This restaurant is great. Fast service and super food. Mid range as per prices but every time we have been here, it is packed solid. The pasta is great. The seafood is wonderful. Just a nice perennial favourite of ours. 'nuff said. Polite staff.

I have visited NYAJ many times- the food is always so delicious and the prices are reasonable. However, I was vegan for a little while and when my husband and I last visited, the waitress told me that my only option was a plate of assorted cooked veggies. Nothing on the menu could be made vegan except the salads. The... More

Thanks for the review on Trip Advisor. Have you already dined with us for your Birthday? Not sure if you looked on line and decided not to or you already have. The discount is $15 not 15% and you can still use both together. We would love to have you back to celebrate. Please call any manager and we will... More

Not Your Average Joe's is our family favorite restaurant. They have a great menu, generous portions, really good bread and oil, and the service is always spot-on. We have never been disappointed at NYAJ. They also have Winesday Wednesday, which is great.

Our family of 5 ate here on a Friday evening and had a great experience. We were impressed with the gluten-free menu for our son with celiac disease. The server was knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating. GF rolls were delicious and appreciated. All of our food was delicious!

We've been here before with our family (2 adults, 3 teenagers) and we loved it again. The bread and olive oil dip served up front is truly delicious. The steak wedge salad was (still) fantastic. We also loved their salads. Service is very good. Nice atmosphere and if the weather is good, you can even enjoy a table outside on... More

I had a business lunch here. The servers were attentive enough, but knew when to let us talk and have our meeting. The menu has lots of great choices, so there's something for everyone. Location is accessed easily off of Rt. 128/95
