This has long been my favorite place to splurge on a hibachi meal -high quality ingredients prepared with care that's rare to find these days. You can get sushi anywhere, but not a hibachi meal like Shogun. I give only 4 stars instead of 5 because after coming here for years I had a bad preparation one night when coming... More

My sisters and I were visiting from out of state.The restaurant looked small from the outside, but when we walked in, we were impressed by the simple beauty and atmosphere of the place. Then we were "blown away" by the elegantly prepared and delicious dishes. There was such a large choice on the menu that we initially had difficulty deciding... More

My family and I have visited Shogun many times in the past 3 years and it's always more than good - most times it's excellent and we can't say that about many places. Our favorites are the Spicy Rock Shrimp appetizer and the Spicy Lobster appetizer. Always presented with a crisp, glistening exterior and soft interior and bathed in a... More

I love going to Shogun. The staff is friendly. The sushi rolls never disappoint. I always miss the sesame chicken. Though ordinary, it's the best tasting sesame chicken I've had, as if they had a secret recipe!

fresh tasting sushi and plenty of none sushi (noddle) options for non-sushi lovers. Was visiting town for work (and was staying within walking distance of the restaurant) so just found it through a google search. Glad I gave it a chance.

My parents and I went here for a quick lunch. The sign caught our eye. The selection of food was astounding. Also, the lunch menu had so much variety. My mother and I got a teriyaki chicken lunch box special and my father got a sushi lunch special. I also got a side of fried rice for myself and a... More

What a good lunch? Want a meal before going out for the evening? Shogun is for you. Good sushi for albsny. Great seaweed salad. Good drinks. There are other Japsnese dishes, which my friends tell me are quite good. I am just a raw fish freak! Good bar.
