Description: What does creative casual cuisine mean? Exactly what it says. We"re creative, because we reject the same-old-same-old in favor of tastes that are interesting and unique. We're casual because while our food may be worth getting dressed up for, we invite you to come as you are. We're all about cuisine in the sense that our chefs apply high standards of culinary art. There it is. Creative. Casual. Cuisine. If it sounds like your kind of place, then you – like us- are not your average Joe.

Mostly dependable good food, good service, nice atmosphere. Joe's features monthly specials which are helpful as the regular menu is "well trodden" if you frequent this place. Generally good variety of flavors in their dishes (poblano crema dish, jambalaya, some asian creations, seafood dishes) as well as pizza and burgers. Nice place.

The Acton NYAJ is just off Rt. 2 between our home and Logan Airport, so we end up stopping there at least once every couple of months. It has a casual bistro feel, and everything we've tried from the varied menu is tastefully presented and freshly prepared, so the moderate price premium over the big chain casuals is deserved.

We signed up for their birthday special which gives you a free dinner of anything on the menu and any dessert! So that is worth the trip! Otherwise it is kind of pricey and the service is not always good.

We are regulars at Joes and have never had a meal that we did not enjoy. Service is great and they go out of their way to please the customer. The kitchen will do what they can to prepare individual dishes when requested

My husband and I had a gift certificate for NYAJ's, and decided to give it a try for a late lunch, early dinner on our way to the airport. We were greeted and seated promptly, and then promptly ignored. Several wait staff came by, looked at us and kept on going. We were about to leave when a young waiter,... More

Every time I go here, it always lives up to my expectations. I have never been disappointed with the food or the excellent service. If you have not yet been to this location, you need to check it out--food is excellent, staff is absolutely wonderful, and the manager, Justin, is always visible! I love the Margherita pizza and the Tuscan... More

The fresh menu changes monthly and there are always a variety of good beers on tap. The pizza/salad combination is the most cost-effective way to go, but if you want a full meal, the portions are ample and the combinations are good. They are trying to use as many local sources as possible and it shows. They do take reservations!

Loved the atmosphere. Lively yet able to hold intimate conversation. The food was great and the waitress a real help with the wine selection. Found a new favorite wine.

We have been to the Acton store several times, and each time we have had good food, good service and a good dining experience. Joe's does a very good job of creating and offering good food and new dishes at very good price points. Service is always friendly and prompt, and the front-of-the-house manager, Meredith, is very helpful and accomodating.... More

We have visited NYAJ’s many times when in need of a quick, casual meal, or a drink and a snack at the bar. Not gourmet by any means, but good straightforward food. The wine list is decent and well priced and they make a great cosmo and lemon drop martini and do not charge an arm and a leg for... More
