Do NOT recommend for teams or large groups with individual checks. Food was average but the staff did a terrible job managing the large group with individual family checks. We were the last family to get our check and ended up being required to pay for all the random items that were not put on the correct family bill. No... More

We've been going to Not Your Average Joe's in Gaithersburg literally since the day it opened. We impatiently waited as the restaurant was under construction, and then we met the mother of the opening manager when we introduced ourselves to each other while sitting at a summer concert. On our first visit, we introduced ourselves to the manager as "the... More

Been here 3 times in past 3 months, each time at suggestion of friends we were meeting. Next time, it will be our suggestion. We like the menu and the wait staff is very helpful and friendly with their suggestions. Separate bar which seems to always be buzzing with people. On cold days, the restaurant is a bit chilly, so...

Food cooked on site. Loud music, farmed fish and no grass fed meat. But nicer than average American restaurant for the price point.

We stopped by to grab a bite to eat and watch the football games. We ordered from the seasonal menu. The spaghetti squash bolognese was outstanding. It is served with a light sauce of mushrooms and tomatoes. Of course the bread is always warm, served with a nice blended oil with cheese...delicious. My husband ordered his usual mustard encrusted chicken... More

We went for the first time for dinner and were impressed by layout, menu and concept. However what we witnessed was a very untrained & unprofessional team. The server came to the table three times to either ask us again or update us on size or type of beverage ordered, my wine was served 6oz I ordered 9oz & my... More

Hello Jennifer, Thank you for your review. We change our menu 4 times a year and we always try to bring back guest favorites. Sometimes we can make your past favorites even if they are no longer available. Just ask your server and if the chef has the ingredients, he is happy to make them for you. Best, Jimmie More

Go firstly for the food, but the drinks can be exceptionally winning. When you arrive, you can immediately ask your wait person for your drink order to be served. Ask if they have a mixed drink “cocktail” special and the price. Any “by the glass” red or white wine from Argentina, Australia or Italy is sure to be a low... More
