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.

“Nice local pub restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

Nice local atmosphere. Staff knew so many of the patrons. Good beer selection with nice simple wine list. Good Caesar salad. Really nice haddock and salmon and the steak was well liked.

“Great food and staff - handle special diet needs well”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

Great evening out with four adults and a six-year old. Staff knew the menu cold, and showed grace and professionalism handling the needs of the gluten-intollerant person in our group. Nice variety of unusual twists on standard comfort food, and good wines to go along with them. Recommend them for any sort of family outing, or couple's casual night out.

“Wife's Birthday Dinner at NYA Joe's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Took my wife to Not Your Average Joe's for dinner. Dinner was great and so was the service. Wife had a unique Beef Stroganoff. It was tender and great. Not at all like she makes at home (which is terrific, by the way). I had chicken enchiladas. We each had leftovers for later. For her birthday, she got her entree and a desert for free. She also had an expresso martini. She liked it better without the chocolate. I had an Over-the-Top margarita. It was the best margarita I have ever had. Wife's desert was a bread pudding. It was good, but heavy and filling. We had a great time, somehow better that usual at NYA Joe's. We always like it here because it is good without being outrageously expensive. Our waitress was Kathleen and she was great and very attentive.

“Good food, good service, good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012 via mobile

A nice varied menu and the food is very good. Easy going friendly service. Value for the dollar is excellent. Chicken enchiladas very good. Salmon with balsamic sauce also very good. One of the better informal dining venues in the Leesburg area.

“Good Food and Even Better Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

We recently had dinner with another couple. As is more and more common these days, everyone had a "special" diet: I was going low carb, my husband was gluten-free, the other couple were vegetarian and omnivore, respectively. Each of our special requests and substitutions were handled with ease - in fact, the staff seemed to enjoy exceeding our expectations! - and the food was delicious! Can't wait to go back!
