Description: Ipanema Brazilian Steak House is a Churrascaria in the finest sense of the word. Our twelve authentic cuts and presentations of meat are seasoned with salt and roasted rotisserie-style over mineral coals imported from Brazil, basted continuously by their own natural juices. Served by traditional roving Gauchos, they are complemented by an opulent salad and vegetable bar, delectable desserts and delicious wines, beer, and cocktails.

For meat and all you can eat lovers this is the place in Ocala. Very good and experienced service, nicely decorated and clean. Fabulous salad bar and good wine selection. Solid quality beef in various forms plus some chicken, sausage, pineapple etc etc. Nice for a special occasion or just to get a beef fix. Recommended!

Ipanema Brazilian Steakhouse is awesome. We went there New years eve and the food and service was excellent. Everything was great with the exception of the prime rib. We had to ask for the prime rib and they brought it right to our table but it was so over done that we could not eat it. But everything else was... More

We are big fans of the Brazilian Steakhouse type restaurant. If you have never had one, I suggest this: Do not eat for a few days so you are REALLY hungry....then go here. I read some of the reviews about this restaurant, and so I was very surprised at the service, which was excellent, and the food, which was tasty.... More

My sister and her boyfriend were visiting from Pennsylvania and we wanted to take them to one of our favorite places. As always, the food is excellent. I prefer the sirloin choices and the pineapple is my absolute favorite. They have a wonderful salad bar, as well as soup, rice, etc., but be careful not to fill up on all... More

I had dinner with my wife, my son and daughter in law the other night and I was a little disappoint. This was not my first experience in this kind of restaurant so I knew what to expect. The Brazilian steak houses are known for the very thin slice of meat and here the waiters sliced the meat very thick... More

We had dinner there with 2 other couples. I think it's an excellent pig out joint for the men who really like meat. They just keep bringing it on. For the wives though, it's far to expensive because non of our wives ate enough to justify the price. One of the wives just had the salad bar, but at $25,... More

You can't beat Ipanema for Special Occasions of just for the heck of it. Most unusual Salad Bar items. Fried Pork with the Chimichurri and Jumbo peel and eat Shrimp were our favorite. Many new tastes for us, things I've never seen on a Salad Bar. Yucca Soup was real good. From the grill came a variety of Meats that... More

We love this place for special celebrations. We're not local, so it takes us 45 minutes to get down there, but we always feel it's worth the commute. Attentive staff with great customer service. The "meat train" was never ending with a good variety of meats (lamb, prime rib, top/bottom sirloin, chicken, pork etc.) The best cuts were the seasoned... More
