I came in with a plan to just enjoy from the 30+ selection of salads and drinks. I came out with a tummy full of not just salads, but also the most tender, juicy, and yummy prime cuts of beef. Father, forgive me for I have sinned!

This restaurant is great! The food is very good and the service is without question but having to wait sometimes for the servers makes one wonder if it is done on purpose. It was my understanding ALL meats would be circulated and if you requested certain cuts they would be served But it seemed that because our party was Black... More

Very good salad bar, meat is perfect. Could have more side dish, but they server baked bananas, and "pão de queijo". Our American and European collages enjoyed very much. They also served New York style cheese cake.

Yeah, they have a nice, fresh salad bar. Lots of good choices if you love salads. But this place is for the meats, i.e., Brazilian bbq. You know how it works. The protein keeps coming as long as you want it to. Bone apetit.

Crazy amounts of terrific food! My fave is still the ribeye and then the bananas!!! The staff are very quick and very good and the drinks and food were all non-stop! Thankfully the control disc flips to red and it all calms down a bit...

We eat here for award luncheons and birthdays. It often gets picked by who is choosing. Nice salad bar. Not the amazing thing at Fogo De Chao but it's considerably cheaper than Fogo. If you're not familiar with the experience you are given a coaster that is green on one side (bring me more food) and red on the other.... More

Attended business presentation at Estancia with a group of approximately 25 people. The room provided was comfortable with good acoustics, and the service was excellent. We started with the salad bar which was good, but I did expect more. Hot rolls were served along with fried grits- very greasy. We did not fill-up on these items as we were awaiting... More

To start off, I grew up in Brazil as a kid and would frequent Churrascarias (this type of restaurant) often. Estancia brings me back to my childhood and then some. It's truly authentic from the great salad bar, sides, service, meats and off course the somewhat cheesy way they try to up sell you on drinks during and after the... More

My husband and I came here to celebrate our 10th Wedding Anniversary. As soon as we sat down a waiter came over with a ready made tray of alcoholic beverages. After declining I ordered a water. The server replied "One free water" "Anything else" I was immediately embarrassed. Upon obligation I ordered a Jack and Coke which was mostly Jack... More
