Great Food

Was here with my gf was a new thing for me but the meat was great had a nice selection of sides was a bit pricey but will be back just not often due to cost. Servers are great and always there to help or offer ideas on what to try

I have never ate at a restaurant like this. My wife and I are here for Valentine's day. We were quite impressed with the meat selection and the huge salad bar options. A little pricy, but worth the experience, like a twice a year kind of thing maybe. Will eat here again. They are on point with their reservations too

I've been to several of this type restaurant around the country. This one was excellent. Really good salad bar and lots of different grilled meats. The service was great and my waitress never stopped smiling.

This is a Brazilian style BBQ Buffet that also serves from a menu that includes pizza and other items if desired. There are 3 basic ways to enjoy the BBQ; 1) Salad bar only, and the salad bar is extensive enough to easily make a meal of it 2) 'Basic' meats (and BBQ Pineapple) which includes many beef selections, poultry...

The whole experience was great. Very well run restaurant with a nice bar and live music on the weekends. The music was a blues band that was good. The food was even better! The unique way that the food is served is something to take in. The Gauchos come around and offer food right off the skewer. Truly a great... More

The food was really good. Worth spending the wee bit extra to get the seafood. The food service was great but drinks were kind of slow.

If you are an avid meat eater, this is the place for you! Sadly, there are very few things on the menu that are aside from the "Brazillian" style faire, and they are poorly done, at best. I ordered a chicken dish with rice and steamed veggies. My food arrived last, the whole plate was covered in a greasy, congealed... More

Compares admirably to Brazilian restaurants in Central and South America. The food was great, the experience authentic. An excellent spot.

I met a supplier for a business dinner. I nice bar with a good selection of wine and a variety of specialty beer. The salad bar has more choices than you typically find with some vary delicious pasta salads. All choices of meat are brought to you table on a skews by a gaucho server. You can have as much...
