My waitress made sure to confirm I wanted GF fir Celiacs
I wish I had a gluten tester like the other reviewer, because after eating here I ended up becoming VERY ILL for a long time and the only thing I could think of was they must've fed me straight up gluten. Yes, the way they behave in the front of house make you feel safe, and the gf selection is huge, but whatever is actually going on in the kitchen is NOT safe for Celiacs in my opinion. I don't think I've ever been sicker in my entire life like I was after eating here. I struggled with writing this review, but I feel like reviews like this are important because places like this are why I never eat out anymore.
First restaurant to offer warm gf rolls along with the the regular rolls!! They are delicious and soft and you can ask for a separate oil dip! The gf menu has lots of variety and the food is always delicious!
I'm so sorry but I'm going to have to give this rating. The menu looked great; huge gf. The food looked good. The staff was amazing. Chef and 2 managers talked to us. First dish came back with gluten after testing with Nima. 5/6 of us had already eaten. Tested next 5 dishes. All had some gluten (one was high). Tested this later with EZ gluten strips. Same result. May be from airborne flour. They are trying very hard and want to do this right but something went wrong. 4 of us had small reactions the next day but were minimum bc we only ate one thing. Could have been worse.
Never had a problem when eating here. Awesome gluten free rolls and you're not heavily restricted to what you can eat. Will certainly be a loyal customer! Worth the 40 minute drive for me.
Very friendly and attuned to needs of those with Celiac. Great GF bread and dedicated GF menu. Will come back!
Come here all the time without any reaction. They seem to really have a good understanding of Celiac and cross contamination.
Just moved here a week ago and LOVE this place! Delicious rolls (you can purchase a pack if you want), food and great service. They are extremely careful.
So, I did get glutened here, but I really don't think it is something that normally happens. That is why I am still giving them a 4 star. Ordered the Ahi Tuna Wontons. Someone in the kitchen made a mistake and they put regular soy sauce on it. They actually caught the error, but not in time. The manager came out asked me how sensitive I was. I have celiac, so, pretty sensitive. He was very upset that it happened. Our whole meal was free and he took my number to call me the next day to see how I was. We are always taking chances when we go to any restaurant. I really appreciated their honesty and they really could have not said anything to me at all, butnthey made a point to come and talk to me and I was really disappointed, but I could tell they were all very disappointed too. Even the server was so apologetic. I would still recommend this place, but if you get any Asian flavored food, make sure it is GF soy sauce. Side note: The GF onion bread and oil dip is amazing.
Dedicated gluten free food area Very safe for celiac
We were visiting the area and found the this great restaurant. They have gluten free onion roll bread and an olive oil/Parmesan dip that is awesome. I would come back just for the bread/dip. I ordered the Burger and green beans. Burger was great the green beans were fair. I also ordered a GF Carrot Cake to take home. Friends that did not eat GF eat the Mustard Crusted Chicken and said it was great. Will definitely come back if ever in the area.
The food was great! I am gluten sensitive and got a plate of Mac and cheese with grilled chicken which was terrific and my brother who has celiac had a burger with a side of Mac and cheese. The only reason I'm giving a 4/5 is because the service was pretty slow considering it was later and their were very few others in the restaurant. 👍👍
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.
GF menu was offered as we were being seated without us even asking. We had awesome warm rolls with Parmesan dipping oil. Waiter checked to see if fries were GF but were not as he said there was no dedicated fryer. Burger was really good with garlic mashed potatoes. Lots of options here! Will be returning
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.
Warm gluten free biscuit-like bread with a separate plate of olive oil to enjoy before my meal for free. So good! I'm gluten intolerant and did not get sick.
Amazing menu so many meals to choose from. Chef came to the table to reassure me that my meal was going to be made to perfection.
Very knowledgeable about gluten free. Super friendly and lots of options. Chef came out to speak to me personally before cooking my order. Will be back for sure!
My husband and I eat there 2 to 3 times a month. Never had a problem. Seasonal menus often have gf options.
My favorite gluten free restaurant by far! They have lots of options.... many more than most restaurants! They are very careful and attentive. The gluten free rolls are awesome and most of the time they bring them to me without me even asking! I see that they recently added gf carrot cake to the menu, too!
We were in town for a hockey tournament and found this place using the find me gluten free app. There was quite a bit on the GF menu. The roll while waiting for our meal as well as dinner was delicious!
Not Your Average Joe's was definitely a good experience. I was so excited to get rolls before my meal like everyone else always does. I've never been to a restaurant that offer gluten free rolls before a meal. That alone was enough for five stars, because of the extra thought that went into the planning of the gf menu. Besides the rolls, my meal was excellent. I got the turkey blt. The turkey was cooked perfectly and the bread was delicious. the best part was that I did not get glutened!
They have a great GF menu. They serve GF rolls that are awesome. I have been here 3 times and never had a problem. All of the servers are educated well. This is my favorite restaurant!
The food here is great! Lots of options on the gluten free menu and the bread was really good too
This is my favorite gluten free place to eat! My dinner was delicious and the gluten free bread was an awesome extra along with my own oil
Great turkey club!
I really liked that there was gluten free bread for before my meal and my server knew to offer me my own dipping sauce without my asking.
The staff is great. Have a dedicated gluten free menu. Have gluten free bread and will give you your own dipping sauce. I’ve never gotten sick eating here.
Went on Monday for lunch with 6 people including my 5 year old celiac child. Was impressed with the breadth of the GF menu. She was thrilled to have some GF bread. Unfortunately, while she was eating the GF macaroni, I realized there was a curly noodle in the middle of her GF penne. The kitchen said they think a noodle from a regular mac and cheese just accidentally slipped into her dish but I don't see how that is possible if any sort of basic precautions are being made. She woke up in the middle of the night with cramps. We will likely try another location of this chain again due to the broad options but I was pretty disappointed in their safe food handling.
It's a relief to go here, though you pay a bit more, that's no surprise. Every been several times and have always been served by the chef or very particularly by a lead server. More recently they offer a roll, which I appreciate. Pasta is great, salmon was good (a bit of an odd combo - squash, pesto, salmon), burger (yum), tried their carrot cake - they didn't let this thaw properly, it was 'ok' - a bit to sugary like some GF stuff tends to be. I don't recall getting sick, but I did have a rough morning after my most recent visit, can't be sure it was NYAJ's. I'll definitely be back there.
Twice now, I’ve been served gluten at this location. First, a burger with a gluten roll (make sure your roll has small pieces of onion, which is the GF version) and second I suspect was the pasta in the pasta al for no. Either the pasta wasn’t GF or it was cooked in the standard pasta water. They have GF options but I think they can be sloppy on the follow through. Days of suffering result!
I have never seen such a large gluten free menu offered at a restaurant before. You just have to ask for the separate menu. They even offered gluten free dinner rolls that were soft and delicious! Everyone at my table actually liked them better then the regular rolls. Waitress even gave me my separate dipping oil without me having to ask, didn't have to ask for the gf rolls either! I had a burger on a gf bun (same bread as dinner rolls) with a side of mashed potatoes. Did not get sick at all. Our waitress was awesome and was very knowledgeable. When she brought food to the table that was not gluten free (for the others with me) she made sure I knew that it was not gf. It's the little things like this that makes eating out for someone like me enjoyable again!! Thank you! Very impressed!!
Not only is the gluten free menu amazing but the servers are ALL knowledgeable about celiac and extremely helpful. We love eating here and have never had a bad experience!
staff is very knowledgeable! they're gf food is amazing! I always feel safe and full after! no anxiety or belly issues! love nyaj's! they're the best!
Great selection of food! Staff was extremely attentive! The bread and dip to start the meal! Amazing!
Good food with no issues
The gluten free menu was extensive. The waitress was very attentive of my food restriction which was very reassuring. I had a gf roll, the haddock with mashed potatoes and peas, everything was delicious and didn't get sick. I was really impressed. Would definitely come here again when I visit the Cape!
Our waitress Ashley was so attentive and nice. Totally ask for her! The GF rolls were amazing! No joke amazing! And the GF menu had a lot of options. I got the chicken caprese it was phenomenal. There was so much of it I took half of it home for dinner!
Every time we eat here they manage to screw up our order. I know it's hard to be picky but if you're going to bother with it, at least eat there rather than get takeout; you may end up waiting a half an hour but at least they can fix their mistake if they make one (they will). Whether or not the new dish is any good is a crap shoot.
My son ordered chicken quesadilla and the salmon meal. He loved them both. Staff friendly and very attentive to all allergic people.
Great gluten free menu and bread! Courteous service too. Good for groups and outdoor seating.
Excellent food and service!! New favorite place!
SO YUMMY! Best bread for the table I've ever had. They even made me a gluten free dairy free lobster roll!!!!!!!!!! Also the sorbet was amazing. However I did feel kinda iffy the next day so I am not sure if this restaurant was the culprit or not (thats why it lost its 5th star)
Gluten free experience started at the door where they asked if we wanted a gluten free menu unprompted. The menu is extensive and full of "normal" items. The wait staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. The gluten free bread is phenomenal.
The bread and dip are fantastic!! The entrees are also delicious.
