We went to Cowboy after Fort Jackson graduation. We were disappointed to learn that they do not walk around with the unlimited meat at lunch time. However, our server explained the different menu choices and we had an outstanding lunch.

Different ambiance than other Brazilian steakhouses I have been too. Salad bar was adequate and meat selection was excellent and came by frequently. Really enjoyed thier dessert....try to leave room!

I love the variety offered on the cold and salad bar especially the smoked salmon. But the meats are the best and the piranha is like tasting heaven.

Not sure if it was the table we were at or what exactly, but the Baristas kept avoiding us. We had to keep asking our waitress (she was wonderful) to send them to us. Other than that everything was awesome as usual.

Great food and service as always. Took our senior pastor & his wife for Pastor Appreciation month and they both enjoyed their first time at a Brazilian Steakhouse.

Found out they started adding automatic gratuity

Don’t like that. As I’ve been a server and had to earn my tips.

Expected tips= salary.

Tips are earned. Bad taste In my mouth. Won’t be back.

And the saddest part is 18% mandatory.

I usually tip 25-30% for ok service.

Our waitress tonight could have walked away from our table with a 120.00 tip. We even talked about it before the bill came.

But if you’re going to take it. Well that’s what you get.

Rios in harbison isn’t greedy. I’ll go there next time.

A good place to get your eat on. If you can stand meats. The salad bar needs a lot of other items on it especially on the hot side. You would think of the price of $50.00 pp the atmosphere would be more elegant.

Overall we were very impressed with this place. Some of the meats were exceptional including the bacon wrapped filet, garlic strip, and especially the lamb chops. They were as good as any quality Brazilian steakhouse and can even be compared to some steak houses that I’ve been to. The pork, chicken and some other cuts of steak were very good as well. The only disappointing item was the flank steak; it really did not have much flavor and the chimichurri sauce they had available on the bar really was not that good. The mint jelly for the pork chops and other items on the salad bar like the mozzarella, olives, and especially the smoked salmon we’re great. Our service overall was good but not all of the meat servers stopped at every table and we missed a few things. Other than that this is really a place that should not be missed and we will be back.

Felt rushed. Load atmosphere. Food was not worth the price unless you eat a whole lot perhaps. Poor, overpriced wines. Felt like eating in an “upscale” Golden Corral”

The atmosphere was extremely nice and the food was AWESOME! You could just easy eat the salad bar and walk away very satisfied! My wife really loved the lamb chops and I became fixated with the variety of steak. We drove an hour and half to experience this restaurant and it was definitely worth the trip!

Cowboys is the place where the whole family can find food that we like and it's always good. We've been several times and it never disappoints. Our latest visit was 9-7-19 for our son's birthday. The food and service were great as always and we had an enjoyable evening.

The food was great. We arrived at 9pm and had a hour to eat. We were stuffed by 9:45pm. We received great service and all meat options were presented. I would definitely visit this location again.

*Note: the lamb chops and ribeye were my favorite. Seasoned well and tender.

The food was absolutely outstanding! I was worried about quality since it is a buffet, but all of the food was excellent. Our waitress wasn't great at explaining how things work, but the meat sever helped us out (albeit begrudgingly). Overall an excellent experience

I have frequented several Brazilian Steakhouses so I was very excited to bring my Goddaughter to share with her this experience. When I walked through the door I was Very Disappointed with the Ambience of this restaurant. The inside looked Industrial, Old and Tired, Not like the Elegant, Sophisticated, High End look of all the other Brazilian Steakhouses I've visited. That being said the staff there were very nice people and the food was OK. It lacked and could have used a little bit more seasoning on the meats. Everything brought to our table Medium Rare despite us specifically requesting several times Well Done. Consequently, we were there a Looooong time with lots of meat coming to our table that we could neither eat or enjoy.

We had a great experience. Food was delicious and timely. Salad bar was a bit smaller than others I have been to, but still plenty of choices. Not that I go for the salad bar!! Choices of meat were plentiful and cooked well. Only issue was that I thought dessert was included in the meal as the other ones I had been to that were a little fancier, but definitely will be back!!

We have been to Cowboy's quite a few times and everything was great. This time we had the salad bar only and it was very sub par compared to all the other times. The Tabouli was so salty that we could not eat it and the cheeses and cold cuts were pretty dry. The server we had did a very good job. The noise level was loud! I don't mind spending almost $60 incl. tip for two, but the food has always been much better.

I really enjoyed my first time at Cowboy Brazilian Steakhouse. I went with my company for a dinner and we had one of the private rooms. The staff was really on point they made sure to bring items that were requested as well as making sure to bring the meats cooked to the wanted temperatures. For a party of 8 they kept the food coming steadily. I would definitely recommend to visit/try at least one time.
