    NYAJ has an extensive GF menu. My daughter did not like the pasta dish, but liked the GF bread brought to the table for her. Will probably try a different item for her next time.

    Extensive gluten free menu and very well trained and knowledgeable staff. They will ask you if you want gluten free bread brought to the table. Never had a problem there. Try the cobb salad with horseradish mustard dressing or the quesadilla appetizer which is big enough to share or eat as an entree. They have Angry Orchard Hard Cider, too, which is a great substitute for gluten-laden beers. Yum!

    Our first time. Pleasant atmosphere and great service. Waitress made note of my son's allergies the minute we mentioned it. I've never felt so worry-free eating out with my son before. The waitress was knowledgeable and if she want sure, she made sure to check for us. I didn't notice any allergic reactions - unfortunately my son's reactions are delayed so they are hard to pick up on. They did have a gf menu (with a kids menu section) and gf bread that was served while we ate the regular bread - I thought the gf bread tasted pretty good. The kid's menu also came with ice cream for dessert. It was gf & ef. Only four stars since it was our first time and we'll just have to keep trying to find out if my son's allergies are ok with it.

    I ate there twice in the span of two days and also got a to go order. First time in three years I've been able to have bread to dip in oil and it was the best! The bun didn't hold up but it was the best tasting and even reheated well in the microwave. After eating a basket of bread I could only eat half my sandwiches. One of the best burgers I've ever had and the bacon so good! The main thing I liked about the chicken was the bread. They had to cut the chicken in half and double it up. Four stars is because I

    Great choice for those needing gf Manager delivers the gf food separately and our waiter was so knowledgable and efficient. They start you with gf bread and dipping oil which was very good. Scallops are perfectly cooked. Finished evening with carrot cake that although waiter said was from outside vendor was Delish and we had no issues. Highly recommend!

    I've been gluten free for about a year but my mom has been gluten free for over a decade so I've been aware and experiencing gluten free for a while, Not Your Average Joe's has, by far, THE best gluten free bread I have ever tasted. All of the food is super fresh and abounds with flavor. They are also VERY accommodating with any food allergy, wheat, dairy, etc. I wish we had one in my home town in Florida, but good thing they don't, my kitchen would fall into disuse.

    Kudos for having a GF menu, but very confusing when I ordered off it and the waitress told me someone might come out to tell me they can't make the meal. Luckily that didn't happen, but stressful and embarrassing when eating with non-GF diners... Don't want to draw extra attention to my dietary limitations. The chicken caprese I had was good, but left me hungry. As a very small woman, that never happens to me.

    The bread with the dipping oil was worth the visit. I had the scallops which were very good but if it wasn't for the bread I would have left hungry as it was a very small meal. The other diners with me weren't as happy with their meals (not gluten free meals). The salmon was dry (which I have had before and I agree) and I was told the beef dish was tough.

    The food was great, plenty of gluten free options, including dessert. The waitstaff was knowledgeable and very considerate about Celiac. They brought out gluten free bread to start with--it was awesome. My young daughter is the one who has Celiac, so she was disappointed not to see gf fries, but they said they could make some for us in a pan. It was very busy, yet the manager came over and let us know he knew we were eating from the gf menu and they would take it seriously and pay special attention to our food preparation. The combination of their attention to gf needs and delicious food means we will definitely be back!

    One of my top two favorite places!! I've never had a bad meal or experience here. Their gluten-free bread is to die for and their gluten-free menu goes on for miles. The management is very concerned with gluten-free customers and usually bring the meals to you. I only got sick once, which was my own fault. I ordered the side of rice which has dairy in it; and I am also lactose intolerant! Whoops. Other than that there is nothing to complain about. Their takeout is just as consistent as their eat-in service. Never had any CC issues, although they sometimes forget to take cheese out of my order! The Waldorf salad and Grilled Chicken Sandwich are my favorites! Highly recommended.

    On 10.3.15, I ordered the Gluten free green machine pesto pasta to go. While my meal was labeled gf and with my first name, within an hour of eating, I was violently ill with obvious gluten poisoning. It became so bad, I passed out and my husband called 911. I was in the ER for hours as they attempted to control my symptoms and rehydrate. The next day, weak but functioning, I called and described my meal. Both the chef and the manager confirmed that the gf pasta should have been a penne style, while what I ate was a curly cavatapi (sp?) full of gluten. They sent me $75 gift card, as if I would ever trust them again. Not to mention that it barely covered the cost of our meal, to say nothing of copays for ER and ambulance ride. No one ever followed up with me, either to discuss how we can put checks and balances in place so this never happens to anyone else. Appalling. Please do not take your life into your hands by eating here.
