We live across the street and go to Joe's at least once a month. We would love to hate it because we don't usually like chains BUT each time we go we're never disappointed. It's really good food, good portions, great service, good drinks, etc. If there's not a table, there's usually room at the bar although I always make... More

Why wait for a table? The bartenders will make you feel right at home. Food is good here especially the salads and flatbreads, and prices are reasonable. Plenty of parking at public lot behind the restaurant.

Since moving to Watertown, this is our favorite go-to restaurant! Everything on the menu is delicious; the bread is to die for, and the monthly specials are great. You can't go wrong here! The staff is always accommodating, and it's a great place for families, especially ones with young children. There's enough of a din that it blocks out any... More

Went here before seeing Assassins at the New Rep. While the food was tasty, some of our order was not delivered as ordered...we believe that was a language issue with our server. The food itself was quite tasty and delivered hot. We will go back again.

Visiting friends in Boston we had the most wicked awesome lunch at NYAJ's. The pumpkin spice sangria was quite tasty. Greg B was a marketing wizard. Not only did he skillfully promote the tasty menu, he highlighted all the various specials throughout the week and we couldn't wait to come back. Great venue, wonderful service and tasty food. What more... More

I've been going to Joe's for years. The menu gets more creative and interesting all the time, and the old standards (good burgers) still stand up. The tuna sushi with wontons is one of my favorite appetizers and the bread is yummy!!

I've been to this location a handful of times, and other locations a TON of times. Not Your Average Joes always delivers (not literally, but, you get it). Really tasty, consistent food. This location in particular has a really nice atmosphere.
