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.

There it is. Creative. Casual. Cuisine. If it sounds like your kind of place, then you – like us- are not your average Joe.

“pretty average . . .”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

I used to be a fan of this chain but the dishes seems to be getting heavier and unhealthier. The service is usually friendly and crisp and the have a nice selection of wines and beers. But it's looking pretty average to me these days.

“Better Than Your Average Joe's”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

The atmosphere just before Xmas was very lively and because the restaurant was not full of "regulars" the waitstaff were on their best behavior to explain the menu, recommend favorites, etc.
The meals were ample, well prepared fish and beef dishes that had a little twist to make them better than average. Both my wife and I were pleasantly surprised (our fear was that with so much business, we'd get skimpy meals tossed at us). We would absolutely visit this chain restaurant again and without the apprehension. In fact, we'll look forward to an affordable meal with some culinary flair.

“Consistently Excellent”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

I have dined at another Joe's closer to home several times and it is always very good. This location was no different. The Chicken Mona Lisa Entree Salad was delicious. Service was excellent.

“Definitely not average!”
Reviewed July 11, 2013 via mobile

Above average Joe's! Our dinner was delicious and the service was unparalleled! My husband loved the balsamic salmon plate. He usually doesn't like restaurant rice, he says it has no flavor, but he loved their rice! I had a pizza. The crust was my favorite part!

“I would go again.”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

The decor is very appealing - simple, clean but fun. The service was outstanding! I like to ask for recommendations and the server did me right. I had the tuna (real tuna) salad and would have it again and again. The rest of the group was also happy with their food. The pizza was good as well.
