Great steak tips, wonderful service

We went for a birthday lunch. The deal used to be a free dinner, including dessert, for the birthday person. Not any more - now it is $15 off. Many of the other Not Your Average Joe's still do the free dinner and dessert for the birthday guest of honor - but Norwell decided to take cut that deal... read more

We were running a little late for dinner and someone suggested not your average Joes. We were seated pretty quickly and the waitress suggested trying the watermelon sangria which was very tasty. The rest was down hill. I ordered the standard burger which is on a regular bun with lettuce, tomato, bacon and cheese but I wanted it substituted for... More

Driving up to Boston from the Cape we stopped in for a quick lunch and was very impressed with this establishment. The staff was very friendly and efficient. The place had a very nice vibe to it and in active lunch crowd. I had the spicy salami pizza and it was very good. My wife had a salad with goat... More

I have been here several times now with my husband and/or friends. It is by far one of the best restaurants in the area - and there are many restaurants around here. The service is always great and the food has been regularly excellent. I've had the jambalaya twice and it is to die for! I highly recommend this restaurant!

We have been here a dozen times. Prompt service, easy reservations on opentable, consistent food, great Tuna tartar on wontons, lamb sliders, waldorf salad, spicy calamari, etc. Drink specials, and a bottle of wine and two entrees on Winesday for $50 , so good value to boot!

We've been to this location many times, most recently late Monday afternoons for happy hour. Some of the food is really good, and some is just average. What is outstanding about NYAJ's is their customer service. We seldom ever have an issue, but if you have a problem, no matter how small, they will fix it! We usually go to... More

I ate here two nights in a row. The first night it was great and the meatloaf was excellent. The second time the food was also very good but the service was not as good as the first night.

After thinking about trying it for a while I had the opportunity to have an early dinner at Not Your Average Joe's in Norwell, MA. I was extremely happy with the menu items, specials, drink options, atmosphere and service. The food is excellent! I will most definitely dine there again!

We visit this restaurant on a fairly regular basis. We appreciate the creative flair of a changing menu, often celebrating a particular season and embracing local products. The regular menu features a number of "tried and true" offerings that you can count on... But, the "specials" menu offers the occasional culinary adventures. On this occasion we enjoyed Mozambique Chicken, Garlic... More

The hotel staff recommended this restaurant and boy were they right. Located right down the street from our hotel and located across from a lake you get a pretty picture while you have some great tasting food. Our server was so friendly and helped us make a great selection for dinner and dessert. Great for the whole family.
