My family decided to return to this restaurant this year because we had such a great experience last year. The food is great and our hibachi chef, Billie, is the best! We had him last year as well, and he is great with the kids! I highly recommend that you give this place a try!

When we arrived I noticed that the menus didn't list the early bird so I asked our server if we could get the early bird special. He asked me what time it was and I told him just after 5 o'clock. He... More

This is one of the top hibachi in myrtle beach. Food was excellent, menu was good, and the chefs we're outstanding- put on a great show for the kids. Good for families. If you go early you can save big $ with the bluebird menu and basically get the same amount of food as the dinner menu. Will definitely visit... More

Had to make a stop at lens crafter in the mall and stopped in for lunch. Such an amazing meal. Have been to other hibachi places but this one by far was great. And Billy the cook was the best ever!!
