We were visiting relatives in Ohio and they invited us to dinner at the Nagoya. While not big Japanese food experts, nor sushi fans, they really liked the Nagoya and wanted to get the opinions of people who enjoy good japanese food. OK...nuf said. As you can see from the other reviews, there are three parts to Nagoya, the Hibachi... More

We have eaten at Nagoya several times and it is always good. The chefs are entertaining ; usually have a few good tricks up their sleeve. It is usually very busy, so there is a lot going on all around - but I think that makes it more fun. Their Yum Yum sauce is the best!!!!

We sat in the sushi bar. Sushi was great...once we got it, 2 hours after we got there! Hostess was snippy and rude, server was inattentive and rude, manager nowhere to be found. Good food ruined by poor experience= no return!

We spend a week in Port Clinton every summer. We eat out every night. I went to this restaurant with a group of friends in July. I was worried because of the reviews I read on Trip Advisor, but the group wanted to go, so I relented. I was concerned that my food would be cooked with or near other... More

We are so terribly sorry that you do not want to return to Nagoya. I would like to respond to a couple of your comments so that our future customers know how we handle situations such as yours. We have a very strict policy about cooking for anyone with a food allergy on the hibachi grills. It IS our policy... More

I went there on my first night in Port Clinton. Good atmosphere. Good staff, but some still need a lot of training. This place is about hibachi grilling and I am not a big fan. Anyway, the grilled squid was excellent with good presentation. Tried some great sushi with Amberjack fish, live giant clam (out of this world), but unfortunately... More

My husband and I like to go here when we come up for the summer. We've only done the hibachi thing once with some of our local friends, but since it's just the 2 of us we seem to end up at the sushi bar quite a bit. I'm a girly girl so I usually go for something cooked, but... More

Nagoya is an ok restaurant. . The food is not as good as it once was. The hibachi chefs are more more interested in a quick in and out at the table than a fun dining experience for the family. They are so busy there they just don't seem to care about each individual table. It is also very expensive... More

This restaurant had excellent food and plenty of it. They also took reservations and I recommend you make one early to ensure your place for Hibachi. The only thing we didn't have was a good hibachi chef. All the chefs around us were better than the one we had. They were entertaining and fun. I guess it is just the... More
