We went to this restaurant thinking it would satisfy multiple different food tastes of our group including vegans and a foodie adventurer. Setting is slightly tacky but not unusual for this niche of restaurant. Food overall was very good across all tastes. Even our foodie adventurous one tried and liked the Korean offering. This place is a good option for... More

It was very dark, kind of dingy, the young man doing the hibachi show did a nice job but seemed that it was abbreviated since there was only 2 of us at the time to watch the show. The food seemed fresh but didn't have a lot of flavor. Some of it was burnt. I think maybe we got the... More

While this is an older facility, it is well worth it. We visited late on a Thursday, and it was not very busy. We were politely greeted and quickly seated. The menu clearly showed the options and costs. The server was quick and attentive. The chef gave a good show and delivered a most excellent meal. Our family will certainly... More

We have been to this restaurant on multiple occasions. Our kids like the food and it is great to have the presentation when they are cooking. The restaurant was empty when we arrived. Sadly I found the chef we had (Aug 2014) was not up to par compared to others we had had in the past. It was too much... More

We were here twice, five years apart. In that time, the decor seems to have gotten a little worn, but the food is still great and the entertainment is terrific. Our chef even gave us some excellent tips for places to visit during our stay. Since it was my daughter's birthday, the owner brought out a big box of musical... More

Food and service were good - worth a return visit. Restaurant, inside and out, is old, not well cared-for. Inside needs a good cleaning, new coat of paint and new carpeting - not worth a return visit.

The interior needs a facelift.... Old and dark... The chef we had was a good guy though lacking that true hibachi flair. The food he cooked was phenomenal!!!

We visited this restaurant to take a break from the beach during our vacation. 7 pm on a Thursday night and the place was deserted. Not a good sign, but we were already there so we decided to try it. We were greeted by the owner, an elderly gentleman who was very polite and helpful. With the exception of the... More

Never tried Shogun; dropped in one day to see how it was. First, the place has carpet which obviously hadn't been cleaned since it opened. Second, old food was dropped on the floor around the grill, tucked under the support table. It had obviously been there for a long, long time. Third, it smelled - really bad! The food was... More

I took my family here for New Years. The tables were like ice. I swear the place was just opened for some quick cash on New Years. The staff was really nice, but new and had no experience. I thought the Hibachi chef was going to hack his fingers off. They had the nerve to cook the rice ahead of... More
