Upon arrival, we found that NYAJ featured a brunch buffet, a fact that we did not see on their website. Other menu offerings were minimal with nothing appropriate for breakfast. The food was OK for self-service and a decent value after our $10 coupon was applied. Service was friendly but slow. We would not return.

We went for lunch during the week. Service was a little slow and the food was okay. My crab cakes tasted a little fishy. My mother enjoyed her salmon and the sweet potatoes. The bread and dipping oil were terrific!

We are frequent visitors to this restaurant. This was the first time that multiple items we ordered were not available. And, for each item. we were not told until we placed the order and the waitress came back and said they were out. Very disappointing.

But, we like the restaurant and will return.

Fine consistently good food, at a very reasonable price. Service sometimes spotty as staff turnover seems high. We still go routinely because of the combo of food and value.

Another great meal at Not Your Average Joe’s ... I had the mustard chicken - juicy and delish. my daughter had the turkey avocado sandwich with sweet potato fries - yum. Her friend had the shrimp tacos - ate every bite. Dessert was Oreo cheesecake which was big enough to split among the 3 of us. Our server was fantastic.

We got their early for our reservation and ended up sitting at the bar because we were super hungry but still as nice! Steak frites were really yummy! The fries were not hot but they fixed that super quickly and the blackberry pomegranate margarita was really good! Overall I’d definitely be back.

Seating arrangement is horrible, made a reservation days before and had us waiting for 30 min, made a reservation for a table not a high chair where im sitting a mile away from the person in front of me, take reservations more seriously

Why do you take reservations if you aren’t able to seat people at the time of their reservation? We waited 30 minutes past our reservation time to be seated.

Food order came out a bit wonky but was rectified pretty quickly. Cocktails always seem to be of poor quality unless you order your own rather than off the menu. But the service was good, food options and cleanliness seemed great!

As someone that loves with Celiac disease, it’s extremely important to find a restaurant, and staff that understands that safety of the food and the cooking areas. Kashmere was our waitress and one of the first things she asked was if there were any food allergies. She was super helpful, caring and attentive. This was our first time here and we will definitely be back!!
