Description: 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.

NYAJ is one of my favorite chain restaurants! From the service, to the food, to the drinks it's all consistently good every time I visit. I had dinner here last weekend and everything was still up to par. My favorites here are the ahi tuna wonton appetizer and the berry me in bubbles cocktail. For my entrée this time I... More

Husband and I took advantage of American Express Small Business Saturday and our last stop was Not Your Average Joe's. We have been before, but this was our first experience at the bar. Service was quick and attentive, even though the bar was crowded. We ordered two seasonal brews and two appetizers. My salad was excellent. My husband's chowder, very... More

I really like Not Your Average Joes. I've been there many times since they moved into Westborough. Their food it imaginative. Their bread basket is to die for (especially with the olive oil and red pepper flakes for dipping). The service has always been attentive. So why did I give it such a low rating? The last two times I've... More

I'm not one for chain restaurants,but we had a NYAJ in our mall and we enjoy it. We were in town to visit Skyzone and had an hour to kill. First, the carpet was filthy. Our waitress was very nice and pretty efficient. My husband and I both ordered the French onion soup- disgusting! It was the color of dishwater.... More

We used to eat at this restaurant quite often and enjoyed the food and service. Management was on the ball and would come by your table to see if you were satisfied. We drifted away looking for a new menu and a change. When we stopped here for dinner recently we were really disappointed. First the service was awful. Our... More

This is a very discrete eatery, yet with the typical accommodations of bar and several dining areas. The menu is vast and interesting, prices are adequate and the service was wonderful. Great salads too! The only disappointment was the dessert: I had a carrot cake with more frosting than actual cake.

This is one restaurant that I can always count on for a GREAT gluten free meal! When I ask for the GF menu, I don't even have to ask for a GF roll - it's always brought right to the table with the DELICIOUS oil with cheese, garlic and pepper flakes! Yum! There's not another restaurant out there with as... More

Our last visit to NYAJ was the best. They had a "preview" fall menu which provided multiple options for our Paleo (gluten free and more) diet. We had the hangar steak (perfectly done, tasty and tender), and the pork tenderloin (also perfectly done and tender). The accompaniments were great, drinks were superb. It was a busy Saturday night but the... More

Six of us were in the area on a business trip and arrived shortly after 6pm on a Monday night. We were seated immediately and service was prompt, friendly and professional. Meals arrived together, were hot and cooked as requested. The menu is extensive with something for everyone including entree size salads, vegetarian options, burgers and sandwiches as well as...
