    Ample seating and an enjoyable atmosphere. We had prompt table service but the meats were nothing special. My wife and I didn't taste much of the flavor in the meats. Their marinade needs adjusting or they need the meats to marinade longer.

    We choose breakers often for groups, a date night, or like tonight with our toddler in tow. We love how responsive the staff is and the food is great! Our little one loves the special plate she gets and the bonchon options here.

    The food was okay, but not worth the price. There were no high chairs, so I had to put my one year old in a booster chair until one was available and that was a mess. It was our first time at Korean bbq & we had no idea what we were supposed to do and there was no direction as to what to do.

    First experience here. We opted for the basic AYCE menu. The selection of food items is not very wide, but good enough. I have issues with sugar marinade, and the server helped me in finding plain items that had no sugar: brisket and spiced pork. I wish it were possible to order the rib eye plain as well. Service was very attentive. Multiple servers came to make sure everything was fine, rotated the meats, and adjusted the temperature of the stove. Overall, the experience was pleasant. It was possible to order multiple times without any problem. Great value for money.

    Restaurant was load due to karaoke we sat as far away as possible but still couldn’t here. Server kept starting foods on the grill then not coming back so my daughter ended up doing the cooking and serving. We were trying to celebrate our daughters birthday. And she chose breakers. It wasn’t bad but it wasn’t a great experience. Probably will chose a different Korean barbecue next time

    The quality of food has gone down. We don’t see ourselves coming back after this experience. We come here for many special famiky Birthdays. Mother’s Day and we all agreed the quality is lacking and disappointing. Things that were included are now extras. We used to live it here.

    Service or lack of was not worth what the bill came out to be. Especially when 20% tip was included. Menu that was given wasn’t even updated to what they owned. There are better KBBQ out there! We just chose this location since we haven’t been. We will not be returning. Save your money and go elsewhere.

    Enjoyed a fantastic dining experience at this restaurant! Had never been before, but wanted to try something new and different for this birthday meal. Our server Edward guided us through our menu options, and we chose the All-you-can-eat option in order to experiment with different foods and preparations. Great choice! Food quality was very good, preparation excellent, and the atmosphere second to none! We really enjoyed ourselves, and we'll be back very soon to enjoy more delights from this fascinating menu!

    Food was good, seems they load you up on the starting meats ti avoid getting to pork belly. We did get to it and enjoyed it. Our host could have smiled more. Seems they don't like giving napkins. Had to ask twice for a table of 5, and only 3 total napkins were delivered. Enjoyed the experience and food.

    The food is amazing. Everything was great except our service. Our particular server kept questioning if we really wanted our choice of meats. He kept say eat this all because if not they (assuming management) charge us ur left overs. Which i understand its to lower waste. But we had maybe 3 little strips of brisket left we were completely stuffed and he said "you need to finish that. Before you leave" My guests and i felt obligated and a sense of force was a bit overwhelming. Other than that it was great food. Also we asked for drinks and he kept forgetting our drinks. We also asked for silverware and he directed us to grab from the table behind us so he didnt have to go get it for us. We were poliet but this experience with the server was extremely frustrating.

    Really enjoyed this trip to Breakers. Reservation was at 6:15 and we were seated right away. Service was wonderful and quick. Food was tasty as usual and the sides were plentiful, waiter even offered us more! They have added a Bibimbap bowl as a choice on the AYCE, website indicates it's for the weekends, we didn't try it this time though. We selected the $39.95 option for dinner, bulgogi and beef steak were our favorites. Looking forward to the next time we choose KBBQ as a dinner option!

    Waiter ~Jimmy~ rushed us the minute we got in giving absolutely NO time to even order a drink or look at the menu. When I complained he said he was new and apologized. But throughout the meal he never let up his pace so I am certain those were management's instructions. The Galbi and the brisket were flavorless, and the brisket, especially was cooked to a crisp. And don't even get me started on the banchan side dishes. He brought ONE little dish of Kimchi, they had run out of cucumbers and there was this dish of little pieces of BROCCOLI - seriously??? The only thing decent was the noodle salad. The ~mandu~ or dumplings were deep fried to a crisp and probably purchased at H-Mart. Waiters were actually RUNNING back and forth between tables, our entire party felt rushed, as if we were at the races, and the constant "are you done, are you done" didn't help either. I will not go to this place again - ever. And by the way, I am Korean!

    I made a reservation through Open Table weeks prior to dining. I received many confirmations up to the very day of our visit. However, when we arrived, they claimed they didn't have a reservation under my name. I showed them my many receipts to prove that I HAD made a reservation, and they finally brought us to a table. Many servers passed by our table but none stopped, and we kept trying to get anyone's attention, but to no avail. We waited at the table for 25 (!!!) minutes before my husband finally got up and asked when someone was going to acknowledge our presence. It's like they forgot about us completely. They didn't even bring us water, we had to ask for it after waiting all that time. When they finally took our order, the food came pretty quickly and was good. But we had been waiting for so long, we had to rush through eating in order to make our movie. We had great service during our last visit, but this time was a disaster. We had out-of-town guests excited to experience KBBQ, and felt terrible that the service was so lacking.

    Our server was great and the food tasted amazing! Price was a little much considering the add ons was beef ribs and shrimp but they put a cap on the amount you could get with that option! All and all I had a good experience! Will return but will go with standard option next time!
