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.

Our waiter, Ben, made us feel like we had come to his home for a meal. He gave great advice on the menu, and he presented their great focaccia bread and dip as if he had made it himself. The bread is worth the visit. Also try the pumpkin beer with the brown sugar /cinnamon lip on the glass.

Another dining choice I made because of comments! We had really great service first thing! Then they brought in-house made Foccacia bread that they served with oil & Parmesan cheese for dipping. What a treat! Absolutely delicious!!! My husband had their clam chowder & couldn't stop talking about how much seafood it contained! I had their delicious tomato basil soup.... More

Recently had a nice dinner. Near the boardwalk and water. Very busy and a bit noisy on a Saturday night. The haddock and the skewered scallops were very good. Be sure to make reservations.

We stopped by for dinner one night a couple weeks ago. Was looking for someplace nice to eat outside. We got to be seated right by the road, good for people watching. Service was good. Ordered a couple glasses of wine and my husband had a couple beers. The drinks were good, my wine glass looked dirty though. Not terrible... More

Went out last night to try this place. It had a good deal of reviews so we figured why not. Maybe it was just our poor timing but at 8:30 at night the patio was packed with three families all with toddlers running around like a playground. We ordered a bottle of wine, drank a glass (hoping someone would ask... More
