Good food & drinks

The food here is a little above casual dining & a little below fine dining. Dinner here will run you about $60-75 per couple(all inclusive)The crowd is definitely a younger more rowdy bunch(not trashy mind you)Drinks are popular so this place is a good watering hole.

Last time wife and I were here was about 4 years ago. Good experiance then. Whent back again last month and had great appetizers and some drinks. When back a couple of weeks later and had one of the best thin crust, buffalo chicken pizzas ever tasted. Wait staff is great and attentive. What more can I say?

We have had mixed results with this restaurant on past visits, but this time loved it! It was a snowy Sunday night and not much else was open, so we went in.

Ordered appetizers that took an age to be served and we're not great..were seated next to a loud party that didnot help..the resturant was close to closing so the poor service could not have been from the crowd..has been one of my favorite places to eat until that night

We were Christmas shopping and decided to stop and have a bite to eat in Burlington, so we stopped at Not Your Average Joe's. We ate in the bar because it was so busy. The waitress/bartender was happy and efficient. My calamari was delicious and my husband's chicken blt was terrific. A great relaxing time.
