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.

Good as usual

Can't beat the entertainment and value, or the view! Good service, good food, clean. For a chain restaurant, it is one of the best.

If you haven't eaten at a Benihana, go now. Yes, it's a chain. Who cares? You get great food,,prepared by entertaining chefs, right at your table. And the view! It is on the Intercoastal,,so request the section with that view. A family with small children sat near us, and it was so much fun seeing those kids' faces as their... More

Went here for a family gathering and we had the best time. We had Joel as our cook and he was simply amazing. Very funny, engaged everyone and his cuisine was perfection. Great experience and we will definitely be back.

I've gone to this Benihana often and always had a great time. We mainly order steaks but I enjoy their sushi offerings as well. There is valet parking. When you are finished eating - if it's still light outside- take a stroll behind the restaurant to see the intracoastal. I was happy and surprised at the diverse crowds this particular... More

For us it was the first time to go to such kind of restaurant. The show we got was great and a lot of fun. All the elements you see on TV were in it. The chef we had seemed to enjoy it as well. Also all the dishes we chose and he prepared including the steaks were delicious and... More

Great group experience of Hibachi. The chefs at the table are very friendly and doing everything they can to make it fun. The food is just OK in my book, but I still like to experience.

A previous reviewer chided this restaurant for being on the water (Intracoastal Waterway) without there being a view of it because of the tinted windows. That certainly wasn't my experience this day when I stopped in for an early lunch. I had a clear, panoramic view of the water and the boat traffic. Perhaps it was the time of day... More

This restaurant is always really good food-wise... but they have PRIME real estate and you cannot even see the water because the windows are so tinted! It is so disappointing!!! The place is always packed, but they do not take advantage of the waterfront dining!
