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.

NYA Joe's is a 'go to' restaurant for our family. If we feel like going out for dinner on a Saturday night (or a Tuesday night), we enjoy NYA Joes for its fresh ingredients and interesting recipes. While I also enjoy the other restaurants in this same plaza, NYA Joe's has the best food for the price. Capital grill has... More

This restaurant is simply too noisy - never saw so many TV screens in a restaurant this size before. Absolutely not for me. One can barely talk in there - food is just okay - cannot even remember what I had to eat - it was that forgettable. My suggestion - don't stop - just move on.

Went on a Saturday night with a party of six. Had reservations and was seated promptly at 5pm. We ordered a variety of items and they were very accommodating to two in the party with severe tree nut allergies. Some ordered off the specials and the schnitzel was excellent with great beers to go along with it. Chix finger, Chix... More

We met friends there for lunch not knowing what to expect. Excellent menu for starters. Wonderful bread. Lunch arrived with every one choosing something different and we were all pleased with our selections( something different). Our server was great and we were not rushed dispite how busy they were. We thought it was a good bang for our buck. AND... More

I was visiting my family in the Boston burbs and we tried NYAJ in Burlington, MA. I made a reservation and my party of 6 slid right in, regardless of the 40 min wait for 2. Our waiter was very attentive and on top of his service with drinks, bread, and taking our orders. We waited quite a bit for... More

Ate here for lunch a few weeks ago. Good casual restaurant but having eaten at several of them, I would recommend this place and the chain overall. It is a tad noisy but for lunch who cares. Server was very good and refilled ice tea when glass was empty. Had the burgers, fish, special, and goat salad topped with raw... More

Unexpected bar dinner due to traffic. The first available was added bar stools at the end of the bar - not made for seating. Asked to move at the first open seat, the bar staff were amenable and helpful. The cosmo was passable, warm bread with oil - too much grated cheese on the oil - gloppy. The chicken was... More

Visited the area for our honeymoon and were looking for dinner one night. After some internet searching this is what we decided on. The food was great and the service was adequate. The menu was interesting but I already knew what I wanted from looking at the online menu. Great place to eat and would recommend to anyone.
