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.

We were in Newburyport during invitation night for Christmas shopping and even at 9:30 pm places were saying 1 hour waits for tables. I remember Joe's and suggested we give them a try. We got a table right away and some pretty attentive services for a busy night. Joe's is in a great location inside an old Firehouse with a... More

My wife and I have been to Joe's a whole bunch of times -- indoor, outdoor, winter and summer. It's always a good choice as the drinks are good, the menu is creative and ... the food is always good and tasty.

We had two dishes that were not like anything we'd typically eat, and that's what we were hoping to do. It was great, decor needs help, we found ourselves criticising the layout of the place,.

This was our second experience with "Not Your Average Joe's" as we had had dinner at the Walthrop location a few weeks earlier. The Newburyport location was every bit as good.

The food was awesome! We shared the flatbread with butternut squash,caramalized brussel sprouts, and cheese with a balsamic drizzle. Incredible. I would never have put those together and I am so glad I had the opportunity to eat that combination! I had the grilled cheese and tomato basil soup.
