The food was good and flavored well for the most part. Lots of options, including seafood, sushi, and American items. I never found the prime rib. The steak was so chewy that I gave up on it. My husband liked the sushi. Dessert was disappointing....More

Anytime I can get all-you-can-eat seaweed salad and sushi for 12.99 at lunch, I'm happy. Quality is good, and lots of other line items are excellent. Springs rolls and gyoza are horrid. Servers can be flakey (are we supposed to tip them?).

nothing marked as gluten free. However, there's plenty on meats, seafoods, veggies, sushi, salad and fresh fruits...all should be gluten free
