We went for dinner and were surprised by the quality of service and really better than average food. I had the hibachi steak and my husband had the shrimp. Either one a great choice. Fresh crisp veggies with white or fried rice, entrees come with soup and salad.

Benihanna always has excellent food. It's always fresh. Service is great. Food preparation is excellent. This never changes. I have been eating at this restaurant over the last 40 years. Great any time. Their dishes are consistently good whenever you eat there. It's a good place to take friends and relatives to for special occasions or just a nice place... More

My wife and I enjoy taking our kids to a hibachi restaurant on occassion, as a desirable alternative to the typical family establishment and chain restaurant. We found the experience at Benihana to be average, at best, when compared to other similar restaurants. The prices, though, were 10-20% higher than typical. I had never visited a Benihana before; I doubt... More

I hadn't been to a Benihana's in at least twenty years. I remember it very fondly and of course was wondering if time would have taken a toll on the brand. I can assure you it did not. The chef was personable and entertaining and created an onion volcano that truly impressed. The food of course was superb and presented... More

We go to Benihana's fairly regularly. It is one of my families favorite places. However, I tired to take my mom out to lunch today at noon. They wouldn't serve us lunch, only dinner entrees. I get that it is Valentine's day, but my mother and I just wanted to enjoy a nice lunch together on a Friday afternoon. They... More

Theresa, the manager, has been there for years and we always enjoy a nice hello when we arrive. We have been going to this restaurant for quite some time now and the filet mignon never disappoints! The seared tuna is also one of my favorites.

Please do not throw away money here. This was by far the worst dining experience we've ever had in our lifetime and we have never been so grossly overcharged when we strictly ordered 2 of the same simple entrees off the menu, no extras NO SIDE orders-it was that simple! Although the chef was busy in his own world quietly... More

Love the food, visit Benihana almost monthly in Seattle. We happened across this one, and thought YUM! Food was awesome, atmosphere always good, but the service was soooo slow. the table next to us sat after us, was helped, and then the chef began on our table. I think they must have been short handed. They shoildnt have sat us... More

I love Behinana. I try to visit one where ever I travel. I was so excited that there was one in the Hershey area. We decided to sit at the sushi bar because we didn't want hibachi. The sushi was excellent. But the sushi chef kind of ignored us. We had to order everything from our waitress, who went missing... More
