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.

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...

We stopped here with a family of six - four adults and two teenagers,and unfortunately, the meals served were just average. The service was a bit slow on a Sunday evening, but the staff was pleasant and started us off quickly with drinks and bread with a tasty dipping oil. Our meals all came out together, and were hot.

Definitely a couple steps above your average chain restaurants (TGI Fridays, Applebee's, etc.). The restaurant is a 30 minute drive away from us, so we only go on special occasions or when in the area. I love the way they infuse different flavors with their food. Nice bar and wine selection. They use local farmers crops when in season. And... More

Ate here with the wife and friends. We were seated right away and the waitress was very friendly and very attentive to our needs. The menu had a lot of selections and as the name of the place implies some you would not find on your average menu. They also had a gluten free menu for my wife who has... More

I went to Joe's twice. The first time I sat at the bar. I am a single woman and the female bartender all but ignored me. She paid more attention to the couples at the bar. My dinner order was incomplete and the bartender never asked me if I would like another beer as I had finished my first one.... More

I have eaten at Joe's a few times now, each time I was pleased with the service and with the food. The staff is well trained and does a great job to make sure the customer is well taken care of during the visit. Look forward to going back again.

Booked dinner for 8 in early afternoon for 6:30 PM. No problem getting a table reserved. Table promptly ready at 6:30pm. Service was excellent and the food was uniquely different. Excellent. One of our group did not like what she ordered and the waitress replaced the meal with a different entre and provided extra desserts because of the inconvenience. This... More
