The menu is very broad and will please any group of patrons. I am a fan of their Haddock selection and sometimes their Specials of the day can be quite awsome. They do average food well. Not your average joes also does some great wine pairing dinners and support many local events.

The veggie burger was awful. They only served a few fries on the side.
The Cobb Salad was small and uninspiring. A boring salad for $12! Seems like they are cutting back on costs because everything, including the veggies burger, was small.
And $15 for macaroni & cheese?
I have eaten at Joe's before and liked it but this time I concluded it just isn't worth it for the price.

Pros: nonw

Cons: Worst Veggie Burger & Cobb Salad

Ate there for lunch on 3/20/10. Mediteranean chicken and clam chowder were not bad, waitress was terrible. So much so that we didn't leave a tip and had to write a comment on the card. She just short of ignored our repeated requests for the check, rolled her eyes when my asked for water and did not bother to ask how the meal was.

This is unusual for this chain as at other locations service has been fine and usually a manager asks how everything is going Maybe this was a rogue waitress or there was no manager on duty. I literally had to walk to the bar to pay the bill because the waitress was so dreadful. Will be giving this chain a break.

The food is good here with variety, a little bit for for everyone. Its a good family restuarant. If you dont get in at the right time, there can be a wait.

i went to Not Your Average Joe's for lunch on a Friday afternoon with a group of 10 people, was seated immediately, promptly served the most delicious bread with an amazing garlic-cheese dipping sauce. i could have just had that and left satisfied.

our waiter was knowledgeable and attentive. it was most of our first time at the restaurant and he answered all of our many questions about the different (there are tons of them!) entrees, salads, pizzas, specials. i had one of the specials: cranberry teriyaki chicken with asparagus and butternut squash. the butternut squash was incredible. so good i went home that weekend and attempted to replicated it, unsuccessully however. the spices they used were delicious and i would definitely order it again. i have a huge sweet tooth, and all of their desserts come in these mini-martini glasses. it's the perfect amount to indulge your sweet tooth without feeling sluggish when you walk out.

after our bill came, which was unexpectedly reasonably priced (less than $20/person including appetizers, entrees, desserts, tax and tip!), the hostess came to our table, asked who had been there before, and gave all of the "newbees" a $5 coupon for our next visit. this place is incredible and i will most definitely be going back. in addition, the decor is very modern and seems like an upscale, chic restaurant that belongs in a city, but luckily doesn't have the prices or stuffy atmosphere that so many times goes along with that.

thank you Not Your Average Joe's for a fantastic dining experience!

Not Your Average Joes is a rapidly expanding restaurant chain in the greater Boston area. Joe's offers a fun and festive dining area and a moderately price. Joe's is known for its wonderfully colorful martinis and delicious focaccia bread that is served with every meal. Furthermore, the menu is filled with classic American dishes from pastas to hamburgers, however, presented beautifully and seasoned to perfection. Their desserts are amazing aswell!

This place should be called "Not your Avaerge WAIT". Large parties wait a really long time for poor seating service. We've tried several times. Nothing terribly special about the menu either.

It can be crowded so use call ahead seating. There is usually room in the bar area if you have to wait. Once seated, the waitresses are always prompt and friendly. The bread & olive oil w/cheese & spices is out of this world (yes, very fattening & loaded w/ carbs). That said, they will custom make your dish to suit your diet. I love the salads, the spring rolls, and pizza, but would caution that steak is not their strong point. Great ambience, though it can be a bit loud

The atmosphere, service, and food are fantastic. I've been there several times and the food has always been perfect. They cater to any diet and try their best to make you happy. I have to add that the music is great too.

We arrived to a hostess area crowded by four hosts/ hostesses- complete overkill for a Monday night at a medium sized restaurant. The Caesar salad was the worst I've ever had. My pasta was overcooked and my boyfriend's steak tips were accompanied by incredibly dry and tasteless mashed potatoes. It took over 15 minutes for them to go back to the kitchen and cut a piece of key lime pie which was pretty pathetic considering the over abundance of staff. The decor of Not Your Average Joe's may look appealing from the street, however I urge you to reconsider your restaurant choice and perhaps try Stellina's (located right next to Joe's) or one of the other wonderful restaurants on Main Street.

Editorial from

The Scene
Each Joe's location handles a steady flow of hungry families and casual couples tired of national chains' bland cuisine and soulless atmospheres. While most nights bring standing-room-only crowds, waiting for a table…
