A Fun Experience

This was our daughter's 1st time to experience this type of restaurant. The food was great and the master chef quite skilled as well as pleasant. The meal and time spent there was a fun experience to share with our girl. The food was delicious and plentiful!

We had reservations here before the Arkansas Razorback basketball game at Verizon arena. The restaurant was very busy that evening with many people having to wait over an hour. We were seated quickly and our table was filled shortly after we were seated. It did take some time for our chef to come to our table, but they were pretty... More

I have been to this location several times because it is local, however, I am not crazy about the food. I have tried lots on the menu, it's really just okay.

It's McDonald's with a hot table and mediocre food. A better meal at the Steak House in the same hotel.

My husband and I went to Benihana on 11/17/15 for his birthday. We enjoyed the group at our table but the food was very disappointing. We both ordered the Oceans Treasure. The scallops were very thin and almost looked like they had been sliced. Everything was over cooked. The shrimp and lobster were very tough. The shrimp was even charred.... More
