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.

“Not Your Average Restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

Not Your Average Joe's (NYAJ) has delicious and innovative cuisine. The core menu is varied and appeals to all ages and tastes. In addition, their seasonal menus offer fresh, seasonal, creative cuisine that never fails to please. What really makes NYAJ stand out is the attitude and the atmosphe at NYAJ. They go out of their way to make their customers feel special and at home in their establishment. We have eaten lunch and dinner frequently at NJAJ, and we have booked work luncheons for up to 15 people. The Management offers solutions and suggestions that have made these work luncheons a huge success. When you join NYAJ, they send you a coupon yearly for a free dinner and dessert on your birthday consisting of whatever you want on the menu. We celebrated our anniversary at NYAJ this week and the staff could not have been sweeter. Jeremy, our wonderful server brought us the most delicious chocolate lava cake with ice cream for dessert. Across the entire dinner plate, the words Happy Anniversary were written in chocolate sauce. NYAJ is NOT your average restaurant. It is a comfortable, friendly neighborhood restaurant that manages to excel at great food and atmosphere. Nothing average about that!

“Scrumptious Food, Slow Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012 via mobile

Food was fresh, tasty and we enjoyed both beers and some of the restaurants unique non-alcoholic concoctions. Well worth your time to enjoy appetizers & entree. Prices we're a bit high for being a laid back establishment but you get what you pay for and since the food was delicious we've been return customers. It may be our bad timing in the afternoons & evenings, but the service remains slow. Fine if the kitchen needs time to prepare fresh plates but plan on having to ask for drink refills cause once the wait staff takes your order you won't see them for awhile!!

“Creme Brulee Cheesecake...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

Wow... what a finish to a meal at this place... freshly made mounds of whipped cream with bright mint garnesh and the heavenly creation placed upon a lovely drizzel of caramel...

This place is true to it's name... the food is fresh, unique, flawless - the service is quick, pleasant and the decor is hip and funky, yet clean. The bar has great drink - very unique and the bread basket is the deal maker.

My only complaint is that there are no liners in the ladies restroom... one can hope!
