HB Japanese Steak & Sushi

Reviewed 20 April 2017

Had our hearts (stomachs?) set on Japanese steak house and headed to the one near our home, forgetting that it's closed on Mondays. Decided on HB. The chef cooked the food at our table, but there was no performance. Most steakhouse chefs have some personality and pizzazz, but not this guy. The timing was poor too, as each person's food was prepared at different times. I got a steak & chicken combo, and nearly finished the steak before the chicken was done. As I finished the chicken, he finally put the veggie side on my plate.

Sake was lukewarm, and they only serve little ones. Prices are higher than our favorite place too. Not likely to return.

One of the better hibachi experiences in the area. Service is average, but pleasant. The show was uninspired. The food was great as always.

Went in at 1230 for lunch and were seated right away at a table by ourselves. Our drink and food order was taken right away and then we sat, and sat and sat!!! After 25 minutes we had to leave. It was ridiculous. Nobody even came by to say sorry we are slow today or give us any update. It appears we were gonna sit until more people came in so the table would fill up. Whatever the reason, it sucked!!! It's a real shame. Management did not seem to care when we left. They simply said ok!! Used to love this place, hope they get better.

We enjoy the lunch special that is offered at HB. The quality of the food is really good.
The cost of the lunch special is very reasonable especially for the amount of food you receive and quality of it. It did not take long for the cook to come to the table after orders were taken.

Great food and fun entertainment, in my opinion better than Benihana and Itchi Bon. Our kids always pick this place when we go out for dinner.
