    My family and I go here all the time, however, today was an absolute disaster. The waitress was nice, however, she wasn’t around much, we had to search for her on several occasions for refills, and the food was awful! I have never had such bad tasting food in my experience there, and was frustrated that our service charge (her tip) was automatically included because we had 8 people, because she definitely do enough to deserve over $60 in a tip. I can’t even describe how bad the food was.

    Took our Mother there for Mother's Day. Thinle was our chef. We were seated quickly. The young man that took our orders was extremely nice and checked back with us often even though the restaurant was full. Thinle was very good and cooked everything perfectly. We had the Hibachi Chicken, Filet Mignon and the 3 meat/fish combo. Everyone enjoyed our lunch. We will be back!

    The guy cooking was more interested in the table next to us and gossiping with the other cook than doing their normal “show” and no fire. We had 2 kids which were 5 & 12 but charged for junior meals, not kids meals. For 5 people, we spent $200 so very excessive for what we got. Another place that is the same but in another town is literally half that for all 5 of us.
