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.

“Something for everyone”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2012

This place has a perfect, comprehensive menu on which anyone can find something they enjoy. I, for one, am obsessed with their waldorf salad. I especially like that I have the option to order a half portion, because I do not eat large portions. They have yummy beers on tap as well!

“Loved It”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

We stopped to eat in Newburyport on our way home from Maine. We asked a local for a restaurant recommendation and she suggested Not Your Average Joe's. So glad she did. We were seated right away outside on the front patio. The service was good and the food was excellent. We loved it!

“Definitely not Average”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

Had a great meal at Not Your Average Joe's. It was close to closing but the staff never rushed our meal. The burgers and salads were great. Service was attentive. It was just a nice relaxing meal outdoors on a beautiful summers night. We enjoyed it so much that we went back one more time for dinner before we left Newbury.

“As the name implies it was Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

Both of us ordered hamburgers and caesar salad. We asked for lettuce, tomato and mayo on them. There was very little lettuce. The burger was very good. The salad was poor to say the least. The server asked a couple of times if we needed anything else and she was attentive. The bread they served with the oil dip was delicious. Was not crazy about the hamburger roll. Would not hurry back.

“Two choices”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

North Beverly, Newburyport and Methuen. Been to them all. Nothing special but they are all similar. Had two friend in North Beverly as guests. Eight in Newby and just four in Methuen. Good men selection that covers the bases. But, nothing knocks my socks off like the bread and dipping oil, especially with hotpepper flakes.
