We typically don't like chains, but this is the original store. The staff was friendly and the manager came to our table to check on things. The food was great and the servings were over the top. Highly recommend!

Season special is Harvest Mac & Cheese. It is a very good mac & cheese with mushroom, spinach, squash mixed in. $15.99 is a little steep for what you get.

Hello, I am glad to hear that you enjoyed the Harvest Mac & Cheese but it sounds like you got the version without chicken. That should have been less expensive if that was the case. If so, please contact me at guestrelations@nyajoes.com and i'll try to make things right for you. Jimmie More

NYAJ is my favorite place to bring clients & colleagues. Service is premium; the fare tempts your adventurous side and never disappoints. My favorite dish is the Chicken Oscar - not on the menu anymore but they will make it anytime I ask. That alone makes me feel like a VIP.

The first Joe's we ever visited, and have been back many times over the years. Smaller than most, but food is always fine and quality is consistent. Very friendly staff and good for families.

NYAJ's is our favorite restaurant, close to our beach house in Massachusetts. I would say that any time we spend more than two days there, we do go to Joe's! They have a very nice menu that changes regularly, with some local foods and some very interesting and unusual combinations. They are a "chain" but a small one with about... More

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.
