Good food with entertainment

the typical good natured Japanese cook..but his uniform was filthy and off putting. The girl server didn't offer drink refills and was unseen until we left when she did get refills for the children, but it was too late. The food was very good .

We highly enjoy Kabuto's. There can be a long wait at times on the weekend (which is a good sign), but always well worth it. The chefs are entertaining, the server/waitress is always good at bringing refills, and the prices are reasonable.

I hate writing reviews that aren't positive, but this just wasn't good. We were in town for the afternoon and decided to grab a bite to eat around 4pm. The place was busy due to an "Early Bird Special" but we were seated right away. Our waitress was slow with drinks and refills. Empty soup and salad bowls weren't removed... More

Always a fantastic time. We're a little short staffed this evening but the chef as always takes care of the guests. Food was wonderful as always and we just made the early bird special before 5!

I liked that I could make reservations. I liked the way the chef interacted with the children at our table. I really liked the fresh veggies. The steak was very tender. Huge servings. We all took home some leftovers. Very reasonably priced. Good service. Will go again. Maybe today, I'm ready!

I was an out of town visitor and somewhat hesitant when I found the place on the internet. I drove there and found it was rather busy. I was nicely pleased with the meal and would recommend it to anyone visiting Goodlettsville. The had the ribeye at the hibachi grill. Someone at my table had the scallops that they looked... More

I never did the Hibachi or dine in option since it's just me so I sat at the sushi bar which was great. The service was sometimes slow but the food was really good and the sushi was fresh. Highly recommend if your in Goodlettsville.

Kabuto's has a nice atmosphere. It's both casual and formal, depending on the guests. There is shared table seating if you have under 8 guests, however, it's not intrusive. The chefs are well trained and entertaining, which is a plus for all ages. The food is very good, however, there's a significant up-charge price difference on the weekends (Fri, Sat... More
