Food at NYAJ's is always delicious, and this visit was no exception. However, dinner for 3 took 90 minutes - both kitchen and server seemed very slow. Nachos and Paella were both exceptionally good

Taking my 80 year old father to lunch is a challenge but being that we were in Norwell had to go to Not Your Average Joe's for their great food and that to die for bread they serve! Was trying to figure out how to get my dad into the restaurant and park my car when the manager Arthur came... More

I had the shrimp tacos. The flavor was wonderful but they used corn tortillas which fell apart. I couldn't pick the tacos as they crumbed in my hands. Suggest that they use flour tortillas so that you can handle the tacos better or just figure that you are going to eat the tacos with a fork. The sangria was awesome

We really like not your average Joe's but it can sometimes be hit or miss, depending on who's cooking it seems, which is a real disappointment. For someone who's gluten free, they gave so many options. They have amazing gf rolls for your wait, our favorite. They also have good kids menu choices.

The food is what you'd expect from a fine restaurant... i had scallops with rosemary, delectable and perfectly cooked. For an appetizer i shared the flatbread pizza with leeks and bacon, amazingly delicious.

At the last minute, we decided to take the family out for a meal. Am I glad we selected NYAJs! Everything was spectacular. Starting with the service. Our server's name was Mike - he was polite, relaxed, and attentive. He answered our questions like we were the only ones in the restaurant. Bread & oil was delicious - garlic, Parmesan... More

Food is always wonderful, great beer selection, and the seasonal options are always a hit Very friendly servers who have frequently gone above and beyond when my boyfriend and I have visited.

Went out to dinner to celebrate my daughter's birthday and this is the second time here. The first time we went there my sister's pork was raw.
