Fun place. They give glove for the salad bar. And request masks. Most customers wearing them at the salad bar. Do their best on sanitizing. Great staff from host to bartender to servers. And great meat ! We will be back

We really enjoyed our dinner. Food was delicious! And our waitress was great. We’ve found a “go to” whenever we come to Columbia. We will definitely be back.

The food, service and value are some of the best in Columbia. Their total disregard for customers entering without masks made it impossible for them to be masked at the salad bar. We will not be returning until the pandemic is over.

The salad bar was a complete joke. The website made it seem like there would be an expansive array of options on the salad bar. You can get better variety at Jason's Deli. None of the items on the bar were very good. The croutons were soft and soggy.

All of the meats were excellent and the ability to try a wide variety was nice, but for the price there was not enough of value.

Amazing food. All the meats were tender and delicious. I had the rice and beans for hot sides and they were so good. But their garlic bread was probably my favorite food I ate there. haha. They must have a secret recipe or ingredient because I never had garlic bread taste like that before! Ssoooo delicious. Servers were polite and our waitress was new, only on her second day and did fabulous. We’ll Definitely recommend eating here!

The food was good. Disappointed that there was not more of a selection or we were just bypassed .. I was also disappointed with the ambiance. I have to other Brazilian steak houses and this one was not nearly as nice

My husband and I met another couple for dinner for my birthday. The atmosphere was good and service was excellent. The value was just ok as it was a little pricey but they do continue to bring the meats around as long as you like. The salad and hot bar was very good and had a nice variety of salads and hot foods and sides. Overall I’d go back but only on a special occasion.

The meat portion was ok. There was a lot of beef. Not many choices for those who don’t eat beef. The bar that had the side dishes on it was not very plentiful. It was a lot of salad and cold foods. There wasn’t any hot vegetables like broccoli zucchini or squash.
I don’t think that it was worth the money that we spent.
The staff was very pleasant. The restaurant was quiet and clean.

My experience at Cowboys was OK to good. Everything about the restaurant was average. The restaurant was too busy for my wife's and mine liking. So, next time, we will decide to make reservations on a day or weekend (not a holiday weekend) when we think it may not be so busy. Thanks.

Very disappointing! The atmosphere was dirty and had no ambience. Old furniture and in desperate need of a paint job.
The food was okay at best. The salad bar was stocked with odd items. Most of the things I had were not good. The meat was fatty and had little flavor. We spent $300.00+ for 4 people. We did have a couple of cocktails but even so, it was WAY OVER PRICED!!
We will not be going back. I would definitely NOT recommend it to anyone.
