We have been eating at Ichiban for over 10 years now. The food and service are great but the prices have increased over the years. Our family only eats here now at lunch when the prices are more reasonable than they are at dinner.

Lunch date with the hubby. Seated right away for sushi and soup. Waitress very nice, attentive and fast. Had a spider roll, which was very tasty and was out the door in about 35 minutes in time for a movie!

This has been our go to place for sushi for quite a while but on Thursday evening, we wish we did not go! The regular sushi chef was not working and it was apparent. The sushi lacked in quality, texture, and taste. It was dry and there was a smell in this place that was disturbing. I will try again... More

This is one of my husbands favorite places! Our daughters enjoy the hibachi style cooking with the flames and all! The food is delicious, I love the sushi!

The food is good and great hibachi. The only thing that I didn't like about the food was there was to many vegetables in the rice. I prefer to have fried rice with my veggies on the side, but this wasn't an option. Great food, okay priced!

Ichiban has very good food. I was disappointed that there was no teriyaki sauce available for the chicken or steak. Maybe they were just out at the moment, but I got the impression that this simply was not offered. Strange indeed. The environment is relaxed and the chefs are great - personable and very good at what they do! The... More

My family and I absolutely love Ichiban. It has been a local favorite for years in our family. The restaurant is always clean. The food is always fresh and very good. We seem to never want for anything when we go. I would suggest that if you plan on going on a Friday or Saturday night to call ahead and... More

Love this place for the sushi! I guess their hibachi food is ok, but normally only go here for the sushi. We travel a great deal and until this place did not have what we would call a good place to get sushi near home. But Mike is the key to this sushi bar! His offerings are fresh, made while... More

We made a reservation the week before for a large group(12). When we arrived at the restaurant for our meal they seated us as if nothing was wrong. When we asked why it was so hot in there...they joked "oh...the air is out." WTH!!! They could have called us before we arrived to see if we wanted to come over... More
