A few reviews of this place have said that they got bad service here but I've been twice and it's been fine for me. Both visits were during lunchtime and I would really recommend the lunchtime special (3 rolls of sushi) as it is good sushi for Iowa at a good price. The bento boxes agent as good but still... More

Was solo, so did not orders sushi. Had hibachi steak, with teriyaki sauce? Was cubes of beef with lots of sauce. Sauce was similar to sauces I have had at other mid grade Japanese steak houses. Veggies not crisp, in fact way over cooked. I ordered steamed rice but was served fried rice. The soup appetizer was ok. The best... More

Shogun's lunch menu has good variety. I chose the salmon Bento Box. The meal came very quickly. I was pleasantly surprised by the tastiness of food and pleased with all components of the box.

The restaurant is usually near empty and is in a strip mall, but don't let that fool you. Great sushi, rolled perfect! Fresh, fast and great!

The sushi is made fresh. It is a quaint relaxed restaurant and the staff is very pleasant. The sushi is great! A great variety at an affordable price. I often go there to order take out as well.

After reading service was slow, had modest expectations, but we were so pleased with the service. Sushi was served in less than 10 minutes. We ordered 3 rolls and 4 sushi. All delicious. Daughter going to college here, we will be back for sure!

I lived in Japan for a year a couple decades back. Walking into Shogun was like a trip down memory lane. The yakitori, tempura vegtables and yakisoba noodles are great. Pretty much the only asian restaurant ill go to anymore. Try this place, you wont be disappointed.

We ordered a bunch of tuna rolls and were not disappointed! They were delicious! We also had the tempura chicken, some chicken skewers and some... More

Food was hot, freshly made, but took a while and I was the only customer at the time. I did not try their sushi. Marcydiner rating a 5-no screaming kids.
