Not Your Average Joe's Acton

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.

"My daughter and I split the quesadillas and then each got a small warm goat cheese salad. Both were very good. We had been here two nights prior as well, and my scallops were amazing (although the portion is small for the price) and her enchiladas were INSANELY good. Our friends loved their chicken piccata and scallops as well. The bread is always delicious and dangerous....."

"I brought my son to NYAJ for his 20th birthday dinner. The waiter was fantastic in being attentive to his dairy and gluten sensitivities. He also recommended a terrific dessert for us --a sorbet arranged beautifully with fruit and powdered sugar. We usually go to NYAJ for for special occasions and it is five minutes from our house. We will continue to patronize the restaurant as I have never had a bad experience in these past several years."

"It was my birthday dinner and for a casual evening it was very nice. Our waiter was very attentive and the food was good. Wine too! We go often and do enjoy ourselves. It is close by and this makes it our choice quite often."

"I love going to NYAJs because the menu is unique and always has something for everyone. The food is consistently good. The seasonal specials are great! The food was not up to par tonight, but that is rare and won't stop me from eating here again."

"The Valentine's weekend featured crab cake AND sole over spinach. I subbed brussels sprouts for the potatoes. DELISH! The red velvet cheese cake was over the top, too. GREAT CHOICE any night - or day. Service is always great, too - attentive w/out being too much."

"Great food but because we were minors our server didnt visit out table once to check in on us. I had to ask another server for a refill of a "bottomless" drink and was then charged twice and didnt realize until leaving the restaurant!!"

"Always a treat to eat at Joe's... manager often comes to make sure all is OK, which it generally is! Food is fresh and not your average {!} The pork shank was delicious, my wife loves the crab cakes (not always available)."

"Eight family members enjoyed the busy restaurant on Valentine's weekend. They had our table ready when we walked in on time, and we were served reasonably promptly considering the crowd. Food was good and the service good."

"Great food and service
We always seem to get bad table location even with reservation
This last time we were next to family with small children and baby
Although we also have kids, they are all 20+. Now. It was Valentine's Day and would have liked to be in a non kid area

"NYAJ Acton is one of our favorite eating places, so we were looking forward to going there to celebrate our anniversary. In making the reservation, I indicated we were celebrating an anniversary. Knowing that it is a busy place, I asked for a table that was not in a high traffic area. Imagine my disappointment when we were placed right next to the door connecting the bar and the dining room, probably the busiest spot in the restaurant. I would have asked to be reseated, but my wife didn't want to make a fuss. I'll have to think long and hard about going there again."

"NYAJ is consistently good: service, food & setting are always dependable. The open hearth is very welcoming on a cold winter night. And I can get a good piece of fish -- my usual order."
