Brazilian Steakhouse
Known for outstanding service, the authentic “churrascaria” offers more than 12 flavorful cuts of meat including lamb, pork, chicken and beef on skewers carved table side by gauchos. In addition to several cuts of meat, the continuous service includes a trip to the fresh and bountiful salad bar followed by a basket of traditional, mouthwatering pao de queijo (cheese bread). Fried bananas, buttery garlic mashed potatoes and fried polenta are served family style. An excellent, extensive wine list and authentic Brazilian cocktails complement the unlimited fare.
At our restaurant we are proud to bring you all the tradition behind the unique and original Brazilian way of serving meat. Food doesn’t stop arriving until you’ve had enough. Whether it’s a cocktail reception, class reunion, corporate picnic, magnificent wedding reception, or any occasion we can create a great event fueled by our passion for perfection.

After looking forward to a wonderful evening since we had not been out because of the pandemic we had a disappointing evening. My lemon drop martini with just a bit of sugar on the rim, had sugar all over the glass and of course on my hands. I asked for a wet napkin to wipe the sugar off my hands and the glass. We waited for pork ribs and sirloin and asked the waitress and two other persons and gave up on asking. When the manager came around to ask if we were ok and we mentioned this he said he could get it for us but it was a little too late. We had already ordered dessert at this point. We ordered coffee with dessert and when the waitress came by later we asked for coffee and she must have forgotten. The manager tried to make up for the evening by offering the no cost dessert.

Food was awesome but I always love the service. They were even better yesterday. We had constant attention and when we declined on a particular cut, the waiter would ask for what we were looking for and would go find the waiter that had that cut to come to our table.

One of the best experiences we’ve had at Chama. Food was amazing and every single item was cooked perfectly. Normally one or two meats are subpar, but that was not the case this time.

Service was unmatched, as always, friendly team and attention to detail.

We cannot wait to go back!

Service was somewhat slower than on previous visits. Ordered well done meat from one of the servers, he said he would be right back and I never saw him again. Assortment offered was less than previous visits. Hopefully this was just a glitch as I have always enjoyed great service on previous visits.

The service is exemplary and the food was delicious.
However, the salad bar seems to be getting progressively smaller and less enjoyable with each visit.
