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.

“Busy yet reliable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

We have dined here annually while on our pilgrimage to Cape Ann. It is busy however they handle the customers quite agreeably and patiently.
Our server quite affable and present for us, a well done to you. Our meals varied from chicken, to summer flounder special, to my fantastic sirloin tips. All rated high chevrons accompanied by fine iced tea.
The menu has a variety, daily specials add to the intrigue.
The staff is well managed, the food well prepared.

“We always forget about this place, but are happy when we remember it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Every time we are thinking of where to go to dinner, we seem to overlook this restaurant. It is always a last-minute choice, but always one we are glad we made.

My boyfriend loves the meatloaf, and I love their salads and roast chicken. The focaccia they bring out at the beginning of the meal is scrumptious!!!

Definitely go if you're in the area and looking for a friendly, casual place to eat with lots and lots and lots of yummy choices!

“Just Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Sorry Joe! But you are just average. Nothing special or fancy, fare is pricey, service is average. I'd eat here again, but not by plan.

“Excellent service and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

My husband and I always like going to this place with friends. It's lively, the service is good and so is the food. They also have great deals. Definitely get the bread with parmesan and olive oil - just make sure they don't put too much oil in the plate!

“really good food and drinks for every foodie”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

When you first sit down you notice how busy they are and every one of all ages looks happy and that is a great sign. There have a very good selection of draught beers and decent wine selection. They have specials every day and they are very good and reasonable prices with better than average quantity. Got to love the bread with oil, cheese and spices that have a slight hit of hot that testes great, love will end up asking for more bread it is so good. The salad is fresh and dressings are very tasty. Now the main courses are great, but I would like to see "wild caught" items on the menu. Service is team effort so your food is served right away and they check up on you to make sure it is cooked correctly and that you like it. I liked the service very much. Great place to take friends.
