We never would have found this gem. Passed by many times and didn't even look. Best food for miles. You have to experience this fine cuisine. Do not judge a restaurant by its cover!

You need to eat here...period. Chef Dave is a culinary genius. The menu is eclectic, serving Thai, Indonesian, etc. EVERYTHING I have had on the menu I have LOVED!!! Beef Rendang, Seafood Lasagna, and Haddock with Eggplant Sauce are some of my personal favorites. Dave and his wife are very personable, and do a great job of making you feel... More

Three of the four of us who ate at Curry Creek Cafe had Dave's Seafood Pasta. Simply excellent. We didn't have reservations and were immediately seated. It's not a huge restaurant, but very quint and friendly

We went here with family and were really impressed with the eclectic menu, which features Thai, American and even some Italian dishes, many with fresh seafood. The food was delicious and the chef and staff very friendly. And we even were greeted by a cute heron in the parking lot!

This cozy little restaurant is easy to pass by but don't be fooled by the outside. We went for Indian food but the menu actually has Indonesian fare. I had a curry grouper cheeks which was good. I chose to have it mild and it was not spicy. My husband must have told me a dozen times how much he... More
