Shogun has been our birthday & special occasion place of choice for years. We love the hibachi meal from the soup & salad to the fried rice, vegetables, & entree. Lately it has not been up to its formerly great standards. In the past year they have stopped providing 2 complimentary shrimp as an... read more

I took my son and his friend for lunch and it was really a good decision. The service is still entertaining, but on a smaller scale and the portions generous and delicious. A good place for a special lunch with friends or family.

My family and I have been to Shoguns numerous times over the years. We always had a pleasant experience and even brave it on New Years Eve. It is my understanding that Christmas Eve, New Years Eve and New Years Day are the busiest days. So if you mind waiting avoid these days. Depends on what chef you get depends... More

The food was good, and service was really poor. My wife is a vegetarian and they offered to make her dish in the back, and ended up cooking hers with the meat next to the veggies. Then they gave her the smallest portion of veggies and she ordered the veggie meal. My sister in law asked for chicks plain with... More

I have been visiting the steakhouse for the past few years. My family enjoys it alot and its fun to watch the fire. Over all the food and atmosphere is good. Service varies at times, one thing I don't about the place

Went there for my mom's birthday dinner with my parents, brother and his wife and children. Food was good but hibachi chef was unbelievably racist and made several inappropriate and unacceptable comments throughout dinner. He stated all black people look like Michael Jackson. Keep in mind I was there with 2 children who are both half black. When my father... More

We went as a group of 9; lots if picky eaters and everyone found something on the menu that they liked! Miracle. And we had fun watching our food being prepared. Kids and adults alike loved it. One or two things to know...it is really loud and if you aren't with a large group you will be seated with others... More

The restaurant has a sushi side with a sushi bar and the grill side with teppanyaki grills where they will cook in front of you. I ordered their grilled shrimp for lunch. It came with salad, soup, white/fried rice, grilled vegetables, and grilled shrimp. The veggies, meat, and fried rice will be cooked in front of you. Food tasted good... More

The sign on the restaurant said 'early bird special' and listed the days/times/and prices. We thought it sounded great so we ordered from the early bird menu. I even pointed to it when ordering. My decision on what to eat was based on the early bird menu pricing. Then the bill came, no early bird pricing. I asked the waiter... More

Server is very polite but is also the hostess so he does not pay close attention. He does great when able. Sushi is eek at best and took a long time to prepare considering we are the only one in the sushi bar. I would not eat here again
