This is a great small place to go for a quiet, intimate dinner with romantic, dim lighting. My husband and I have gone often and feel that they do not seat you right next to others. The consideration for privacy is much appreciated and the servers have always been kind and attentive without pushing you to order or interrupting your conversation. They are very knowledgable about the menu. There is a large variety of sushi, as well as noodle and fried meat/vegetable dishes. Naked Fish is my go to for birthday dinners and holidays. I have never had a problem with crowds, noisy customers or children kicking the back of our booth like you see at many larger chain restaurant locations! Naked Fish may not have a hibachi grill like Tokyo Steakhouse but the atmosphere and food is wonderful. We see several Japanese speaking businessmen dining here, especially when they have a lunch buffet. I highly recommend trying the green tea or azuki (sweet red bean) ice cream when they have it. Many westerners may find the sound of it odd but It's amazing!
The food & prices are great and a true bargain considering portion sizes but if you hate noise please stay away! Every time we have tried to go, and maybe it's just very bad luck... We always seem to be seated next to screaming children whose dinner should have been hours ago or large, foul-mouthed groups who linger in boothes all night. The quality and low prices can unfortunately lead to bad company. Never had a problem with service or food at all but hate feeling that my friends must "yell" or lean in close to have a conversation! Even servers have apologized for the atmosphere without us making a complaint or asking to be moved. Top marks for the food, service, portions and prices but the atmosphere can be awful at times.
Hickory Falls is one of our favorite local places to take family and friends. They have a nice variety of food from salads, chicken, beef, seafood and pasta dishes. I think even the pickiest of eaters would be satisfied with their chicken tenders, hamburgers, or club sandwiches. Most of their dishes would be considered American with some having a southwestern, Mediterranean or Hawaiian influence. My mother in law and I loved the gyros but I believe they may have been a seasonal dish. The atmosphere is cozy like a lodge with dim lighting and a stone and lumber interior. If the timing is right, I feel this place can be one of smyrna's more romantic nights out.
