At $30-35 a person, half-price for 6-12 yrs old, everyone should leave stuffed. Meat is a bit salty, but overall very good. Loved the lamb and shrimp and especially the pineapple...a dessert in itself! Salad bar lots of mayo-based mixes (yummy but loaded with calories), cheeses, olives, along with lettuce choices. Garlic potatoes and mixed veggies very good. Also have... More

We did not do the all you can eat meat and salad bar but still had a wonderful meal. They just started the ahi tuna coconut fusion meal which was amazing. It comes with this awesome coconut rice. The atmosphere is also great. We happened to be there on a live music evening and it was fun. Definitely recommend if... More

We visited based on the reviews and it lives up to the reputation in the reviews. We had an excellent meal with terrific service. The lounge had a live music and that was good too.

I LOVE this place!! It is pricey so bring your appetite! Basically, if you like meat....it is all you can eat! They have a few different price options; no matter which you choose...you will leave satisfied! Awesome salad bar as well! Our server was amazing! We will definitely return again and again!

Amazing service. Definitely pricey. Beautiful restaurant including the bathrooms. You have to have the lamb and the pineapple. You have to go at least once in your life, but it's not a place that you would go to often. You will walk out of there very full. The salad bar and the sides were excellent as well.

We walked over from a nearby hotel when traveling to Sioux Falls so it was very convenient. We were able to get right in and greeted by very friendly staff which showed us the options. We have been to several different Brazilian style steakhouses while traveling and on cruises. This stacks up well against them. I will compare to fogo... More

Everything is absolutely mouthwateringly perfect, but the garlic-encrusted sirloin is TO DIE for! Nowhere else in Sioux Falls can you taste a flavor even remotely close. The unique offerings on the salad bar are fantastic as well. Yes, it is a bit spendy, but well worth the money. If you leave hungry, it's your own fault, so bring your appetite!

We had the #2 option, which includes all the meats but no shrimp. The price was $29 each. There is certainly no shortage of meats being served, and there was an ample selection of other items at the salad bar and hot bar. Loved the signature steak, bacon wrapped sirloin and the lamb. The other meats seemed pretty dry...of course,... More

This was my second Brazilian-style steakhouse and I generally enjoyed the experience, but the quality of the meat left something to be desired. If I hadn't had a fantastic experience at a competing steakhouse in Denver, I might have been better satisfied with the quality, though. My favorite part of the meal was the roasted pineapple with a caramelized sugar... More
