Our annual pilgrimage to NYAJ in Beverly, received the usual congenial greeting and prompt seating. The server arrived promptly and orders were taken. Cocktails were well prepared. The menu has a variety of choices, the daily specials were appreciated. This writer's scallops were quite tasty with an accompanying sauce of tasty creative order. My wife's baked haddock was excellent. Guest... More

From the hostess, to the drinks to the waitstaff and finally to the food...It's not average...It feels like a sports bar, but it's not, The quality of the food, the presentation and the friendliness of the staff are certainly not average...Try the meatloaf..it's very good, as is most of the items on the menu.

We brought my twin grandsons for a Mother's Day dinner. One of them misbehaving to such a degree that my daughter had to leave without finishing her meal. The wait staff was so kind and trying to help by even offering to take the trouble one for a walk so we could have a peaceful meal. The food was, as... More

Consistently very good, excellent value, and great selection. Always enjoy a free birthday entree with dessert. This is our family favorite. Highly recommend salmon, salads, and peanut butter thing for dessert

Our waitress was hilarious and right on! We told her we were up visiting and we didn't want to be rushed and she was phenomenal!!! We had... More

My friends and I stopped going to NYAJ's after having the most horrible lunch ever. I'll tell you about one of the dishes. It was French onion soup. I was the first to taste it and it had a weird tang to it. My two friends hadn't mentioned anything after tasting theirs, so I thought it was me. Wrong! The... More

Good place to stop if you don’t want to make dinner or traveling through and hungry. Food is OK but not memorable. Tends to be a little more salty than it should be. Burgers are very good. Better choice than other Chain food in the area.

I keep trying as I loved the restaurant chain until recently. This disaster was seared scallop with pesto. It was 1 scallop sliced into 3 thin price on a fancy skewer. The scallop was great but maybe an ounce of scallop. Also had corn and bean mixture and watercress. Price was $10.99 and maybe it cost $1.00 on a bad... More

As a local resident I visit this restaurant quite often. The food is great and the beer is cold. Fresh bread starts you off, and a nice selection of main dishes follows. Can't go wrong here! By the way, get on the e-mail list for occasional specials and a bargain on your birthday.
