After leaving a less-than-desirable review of this restaurant, a former favorite of ours, I decided to return.We've always enjoyed ourselves at Joe's and I wanted to confirm that it was as outstanding as always. We ordered the buffalo chicken pizza and the lemon chicken with capers over fettuccine (piccata). Both orders were excellent. My husband likes spicy food, and the... More

My husband and I are new to Beverly, MA - but we are well acquainted with the "Not Your Average Joe's" chain. Compared to others we have visited - this one is very good - but not 5 star worthy. One of its signature offerings is there bread with a fabulous cheesy olive oil...unfortunately...the bread we received was not as... More

We hadn't been to this restaurant in a long time yet knew we could always count on the crab cakes. However, when we arrived last week on a Sunday, we learned that crab cakes had been taken off the menu. When we expressed disappointment, the server said, "Everybody loved the crab cakes and still asks for them." Well if that's... More

Hello Sharon, Thank you for your review. I am sorry that you were disappointed by some of your food choices and also by the fact that we no longer have the crabcakes. We do change our menu 4 times a year and for variety and things like the crabcakes can always make a reappearance. I am going to contact you... More

NYAJ has a good menu, good food, and friendly staff. My family really likes to go there for dinner. The only problem is that lately they have gotten a bit pricey. Especially for drinks (just basic beer and wine), they're getting quite expensive.

Not Your Average Joe's is an extremely reliable chain, with excellent offerings at a reasonable price. A particular bonus s the warm sourdough bread that precedes each meal, served with a delightful olive oil/Parmesan/ red pepper dip. We ate here regularly during our visit and were never disappointed. Signature cocktails rock!

NYAJ in No. Beverly was always a go-to place for my friend and me, before she moved away. During her recent visit we went again for lunch and I must say, the service level has declined a bit.

We love to go to this restuarant mid week when the wait is manageable. Although I think they do take reservations... it gets really busy on a weekend. The food is always good quality, with healthy choices... and the bread and dipping oil are to die for. We often go after playing golf and my husband LOVES their mango iced... More

There it is. Creative. Casual. Cuisine. If it sounds like your kind of place, then you – like us- are not your average Joe.
