I would not recommend this location (Main Street) due to the service - lack of communication. We were not informed upon our arrival for our 8:30 reservation that the kitchen would close at 9:15.

My husband and I really enjoyed our time at the restaurant we were there celebrating our 7 year anniversary the manager came out and offered us a dessert on the house it was delicious only recommendations is it’s too cold in the restaurant like way too cold. The couple of the meats that came out were a little overcooked like the chicken Parmesan I found it to be a too dry but out of the 20+ sides and meats that came out it would still say it’s amazing I will for sure be coming back.

The food is OUTSTANDING!!!!! The service is on point!!! I will always recommend for those reasons!
To improve the ambience, there are a few lights around the outside of buffet which are just way too bright - should be covered with something- the noise level is high - a few noise baffles in the ceiywould improve this - HOWEVER- I will still be coming back and highly recommend!!!!

The salad bar is superb if you do not require a lot of meat. The salad bar has hot and cold items that could fill you up especially if you are a vegan, vegetarian or pescaterian. The buffet has smoked salmon, cold shrimp and various meat slices to mix with the many salads. There is always a fabulous soup of the day. If you must have meat, the options are glorious! My favorite is lamb because lamb is not served in many places I visit. The variety and tastes of the meats will satisfy or turn you into an ever returning carnivore.

I’ve never had the dinner but the lunch was meh. There was cocktail sauce, no shrimp. Cold cuts were ham and turkey...balsamic mushrooms was actually gravy. Soup was bland. Not really much as far as toppings go for the salads. The mozzarella was good. Was not a fan.

We have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. This visit was the same. They got our table readied when we arrived and were waited on immediately upon seating. The food and choices were very good with everything being very good. We will continue dining here in the future and look forward to our next return!

Our waiter did not bring out table items. All the other tables were served some sort of fries and bread, but we were not. The other tables were offered dessert, with their waiters bringing out samples to show them. We did not get the same service. Our drinks stayed empty, one water refill the whole time we were there. The food was bland. Not any decent warm side options. We had the all you can eat experience but left not feeling full and went somewhere else for dessert.

This was my second visit to the restaurant. The first was far below my expectation and experience in dining at this type of restaurant. I thought I would return to see if things were different. The food was much better this go around but the variety was very slow and or table had to keep asking for particular items to be brought out. It was almost as if they were trying to get rid of certain cuts of meat. LOL LOL Other than that, the experience this go around was much better.

Prepare to go into meat comatose. There are lots of great food and they bring you all you can eat beef, which is great. It was so much food that we went for lunch and I skipped dinner that night.

The food was ok, but the service was terrible. All the other tables around us got a small appetizer delivered to their table upon being seated. We did not. We had to ask our waiter multiple times for the same things (drinks, ice, certain meats, etc.) and it took him over 20 minutes to get back to us with our check. Worst service I've had in a long time.

Not bad but not great. Have been to other Brazilian Steakhouses that are much more impressive. Small salad bar. The meat was ok, nothing spectacular. Think I’ll stick to traditional steakhouses when I need a meat fix.
