If you are looking for a unique dining experience, with a fun and relaxing atmosphere, look no further than Sumo Japanese Steakhouse & Sushi Bar.

 "We want customers to have an authentic Japanese dining experience,” says Sumo General Manager Joe Brady. "We pride ourselves on freshness, quality, and presentation.”

 

Whether you are looking for a romantic evening with someone special, the perfect

place for a business lunch, or room for a large group of friends to celebrate amomentous event, Sumo offers an ideal upscale dining environment with affordable prices for virtually any occasion. Sumo has 14 traditional Japanese Teriyaki grills, on which their expert hibachi-style chefs use fresh ingredients to prepare dazzling meals right in front of you, with captivating style and flair.  Offering a dinner theater experience where food takes center stage, you can choose from an extensive menu of mouthwatering options like Sukiyaki or New York Strip steak, Salmon, Swordfish, Mahi Mahi, and more. Each is served with fried rice, onion soup, a garden salad, assorted vegetables, and two jumbo shrimp. 

 

For those wanting to more than just one main course, there’s a large variety of combinations you can choose from. The Triple Combo, which is a flavorful combination of steak, chicken, and shrimp, or the Sumo Special, with includes filet mignon, shrimp, cold water lobster tail, and succulent sea scallops, are just two of the popular menu items which offer portions large enough to be shared.  In addition to the amazing hibachi, Sumo has some of the best sushi and sashimi you’ll find on the Gulf Coast.

Pop in for a drink with friends or even solo, and order from over forty different beers including various local brews, as well as Sapporo, for which Sumo is the only place on the Coast where the Japanese beer is served on tap. 

Besides a large array of different beers, you can also sample their signature cocktails, martinis, sake, and plum wines. A standout is Bar Manager Bridgett Lovelace’s creation, the Wasabi Ginger Bloody Mary, which is sweeter than a traditional bloody, and quite tasty.   No matter what day you visit Sumo Japanese Steakhouse & Sushi Bar, you’re bound to find great food and fun.
