Description: What does creative casual cuisine mean? Exactly what it says. We"re creative, because we reject the same-old-same-old in favor of tastes that are interesting and unique. We're casual because while our food may be worth getting dressed up for, we invite you to come as you are. We're all about cuisine in the sense that our chefs apply high standards of culinary art. There it is. Creative. Casual. Cuisine. If it sounds like your kind of place, then you – like us- are not your average Joe.

Visited the area for our honeymoon and were looking for dinner one night. After some internet searching this is what we decided on. The food was great and the service was adequate. The menu was interesting but I already knew what I wanted from looking at the online menu. Great place to eat and would recommend to anyone.

Very warm welcome and initially very good service. Drinks and appetiser orders taken efficiently and nice touch with the bread, oil and Parmesan. Starters were good quality, well presented, with the chowder being our favourite. Orders taken for the main events and drinks refilled without any asking, again a nice touch. The waitress was very pleasant and friendly but just... More

We have friends who live north and south of the area and we like to get together for mini reunions every few months. We picked this central location a couple of years ago and are always pleased that we did. The staff is so accommodating and the food is delicious. Particularly enjoyed the summer specials. We choose a mid afternoon... More

The complimentary in- house baked focaccia served with parmesan and garlic olive oil is to die for. Peppy servers, generous portions. Fun place to dine.

This was a great restaurant - very cool inside, great service, the food was awesome & it wasn't over priced. They also give you bread & oil as an appetizer (the oil tasted like a parmesan garlic oil). It was great!!

The scallops were delicious, and the gluten free carrot cake was awesome. The waitress was very accommodating and patient, even when the place was getting busy. The only drawback is that it is very loud in there for some reason.

I really wanted to like this place. There were so many things. The funny name. The very broad menu. The interesting beers. The very charming staff. But in the end it all boils down to execution. It didn't fulfill the high expectations that I had. I found the coconut shrimp appetizer to be heavy on the batter. Too much flour... More

Great pizza - white pizza with awesome crust and some pistacios on it. Good selection of draft beers and a fun drink with muddled strawberries and champagne was great. Servers were really nice.
