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.

We live just around the corner from NYAJ's, and go there regularly… the food is always very good, and you can never have enough of the bread and olive oil dip they bring. Seriously, my family goes through two of them every time we visit. Early in our visits there, the service was 50/50…. however, in the past year, management... More

Went for lunch with family. They start you off with some absolutely delicious homemade bread with a wonderful cheese/oil/spices to dip. Kids had Mac & cheese and the chicken strips which were large portions. We had the southwestern burger which was good but a better bun would be good as the burger is big. Daughter-in-law had the roast beef sandwich... More

I'd probably rate this closer to 3.5 but that's not an option. It's got a solid menu and decent bar. They serve free bread, which is delicious. If someone suggests to go here I won't complain.

This is one of our favorite casual eating spots! The food id always good, the service outstanding and a great variety of choice on the menu. It can get really busy, so plan for a wait if you are going at a traditional busy time!

Most dishes are excellent & attractively presented. Noise level is high. Outside patio is great on beautiful day night. Booths inside better than tables.Onion rolls outstanding.

I've been going to Joe's with a friend on occasion for several years (almost since they opened in this area), and I've been seeing that their variety of specials and presentation of mainstay dishes has been improving over their already great quality. Had the sirloin tips tonight, and they've definitely done these right with the new balsamic glaze and mashed... More

This place has never disappointed us. They serve delicious meals and the service is always good. It can be a bit noisy when it is busy inside. We sat out on the sidewalk and enjoyed the nice weather.
