We arrived at Sake House with 3 adults and 4 kids (ages 6-12). While my daughter loves sushi, my son had previously decided he did not like sushi having never tried it. From the start, this seemed like an questionable choice for our crew. We were amazed though- food was SO amazing that even the non-sushi eaters were eating sushi.... More

Went there twice already. First was a few months ago and it was bad, but I gave it another chance. I tought the cook just had a bad day. This time, I had sashimi and was given a few paper thin slices of fish. I felt robbed. My wife's beef negamaki was tasteless and tough, probably leftover pieces from a... More

We ate here once while looking for a good sushi restaurant. It is one of the better sushi restaurants in the area but, it is a bit pricey as compared to other sushi place nearby. The menu offers a large selection so, we had no trouble finding something we liked and we will return.

Been coming here for several years. Staff is akways friendly and the food is great. They have a nice outside patio as well as a bar area. Picture is of my "Hawaiian". Considering it is in a college town dollar night is nuts :)

The restaurant is big and nice. The service was good and food was served promptly. The miso soup needs more flavor as it tasted a bit watered down. The soup udon was fully packed with shrimp and vegetable. But the udon noodles were flat instead of the round thick noodles. The soup also needs more flavor and I asked for... More

Pros: courteous, clean, open to customizing your maki, al fresco dining in the summer and fall, Nigori sake. Good fresh sushi without the urban showbiz vibe. Cons: unimaginative non sushi menu (something as simple as donburi not on the menu); salad is nutritionally bereft iceberg lettuce. Pro tip: Avoid Monday half price night (overcrowded). Come on Thursday when the fish... More

This place is nit authentic. The fish quality is average and on the night I went, they were out of many items. The beer taps consisted of three American beers and on Japanese beer. of course, the Japanese beer keg was kicked and there was not back up. The service was pleasant but non existent at times. Not awful but... More

Sake house has average sushi not any better than going to your local supermarket for same. The decor lacks style and looks more like a cafeteria than a restaurant. We asked for the private room where you sit on the floor and are served however we were told it was closed. One of the people in our group had eaten... More

An excellent sushi/Japanese style restaurant. They have very good sushi and Japanese offerings. This is our go to restaurant for sushi. I don't think I have had an entree other than sushi but I have had some excellent appetizers and salads.

Sake House serves Japanese items with a Chinese flair. The food is more than good enough to make up for the at best mediocre service. You'll want to go at lunch when prices are reasonable. For dinner it is impossible to justify the high prices on either sushi or entrees. Known for "dollar sushi" Monday's but almost nothing is actually... More
