Service and atmosphere is excellent. Wide selection of meats to experience. Large salad bar for the light eaters in your group. This is a "must do," to put on yout list of downtown restaurants to take in.

We've been to Brazilian restaurants in Key West, Chicago and San Antonio. The Rodizio Grill doesn't measure up. We went here on New Year's Eve. I heard our waitress say that there was a special for New Year's Eve with a $5 up charge. The special included prime rib, shrimp and salmon. I also heard her say that the regular... More

Attentive service, fantastically delicious array of meats to satisfy every appetite and palette, and the grilled pineapple... incredible. Our server, Badri, was friendly and accommodating, and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys a greatly satisfying meal for a very reasonable price considering the food and service you will receive here.

Great for the price. It's usually $50+ in bigger cities. Bavri was a great server and made my bday a good experience.

Staff was friendly and engaging. We were seated promptly. We were shown the salad and soup bar, and the food service process, relative to ordering the meats and fish, was explained thoroughly. Having not been here previously I was not left to wonder how everything worked. The before dinner complimentary appetizers were excellent. I thought the salad bar only for... More

This was my 5th visit and the first time that I wasn't satisfied with the food. We enjoyed wild game month last year and was really looking forward to this year but was very disappointed that there were only 3 wild game offerings and the normal offerings were very well done even though the website say that they should be...

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
