This Brazilian restaurant specializes in Rodizio. They bring out a dozen or more varieties of spit grilled cuts of beef, pork, lamb, and chicken and carve then right off the spits at the table. There is a beautiful salad bar and buffet of traditional side dishes to accompany the meats. You can choose just to have salad bar and buffet.... More

We always feel welcome, even if we are in for just drinks or dessert. The sangria is the best I've had and the caipirinha is fabulous! I've never had anything I didn't enjoy. We've eaten the rodizio and just regular menu items. It's family run and they treat the customers like extended family.

This is hands down one of the best restaurants I've been to. The food is impeccable and the servers are great. The coffee they serve is very good too. I wasn't extremely fond of the cheesecake but that was overshadowed by every other aspect of this restaurant. I suggest this Brazilian steakhouse to everyone!

Our first visit to this restaurant, and I have to say you can't judge a book by its cover (or neighborhood). This is the Scranton Fogo de Chao-a buffet of various offerings including salad, cheese bread, cheeses, plantain and polenta, etc. The meats are of immense variety-various steaks, turkey wrapped in bacon, chicken, pork loin, lamb and others. Serious yum.... More

Everyone needs to experience this at least once. The meats were very tender. The buffet was good as well. Allow yourself at least an hour to experience every offering. Also bring the gold card as its around $35.00 per person.

We recently visited based on reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed! The staff was very attentive and the food was excellent! The owner was great as well. If you like sangria do not pass up the opportunity to try theirs!

We were staying overnight in the Scranton area and always check TripAdvisor when we are looking for places to eat. The reviews for Ipanema Grille caught our attention. We have heard of Brazilian steakhouses but have not eaten at one. So the dining experience looked interesting. Before our arrival we had scanned the menu and decided to pass on the... More
