Each time I've been there, the bill is wrong!!!! If your notice it being wrong, keep the receipt & turn it over to the Indiana Attorneys generals office. If they get enough complaints, it will be addressed.

Family and I went on a weekend because they opened earlier than our usual brazilian steakhouse in Chicago. We arrived when they opened and there were quite a few other parties there as well. The salad bar reminds me of what you would see at a church event. Lettuce from a bag, some cubed cheese, pickles, salami and no bread.... More

We've eaten here before ( tried a sampler plate at the bar) and thought it was tasty so we decided to take my father in law here for his birthday. Unfortunately our first full dining experience was not so great and chances are very good that we won't be coming back. First of all it is not a good value... More

This was our second time going to Gaucho's. We have been very happy with the wait staff both times. I would suggest letting them be open for a little bit before you get there. We came in when they opened and it took a little longer for them to start bringing out the food. The Brazilian cuts and bacon wrapped... More

ok, so we heard about this place when talking to other people who live/work in the area. From Crown Point its a bit away but we figured if it was 1/2 as good as they say.... So we almost missed it going down HWY 30 (thank goodness for GPS). Small parking lot and boy was it full, which is always... More

First-timers @ Gaucho's - "Birthday boy" thought it was good, never had Brazillian style before, but all 3 "girls" ordered just a" skewer of chicken". Our chicken was served 38 Minutes after the guys started eating.Yes, nearly 40 minutes! Several of our family members were completely finished with their meal before we were even served. We made inquiry 3 times... More

The service is wonderful, the salad bar is one of the best in our area and the variety is beyond compare. Free dinner to a birthday person (the month of the birthday, does not have to be the day). Love this restaurant and treat my out-of-town guests when possible.

My wife and I have been several times and each time we say "no more". We decided to give it another chance thinking it was something isolated or maybe we misunderstood their pricing. We have finally come to the conclusion that this is an overpriced smoke and mirrors dig. Portraying itself as a high end restaurant that is just a... More

The food was alright but the service was extremely slow. Had multiple people come up and ask if I was waiting for anything particular and it still took about 15 minutes just for it to come out. Brazilian steakhouses are supposed to have the food continuously circulating around, this was not the case here. Fogo de chao has similar prices... More
