On several trips we have had sub par food. For example, Caesar salad comes without Parmesan cheese and is a bowl filled with just lettuce for 4.99. Chicken quesadillas were lukewarm at best, and fries are soggy and burnt. Kids pizza is good.

I never expect everything to be perfect at any meal, but it's how the staff at the Waltham not your average Joe's respond when there is an issue that set them apart. We've eaten there about 5 times since we've moved here and the food quality has always been spot on. The cocktails and very high quality and creative. On... More

This is a chain of restaurants offering a casual environment and delicious comfort food. Prices are reasonable. I've never had a bad meal here.

We didn't have a reservation and they made room, the kids food came quickly so that they were satisfied and left the adults with a relaxed time to enjoy the great food and a couple of much deserved drinks at the end of the week and the staff were wonderful. This was a great place for a family meal which... More

We both got the specials which waitress recommended. Mine was the meatloaf and she got the mustard crusted chicken. Both were very good but big enough we could have just split one of them.

We have found all our visits to Not Your Average Joe's very good. This night, June 3, 2016 we came for the seafood. Elaine and I had the crusted haddock and the others had the scallops. No complaints on the food. Service was excellent as our waitress was there when we needed anything. Will be going again shortly.

A nice setting in a nice shopping center, but wasn't terribly impressed overall. It is definitely a bit pricey for what it is. Given we were there at lunch, went with an easy option of a burger. It was fair at best, nothing special. They messed up one order in our party and had to remake it. The manager brought... More

Not your average? Hmm.. Given the prices, had hoped for more. To be fair, maybe the night we went was busier than usual, but service was not that great, and neither was the food. What good are unlimited refills if no one stops by to see if you need anything or see how your food is cooked? Not sure we'll... More

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.
