Japanese
Thank you for visiting Kenichi Izakaya Carbondale. An Izakaya is a type of informal Japanese pub. At sake breweries during the late 18th century, people in Japan began using sake kegs as stools and snacks were served. This small plates menu was designed to encourage sharing amongst friends and family. Food is prepared in multiple kitchens and arrives as it is ready to ensure freshness. We make the majority of our menu in house, from scratch, and use locally sourced ingredients whenever possible.
We offer full sushi bar, kitchen and bar.

    Our reservation was for 3 on a very busy Friday evening - when our guest became ill and we had to adjust numbers I also asked if we could possibly adjust our reservation time to much earlier. The hostess I spoke with on the phone as well as in person was helpful and as accommodating and polite as could be. Heather, our waitress was friendly and knowledgeable about everything on the menu and helpful giving guidance when we asked. Oh and the food - simply fresh and delicious and amazing.

    The experience was wonderful! Even if the food was terrible we still would have had the best time because our server was SO funny and amazing. Unfortunately I don't remember his name but he had a bun and a beard. The food was excellent, and the atmosphere was inviting and fun. Next time we're in Carbondale we will definitely come back!

    Cozy and just energetic enough of an atmosphere. Lighting and music are perfect, spacing of tables allows for private conversation. Very attentive service, fresh nightly specials, food is consistently delicious. Warm greeting from friendly hostess. Thanks for another great evening, Izakaya. By far the best dining experience in Carbondale!

    The entrées are small so be prepared to $$$ if you arrive very hungry. We usually buy lots of apps and split them. Our server was fantastic.. some items were slow coming out but they were busy. We Love Izakaya and go a few times a year. Bill for 4 with tip was $450 but we were hungry!!

    We loved our first dinner at izakaya! We went as a family for my birthday and the food was amazing. The service was a little slow, but it was 1st Friday and the restaurant was full, so that wasn’t a surprise. We will just budget more time next time we go. Prices were as expected. We will be back!

    The shrimp was partially cooked in my brothers noodle bowl. (He doesn’t like raw fish) I tried it and didn’t care for the texture/flavor combination either. I also wish they sold a smaller bottle of the Snow Maiden. A large bottle is too much for my own indulgence.
