We enjoyed the hibachi dinner here. We only had to wait a few minutes to get enough people for the meal (six). The chef was fun, the waiter was very pleasant, and the food was good. The restaurant was right on the main drag, and very clean.

When a server did finally take our drink order they gave us both something other than what... More

We are here one day at 3:00, a late lunch/early dinner. When we walked in only one other table was occupied, place seemed a little iffy, but we decided to give it try. Overall the facility was not great. Floors were very sticky, the bathrooms were HORRIBLE!!!!! The food was pretty average, a typical hibachi grill. It was good and... More

We enjoy going to the Japanese Steak Houses and being able to get a show from the chef. It is so nice to be sitting with people you do not know and seem like family when you leave.
