Food and show at hibachi grill is good. But when you order certain items from the menu they automatically add 18% tip on the entire purchase. And the worst part is they don't even say anything about it most of the time. One time I witnessed server explaining that tip will be added, but only ONE time out of 10+. Always look at your hand written check and see if there is a stamp somewhere on it stating that tip is included.

Two options there . . . Sushi, prepared by Chef Will, a solid local kid who has been there for 10+ years an knows his customers like the back of his hand . . . or . . . Hibachi.

I am not fond of Hibachi but I must say that taking people there who have never seen it makes a nice show.

Steve, the owner, is nice but we got ripped once. We had catered for a party at our house Sushi for 50 people. We know we were getting a fair deal with Will until Steve got involved and turned it to a nothing that required us to order extra food from other place to make up for it.

Since then, we only go there four five times a year when we are invited and have no choice. Too bad because the Sushi is good and Will is worth the trip . . . but as they say . . . if you don’t have integrity—you don’t have anything.

This is your typical hibachi style Japanese steakhouse. The sushi was very, very good. The prices are reasonable. We will make a return visit.

Nice show with the Hibachi grill and the food was pretty good. Definitely get there early on the weekends. Place fills up quickly. Lots of fun though.

The sushi here is amazing. Usually my husband and I just go to the sushi bar and eat. This time we went with several friends/ family and had the hibachi experience (and of course a LOT from the sushi bar)! The staff are very friendly, and the food is wonderful!!! Very entertaining hibachi chef. Sometimes service at the hibachi can be a little slow on busy nights, so don't come here if you are in a hurry to get in and out.... but who would want to? Its a great place to spend a couple of hours eating, drinking, and enjoying the atmosphere.
