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.

I really liked this restaurant. It seemed to have all of the normal appetizers and entrees that I'm used to seeing but with a different twist. They infused different flavors in their sauces and dishes that really added a different element I'd never had before. I really enjoyed the flavors. I'd recommend a trip to this restaurant and will go... More

We have visited approx. 10 times. Cumulative review. First up: The ciabatta bread and dipping oil are the best we have encountered. Be careful not to fill up on these. Cuisine is constantly changing and is innovative and delicious. They have some consistent menu items like their mustard chicken and steak tips (both excellent). And the steak is cooked properly!...

NYAJ is a bright and cheerful dining experience with a diverse menu, excellent food quality, and reasonable prices. Try their 2-for $40 deal. Two complete meals with a bottle of wine. Excellent! Great for couples, the family, or the office gang.

Really enjoy this place. Waitstaff is personable and attentive, hostesses always remember a familiar face, and Management routinely checks with diners to make sure they are satisfied. The dishes (mainly chicken, beef, fish, pizza, and salads) are creatively prepared, but not too adventurous, and are very good. Salads are very fresh and delicious. Non-alcoholic drinks are as creative and delicious... More

I have now eaten at Not Your Average Joe's three times and have to say it is my favorite local restaurant! The food is consistently great. The servers are wonderful. I have to eat gluten free due to celiac disease and they provide lots of choices. When the manager stopped by our table I thanked him for the gluten-free options.... More

We have eaten at Joe's several times, it used to be better. Service was OK, our server was very nice and attentive. Ordered a martini with a twist, got one with a lime. My wife had chicken picata , said it just OK, I had the Caribbean Buffalo wins, they were pretty good. Dinner was about $50.00 for two. I... More

We have eaten here several times. The service is usually very good. The food, in my opinion, is hit or miss. We love the Herb Crushed Haddock. The scallops are good but the portion is pretty small. The steak frites are tough, per my experience. Pizza is pretty good. It's a bit pricy and the ambience is noisy.

This restaurant is a big step up from most of the big chains, like the Applebee's it replaced and Chilis's, etc.). The menu items are interesting, there was an extensive listing of beers on tap. The waitress was friendly, the atmosphere was fun, the food was very good. We're going back soon.

I typically don't like going to chain restaurants, but we just can't stop going back! The menu changes just frequently enough-we find a favorite, have a chance to order it again, and then get to try something new. The bread/oil are delicious and there's a decent variety of beers on tap. Very friendly service. They're usually busy on weekends, but... More

Not Your Average Joe's in Westborough, MA is one of many at which I have eaten. And, I just keep coming back for more. Why, you ask?
