I have eaten at Shogun several times during my visits to Bowling Green. This time it was my wife, son and I. My son and I love good sushi and you will find good sushi at Shogun. The atmosphere is nice and the service is good although sushi can take a while. My wife does not care for sushi but... More

This is an attempt at an upscale establishment. Some items have flavor, but the taste is very bland for the most part. The prelube aka soup that everyone gets, is Luke warm water. Sushi depends on the day and I guess who prepares it, much like the hibachi chef throwing shrimp at you. I'm not impressed. $65 for two people,... More

Come hungry because you get enough food on one plate for a family. Always delicious. Sushi is superb and the hibachi is excellent. Always sit for the show the food is better for some reason than just sitting at a table. Excellent service. Will be back!

We've eaten here quite a few times now. Overall it's usually very good. Time before last though our veggies weren't cooked all the way. Last time, we had a pretty young chef and while his show wasn't top of the line, his food definitely was! The best time to go is Monday - Friday from 3-5 because they have a... More

Great Hibachi meal many choices and a mountain of food for the money. Were here after training class for work and great value. Can't wait for the next time I get here and am able to go again.

Shogun never disappoints. The food is amazing, the hibachi chefs are pretty skilled, and the atmosphere is really nice. The specials are worth coming for as you'll save a decent amount. While the menu is a bit pricey to say the least, its worth it. My only knock is the actual staff. The host/hostess and even the floor manager aren't... More

Shogun can't be beat for entertaining a crowd, or celebrating a special event. Food is always delicious. I could eat a plate of rice, alone, and leave happy every time. Kids love it, and beg to return!

We have eaten at Japanese steakhouses a lot, so we opt to eat at the booths near the bar and order hibachi. We have seen the show and just want the awesome food at his point. Our server was Alec and he was amazing! Super nice and super fast! We had a great meal and did not have to wait... More

Keep coming back for the food, but the previous visit may be my last. They close at 10:30 and the doors were locked at 10, had to have another member of my party come let me in. When I asked why they were closed so early, our waiter simply said, "I am a college student, I don't want to be... More
