We visited Fernandes Steakhouse on Saturday night because my son recommended it and we wanted to take him there for his birthday. He always told me how great the Rodizio was, so I had to try it.

The best quality steak in NJ! You get what you pay for, and The sangria is delicious! Everything in this restaurant is top quality. I even like the fact that there is valet parking!

The drinks are very well prepared, the place itself is very well decorated and beautiful. The rodizio is great though it lacks of variety of meats. It is a little bit pricey too.

Great and tasty food! They have many options like an excellent rodizio, Portuguese food and great seafood options. It's a bit pricy, but I would recommend for an special event 😀

Valet parking is nice. The ambiance also is very nice. Service is a little lacking and aside from rodizio, the food is just eh. You can go to various other places within the iron bound section that have better for for less money.

We've been coming to Fernandez for many years, including several New Years Eve parties. Most times we leave very satisfied and stuffed. Last time we were here, I'd said that Fernandes had gotten even better. This time not so much. My son and I ordered the Picanha rodizio... which we both felt was excellent and plentiful. However, my wife (and... More

The food was terrific. It is a Brazilian Barbecue and Steak house and they mean STEAK. If you are looking for a 6oz.... More
