Not Your Average Joe's Woodbridge
In the past this was our go to but the last couple of visits have been disappointing. I get that COVID is still an issue but other places are handling it better. Service was horrible and it was not busy. Did not offer full menu.
Things have had to change during COVID. There were fewer people seated inside. Waitress & manager were very nice & accommodating. Menu was much smaller & I missed the coconut shrimp & butternut squash flatbread. Portions were smaller (bread & soup....which was $8 for a cup!) The special was Lobster Bisque....overly salted but pretty presentation. Barry's Clam Chowder was also too salty. His Cobb salad looked much smaller than what we have had in the past. The Joe Schmo "flat bread" was good but just a small, round pizza. Hoping that this restaurant can hang on & return to the original experience someday soon.
The manager Juan was VERY rude to me, openly DISCRIMINATED against me based on my health and religion bc I physically cannot wear a mask and I soley stayed outside away from any other people AND never got up from the table once following their discriminatory policy (I made a reservation for outside and explained how I was 100% in compliance with the VA EO, VA human rights act section 2.2 3900, and their own restaurant policy which I looked up before making res). I asked if he read any of those policies, state exec order, or understood he was violating the VAHRA, he refused to acknowledge my question and kept repeating “mam, it’s our policy, I don’t care”. After Juan made a scene, insulted me by placing a dirty mask not in a sealed hygienic wrapping, he finally stopped when I said I would hold it if I had to go to the restroom as my children were very hungry and we would have had a long wait anywhere else at that time, he backed away but never apologized or acknowledged the harassment and discrimination he inflicted on me nor the fact he was ignorant of the state, federal, and company discrimination policies which he violated all of them. Our waiter was incredibly great though and the rest of the experience once Juan left us alone was pleasant SOLEY because of our waiter. We tipped him 30% after he admitted he felt forced to put his health at risk being forced to wear a mask hours on end but that he did it bc his manager Juan explained they all had to or would be fired. Will never return to that restaurant.
If possible would like to have straws provided with all drinks.
Quite pleasant on patio, everything was excellent
Had a wonderful meal and enjoyed eating outside social distanced.
We usually love their bread, but it was hard as rocks! And we sat outside but our table was right next to the door and my chair was banged into about 4 times. Not ideal. The chef did come out and present our dessert to us which was nice though.
The food is always good at Joe’s. And we always get to sit outside, which we enjoy.
Delicious food. We had steak tips and meatloaf and both were delicious.
We love the ahi tuna on cucumber as a starter. We also ordered the chicken enchiladas which are amazing!
Sat outside and service was great.
NYAJs is one of our favorite local restaurants. Service is always good. Food and drinks are great. I highly recommend the apple cider Sangria.
I was very pleased with the health precautions everyone in the restaurant took at all levels. The server asked if we had any allergies. I mentioned I had an allergy to a specific herb but know the menu well and avoid anything with it. The policy is for the manager to double check the order and personally deliver the meal to the person with any allergy. It really wasn’t necessary, but very much appreciated. The food was great. Service was awesome. Very enjoyable experience!
Little pricey but worth the money, everyone in our party of 4 enjoyed their meal.
Food was just okay - not as good as it was a few years ago.
This restaurant is a local favorite of ours and we eat there nearly every week because they have great menu options and excellent service. This time, we had the seasonal dish—pork schnitzel with red cabbage—it was terrific.
We eat at Not Your Average Joe's a lot. Great food.
Bryan (Brian?) was our server and he was FANTASTIC!!! We were celebrating our daughter’s adoption anniversary and he was so cool that our kids want to come back just to see him again lol! He also checked on our table regularly and kept the bread and soda replenished. He made our celebration awesome!
Had a blast and were able to get a great table and time in short notice.
Overall great experience, as usual.
Service was a bit slow, at a time when they shouldn't have been. Our waiter seemed like he was new. So, to be fair, that may have been part of the issues. The alcoholic drinks were overpriced by about 25% for other, comparable dining establishments. About $15/shot. The food was decent, but not a par value for the asking price. I know, I know, "COVID19"... But $23 for a medium sized plate of shrimp scampi, including a whopping (5) small-to-medium-small shrimp, was a bit excessive by any reasonable standard. And $20 for a plate of fries, and a rather anemic looking chunk of fish was the kicker.
I spent $25 (before tip) more at NYAJ than I did at the Firebirds Grille next door, just the night before, and there I had a delicious ribeye, appetizer and an additional whole round of drinks than what I had at NYAJ.
My spouse’s birthday lunch...
As always service was great, food delish. Would recommend.....
We ate here recently for our anniversary and it was absolutely perfect. Our table was outside and socially distant and all workers were wearing masks. The food was delicious and our waitress was very attentive. All in all, a great experience.
Bryan G was our server and he did a great job on his first day. Very attentive taking the experience to the next level.
Our first time to this restaurant. The appetizers of nachos and Philly cheesesteak egg rolls were rather disappointing. The lobster rolls were enjoyable as was the chocolate mousse cake. Server was extremely personable, knowledgeable of menu items and overall outstanding!
Good drinks and food as usual and their outdoor seating area was unique with the ability to have a curtain to pull down in case of bad weather. The service was iffy. We placed our order which included an appetizer and our waitress forgot to ring it in which she did not even realize till we got our main course but at that point we were focused on our main course and did not want our appetizer anymore, she did take it off our bill. After not visiting Not Your Average Joe's for a while because of the pandemic we were disappointed with the service there.
One of our favorite restaurants. The food and drinks are always delicious and servers are friendly and competent!
Bread with dipping oil and spices !
Great service people
The outdoor patio area with fans and lots of tables was a fun place to meet my friend. The food was just ok and the sangria was terrible!!! tasted like punch.
Because of Covid we went at 2:30 pm on a Monday to avoid a crowd. Dined outside on patio. Food and service were excellent.
Our server Olivia was outstanding. Polite, knowledgeable, didn’t ask us a question with our mouths full, not intrusive but attentive. Excellent server.
Always a pleasure to dine here. Food and Service are on point. Lovely waitstaff Grace was a pleasure to have.
Great outdoor atmosphere with delightful drinks,good service and tasty food.
It was a great experience.
As always, NYAJ was awesome. During this time of COVID, it was wonderful to sit outside in a nice atmosphere and enjoy from-scratch meals. The Ahi Tuna Poke Bowl is GREAT! We were a party of four and all enjoyed our meals. The staff is attentive and accommodating. Always a pleasure!
It was great
Good atmosphere, drink and food. They have outdoor seating which is a huge plus.
Courteous , responsive and accommodating staff and service.
Good food, good service. menu has lots of choices. Upscale family style. Lots of opportunities to eat healthy.
Go outdoor dining in a quiet shopping center. Plenty of shade from the sun.
