The food was very bland and the chef at the hibachi grill was not entertaining in the least, nor was he very friendly and was a man of few words.

Pricey but solid choice for sushi and sashimi. Nice location. Go during happy hour specials or be prepared for a big bill.

The experience is always good at Rock Lobster. I have taken numerous guests there for lunch or dinner. My only complaint is it tends to be really cold inside. They leave the garage doors open too much in the winter, and keep the AC cranked to what feels like 60 degrees in the summer. I always take a sweater.

Watch for live music and enjoy!

Happy hour from 3-6 is awesome. So many of the sushi rolls are half off? Drinks were very good and our server Johnny was excellent! Outside seating was fabulous! We didn’t do the teppan yaki, but it’s really good too! We like to go here every time we’re near Chandler, AZ

This is a hidden gem of a restaurant. Their specialty sushi rolls are awesome with generous portions. Manic Monday is a deal - 1/2 off all sushi rolls. The lollipop roll and dragon roll are exquisite. Two rolls and crab puffs are enough for 2 people. They also have teppanyaki and lunch specials. Oh, did I forget to mention the lava cake!!!! And they have lunch specials including bento boxes.

Best Sushi in the area!

We drive 50 miles approx round trip just to eat here.

Our party was inside waiting, no one told us anything more than they are waiting for people to leave so they can clean our table.

We had a reservation for 6pm and the app does not allow you to pick teppanyaki or regular table. We wanted the teppanyaki and the hostess said we had to wait another 45 minutes. She had no concern about the error and made no effort to help. Very poor customer service. I have been here several times and love the food but due to this rude hostess me and my family will never return.

Went there for the first time for my spouses birthday celebration. Drove an hour from the west valley to go to your establishment and had the worst experience. I have heard lots of good things about this restaurant and ended up highly disappointed. I didn’t feel welcomed or wanted and nobody really cared about giving us a great experience. Will never go back it’s not worth the trip.

WOW!!! Amazing food and service! We have gone to Hibachi style restaurants for years for special occasions! Rock Lobster is at the top of our list now! Every item in our meals was prepared to perfection, from the fresh salad with delicious dressing, the amazingly well seasoned soup, the succulent shrimp, excellently prepared fried rice, perfectly cooked lobster, steak and chicken, and the amazing tempura ice cream for the birthday boys! We cannot wait to come back again! I also want to give kudos to the bar server and our talented chef, I only wish I had gotten their names! Bravo!!

Went to Rock Lobster for dinner. The chef was ok - not as much showmanship as other teppanyaki places we have been. Servers were poor - didn’t ask my husband if he wanted another saki. The hot tea had a strange flavor - wouldn’t recommend getting it. Food was unbelievably salty!!! The couple next to us didn’t eat there meal at all. I ate mine but the only thing I tasted was salt on my teriyaki beef and vegetables. The shrimp tasted like lemon juice. Will not go again.

Very good waitress, busy and a little bit of a wait to order food but she made sure we got water as soon as we sat down. She was very pleasant and service was on point not too much of a bother but observant. Also food was super fast which is awesome. We are sure to return. It was our second visit.

Have eaten there several times before , and it has always been quite enjoyable. This was my first time to try something other than their always excellent sushi, and the beef yakisoba did not disappoint. The texture of the noodles was very good, as was the seasoning of both noodles and beef. Topped it off with a Sapporo draft. Reasonable prices, good service, a pleasant dining experience.
