We visited on a Thursday night. We got right in but I would recommend reservations as the restaurant was small. The waiter was very helpful and explained the menu as I have not tried Creole food before. We picked out several plates and shared them. Everything was delicious. We had a great time trying new foods. This wouldn't be a... More

Food was really terrific. Service was a little odd but didn't detract from dinner. Gumbo was nice and smokey. Pork shank very good steak good. The roasted chicken was the real standout. Beignets out of this world. I do think they need to read their own letter to customers in the menu. Describing each dish as sharable is a bit... More

This used to be a gallery. It's now the latest hot spot in Old Town for amazing top of the line food and an incredibly creative cocktail list and full beer/wine menus.

We were walking about Old Town on a beautiful Indian Summer Sunday, and noticed that the Creole bar was open. We strolled in, and relaxed by sitting in some of the wing back leather chairs they have. The friendly barmaid took our drink order, and proudly told us of all the changes and plans in store for the place. We... More

Mr. Busby was a genius! Whenever I visit this gallery, I am pulled into art in a way that I never thought I could appreciate! It's so quaint and cozy and when I have attended functions where there is food and music flowing, I NEVER feel like I'm anywhere near Lansing, MI - has the feel of New York or... More

This has been a Lansing landmark for years. Whether you are at the Creole for music or art, it's a great place to kick back and visit. The atmosphere is classic Oldtown with brick walls and hardwood floors. Great management, very friendly. Def a place to check out.

Went to an event there on December 1st. I ended up buying some really great cards from Lynn Hershberger who is a knitter. She has some work at the Michigan State University's Children's Garden which is a must see. A tree covered in scarves and whimsical bells and yarn creations. Oh so delightful.
