Very well prepared dishes. I like the atmosphere, mix of industrial look and bar-style and normal tables. Friendly staff and good value!

Always reliable we eat here regularly when we just don't feel like making dinner. Monday nights is a special treat - $1 oysters and shrimps. It is a chain, but the food is made on site and has the feel of a local restaurant.

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.
