I am actually rather shocked at some of these recent reviews. We had a late afternoon dinner there today and chose the hibachi grill table and had a great meal. We were celebrating a birthday and they certainly made it special with singing, instruments and...More

This is going to be the worst review I have ever written. Typically I can find some redeeming quality. Good service. Friendly service. Clean. Something. I got nuthin. The beer was cold. That's it. My husband and I sat at the bar on a Saturday...More

Came here as a reward for my sushi loving daughter and we were told the sushi chef did not bother to come in that day. We left. Their food may be terrific but without the proper tools and personnel I guess I will never know.

Hadn't been in awhile and I remember why. The outside of the building was unkept. The inside was tired and dated. The server was below average. The sushi we had was pretty good but we just wanted to leave. Go somewhere else.

The outside of the restaurant has greatly deteriorated since the last time I had eaten here. Weeds EVERYWHERE. Landscaping was overgrown. There was even weeds in the flower containers. A tiny wooden patio outside was weathered and falling apart. The place didn't really look clean...More

I've lived in the area for 20 years, and during that time, I've seen at least 4-5 restaurants on this one spot of land (for sure there have been a Perkins, a much-lamented place run by the old Funky's group, and an absolutely horrible Mexican...More
