My Mother-In-Law gave us tickets to see a show at the Norwell Community theater recently so I went on Trip Advisor to find near by restaurants to have a pre show dinner.
I settled on Not Your Average Joe's. We had never eaten at this chain before and liked the fact that they took reservations. Things did not start well when we first arrived. Even though we had made reservations prior we were seated at a two top table directly behind the hostess area, and in view of the front door. This was further compounded by the very wobbly table we were left with. I called for the manager as he walked by after seating us and asked to be seated at another table, reporting the table problem to him as the reason. He immediately took us to a nice booth away from the front door. Once seated, things improved rapidly. Cocktails ordered from the bar menu were delicious, mine particularly so, a take on an Old Fashioned with a touch of Maple syrup. Wife started off with their Ahi Tuna Won Tons. According to her "the best she has ever eaten". Perfectly prepared tuna slices on crispy fried Won Tons. I went with the Wedge salad with was very good as well. Not slathered with dressing like many restaurants make the mistake in doing.
I settled on the grilled steak tips for my entree, perfectly prepared medium, that came with simple home made mashed potatoes and sauteed green beans. Only complaint here was green beans could have been cooked longer, they bordered on raw. Wife ordered their 4 cheese pasta dish that she loved, only complaint was it was a tad over baked but she loved it all the same. Dessert was their take on sticky toffee cake with ice cream which we split, delicious. We also ordered our favorite wine with dinner, St. Michele Reisling. Over all, a very good meal. Server was excellent as well, friendly, professional, and knowledgeable about the serving sizes and menu items.
And the restaurant is a 5 minute drive from the theater, right off of Rte 3. Extremely convenient.
