This place was average. I looked up the menu online and saw a ton of choices for meats as well as sides at the buffet bar. We were disappointed in both. Maybe there is some disclosure I missed on their website but we only had maybe 10 meat choices where as they show nearly double that online. Same with the... More

This place was a little quiet when we went, which was surprising. We thought that this might impact the variety that we would experience, but it didn't. We liked the selection and were able to try new things. The salad bar is great- Don't fill up on it too much though!

I went there with an adult nephew to celebrate Christmas. The food was good. The service was very good. I was disappointed in the atmosphere. We were in a side dining room and were there was only one other couple. I think it would have been better to be in with other groups. There was no music. No tablecloth. Did... More

I have been to this type of restaurant in several cities over the years, and am glad to have finally tried the Milwaukee version. While Chicago may be a little fancier, it is also significantly more expensive and not that much better. The best part for me is the variety and selection. While I like several kinds of steaks, chops,... More

My wife and I went here recently after finding a coupon to reduce the cost (it isn't cheap), and it was amazing! Not only were there a lot of different cuts of meat available, including multiple types of beef, chicken, lamb, ham and fish, but they were some of the best cooked and flavored cuts of meat we've ever had....

My husband and I went here with another couple on a Thursday night. Us, along with I think the majority of the restaurant, had a great value on a groupon so it was very busy. We made reservations, however, they were way behind due to it being the last day to use the Groupon. Because of this we were seated... More

The Rodizio Grill is a great opportunity to savor a Brazilian Steak House in Milwaukee. The choices of Grilled Meats are plenteous and good. The Salad Bar is refreshing. When they bring the Rice and Beans to the table, I'm home. The lunch is quite reasonable.

Four of us dined on a Saturday evening, using a Groupon offer. The restaurant was very busy. After a slow start in service the meat starting arriving and our servers were very good all evening. The meat quality was very good and the salad bar had an extensive selection. A fun place to try for a different dining experience.

Took my son and his girlfriend payed full price. The salad bar was fine. I especially liked the kale salad. The meat servers however were terrible with the exceptions of Marshall and John.
