Lunch was okay, not great. The Cobb salad was mediocre with dry, overcooked chicken; big pieces of lettuce; a small piece of avocado; some crumbled bacon (good); and more. I’ve had much better Cobb salads at other restaurants.

We had a bad experience on Mother’s Day after having two previous excellent dining experiences. My wife ordered from the Gluten Free menu and asked for a salad with Salmon and without any salad dressing. She received the salad with Chicken instead and hestitantly accepted it. The surface of the salad was dry as expected until she dug further into the bowl later in the meal. It had salad dressing which contains vinegrette which my wife is allergic to.
My wife broke out that night from the vinegrette, happy Mother’s Day! Not!
We thought we could trust this Restaraunt and appreciate that you have Gluten Free choices and we will be dining in for a while until we find another restaraunt .

Mother’s Day with wife and son. I think they were a bit stretched. My cheeseburger came without cheese. They took it and dropped a cold piece of cheese on top. Not good and it was overdone. Rest of food was good. We love Joe’s. Hope this was a one-off.

We went for lunch on Mother’s Day. Everything about Not Your Average Joe’s was at best average. The prices were high considering the food was nothing special.

The pizza was over cooked and my eggs Benedict were barely warm., and the crab cake looked like a frozen variety you can get at Cisco. Will not be returning.

We were promptly seated when we arrived at the reservation time. Service was excellent. The food was tasty and plentiful. We all ordered comfort food which really hit the spot. The only complaint would be the noise level. Between having a full house (on a Wednesday!) and the architecture (open ceilings), it was difficult to hold a conversation. Overall, we had a most enjoyable evening.

My wife and I ate oysters for an appetizer. There were two bad ones in two dozen, which were replaced are no charge. Source appears to be sub-par. Our entrees were scallops and seared Ahi; both were excellent. Our daughter ate a grilled vegetable plate, which was very good.

Server was inexperienced and made several errors, which he corrected.

The poor waiter seemed so overwhelmed and didn’t even smile once. They charbroiled my burger, even though I asked for medium well (which they replaced). They seated us in the very, very, very back, even though we had made a reservation well in advance and asked for something closer when we got there. It made us feel like we were being hidden or something... Not a great overall experience, but there were a lot of gluten free options.

Server rushed us during meal. Wasn’t happy about that. He kept clearing everything before we had finished. Annoying! His saving grace is that he brought me guacamole. For some ridiculous reason, they only serve guacamole after 4pm. Stupid!

Disappointing dinner. The server was inattentive to our party of 6. We waited more than 45 minutes to be served dinner and the dishes were disappointing. The potatoes had been on the plate for awhile and mustard crusted chicken had clearly been sitting somewhere and flopped on a plate. We have found this restaurant to be hit or miss and lately, it has been a miss. I don't think we'll be wasting our money there anymore.

Our server Jess was exceptional and the manager on-duty Kellie took good care of my party of 5 for our family get-together. In my experience Jess sets the bar for what a "10" for service on a 1-10 scale in restaurants of this price range. She is consistently awesome every time I've dine here and have the good fortune to have her as our "meal support person".

Everything ordered was delicious and reasonably timely. We tend to do the quiet time of day during the middle of the week (1:30-3:30 p.m.) for such family gatherings. I look forward to trying the Tuesday beer-and-a-burger special. The Wednesday 20% off carryout discount via online ordering can net you some pleasant surprises - check the "XL" menu to see what I mean.

NYAJ's is always good for meeting friends for lunch. Service, drinks and food are always good! Can be a little loud during a crowded lunch. When I complained about the air conditioning (which was cold), management turned it down to a comfortable level.

An excellent lunch. The service was friendly, the food arrived quickly and as ordered. Fresh ingredients, good flavor and a great place to have a business lunch. Place was full but sound acoustics were great and conversation was easy.

NYAJ is one of our favorite restaurants, but the oddest thing happened tonight. I made an Opentable reservation for 12 for a birthday dinner and they sat us at a table for 10. We squeezed in one on the bench and added a chair to the end but it was awkward. Other than that the food was terrific, service was excellent and they treated the birthday girl to their. Peanut butter pie.

Requested a quiet table in the corner and they delivered. Would like to see a greater variety on the menu. What happened to 2/2 sandwich & 1/2 salad for lunch? Absolutely love their bread and oil combo. Waiter seemed a little disinterested & could have checked on us more often.
