Nothing but very good food. Have adjustable pants and a huge appetite. This is one of my favorite places to take family friends when they come to town

This place was quite the experience. We made reservations, which apparently was a good idea as they seem to fill up on weekends. We went to a movie in the theater next door first. The gal who took my phone reservation remembered me when we arrived and asked how our movie was. Nice touch. We had our choice of three... More

I left more than stuffed. The salad bar is very good, beware of eating too much before you get started. Get a seperate warm plate and grab your mashed potatoes, veggies, and beans & rice. The real eating should start when the servers bring the big skewers of meat. The various chickens were great. The pork meats were even better.... More

The food and service is nothing spectacular for the prices they change. They could step it up a notch and just by having better wait staff.

This place is immaculate as soon as you walk in the door. The decor is beautiful and has that somewhat of a tropical feeling, yet subtle and low key enough to have a date night, or place to celebrate a mile stone in your life.There is a private room you can rent for a party or gathering and they have...

I have been to 2 Brazilian Steakhouses. One in Myrtle Beach, SD and the other in Dallas, Tx. Compared to those 2 experiences this one paled in comparison. We made a reservation and was seated fairly quickly. Our waitress was nice and helpful even though she seemed busy. The salad bar was just okay in my opinion. What made this... More

For several years I've been meeting friends at Carnaval for the Mother's Day Brunch. The service is attentive and the food is excellent....a favorite of ours is the pineapple. Do make reservations far in advance. I typically need to leave a message but find that they typically do not call back to confirm the reservation which leaves me a bit... More

My son had been bagging me to take him to Carnaval. It was such a fun night with my son. We loved the atmosphere. The food is really good. The salads and side dishes are buffet style. The meats are brought out to the table and you are able to choose from a variety. Babe grilled pineapple is the absolute... More
