Description: We miss Brazil. We miss the smell of trees, and the sounds and sights of Carnaval. We miss being in a land where football is played with feet. It's difficult for us to go home though, so we did the next best thing. We brought our home to us and established Rio Steak House. Sit at one of our tables and for a few hours, let us make you forget that you didn't need wings to get here. At Rio Steak House we celebrate the best of Brazilian cuisine, specializing in Brazilian barbecue, Churrascaria. First, help yourself to a variety of offerings from our well-stocked salad bar - some say enough to be a meal of itself. As you're seated, experienced carvers will arrive with succulent skewers full of freshly roasted cuts of meats, precisely separating the best portions for your plate until you won't be able to fit another bite. Our goal was to import an authentic Brazilian experience. Come taste for yourself some of the best of what Brazil has to offer, this time you won't need a passport.

This place is in a quiet out of the way spot, but the food is great and their is lots of it. You turn your card like in most Brazilian stake houses. The salad bar is great and they have some other dishes in warmers that you can help yourself to. Pasta, Fish , Rice and beans ETC. The price... More

Great tip, Andrea! That grilled pineapple is one of our favorites, too. We're thrilled that you loved the food last time. Hope to have you and the family back soon! Until then, Vagmar and Bill More

just nasty. inedible, dirty, flies on the salad bar, smells like a garbage barrel inside, rude staff AND then they overcharged us! NEVER AGAIN!!

We're disappointed, too. That said, we would never overcharge our guests. Unfortunately, when a Groupon expires, we are only able to honor it for the value you paid for it. If you ever have any issues like this, we'd love to work them out in the moment. We're happy when you're happy, so we always try our best to work... More

This was not my first time here but it is going to be my last time. I took my mother and wife here and i'm very unhappy with the results. I'm not a big eater but an average eater but these people don't want to give you your moneys worth. My mother was giving me her meat because it took... More

We're unhappy, too! You brought your family here for a nice meal out, and it sounds like we didn't do our part to make it special.

There are SO many wonderful choices of dining in Plymouth. Skip this one. The servers didn't come around enough at all.. When they did they only served the right side of the table (we had a party of 12). The buffet portion,where you serve yourself, was mediocre. Prices are very high for what you get. The chicken wasn't cooked enough... More

We're disappointed that we let you down last time, Ashlee! We're confused that your entire table didn't get served last time -- there must have been some misunderstanding on our end. As for the chicken, we can assure you that our staff is always careful to fully cook all of the meats we serve. Had you let your waiter know,... More

Trip advisor was the reason we tried this restaurant after a day of touring around historic Plymouth. The food, service, environment and cleanliness of the restaurant and bathroom was all impeccable! If this place was in my hometown of Indianapolis, I'd be back often!

We went to Rio's steak house, after spending a Sunday afternoon in Plymouth. We had talked about a visit for a while and had been to a Brazilian Steak house before. Let's start with parking, it's a small lot with a lot of potential for problems with cars parked in the way of each other (if you have a truck... More

Thanks for taking the time to review your experience with us, Brian. It's disappointing to hear that you didn't have an excellent experience with us.

We tried Rio's after purchasing 2 Groupons. We didn't return after the first visit. Maybe dinner service is different than lunch/early dinner, but our food was definitely lacking. Many of the items served were cold, warm at best. The wait staff was slow, given there were only 2 other parties in the entire restaurant and the food was only okay.... More

I'm sorry if we let you down on those counts last time. It sounds like you may have caught us at an off time -- I'd... More

Fantastic is what we love to hear, Khris! We truly appreciate your kind words and will have to share your compliments with our chefs. That Brazilian Coleslaw is one of our favorites, too. If you find yourself back in Plymouth, we hope you'll come see us again. Take care, Vagmar and Bill More

Great place to dine. One price and all you can eat. Waiters bring over the different meats that have been roasting on skewers. You help yourself to both hot and cold sides. Yummy!
