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.

There’s a Burger King down the road. Next time I’ll go there. A lot less expensive and just as mediocre.

Great family restaurant. Don’t reserve a high top seat because they are in the bar and it is first come first serve and you will end up waiting.
Food and drinks are great!!!

This was our first time eating at a restaurant since the pandemic. We ate outside. The view of Accord Pond across the street was lovely at sunset. The waitress was helpful, and the food was delicious.

Steak and cheese egg roll was great. The Burger and fries were disgusting. Fries were clearly old and being reheated. Burger was raw. Very disappointed.

Have always been a fan of not your Average Joe’s but this Norwell location seems to be a little off base. Have had trouble with takeout here before but thought that in-person might be better. Server received multiple tables but didn’t even acknowledge us until much later. Other tables who came after us had their food well before us. Just was not up to par. Definitely committed to patronizing other businesses during the Covid time, unfortunately this won’t be one.

Handicapped spaces on opposite side of restaurant from outdoor dining area, while food pickup area is right outside door. Had to walk through restaurant to get to patio and restaurant felt under ventilated, smelled musty. Was seated at far end of patio, because all nearer table were reserved. Waitress worked hard to go all the way around a fence in the middle of patio to get to us. However she couldn't overcome the other below-average aspects of the experience, including food where my burger overcooked and fries soggy. Drink, classic margarita, was good and got me through.

We had reservations for the patio but when we arrived, it was cold and rainy and even though the area had a canopy, we requested a table inside. We were immediately accommodated with a table with good social distancing. Our waitress was pleasant and informed us it was her first night back after 3 months because of the Covid. We ordered drinks and they arrived and she brought a lovely basket of bread. We ordered 2 Caesar salads for the four of us to share. We waited and waited and waited and no Caesar Salad but our waitress arrived with our main course. She had forgotten to put in the salad order. We decided to forget the salads because our entree had arrived. I had requested no fries but asked for a vegetable in place of them. My dinner which was a lobster roll arrived with fries and spinach and no coleslaw which was supposed to come with the meal.. We decided not to say anything and passed the fries around the table. My husband and his friend ordered the Chicken Parmesan and liked it and my friend ordered the salmon and liked it. The manager came over and apologized for the forgotten salads and sent one free of charge and also said dessert was on the house. My lobster roll was fine but I have had many better. The bill came and the Caesar Salad was on the bill and I reminded our waitress that we were not to be charged and she immediately apologized and returned with a proper bill. We enjoyed our desserts which were not on the bill. All in all, we felt the manager was very gracious and certainly went out of his way to make us happy after the mix up. We will certainly go back again but I would not order the lobster roll.

My only complaint was that the landscaping leaves a lot to be desired and wasn’t very appealing. There were weeds growing in the patio every where!! No flowers or plants. Not appealing at all.

We had a reservation for inside seating. The tables were clearly spaced apart and we felt at ease, and it was obvious rules were being observed by everyone. The staff could not have been more courteous and attentive. The food was great. Thank you for a very enjoyable lunch.

Very good but will not return until cash is acceptable! Way too much info out there when using credit card for every little thing! Will not help create a cashless society! Your every move is traced and with identity theft it’s much too risky!

Prices are WAY too high for quality/portion size. I got what I assume was the dinner portion Super Crunch Salad on Sunday night. NYAJoe's salads used to be exciting, creative and huge. This salad was just Meh and I truly felt like there was 4oz or less of chunks of chicken. I ate the whole salad and was still hungry..and it was $18. It's just not worth it to come here anymore for an overpriced, too small entree or entree salad. The limited menu is also a bummer. One of my favorite things about the menu was it's size and how many good options were available. Joe's just isn't the same as it used to be.

We felt completely rushed and were seated at our table for less than 45 minutes - that is very rushed considering we ordered an appetizer, two entrees, dessert, and two drinks each. The waitress did not even introduce herself. Every table around us was served bread except us. We had to ask for water, we had to ask to have dessert, and our plates were taken away before we were done with them. The server just handed us a check and walked away at the end. This was our first time going out since quarantine. As two essential service employees ourselves, we understand minimal contact with others, but this felt super rude and dismissive. I NEVER write negative reviews (again, I work in service too) but this experience has been sitting the wrong way with me for two days now. We still tipped well, because we understand how difficult it can be working during these times, but I can confidently say that I’ve received better customer service at the Quincy Dunkin than I did here. I am a huge fan of NYAJ, and this was my first (and last) time visiting the Norwell location. Westwood is worth the drive.

We hadn’t been to NYAJ in a few years. Menu wasn’t really the best for selection and food was okay. Service was good but I don’t think we’ll be back.
