Dinner was actually surprisingly good. Salads were large tasty fresh and added chicken or steak was a meal. Not expensive. Bar service available. Good choice

Waitress Rebecca was very attentive. That was the high light of the visit! Food was served warm not hot. Pork schnitzel was dry & bitter needed something sweet to off set the bitterness. There was no creamy mustard sauce basically dry and bitter. Mustard-crusted chicken...More

I am never disappointed here. I always get the mustard encrusted chicken and I love it. The green beans are always yummy and done to perfection. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Enjoyed our $1 oysters and shrimp, goat cheese salad, mustard chicken w/mashed and a veg... Centine wine by the glass (wine by the glass a little pricey for this type of place... better by the bottle). Service was very good.

While this is a chain restaurant the fresh seasonal menus and craft beer selections make it feel like a hometown find.

I enjoy NYAJ's because it doesn't feel like all of the other chain restaurants trying to add decent salad and GF "healthier" options. It already has this down with wonderful salad options, which are both filling and delicious. Super crunch with grilled chicken is a...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.
