If you want a good dinner show and some strong sake I would come here. The show is more interactive then the other restaurant in the area. Food is good you get noodles here as opposed to the other one where they are not included. The atmosphere is good. Can be loud at times but wont detract from the overall... More

This place is where locals go for good sushi, Japanese food, and plenty of fun. When people are celebrating birthdays, they have the waitstaff gather round, clap hands and sing in unison. There is a real Japanese Teppan-master, showing off knife skills and cooking meat and vegetables in front of you. They have a nice array of drinks, including sake... More

I like to start out at the connected bar, Izakaya. Then make our way to the tables, where the chef cooks the food in front of you. the usual spinning egg, and onion Trane. Shogun has the best show in town, and the food is top quality. The steaks are just wonderful. I like to order the dinner for two,... More

When you want sushi, this is one of two restaurants I'd recommend in area. Their "Rockford" roll is delicious. Smallish inside, but seldom too packed to get in.

Although this place is renovating itseld and recently opened a new dining area, the traditional sushi remain one of their best offer. Simple, tasty, fresh, we'll presented ! If you like the chef show, make sure you sit inside the grill area. Food will be prepared to perfection! Always a very good choice if you are in Rockford.

One of the best Japanese steak houses in the country. I will definitely be coming back. Service, show, staff and the food all 5 star.

This place is always amazing, we go for every birthday as the kids love it. Chicken was a little dry but it can't be perfect every time, so close

So I had been to this restaurant a handful of times with my friend who goes here multiple times a month. I enjoyed their food very much, however, 1 incident is why I have to give this place a terrible rating. My friend and I ordered food to go. When we got home and opened our meals things seemed normal... More

tripfoodieRockford, General Manager at Shogun Japanese, responded to this review

As a representative of Shogun Restaurant. I was actually the manager/person you are referring to in this post. We actually do not like responding to online reviews/issues publicly as it always seems to invoke argument. But this post makes us/me look really awful. Also there are simply put, things that didn't happen in your review. So I hope once again... More
