I've been here for lunch several times and once for dinner. On the most recent visit I was served a salad with chicken that was raw inside. This is why I won't go back. There is nothing remarkable about the service, burgers or fries. They need some quality control.

As a floridian and seafood lover, I know my Seafood! I ordered a drink and it was very good. The waiter was friendly, fast and well versed with the Menu; however, the fish I ordered was pretty bland. Cooked to perfection but lacking flavor. I would recommend blackening seasoning or a lemon butter. Would try again, but probably a different... More

East coast chain restaurant. This one overlooks pond of other side of busy street. Pretty sunsets over pond. We both had salads for dinner. Thai salad with grilled chicken breast. It was tasty. Interesting drink choices

I really wanted the NYAJ's lobster roll before they took it off the menu so as today was the last day, I called to order one to go (1:30pm) Irene informed me that they had just run out but the chef was waiting for more lobster meat and the next batch should be ready in about 45". OK. I called... More

The Customer Service at NYAJ in Norwell Ma is one of the best if not the best my wife & I have ever received in a restaurant. Our server Jackie was unbelievable, she was friendly, personable,helpful, and fun to talk to. She made some suggestions about our meal choices that really helped us out.

There were twelve of us. I had made a reservation the week before but it was not in their computer. They recovered nicely and we were seated in ten minutes. Everyone was happy with their selections for dinner and the service was impeccable.

This was a really pleasant experience. I made reservations the day before requesting a gluten free menu and that is what I got. A separate menu for my son who is on a gluten free diet. The staff was really friendly, prices were reasonable and service was exceptional. I must say they were not busy, probably 2/3 full. The only... More

I have been to this restaurant at least 3 times in the last 6 months and it has been well worth it. I have to say that every time I have had some sort of wait to be seated but that just tells me that others feel it's worth the wait as well. The service is exemplary, food is consistently... More

Looking for a place with a somewhat healthy/calorie conscious menu, we landed on NYAJ's for a pre-theater dinner. Firstly, you are able to make a reservation on a BUSY weekend night in advance -- thumbs up for that. Next, if you are going to the wonderful Company theater right down the road, you get 15% off your check. Just show... More
