I'm in Massachusetts visiting my family. My daughter took the day off from work for a day of shopping. After all our hard work we needed some hard earned lunch, of course. Our waiter James, was especially attentive & did not disappoint. My daughter had one of their specialty salads (not sure what it was) & I had the herbed... More

Hi There - Sounds like nothing could have been better after a hard day of shopping! I am going to make sure that James' General Manager recognizes him for doing a great job. If you have time before you head home, be sure to stop in and see us again. Best, Jimmie More

Atmosphere is nothing special. Right side of the room is basically a sports bar, but very restrained in noise level. The left side is a combo of tables and booths and has never felt crowded. Both the service and the food are impeccable! While I'm not picky about _what_ I eat, I _am_ picky about preparation and presentation at above... More

Been to Joe's countless times with different couples, and they are won over easily at Joes. Atmosphere is cozy,waitstaff is friendly and attentive,but not intrusive, Outside seating available during nice weather. Portions and drinks are good. Menu changes with the seasons, and the inside is decorated during some holidays for flair. Handicapped accessible with ample parking.

Good place to gather with friends, order drinks, and a bunch of appetizers to share! I love that they have "seasonal" appetizers in addition to their regular appetizer menu so you can try something fresh and creative. But you can never go wrong with their cheese steak egg rolls, or the Thai chicken wraps!! So good!

My friends and I decided to go to lunch and picked Not Your Average Joe's because we had not been there before. We started with a pitcher of sangria, which was the special , and it was delicious. It was so good that we had the second pitcher. I had chicken piccata. It was so good. The chicken was cooked... More

Hi there, I am glad that you all enjoyed your food and that delicious sangria. You will have to return for Sangria Sunday sometime - always 4 or 5 different flavors to choose from. See you then, I hope! Jimmie More

Hopped in here on an impulse with a colleague for lunch. The cheery well-lit ambience immediately put me in a good mood. The servers were polite, friendly and not rushed at all. Had the usual bread with dipping oil & vinegar - standard but good. Had the meatloaf for mains and I must say, it was one of the best... More

Selected as a halfway eating place for distant friends. Expected a generic pub spot. Surprised by their eclectic menu with unusual dishes. I had watermelon and feta salad and a summer squash bolognase. The presentation was excellent, the bolognase was amazing. I hated to put my fork in and ruin it. Both tasted equally good. Ate at the bar and... More

You start with delicious warm breads and a top notch oil and seasoning mixture to dip your bread into. Yum! Ever meal I have had here has been exceptional. There is always something new, creative and scrumptious on the menu. I would recommend making a reservation as this place is always busy.

Extensive menu which means something for everyone but not 100% consistent. With repeat visits I've found the safe bets. Some of the entrees a bit more hit and miss, but salads, burgers, appetizers are always great. Nice, attentive staff and the place is always buzzing. Good, reliable choice for a local place to catch a bite.

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.
