We enjoyed it. If you like trying different types of meats this is the place for you. The different steak options were amazing! A great salad bar but it isn't a typical salad bar. Very different choices. It is rather expensive.

The reviews were mixed. My wife and I went here July 4th weekend. Service was awesome. Sampled a huge variety of meats. Every sample tasted great. Salad bar has ample and well stocked. No complaints.

You better come here hungry and ready to eat a lot of meat! Going to a Brazilian steakhouse is always an awesome experience. For a flat fee you receive as much food as you want. At this restaurant it is about $50pp, so it's not cheap but definitely worth it. You each get a round disc with one side that... More

A wonderful dining experience with various cuts beef and lamb served at our table. My favorite cuts were the leg of lamb, lamb chops and the house sirloin. I recommend the Brazilian BBQ sauce.

Nice place but good to be aware that it is a formula-style restaurant and not so much a-la-carte which we expected. Staff is friendly and offers different selections of meat during the evening whereby some of the premium meats are on request. Overall, the meat quality is good. Good wine selection.
