Great Place for Families with Young Children

The main reason I want to review NYAJ is due to how hard it is to find a place that serves good food and can accommodate young children without disrupting other guests. To be clear, when I say good food, I'm not talking about four-star dining, I simply mean something significantly better than a... read more

We are regular visitors to NYAJ's during visits to Cape Ann, twice this month. I appreciate the automated reservation system. I appreciate the cheerful greeting by gracious staff, especially after a trans-Atlantic flight. The food is inconsistent. My first visit saw us with exceptional scallops.Somewhat higher price but seafood is an economic puzzle so quite acceptable. This past Sunday our... More

We used to frequent this location quite a bit, but in my opinion, it has gone way downhill. The last couple times my meal has been average at best. The meatloaf was always a favorite of mine, but they changed it a ways back. I tried it again last night and it was dry. the old one had a great... More

We are regulars here. The food is always fresh and the combinations are unusual and rich. Service is excellent. Suppertime is often very busy, so reservations are recommended.

It's really a fun place. The menu has something for everyone. The crab cakes are awesome, a must try! They serve a delicious foccaccia bread with a house dip for the table which is excellent. Just a great place!

I like this place. Pretty busy on a Friday and Saturday night but you can always get take out. They have awesome bread and their tomato basil soup is to die for. I would really recommend that. The salads are great along with their drinks and pizza. I would say entrees are a bit on the expensive side for that... More

I have been to several Not Your Average Joe's over the years and this was my least favorite. It has no atmosphere and the booths were so close together that my friend and I were both pinned into it. She sat one side and I the other and neither of us could move. Okay, we are overweight but not huge!... More

I was here at Joe's with my 13 year old daughter and her friend for lunch. One could just have the bread and oil dip and forget having the lunch it's that good. You have to really try hard to have just 'one' or there is no room for lunch :-) Joe's makes a really good black bean and rice... More

I have many friends that love the place, and I have eaten there a few times before, and it was very good, but this time was, Average Joe's. Food was fine, service avarage, but only have burgers, so partly my fault. Just seemed their attention to detail was not there that day. One suggestion to the managers, is to tell... More

We were in Beverly for a play and decided to eat here. We were seated immediately at noon in a booth as requested. The food was consistent with that at our regular Joe's In Arlington, MA. We did find the service slower though equally friendly as at Arlington. Menu was familiar and I had my regular haddock. It was just... More
