We would splurge and eat here three or four times a year. Usually to celebrate something. We loved the place. I would say the last two times though, something has changed. The show is still great, but the yummy/yucky sauce has changed, and I think I can tell some of the quality has gone downhill a bit. It's still a... More

My sister & I love this place! The kids really love it too. Amazing rice rolls & sushi menu! We normally just sit in the sushi bar, but sitting at the grill is entertaining. At the grill chefs perform while cooking/serving your food. Excellent fresh food!

This is my favorite sushi location in Rockford. They are just finishing an extensive remodeling project. Service is always excellent as is the food.

Shogun’s offers your traditional hibachi entertainment experience. I write ‘traditional’ because there are a couple other chain restaurants that offer the very same form of dinning entertainment. I can’t speak for every restaurant in the chain, but I can say our night out at the Rockford location was pleasant and delicious. We ordered the ‘Combination Dinning for 2’ with a... More

Even with reservation had to wait almost 45 minutes and wine had to be returned as vinegary. Seems like trying to save opened bottles too long.

First time visiting Shogun. Fantastic experience and great food. It took awhile to be seated, but that was my fault. Saturday evening reservations are a must and we went on an impulse. Well worth the wait but next time, and there will definitely be a next time, I'll plan ahead and make reservations. There wasn't a table in the house... More

We go here for date night a LOT! Love the food and the atmosphere. We usually eat on the Izakaya side, because you can get the same food, it just doesn't have the show.

Sushi is decent and service is excellent. On the Hibachi side not so well. Very crowded, Proportions are not always even. Lacking in flavors and quality- High volume customer base.
