Nice dining room, good staff, interesting menu choices, and reasonably priced. In the summer patio dining is available. Located in downtown Newburyport with plenty of parking in nearby lots.

We sat on the back patio. I was disappointed the hedges were so high as to obscure the view of the river. The service was below average as they appeared very understaffed for the lunch hour. The entire process took longer. I was disappointed that...More

TERRIBLE service full of disorder, confusion, attitude, and even a healthy dose of fresh cigarette smell (must have managed a smoke break while we were waiting FOREVER for our food.) This used to be a favorite place and clearly is popular with the city, but...More

Newburyport is a treasure, especially the downtown park and shops, including the repurposed tannery factory. But, when you have great views, you need a place to sit and enjoy them and have a meal or snack that complements your many pleasures. Not your Average Joe's...More

The food was ok. Along the same lines as any other chain restaurant. Prices were a little high for what we were looking for, but it was convenient as it was the first restaurant next to the harbor.

Food was delicious and sitting on the patio was beautiful. The rosemary scallops were cooked well and the molten lava cake was a perfect ending to the meal.

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.
