GOOD FOOD AND SERVICE AND COMFORTABLE SEATING OUTSIDE.

HOPE THAT YOU CAN GET HEAT LAMPS AS THEY WOULD BE HELPFUL.

TIMES ARE DIFFICULT BUT YOUR STAFF REMAIN CHEERFUL.

Very good food and service, Drought beers priced little high! Outdoor seating needs heaters in the Fall.

Even with a reservation we waited almost 40 minutes (no easy feat with a 2 yr old in a mask). The food was cold and not tasty. The price was outrageous for the poor quality food. We will not be returning.

Good value for the money. Nice outdoor space, very good food and decent prices. Only concern was how crowded it was and fact that we had to wait despite having a reservation

They overbooked and we waited more than 15 minutes to be seated for our reservation. It then took more than 45 minutes to get our appetizers. And when it arrived, the food was mediocre at best.

Made advance reservations through Open Table app. Received a confirmation. Arrived early and waited 45 minutes for a table while other groups of our size were seated prior to our seating. They were definitely not prepared for staffing the busy evening therefore making getting adequate service a problem. We were asked if we wanted bread. It came out with our food 45 min later and it was cold. My food was forgotten and took another 5 minutes. They only refilled our drinks once the entire time we were there. Food was ok not great.

Had 6:00pm outdoor reservation. Was seated 1/2 hour later In the bocce court area rather than in the tent. Kids playing in grassy area were noisy and soocer, tennis and footballs flew into where we were seated. At 7:00 we got our drinks and mine was wrong sangria. It was windy, dark and cool. Asked if anything opened in tent and said no. Requested our food to go and left!

Service was slow and we didn't get our drinks within an hour of sitting down, and I felt sick after my gluten-free salad. I don't think they're doing the proper precautions for people with celiac disease.

Despite being outside on a cool fall day, we kept warm by the fire pit that had a good flame to keep us warm.
I would definitely go back and sit outside.

We enjoy Joe’s often. Tried them during Covid19 restrictions and felt they did as well as could be expected. Food was very good as usual. Service was slow as was to be expected. Will continue to go there however.

The hostess greeted us -we were trying to decide which seat would accommodate us nicely in the sun and she seemed impatient with our decision making
We enjoyed our salad and our chicken dish even though they came out cooler than they should have
Some of the tables seemed a little noisier because we were in a small area even though we were separated for safety
The waitress needed reminding to bring us water twice and need a reminding to bring us the lemons we asked for
Also wait staff came to our table 3 times to bring us food that didn’t belong to us and we had to tell them they were at the wrong table
We had to wait for the bill by asking two times
The waitress never came by to see how we enjoyed our meal and we would’ve mentioned it needed to be hotter
Not as satisfactory and enjoyable as we would have preferred

We always enjoy dining at Not Your Average Joe's and it's nice especially at this time to have the option of outdoor dining. They always use quality products and the food is delicious. We're already looking forward to our next visit.

Food was great!! The bread for the table with dipping sauce was amazing!! Food came out super fast. We sat outside near the fire which was cool but a little windy. Would definitely try again.

It was good - for a pandemic meal out - we ate outside … some of the food was oddly seasoned so it wasn’t eaten. Prices have gone up …

We enjoyed our date night out at Not your Average Joe’s. The hostess was a little flustered when we got there but once we were seated the service was great. Our food came out very quickly and the waitress was handling a lot of tables. We will definitely be back soon.

Our first time out since March and the outdoor patio felt very safe. Staff were conscientious about wearing masks, and the tables were placed more than 6 ft apart. We would definitely go back.

Covid precautions were very good and I felt comfortable. I had one of the best lobster rolls ever! Lots of lobster with Chopped celery and a moderate amount of mayonnaise, on a deliciously buttered grilled roll. Highly recommend it!

Mid-day service, in my experience here, is always slow but the food and atmosphere help make up for it.
