We took our son to this restaurant to celebrate his junior year at Duke University. He had never experienced a Brazilian steakhouse and I am so glad this one was his first! The food was terrific, the atmosphere very nice and the service was gracious and welcoming. I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough! Save room for the top sirloin.... More

This was my first trying a Brazilian steakhouse and I was beyond excited to go. I enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Meats were fresh and delicious and so was the salad bar. I just wish there was more variety of salads and veggies. Fresh fruit would have been a great addition. I will be going back.

The dinner menu included a variety of hors d'oeuvre and hot dishes as well as a selection of red and white meats grilled on a... More

We just had dinner at this restaurant as part of restaurant week(usually a 3 course meal for $30). Customer service, including the manager at this restaurant is sorely deficient. Would not recommend going here if you are used to any class or an understanding of how to handle a reasonable question about the bill. The person who seated us explained... More

We have eaten here a few times. We only come here when we have out of town family visiting that have never eaten at a Brazilian steakhouse. It is a very cool experience and a definite must try at least once. The food here is good and the salad bar offers gourmet options. That being said, for the money, I... More

The food was delicious and service was excellent until I got the bill. My advice is a simple one. Ask to see the menu or ask how much the buffet and main course is before the waiter leaves your party. The bill may open your eyes. My falt for listening to the introduction by the main attendant and not asking... More

Great food and great drinks (caipirinhas). You cant get enough of the juicy meets and huge salad bar. The atmosfere is amazing, very cozy and great for any occasion; romantic dinners, family out even buisness meetings.

A great salad bar for me: lots of meat for him. This is a nice Brazilian Restaurant. We visited on a Saturday night and it was not overly crowded. We have been to other Brazilian Restaurants I they very very noisy...this one was not noisy due to the seating arrangements and the decor...I appreciate this as I like to be... More
