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.

“Consistently good.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Food and cocktails are both tasty. My favorite is the Jambalya made with linguica. Not traditional, but oh so good! If you're not too hungry, don't start off with the bread. You can't just one! I suggest having your server bring it with your meal. The one meal I've had that I didn't care for was their veggie burger. It's a bit too thick and mushy.
Dining is casual and the staff is friendly.

“Worse Than Average”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

This place has gone downhill -- service is poor, food is awful. Ticked off that I had to pay for the experience. Will not go back.

“Used to be a favorite”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

Since it was opened, have enjoyed bringing friends and family here to try their tasty and very original food. Made a reservation for tonight to bring family still in town for our Easter celebration. Firstly, tonight our service wasn't very good. Most of the meals were alright but the two that had the sirloin tips were greatly disappointed. Meat was extremely tough and couldn't be chewed. Our waitress never came near to check on us till it was too late. We explained about the bad meat and she could see half left on the plate but no compensation or offer of another dish was offered. No manager came and even apologized. If anything, he purposely seem to avoid our table. What a shame because I won' t be bringing guests here again.

“Super restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013

When a restaurant has a good and active manager, it is invariably a good restaurant. The manager welcomed us when we first arrived, checked with us a second time to make sure the food was good, and since we were first time visitors, brought us a discount card for our next meal.

The service was spot on as was the food. I had a hamburger with french fries and my wife had a salad. Both were great. Our drink glasses were refilled promptly.

We will return to this restaurant!!!

“Fun Atmosphere, Good Food, Enjoyable Place to Dine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

I always enjoy eating here, especially in the warmer months when I can sit outside. They have a good menu (though I was disappointed when the lobster mac and cheese was removed from it; it was so good!) and great drinks. The service here is always friendly. This is a great restaurant to please everyone.
