About Camp BBQ
Camp Restaurant is a small and lively eatery, where we mainly serves Yakiniku, a Japanese term meaning "grilled meat". Our tables are equipped with grills for our patrons to cook their own foods. At Camp, we offer various cuts of quality meats, from Kobe ox tongue, rib eye, to more favorful skirt steak. Veggies are also great on the grill too. Mushrooms, asparagus, and corn are some of the popular items to cook yourself a delicious feast. Our drinks include a selection of ice cold draft beer, sake and fruit slushies. One not to miss is the traditional BBQ dessert Smore.

Camp BBQ Ratings and Reviews
Surprisingly we were the only 2 customer during the heart of dinner time on a weekday. The food came out quickly of course since we cooked our own food and we were the only customers. We ordered the mushroom medley, scallops (6 pieces), filet mignon (4 pieces), duck breast (8 pieces) and the Kobe sampler. Keep in mind that each order of meat is about 3 oz - 3.5 oz. The quality of meat was good and flavorful, but very tiny portion. We ended our dinner with a mango sticky rice cream brulee.
Overall, this was an experience that didn't keep us full through the night and left a $60 hole in my pocket for 2 people.
My husband and I were pleasantly surprised with the BBQ items we ordered. The only downside was the chicken kara age appetizer, which was not authentic. I know because I cook this and gauge Japanese restaurants with this dish. This restaurant is not a true Japanese yakiniku, but we would still return because they still do a great job with the BBQ/grill items.
Great meat quality. Definitely try the Kobe kalbi! Kobe toro, Kobe rib fingers, spicy pork all excellent as are the more standard cuts (filet, ribeye, NY, etc...). Very good food & drink for a reasonable price and super high quality. Watermelon slush drink is super refreshing & tastes like fresh watermelon.
...excellent HH and late-night HH deals, quality cuts of meat in addition to well-prepped grillable dishes. The only bummer about this place is the very lackluster service. Most times I've eaten here the waitstaff seemed disinterested in providing service and were actually on the brink of annoyance when ordering more food/drinks. This would be a solid 4/5-star dining experience if they just paid better attention to their customers!
I thought a change of pace for Valentine's Day was in order so we decided to try Camp BBQ. Yelpers gave it an above average review so we were excited to check it out. Unfortunately, everything came up short. The service was nonexistent and we were mostly ignored throughout the entire "dining" experience. When the party who was seated 15 minutes after us got their order in its entirety, that was the last straw. Done. See ya. I'm sure other people have had a fantastic time at this place, but you will not get my business ever Camp BBQ nor my recommendation. I am looking forward to telling my friends, co-workers, or anybody who will listen about my awful experience at your establishment.
This is my second time having dinner at Camp BBQ and it did not disappoint. My favorite appetizer is the "chip&dip" it's fried wontons with a delicious beef dip. The thing I love about this place is that your not waiting long to get your food because they bring the main course raw right to your table, so you can cook it on the grill that's in the middle of your table. So you'll always eat your food right of the grill...hot, no need to rush the eating process you can cook a few pieces at a time. They have a great selection of thinly cut meats and some veggies to grill. They have a nice selection of beverages, beer, wine, sake and fruit drinks. The ambiance is casual but I was on a date so I dressed up and still felt the dinner was fun and romantic as you tend to feed each other in the process, but it would also be fun with a group. It gives couples, family's or groups a more interactive experience at dinner. The service is great, they are very polite and pleasant. Price is definitely surprisingly reasonable, but my only regret is that both times I've been there the food was so good that I didn't have room to try their version of smores...oh well it just means I have to keep going back till I do. I would recommend this experience to everyone. Definitely worth trying.
this place came recommended to us by a friend who works at a high-end restaurant. We are quite surprised when we finally arrived. The service was incredibly slow, we were one of two tables in the entire restaurant over two hours. The food was pretty tasty, but the cuts of meat were the cheapest possible, and everything was very very greasy. It was okay, but I won't go back on purpose.
I thought this place would be good for a big group but the lighting was dim. However great service and atmosphere (you can put your jackets under the chair to avoid having it smell). Food is decent, but the quality of meat isn't as high as reviewers say. Would only recommended coming for happy hour as well.
I was a bit nervous about coming here because of some questionable reviews, but I couldn't be happier with my experience at Camp BBQ. The last time I had a similar dining experience I was in Japan. The appetizers provided a variety of flavor, the meats were delicious and very tender, and the vegetables were as appetizing as the rest of the meal. It looked like they had a pretty good happy hour menu as well. I can't wait to come back to Camp BBQ. What a treat!
Excellent food and and a fun and interactive time cooking on the table grill.
Perfect night for a group and great value for good size portions of quality meat, seafood and vegetables.
Servers could have been a little more attentive in filling water and taking additional orders.
This place has been open only 10 months. When we got there we were the only ones for the first hour or so. It was a bit weird at first especially since the waitress didn't come over for like 10 minutes to ask us if we wanted any drinks. But after we got some food rolling in everything was great. Excellent meats, veg and apps! and smores for dessert! I hope this place starts to get some attention and business because it sure was delicious I would definitely go back again if im ever craving to grill my own meat! Hanger steak, spicy sausages, and pork belly were the best, and asian greens too! They also played a lot of Rihanna, and top 2000's and 90's hits almost annoying and almost amazing we could have done karaoke!!!!
I love it here. There are so many excellent things to order. All the proteins arrive at the table raw, and you grill them yourself right there. You can order salads and wraps etc. to go with what you've grilled. It's great for a big group because you can try some of everything. We even had a few vegetarians with us and there was plenty for them to eat. It gets a little expensive, so we only go for special occasions.
Don't forget to order the Smore's! Sometimes we even get two rounds of them. Get a group together, order a couple bottles of sake, and grill up a great meal!
Japanese version of Korean BBQ, affordable, more variety, fun and tasty. Warm and helpful staff, nice selection of beers on tap and sakes to imbibe. Ambiance has potential if they'd just dim the lighting.
Surprised it's not busier already. Suspect it will be soon... Ox tongue GOOD!
