We love the atmosphere and the entire Shogun Experience. Good drinks, great chefs, and a nice bar for before dinner cocktails. Would definitely recommend to a friend.

Been in this Japanese restaurant several times and now I see they have opened up a new section with a more quiet cozy area fine dining style. Food is always good, wide offer and prompt service. Prices are very respectful and within the expectation. Great for a party, a couple dining or business dinner. Bar tab should be transferred to... More

The variety of sushi offerings are amazing. Or, if taste for fish is not what you crave, they have several grill areas for seating to get your steak, chicken, shrimp and lobster tastes covered. Or, if you are looking for small bites of just about anything, Shogun is the place to be. Outstanding variety and tastes.

Our favorite Japanese restaurant. The chef was great with our 8 year old birthday girl. They beat the drum and sang to her as well. She loved it! Love the salad dressing, fried rice and filet.

Shogun is reliably excellent for a Japanese food in a cozy atmosphere with clear air. We usually go to the Cafe side. My wife enjoys Shrimp Tempura, while I always go with a Bento Box for the great selection of delights this brings. Reminds me of my trips to Japan, coming close to the quality I recall.

i really enjoy this place when I am passing through Rockford, IL. The sushi always good and you get a lot for your money. The drinks are great too- excellent wine offerings and the tap micro brews are also good.

My husband and I decided to try Shogun in Rockford for a date night. I would highly recommend reservations. When I called the day of I could only get in before 5:00 and after 8:00, which worked out for us because we saw a movie. The parking lot was packed so I thought for sure we would have to wait...
