"...both the clam chowder and the cocktail shrimp's cocktail sauce were overly hot and spicy - unnecessarily, in my opinion. The overuse of hot peppers om such normally sweet items detracts from the wonderful natural flavor, and should be avoided at all costs."

Renowned Chef Tim McKee, 2009 James Beard award winner for “Best Chef Midwest”, designed the core menu for Sea Change which focuses on sustainable seafood, highlighting fisheries that use environmentally responsible methods of gathering and farming seafood. The menu also includes a number of items under the heading “Not Fish” as well as late night offerings of small plates and raw bar selections. <br />

Welcome to Benihana and a dining experience unlike any other! If you’ve never been to Benihana before, let us tell you what you can expect: Our guests are seated at communal tables in groups of eight to ten, where your personal chef will perform the ancient art of Teppanyaki. Watch as we slice and dice, preparing a meal that will dazzle your eyes as well taste buds, whether you choose mouth-watering steak, tender chicken or succulent seafood. <br><br> Or you can visit our sushi lounge where a talented sushi chef will prepare the freshest sashimi, maki and signature sushi rolls with the same flair that made Benihana a legend in Japanese cuisine. Smaller tables and more intimate seating is available in the lounge or bar on a first-come, first-served basis, whether you’re looking to enjoy one of our delicious Benihana Teppanyaki entrées or our amazing selection of sushi!

"Frantic, loud, but delicious. The cook was entertaining and the food was outstanding, but the staff (greeters and server) were pleasant, but indifferent. One seemed to be but a number among many in their eyes."

"From John at the door to the very friendly Mary and Corrie as our servers, to the superb shrimp cocktail to the unsurpassably exquisite Oysters Rockefeller to the scrumptious Maryland soft crab, THIS is definitely THE place for consistently good, FRESH seafood! I try to go there as often as I can, and I am never disappointed! Hats off to all of this establishment's"

"The best steaks and seafood to be had for miles around, and the world's best clam chowder, bar none! Laura was again a top-notch server: friendly, attentive, speedy, and accurate - who could ask for more? This establishment consistently satisfies and delights, and I heartily recommend it to all! MMMM - MMMMM!"
