We travel to North Carolina every month and we make sure to stop here. The service is great and the good is always perfect. The only slight change I would make is that the chefs that cook for you were more entertaining towards the kids. But it doesn't stop me from coming.

Came here for lunch after walking out of Applebee's without ordering and we were seated right away and had our food making in front of us within 10 minutes. Great server, chef, and great food.

It was a coworker's going away and she picked this restaurant. We waited an hour and a half for a table on Saturday night (they don't take reservations.) No big deal, the place was crowded, so we went with it. We were seated with another party who was celebrating a birthday. And waited. No one came. About twenty minutes went... More

We were catching up with old friends and they suggested this restaurant. We had ample opportunity for good conversation along with an entertaining chef and good food. Our chef had a fun sense of humor and kept us entertained. I had the Hibachi Chicken and enjoyed it. When they found out is was our anniversary, they brought out a small... More

This is a very popular restaurant. We went on a very rainy Friday night and it was packed. We had a 45 minute wait, even though the restaurant is extremely large. Come early unless you want to wait. The cook put on a very entertaining show and the food was very tasty. I recommend that you not get the chicken,... More

Brought an old work buddy to dinner along with my wife for a relaxing dinner. The server took our drink orders and, as expected, we waited for a few more couples to join to the table so we could get dinner started. Diner was ok, we all had the filet with another side. My steak was a bit on the... More

The chef we had was super boring which made the experience as bland as the food. Server was ok but didn't tell us what to expect. Need to change up their pink sauce tastes like bland fry sauce. Probably won't be back.

Food here is OK and i've visited a few times but overall rather average. Very much a chain feel. OK if you are in the area.

The resturant is very inviting. There is a lage open lobby with greaters. We wanted to try to sushi as a light snack. It tasted great! The servers and all the people we encounter were very nice.

I chose not to have the meal prepared in front of me because the food itself is delicious and I didn't need the show. There were lots of people enjoying the chefs cooking at their tables though. This is a really good restaurant either way you choose to dine.
