“Creative Sushi American Style”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

The oversized menu is a little heavy with options but we only go for the sushi. Sushi menu is diverse and they have traditional and very unique options to test on your pallet.

The Coco and Guac rolls happen to be on my favorite list. The spring rolls are also very good. The rolls are generously sized and it appears that the entrees are as well.

Location is easy to find right on Main St. with plenty of street parking up front or a parking lot around the back. Cool and covered outdoor seating too.

The indoor atmosphere sucks... its always very loud and you feel in the way no matter where you sit. The staff isn't over dazzling either, you can't tell who's staff or not cause they wear street clothes and none seem to be very organized. I every time we have been there, we have had two or three servers because there is confusion over table assignments or something. So if you don't care much about service and just order everything at one time, its not bad.

Oversized bar flanks on side of the restaurant. Super busy on Fridays- expect to wait 45 min to an hour but they do have call-ahead seating which helps. We always meet cool customers on each visit which makes for an interesting night. Don't care for their other location in town- Joel's. Sushi was served warm, yuck.

“awesome food, service ???”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

food was super. service was good but the waitress could not answer questions about the food. we also had a waitress that liked to take your order by memory with out writing it down and she mixed up our order, and forgot items. pace yourself if you get appatizers, or the waitress will slap it all on you at the same time.

“Great catfish filet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

I enjoy the catfish filet and sweet potatoe fries best. Good atmosphere and good service each time you go. The only down side is the parking which is hard to find if the mainstreet is busy.

“Try It”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

Love the food. Love the location. Try it and you will not be disappointed. It is a little pricey to take the whole family but my wife and I go whenever we get a chance. Good for both lunch and dinner. We have never been disappointed by anything we ordered.
