Thank you for writing. Our customers have the option to dine at larger tables where the chef cooks at the hot grill in front of them and smaller tables where a party of two can enjoy both hot teppan items in addition to sushi offerings - both while overlooking the beautiful Atlantic ocean.

Hope to see you again soon,

Mark H - Owner

A perennial favorite with our family.There is both a hibachi side and a slightly smaller "sushi" side, both with views of the Atlantic. Parking is often a challenge, as the lot fills quickly. The food quality is consistently fresh and of good quality, in keeping with other Benihana locations.The kids will love the hibachi show and ours still fondly remember the raccoons bumming food outside from years gone by. The servings are always generous and we had leftovers for lunch the next day. Both warm & cold sake choices are available.

Nice comprehensive review - thank you! PS: the raccoons you referred to have been gone for many years, we even had one that appeared to have cross bread with a cat if that is possible. Hope to see you again soon.

Arigato,

The restaurant itself was nice and the location was great but the food was lacking unfortunately... To start the soup had a good flavor but was barely luke warm at best. The salad had nearly no dressing on it which turned out to be a good thing because I think the dressing was spoiled somehow as the flavor was awful. The cook was excellent and the rice had a great flavor and was the highlight of the night! In our party we ordered shrimp, chicken, and steak hibachi as well as 2 different sushi rolls and none of us were impressed in the least. For 4 of us it was $200 and we can honestly say we will never go back to Benihana. We enjoy numerous hibachi restaurants and this was the worst we've ever had. Also my wife and I wanted to enjoy a few drinks but were only able to order 1 beer as the server simply didn't come back.

Thank you for writing. We are located on the Atlantic where every seat has an ocean view. Our salad dressing is made fresh daily and the beauty of having your chef cook at your table is to ensure that everything is seasoned to your liking. I think our Hibachi Chicken Fried Rice is the best in the world which I hope you will agree. I invite you to try us again and ask for me personally so I can ensure your complete satisfaction.

Sincerely,

Mark H - Owner
