We stayed a night in Milwaukee and walked by and saw Rodizio. We have never been here and my wife has never been to a Brazilian steakhouse so we went in. The atmosphere is really nice and calm and we had an awesome enclosed booth. We both ate way too much as the selection was a lot. This is a... More

We went with a large group for a birthday. I had been to this type of restaurant so I knew what it was all about but this was my least favorite experience. Although the restaurant was nice and our server was pleasant and attentive, the food service was disappointing. Despite a large variety of meat items listed on their website,... More

We had a large family gathering here & it was really good. The buffet of salads & sides nearly filled me up & then the wonderful meats started showing up. Needless to say I left uncomfortably full but it was so worth it.

Rodizio Grill is one of the more unique restaurants in downtown Milwaukee. You can choose the salad bar which usually includes beef stroganoff and a couple other warm side dishes along with a sumptuous variety of salads, meats and cheese some of which are nothing like you would find at any other restaurant salad bar. But the main event here... More

I've been to Rodizio for Downtown Dining and my boyfriend had been expressing interest in having dinner there for a while now. We finally made it there last Saturday and it was very good. We enjoyed the large salad bar; I'm glad they added some extra dishes such as the penne and corn in addition to regular salads. We weren't... More

The last day of the summer BBQ Special was Labor Day. The salad bar selection is really much more than salad as there was chicken noodle soup, a macaroni and cheese, and countless salad mixes along with all the ingredients to make your own salad. Beets were available plus several fruit salads. On the meat side, there was lamb, pork,... More

We love this place. Be prepared to eat. The only draw back is the salad bar is awesome. You want to eat your fill at the salad bar but then you don't have enough room for the amazing cuts of meat. This is a great place when you feel like getting a lot of foot. The meats are amazing!!!

Spent $250 on dinner for 4 people (1 just had salad bar) and left hungry. This place has HORRIBLE service. Many people walked out after waiting over 20 minutes without service. Had to grab the waiter to try and get a drink, and she was very unhappy to even get us clean plates. What a complete waste of money --... More

Nice location with validated parking across the street. Be sure to pick the right garage! Nice price point at $35 for dinner, but not the same level of food or service you get at Fogo, and of course not the same price point. Cannot go wrong with Black Beans and Rice.

As a fan of brazilian steak houses, I thought I would try Rodizio. I was massively disappointed. The salad bar was miniscule and the choices there were unappetizing. When the cheese bread was brought out it was cold. Service was poor, although the restaurant had few customers and the food was just OK. Some of the meats were good, but... More
