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!"

"The best steak and seafood to be found anywhere - their award-winning clam chowder is truly nectar of the gods great! Moist and tender steak (aged 28 days!) is impossible to beat. They do ALL the little things right here, so that means we always get one HUGELLY enjoyable dining experience. Laura, our top-notch server, is very friendly, fast, accurate, and efficient, so DO ask for her if she's available -you won't be disappointed! I give Porterhouse a very deserved 5 star recommendation. They are truly masters in their field!"

"They do all the little things perfectly here. Their food, including soups, salads, sauces, appetizers, bread, and desserts (as well as entrees), is always top-notch. Christian is the cream of the crop as far as servers are concerned - there are none better! I have been a very pleased patron since 1996, and I will continue to go there, enthusiastically!"

"Great food and serve, but drink prices are ridiculously and needlessly way too high! $10.50 each for Manhattans is WAY over the top! They had better re-evaluate their drink pricing before I'll ever return!"
