about half home. Upon eating it tonight the remainder of the fish had many bones in it. This was upsetting as it was supposed to be a filet.
Very accommodating to alterations in the menu items (no potatoes so could substitute carrots for example. Like the GF options too!
We were able to linger for a few hours without feeling rushed!
We sat at the pizza bar. It is very entertaining to watch the food prepared. The food and the service were great
After being seated in a booth as we requested, we had an enjoyable dinner with an excellent waitress!
We are regulars here for a reason (the bread and oil obviously) - but really the food is good and has a lot of gluten free options for me which makes it a happy compromise for me and my husband. We will continue to return again and again -
Billy was our server - super nice, attentive but didn't swarm us every 5 minutes and very personable. He made our dinner even more enjoyable.
We had lunch with my cousins and brought our one year old. Our waitress was super nice and attentive. The food was delicious. Overall a great casual lunch out.
The server (Victoria) was much better than the meal! Usually i love the food here but the fish was quite oily and spinach more heavily seasoned than i expected. And...this is the second time i've been here that the delicious bread was a little on the stale side!! Next time i will send it back, as the usual fresh bread is close to heaven. They failed to note my Open Table reservation when i arrived (and mentioned it). I was informed by Open Table that i hadn't honored my reservation. It's all cleared up now, but annoying.
It is what it is - generally a safe bet for bar/kid/carbo-rich foods that are pretty good. Nice service. Not expensive. Open for lunch. We chose by location.
Since the first time at the Watertown location and I really loved it! I am a huge fan of the complementary bread and cheese/olive oil dip. The seafood fettuccine meal hat has a lot of shrimp , scallops and mushrooms in a delicious cream sauce. Everything was awesome!
We do not live in MA but every time we come into the Boston area, we make Average Joes a priority. Their bread is the best around. I had their Caribbean spicy chicken tenders with blue cheese and they were amazing. My husband got the smoked salmon benedict and that was good as well.
It was a loud night due to the football game being on and lots of families with young children nearby. We still had a great time; just difficult to hear each other at times! Great food and our waiter was helpful and attentive.
Like to go again for my birthday 🎂 and my anniversary also.
Went with a group of 7 coworkers for lunch before the holidays. Not Your Average Joe's in Watertown accommodates large groups with varying diets/food preferences. There was enough room at the table and plenty of food options for people to choose from. The service was friendly and timely. The wait staff was understanding when we were waiting for a member of our group to arrive after he got held up at the office.
This restaurant is fairly vegetarian friendly- there are plenty of options beyond a salad and many options that you can order a veggie version of.
Our waitperson was outstanding - attentive, but not overly so, and took very good care of us!
Excellent post theater meal. A real positive is the discount given to theater goers.
Food was delicious The server was great and made helpful suggestions.
We will definitely return again soon.
