Years between visits but this national brand restaurant continues it's tradition of entertaining diners with food prep on a flat top cooking table. The chefs are skilled at engaging the guest. The menu has plenty of options for all.

Our family enjoyed a birthday celebration here and the grandkids loved the showmanship displayed by the chef at the table especially the cutting of shrimp tails and having them caught in his shirt pocket. This is a grand place for families to celebrate something special....More

The food here is good but nothing that really knocked my socks off. I suggest having the lunch boat special or doing hibachi. Although you can find much better hibachi presentations else where the hibachi food is good. I wish this place had a more...More

Decent presentation yet not much of an effort from the chef. Floors were dirty and sticky. Soup was lousy, salad dressing was atrocious. First time eating at a Benihana and was not impressed...

Description
Prepare for a dining experience unlike any other. Watch as your personal chef performs the ancient art of Teppanyaki. Listen as razor-sharp blades slice through tender steak and juicy chicken. Take in the aroma of sizzling shrimp, lobster and savory vegetables. Or visit our sushi bar, where your sushi chef will prepare fresh nigiri, sashimi and specialty rolls, all with the same flair that made Benihana a legend in Japanese cuisine.
