Fun atmosphere for family lunch/dinner. Children really enjoy the show & interaction with the chef. The food is fresh but average when compared to other hibachi restaurants.

This place is your standard Benihna-type steakhouse where you sit around a grill and they make volcanoes out of onions, and throw shrimp around, and some other tricks. I had dinner here on New Year's Eve. The prices skyrocketed to gouge the clientele on this night. I thought the portions for the rib eye and other steaks was really, really... More

Took a couple co- workers and out of town guests. We were sat in a private room which was very drafty. The food was good, portions were large and the chef was great and very funny. Fun time, something different!

This restaurant had a good feel and large menu but the rolls where just not good. My friends had the tempura calamari and they really liked it but most of us wanted good sushi and Japanese rolls and were let down. The salad with ginger dressing was good though. We won't return.

Another in the line of teppanyaki - hibachi restaurants with a sushi bar, but on a big scale. Lots of room...and a sizeable bar. Lunch was good, staff friendly and prompt, everything was nice. My sushi was tasty, no complaints!

We like to eat here, because the grandkids like to watch the chefs do their magic on the grill. Seating is in a horseshoe-shaped arrangement, with the grill in the middle. You can place your order for fresh ingredients to grill, or appetizers to enjoy before the "show" begins. They offer a full bar, with lots of beers and libations.... More

We had a great time and super food at Izakaya! Everything we ordered was so fresh and beautiful. There were six of us and the staff took great care of us! We will certainly return!

Came here with kids while staying at nearby hotel. Great option for kids where they are something other than the usual fries and etc. The hibachi show was not the best I've seen, but the food was good, especially the shrimp.

This place has some great vegan sushi options. I had cucumber, avocado and sweet potato rolls along with edamame and tempura vegetables. Amazing!
