Hopped in here on an impulse with a colleague for lunch. The cheery well-lit ambience immediately put me in a good mood. The servers were polite, friendly and not rushed at all. Had the usual bread with dipping oil & vinegar - standard but good. Had the meatloaf for mains and I must say, it was one of the best... More

Selected as a halfway eating place for distant friends. Expected a generic pub spot. Surprised by their eclectic menu with unusual dishes. I had watermelon and feta salad and a summer squash bolognase. The presentation was excellent, the bolognase was amazing. I hated to put my fork in and ruin it. Both tasted equally good. Ate at the bar and... More

You start with delicious warm breads and a top notch oil and seasoning mixture to dip your bread into. Yum! Ever meal I have had here has been exceptional. There is always something new, creative and scrumptious on the menu. I would recommend making a reservation as this place is always busy.

Extensive menu which means something for everyone but not 100% consistent. With repeat visits I've found the safe bets. Some of the entrees a bit more hit and miss, but salads, burgers, appetizers are always great. Nice, attentive staff and the place is always buzzing. Good, reliable choice for a local place to catch a bite.

Joe's has a regular menu and really great food, but being gluten sensitive, I am so happy to have found this restaurant. They have a great selection that includes fresh baked G-free onion rolls that they use for sandwiches and also serve in place of regular bread with oil for dipping. The service is also really good. Matthew was our... More

Came here before a concert. Waitress knew we were in a rush and steroid up to make dinner enjoyable and timely. Drinks were yummy. Food was excellent. Recommend steak tips and chicken quesadilla. Bread is delicious.

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.
