Prepare for a dining experience unlike any other. Watch as your personal chef performs the ancient art of Teppanyaki. Listen as razor-sharp blades slice through tender steak and juicy chicken. Take in the aroma of sizzling shrimp, lobster and savory vegetables. And don’t forget our delicious sushi appetizers, including fresh nigiri, sashimi and specialty rolls, all made with the same flair that made Benihana a legend in Japanese cuisine.

My husband I went for Lunch arriving at noon. We were seated next to 4 stations of people cooking along with all the banging and noise. No one else was in the restaurant and of all the seats this was managements choice. The place did not seem ready for customers as the staff was running all around. The atmosphere seemed... More

The habachi chicken express lunch worked well for my wife and me. We ate at a table in the bar. A very pleasant dining experience.

We went here for my birthday while on vacation with a group of 3 adults 2 teens and 2 toddlers. The food was good but I expected more portions for the price. We were served more fried and steamed rice than anything. I remember that the Chefs use to be more entertaining. This is what made going to Benihana"s so... More

The restaurant is located on the water and that is the only good thing about the restaurant. The carpet is dirty and disgusting. The tables are the smallest you will ever see in a hibachi restaurant with barely enough space for 4, but they seat 6 at the tables. The hibachi show is boring and unentertaining.

I'm not sure why so many bad reviews but I wanted to find out by myself: I made a reservation for the next day. When we arrived, we were greeted at the front and were given a buzzer. We went to the bar and a friendly bartender served us a small bottle of Sake. We were not even done with... More

If you are having a birthday or any type of celebration, this is the restaurant to visit, you will get your private table for a large group. Lunches are my favorite, the lunch menu is more economical and the view of the Intracoastal with the parade of private yachts going by is unique in the World.
