Great food and great service. This is the place you go hungry and receive great service. They have many different kinds of yummy meat and sides. Also important to note that you get more personal service unlike franchise restaurants. Highly recommend!

The assorted skewered and seated meats were very enjoyable, rotisserie pineapple a big score, but salad bar greens left a bit to be desired. Service was friendly and really fast. Our whole family (including 3,5,7 yr old kids) had a great time.

Great restaurant but be sure to go on an empty stomach. It is a heavy meal! Fabulous food but not for vegetarians or vegans by any stretch of the imagination.

Great first experience here at Brazil Grill. We let our server know that we had not enjoyed a Brazilian Steakhouse before, and he was quick to let us know what to expect. He also told us that the better cuts came later, so make sure...to save room. As I'm writing this, all I can think about is the ham and lamb. Of course, the steak cuts were great as well, but the ham was so sweet. I think I was so surpised at how well done the ham was. Usually, ham gets dry to easily in my opinion. There was also grilled pineapple, which was also very good. Took care of my need for a desert offering. As I said in the beginning, I'm looking forward to returning.More

Fun place to go for Brazilian meats. The servers come by the table every few minutes with a nice variety of skewed meats until you are stuffed. Not only is the meat variety good but the method of preparation is varied as well. We took...two preteen kids who totally enjoyed themselves.. is on the pricey side so we don’t do it often but is great for special occasions.More

A friend of mine and I tried the Brazil Grill while I was visiting town. Our meal was tasty and the service was outstanding. The meat selection was good and the variety of seasonings made for a nice meal. In comparison to Fogo de Chão,...I'd say that the service at Brazil Grill was better and friendlier. The side-salad selection was much smaller than FDC and I think the sides are better at FDC. Prices were comparable with Brazil Grill being sightly cheaper (if memory serves me correctly). Both restaurants are worth returning to. It really comes down to individual preference.More

This was an interesting experience. I enjoyed the salad selection, the roasted pineapple with cinnamon sugar was mouthwatering. I appreciated all the varieties of meat that you could eat here. You pay one price and you can eat as much meat and salads as you...wish, any selection. Great for a change of pace.More

We were here for a dinner with our son for a birthday celebration. We arrived on time and he was running late. We were seated in the corner of the glass store front and asked for a booth away from the window. Even though there...was a booth open (less than 50% of the restaurant was occupied since it was 5:00 pm), the young lady seating us said no booths were available. We chose not to make a big deal about it. We weren't allowed to hear about how the meal worked until our son arrived which means we couldn't go to the salad bar. The reason given to us appeared to be that the waitress only wanted to give the little speech once. Two glasses of wine took 15 minutes to arrive; no apology. This was indicative of the attitude and attention by the wait staff, but not the meat carrying staff. They were great. We were finally allowed to hear about how the meal worked after our son arrived and we got down to eating. The salad bar was okay, but the meat brought out was pretty tasty. There were some exceptions such as the bacon wrapped chicken which was dried out. The shrimp were over cooked also. I suspect that was due to the early hour, but it appears that no one checked. The meats were better as the restaurant filled up. Back to the waitresses. We ran out of wine and it took forever to get their attention. I waved and waved, but no response. Of course, after 15 minutes or so, two waitresses came by one right after the other. The order took longer than it should have because the waitresses wanted to talk more than listen to the order. This seems to be a habit the waitresses have. Finally, when they brought the check, I got called by my first name, a real peeve of mine. In summary, the atmosphere isn't that great, the service isn't that great (except for the meat carriers - they are fantastic) and the price was too high. We spent over $60 / person. My recommendation is that the waitresses listen more than talk and pay more attention to the comfort of their customers.More

Went back there and had the same warm reception and a perfect assortment of perfectly grilled meats.The salad bar is not very large, but the selection is perfect. This time I had some "Guarana", which is their special soft drink (delicious). I am sending my...work college in to celebrate his anniversary.More

Sorry, I can't answer that question, but I did see several different, wonderful sounding desserts on their menu. I bet they would be happy to accommodate a birthday.
