Walker describes Shogun as “a destination type of restaurant.”

 “The look of their buildings is also beautiful; they pay good attention to detail,” he said. “I couldn’t be more excited. The experience at Shogun will draw people from a lot further around than only Alton. Right now they are taking an empty building. It is a big pickup for Alton.”

Walker said dining at a Shogun Restaurant is highly entertaining, with chefs cooking sushi, shrimp right in front of you.”

The master chefs dazzle customers with their samurai-like swordsmanship as they skillfully slice, dice, juggle, and entertain, while preparing delicious entrees on a sizzling Teppanyaki grill.

Walker said he thinks Shogun will begin working on the old Golden Corral building in the near future and the company will have some permits that have to be filed and the liquor license will have to be obtained.

“I think they will get in there as soon as they possibly can,” he said. “I am thinking they may be open by the first of the year.”
