We made what was probably our fiftieth visit to Yamato's over many years and, once again, walked away pleased with the experience. Food and antics were typical of all Hibachi style steakhouses but Yamato's proved to be as consistent as always.

Great value for the money. Helping are so big I would suggest splitting the hibachi dinner so that it might actually be possible to finish it. Sushi was fresh and servers very attentive. However the floors had quite a bit of food on them and even though we had a late dinner 8:30 I still expect staff to clean up... More

Best Hibachi on the beach! Located at Broadway on the Beach, enjoy great food as the chefs prepare it right in front of you! For what you get, the prices are fare and you'll most likely be taking home a lot of leftovers. Fun atmosphere, excellent food, and easily my favorite hibachi restaurant on the beach!

The waiters and chefs were good, but the manager ruined the occasion. The individual is not customer oriented, and does not try to accommodate the needs of the customer. Additionally, there is no one to complain to but the rude manager. THE WORST EXPERIENCE EVER! Our family came from various parts of the country, and this person had no empathy!

Because we'd had a disappointing meal at the Hard Rock Cafe in the same location, we weren't sure what to expect at Yamato, but were very pleasantly surprised. The meal was one of the best we've had at a Japanese restaurant. They were happy to do a vegetarian option for my daughter. I had the filet, which was outstanding. My... More

We met some friends in Myrtle Beach, & tried this place for an early dinner. We seated in 4 other people, so they could begin. We had the soup & salad that is usually served with the dinner cooked on the grill. We did have a very personable & talented hibachi cook so that made the meal non-typical. The food... More

The only reason I am leaving a 1 is a 0 is not an option! Yamato has declined since we last visited. The waiter was ok but has a smart mouth. The cook does not know how to season the food. He burnt the lobster over cooked everything else. The food quality greatly lacks. We ordered filet migon but it... More

I've been to similar restaurants. You are seated around a cooking table with others. The chef does an entertaining performance preparing the grilled food. Selection is fish, chicken or beef. There is a light soup and salad. There is a mixed vegetable and fried rice. After the meal, you get a small serving of sherbet. Food was delicious and the... More

New Years Eve dinner at Broadway at the Beach location. We took a chance and was actually able to get a table for 6 in about 20 minute wait with no reservation. The Japanese hibachi and food was quite typical of a restaurant like this. Service was excellent and efficient. Chef interacted with the kids and was entertaining. The nice... More

If you want the experience of a Japanese steakhouse this is the place to go. It is a wonderful location, at Broadway at the Beach and the food is very good. Also you get dessert included in your meal. There is always plenty of food leftover to take home too!

Yamato is dinner....with a show! Teppanyaki style grills where the chef prepares the food right in front of the guest! Perfect for large groups, birthday parties, families, couples, golfers, and everybody in between! Yamato also has a separate sushi bar with a wide variety of fish. Enjoy your dinner while looking over Lake Broadway!
