It is easy to tell how well-liked the restaurant is because we had a half hour wait on a week night. But it was well worth the wait. The decor is attractive, the restaurant is well arranged, the service was excellent, prices were comparable to other casual restaurants in the area. I had Chinese lettuce wraps which were excellent and... More

Stop by Not Your Average Joe's for great food and great service. Ask for Carolina, she is fantastic! Try the appetizers or have a few drinks in the bar.

Went early so there was no wait. Had grilled salmon which was excellent. My son had the steak tips which were done to perfection. The best part though is their fresh bread and dipping oil. Yum! If you don't want to wait, go early...although it is worth it if you have to wait.

The Norwell NYAJs is located at busy Queen Anne's Corner in Hingham and looks across the road at Accord Pond, a nice scenic view. The area is known for very busy restaurants and long wait times, but NYAJs takes reservations -- highly recommended. We have always been seated immediately on our reservation time regardless of the length of the line... More

This is a fairly nice family restaurant with reasonably priced food and, in our case, excellent service. There is a lot of variety on the menu, and the food is prepared as requested.

Went to lunch on a Saturday. Suggestions from our waitress Nicole, were spot on. Turkey tips were great! We did have an issue with chicken that was over-cooked, but Nicole was right there to remedy the situation. Very please with food and service!

Not Your Average Joe's is a chain restaurant. I have only visited two of their restaurants and what I have found is a very consistent presentation and meal. The menu has a nice variety for everyone's taste. The ambiance is also very nice considering how wide open the restaurant is. the one time I had an issue with a dish... More

Have been to Norwell location of NYAJ several times. Food is consistently good. Menu changes with the seasons and also the restaurant will present new and creative monthly dinner, drink and appetizer specials, The chef can take a simple meatloaf and turn it into a beautifully plated dish. Never a problem with service. On my most recent visit I took... More
