“Awesome but burned down”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

We ate here on prior trips but it was recently damaged by fire and is presently being rebuilt. We were told it will be ready early next year.

“Pricy but worth it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

Located on Caroline Street in Key West,Braza Lena is easy to get to from anywhere in town. I have been here four times and have never been unhappy. The food is fantastic, plentiful and just keeps coming. This is a traditional Brazilian Restaurant. The servers just keep bringing food to the table. Each server has a different cut of meat, including Sirloin, Filet, Bacon wrapped chicken, Lamb Chops, Pork and the list goes on and on, all perfectly seasoned . You can eat until you burst or stop at anytime and rest. You have a small round card on the table with two colors...red for stop serving and green for continue. The servers know when to bypass you if your card shows red..It took me awhile to get the hang of it so my plate piled up like a skyscraper the first time I went. They also have a very large salad bar with everything from sliced meats, cheeses, artichokes, salad greens, too numerous to name all the items...You can just order from the salad bar, or order just the meats, or get the complete meal which includes both the meats and salad bar. It's pricey, for two of us with the complete meal, two alcohol drinks, came to just about $100 with tip. It's only open for dinner and I always make reservations although the past few times I went around 6PM it wasn't busy..This is a treat, maybe not an every day dining spot but if you want great food and have an appetite you have to try this restaurant

“Braza Lena Pleasa!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

This was another restaurant we visited during my first trip to the Florida Keys.
Happy to say this was a great experience. The food was fresh, healthy, beautiful variety.
The service was prompt, friendly and kept the food coming!
They are constantly coming around with different fresh selections of meat, they have a wonderful way of making it simple whether or not you would like some of that selection put on your plate, and you don't have to utter a word.
The buffet is stocked with imported cheeses, salads, olives and much more!
Fun & Delicious!

“GREAT FOOD”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

Visited here on a quiet evening in November. Was a bit worried about the freshness of the food as it was already laid out as a large sqlad bar and we were the only customers on arrival. However, the food was lovely and the staff really friendly and attentive. Hub by was pleased as they also had Guinness at the bar!

“This Location Is Closed Indefinitely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

Braza Lene Brazilian Steakhouse in Islamorada FL is closed indefinitely due to a fire. This fire occured within the last three weeks. This is quite sad as their food/salad bar was the best ever! I am sorry to be the barer of sad tiddings.

Due to smoke damage, both the Whale Harbor Seafood Buffet & Braza Leña Brazilian Steakhouse in Islamorada are currently closed. We are working diligently to repair the damages and plan to reopen in approximately 2 months. During our construction you can still visit any of our sister properties:

*Wahoo's Bar & Grill located at Whale Harbor Marina - Mile Marker 83.5
*Braza Leña Key West - 421 Caroline St.
*Hog Heaven - Mile Marker 85.3

We look forward to seeing you all very soon and wish everyone a Safe & Happy Holiday Season!
