It was our first time doing the hibachi experience, our chef made the evening very enjoyable. Food was very good. Yes it's up there in price but it is worth it and the decor is awesome.

The sushi was very good. Some of the special rolls were excellent - We placed a large take-out order for a party - and everyone enjoyed the platters. We would go back - and try to eat there to enjoy the atmosphere next time.

Free shuttle from GWL was nice. Driver was very nice.
Pros: Huge cuts of filet, chef put on a great show, service.
Cons: WAY overpriced. If you've ever been to habachi before you will notice this, they charge for WATER. and it's in a plastic bottle. It's only 25 cents but really??? Why anger your customers over a quarter.
It was ok but wouldn't go back

Our hibachi "chef" was an Italian kid. Screwed up everything. Made a five-year-old cry by chucking a piece of broccoli in her face. By accident, of course. Couldn't even crack an egg properly. Eggshells made it into our food. Charged for freaking water. Overpriced, I understand it takes a while to learn this, and I am sure it's nerve wracking. That's why we didn't walk out in the middle of our dinner. Mediocre food at best. My frozen margarita didn't even smell like a margarita, nor taste like it, Added an 18% gratuity, and the waitress made sure to point out to leave more. That was a joke. It was the one and only time I will ever go there. Lesson learned. After having seen a real hibachi chef at work, this was laughable.

The food and drinks were excellent here! They had a shuttle from the Great wolf lodge and they picked us up promptly when we were done. The staff was great! They were fun and very knowledgeable! We had a birthday party child and they made him feel so special!
