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.

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

With a HUGE 'salad bar' (a misnomer for sure, as it had beef stroganoff, pork black beans, and rice and garlic mashed potatoes, AND salmon, and exotic things like stuffed eggplant slices), TWELVE different meats, and grilled pineapple, it was a gorging experience. The waiters, coming around with spears of meat (prime rib, filet mignon, various steak types, lamb chops,... More

We went to this restaurant for a birthday and we were beyond pleased! We made reservations on a Tuesday night but that wasn't necessary. When we arrived we were greeted and seated immediately. The cuts of meat were extremely fresh, as well as the vegetable bar. As soon as you flip your card to "green" the meat doesn't stop coming... More

This all-you-can-eat style restaurant has a great atmosphere and the different meats are really good, as is the "salad bar". However, I find it to be too pricey and that will probably keep me from becoming a regular patron. ...

Caution! Your appetite and your stomach will be tested to capacity. On reflection I would say only take half of what you want because coming up is another plate that will overwhelm. The price is high and considering all the preparation and the cuts of meat you would be hard pressed to duplicate this feast. We started with the appetizer... More
