About

Bull Grill Steakhouse is a Brazilian restaurant that serves food made from authentic Latin and South American recipes. It also has a side bar where the guests can enjoy a healthy salad made from garden-fresh vegetables and fruits. Once the guests are finished with their salad, all they need to do is turn the green side of their menu up for the waiter to take their orders.

Bull Grill Steakhouse's specialty lies in its grilled meat which is roasted to perfection and sliced professionally by the restaurant's gaucho chefs. Once the guests are full and satisfied with their meal, they can turn the red side up for ordering desserts and drinks. Bull Grill Steakhouse's other popular meals include Picanha, spare ribs costelinha, pork & parmesan cheese and bacon-wrapped chicken breast.

Great place! Food and service is excellent. Staff goes out of their way to accommodate you. Salad/ hot bar was good and the meats were perfectly cooked the night we were there. So glad we tried it out. Have recommended to friends already. We will definitely go back!

Worst Brazilian restaurant I have ever experienced. Meat was cold from 3 different servers. Excuse was they were busy which was no excuse for serving cold food.

We were greeted at the door by the owner, Kim. He happily explained how the Brazilian Steak House worked. The salad bar had a nice selection of salad and side dishes.Then it was time for the meat to be brought to our table. It was as we requested, medium rare and delicious. Our server, Felipe, was outstanding. He was very friendly and knowledgeable. So many varieties of meat and seasonings. Also the homemade sangria was outstanding!

This was a nice small restaurant, quiet with good food and great service. I have eaten at better Brazilian steakhouses before, their buffet was not as good as others and didn't like when I ordered a sweet tea I received a bottled brisk tea and my husbands soda was out of a can, not what I expect when paying over $100.00 for dinner.

If you are used to the chain Brazilian Steak houses, then you will be disappointed. This is a family run restaurant. The sangria was very good. The meats were flavorful with the usual variety and the salad bar was just ok. We enjoyed the ambiance, the food, the drink, the many pictures of Brazil (alternating on several TVs). Apparently it is a prix fixe of $35ish with drinks extra.

From the time we stepped into the place, until we walked out the door, we were made to feel like a VIP family. The service was 2nd to none and the meats, chicken, ribs and other items just kept coming! Really pleased with the Mother's Day Dinner experience my wife had.

YMMV, but as far as we're concerned, we'll be back and often!

The food here was great, well seasoned meats. I've been to many of the Brazilian steakhouse in the area and this one by far holds the best for service and food. The host was very attentive the food was well prepared and very tasty. They have a wide variety of meats to choose from. The place is in a interesting location almost drove by it. The atmosphere doesnt feel rushed.Defiantly worth a stop by to check out. The salad bar is great as well.This made for a perfect night out with my wife.

Pleasant staff and management, but not the best Brazillian Churscaria we have been too. Salad bar is limited and some of the meats were not good. They do not over salt their meats, so that is good. May give it another try, but not recommending right now based on this first experience.

Bull Grill is a great place to dine. Comprable to the best brazillian steakhouses, without the super high costs. All the meats were fabuluos, the carvers and servers were very professional, courteous, and kind. With a party of 8, all of our people were attended to indiviually and promptly, so no worries about someone being left out. This place is amazing and well worth skipping the hype of the big name chains.

I have been to several Brazilian Steakhouses however enjoyed my experience at Bull Grill. The restaurant is on the small scale but it was perfect to catch up with a family member I have not seen in a few years. The food (meats) were excellent and what an assortment we had to choose from. The salad bar area was ok but I am there for the meat not the salad. We all left will bellies ready to burst. The staff was very attentive and made you feel so welcome. The prices are very affordable when compared to other Brazilian Steakhouses. The only thing I would have changed when I dined at Bull Grill was the volume of the music it at times was so loud I could not hear my guests. But my overall experience I would gladly go back again and again.

Went for Valentine's and the food was great. The servers and carvers were excellent too. However, the restaurant was too hot...small space, alot of people and didn't feel like any air was in! Also the atmosphere was a reminder of being on cruise ship...other than that it was good!

This restaurant was very small but a grew value through living social. We enjoy Brazilian steakhouses and this one was enjoyable. The salad bar is a little small and if you are used to the big chains it will be a different experience but tasty all the same.

The food and service was impeccable! The food was perfectly seasoned and prepped! Servers were attentive and efficient.

It's not worth the $40 at all. By far the worse meat and service I ever had at a Brazilian steakhouse. In comparison to texas de brazil and fogo de chao they do have a nice Salad bar, but it's called a Brazilian "steak house" not "salad house". You literally have to wait 15 mins for a small sample of meat and the waiters are given direct orders not to cut decent-sized pieces. On top of that, the meat is cold and either too dry or not cooked at all. For just $5 more I can get much better meats and service. Very bad experience!

If you want to try something off the beaten path but around the corner, The Bull Steakhouse is your place! The owner (Kiki) takes great pride in his heritage as a Brazilian and it shows as a parade of pictures, featuring macaws and monkeys to scenes of Carnival, dancing on the wall-mounted flat screens. The kaleidoscope of colors was complimented by the awesome assortment of flavors from the soup and salad bar and the delectable meats which flow like a river from the kitchen. The ones we liked the most were: the chicken, lamb, parmesan crusted steak, garlic steak and beef brisket... Can't wait to go back and bring friends and family, as this place has a special place in our hearts (and stomachs) ;)

They ran out of food on the salad bar, rice and sides you get yourself.....empty. I understand how this happens sometimes, for I have worked at a restaurant before so I am extra compassionate and understanding when there are issues. However...at $30/ person this is inexcusable OR we should have gotten a discounted rate if we aren't getting what we paid for. They were turning customers away even if they had a reservation. They also added 18% service fee for our small table of 4. I assume this was because they ran out of food and thought people would tip poorly. The service was good, manager was good and the meat was great

DIDN'T LIKE THE NEIGHBORHOOD! DIDN'T LIKE THE BUFFET SET UP. THE FOOD WAS NOT BAS BUT COULD HAVE BEEN BETTER. THE SERVICE WAS HORRIBLE! THE MANAGER NEEDS TO BE STRONGER WITH THE WAITERS ABOUT GETTING PEOPLE FED. IF HE SERVES 10 DIFFERENT MEATS, HAVE 10 DIFFERENT MEATS GOING AROUND AT ALL TIMES. I ONLY SAW 4 DIFFERENT MEATS AND 2 EVERY TIME THEY WERE AROUND. IT WAS A TERRIBLE EXPERIANCE. ESPECIALLY THAT I HAS BOUGHT THIS TO TAKE MY HUSBAND OUT FOR FATHERS DAY AND HE DID NOT ENJOY NOT ONE BIT OF THE EVENT.

I went with my pregnant girlfriend that can't eat all the meat and she enjoyed it as much as I did. The food was delicious and the meat was fresh and warm also tasty. I would recommend going with friends or a nice date night. I also had a nice red wine from Spain. I would go back and I plan to in the near future. I did not finish my wine and the owner ended up wrapping the wine for me so I could take it home. I found that to be very nice.
