Hello Pam- I am so sorry you ran into empty dishes on our salad bar. We are always working to keep our famous salad bar stocked and I am sorry you found it low. Our salad bar has quite a following and most people boast its about its variety, value, and say "it's a meal in itself" - I am... More

Very nice place. Comfortable atmosphere, linen tablecloths and napkins. We went for my son's birthday with 9 of us. Made reservations ahead of time so that helped and I would suggest that. The salad bar is self-serve so that was great. The meat comes around often so don't think you are going to miss out on something; if you pass... More

Typical Brazilian restaurant with good meet on skewers cut and served at your table. Sides were pretty good. Two words for the after affect - meat coma :-)

Be sure to go hungry because the food is definitely something to enjoy. We had been at several ole restaurants in the Orlando area, but we really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere here and we didn't feel rushed to get through the meal so they could sit someone else. Great experience and our out of town friends really enjoyed the experience.

This is the best salad bar in Ocala. Beautiful presentation and a wide variety of choices. Much much more than just salad and fixings. The main course is the carnivore choices. These are wonderful and as much as you can eat. The servers come to the table frequently and do not have to be called. The baked pineapple is a... More

Ipanema is bit on the pricey side, however, there is a less expensive option. The restaurant does serve lunch on Fridays. It is about half the price of the dinner menu, but, keep in mind that the full dinner menu is not available at lunch. However, it's a great way to see if you like the food and want to... More

I took my team of 8 here for dinner as a Xmass party... Some of the steaks are amazing but as everything else some are not, the chicken legs are not up to standard for that place, maybe getting a different type of meat..

The major problem is atmosphere. The tables are too close together. The items on the salad bar are excellent, but with the tight quarters and guys running around with meat its a chore to navigate and way too chaotic. I've dined at a Brazilian steak house in Vegas a couple of times and you felt you were in an upscale... More

Ipanema Brazilian Steak House is a Churrascaria in the finest sense of the word. Our twelve authentic cuts and presentations of meat are seasoned with salt and roasted rotisserie-style over mineral coals imported from Brazil, basted continuously by their own natural juices. Served by traditional roving Gauchos, they are complemented by an opulent salad and vegetable bar, delectable desserts and delicious wines, beer, and cocktails.
