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.

This place is well-managed and very well-staffed. At 7:30 on a very busy Saturday in June we arrived to a substantial line. We had reservations, so I went to the hostess. We were seated within three minutes despite the long line. In fact, I noticed noone had to wait to long, even without reservations. The food was very good (as was the pitcher of Strawberry Rhubarb Sangria). Well-prepared and hot. Our waiter, Chris, was a joy. Delightful and efficient. Even the manager stopped by to inquire about our food. And best of all, this is a very affordable place. Kudos to the management. You can tell the employees are happy and have pride in their work.

We sat on the patio overlooking the waterfront park. We enjoyed martinis and oysters for appetizers before dinner, delicious! We had a wonderful dinner of scallops and salad!
Unfortunately the service was awful! Brought our oysters, no napkins or silverware, had to ask. Never brought spoons or sugar with our after dinner coffee, even though we asked. Waitress walked by our table fives times after she brought our coffee and check and never made eye contact again. Additional training needed.

This attractive Newburyport restaurant has always been a reliable place for a great pizza or a casual dinner--great food, great service. But our last visit was a disappointment. The favorite crab cakes were gone from the menu. The chicken quesadilla did not taste fresh. And the service was a bit slapdash. Maybe it was an off day but it was the first time we were ever let down.

Not Your Average Joe's in Newburyport is super clean and wonderful environment. The staff was very friendly, and the food was hot and incredibly good!! I had the clam chowder and a glass of wine, everything came very quickly, and I had no complaints at all. I look forward to my next visit.

Tired of huge portions of food in the USA , my daughter and I stopped here for lunch. We had a beautiful soup, the cup was a very adequate lunch portion and we shared an appetiser slad which they kindly served on 2 plates. It was perfect.
