Went there with two friends and was pleasantly surprised how comfortable the atmosphere was and very creative appetizers and on top of that a very friendly bartender. Will return for sure.

I have to admit that I ordered a burger med well. That was my mistake. It was way over cooked. Lesson learned. The bread and olive oil prior to dinner was great. Service was very good. Basically your average pub food

Heavy portions. I enjoy going after a long workout. Good gluten free menu for my boyfriend. Enjoy the soups and salads

Not Your Average Joe's also doesn't have your average gluten-free options. They have a dedicated, two-page menu with burgers, baked fish, salads and more to choose from. The prices aren't gouging either, which makes it a true oasis for celiacs.
