Our family of 5 had all been craving an Ohana fix! We finally made it over to stuff ourselves with spectacular food. I've never been disappointed by anything here. Two people from the other family at our table ordered calamari- we've never tried it but it looked great. I had to get scallops- yum! The sauce served on top of... More

This isn't your average run of the mill hibachi restaurant. The food is delivered fresh and is of amazing quality. Cy and the rest of the team prepare everything by hand. You can tell. Our favorite is the filet and scallops. The filet is melt in your mouth tender. The scallops are covered in a lemon-mayonnaise type sauce: I can... More

Absolutely love going to Ohanas! The filet is to die for. Melts in your mouth its so good. Not a huge fan of fish but the scallops with their special sauce are amazing. You will not leave this place disappointed! Love the atmosphere, its like dinner and a comedy show depending on which chefs you get. Prices may seem high... More

Ohana is the best Japanese steakhouse I've been to around the world! The scallops are to die for, the filet is butter knife tender, the calamari was beyond delicious...it was my go-to location for every special occasion and at least once a month the entire time I lived in central Iowa. Now it is my standard that I compare everything... More

This is a Japanese steakhouse. I had dinner there with 4 colleagues. We had a great steak and got great show show from the chef when he was preparing the food in front of us. Will absolutely come back when I'm in the area again.

We ALWAYS go here on Wednesdays when in town. The two for one steak and shrimp is always good. The chefs give you a great laugh. Sometimes the wait staff is a little slow. Overall we return again and again

The low bar stool cushions were filthy. If a friend had furniture that dirty I wouldn't sit down. They had a dirty trash cans visible to the guests. The food was great. Our chef was a little over the top. He made several inappropriate comments including when one of the teenagers asked where the restrooms were he said do it... More
