Good salad bar and wine options! The service was good. The meat options were very good. The chicken, sausage, steak, pork were all good! The grilled pineapple with brown sugar and cinnamon was tremendous!

Great staff. Great food. Person next to me was talking way too loud for the setting. Really annoyed me and my guest. I am deaf in one ear so it was uncomfortable trying to talk. Otherwise it was exceptional. Love, love, love the lamb chops and pineapple and bbq chicken.

Meat heaven!! I’m a carnivore and let me tell you I haven’t been that happy in a long time. Meat. Meat. Meat. I had the meat sweats half way through! Nirvana. I was late for work the next morning thanks to the meat coma I experienced. The different cuts were all cooked perfectly. S&P only just the way I like it. The meat was plentiful and prompt. At no point was I waiting for the next cut. From lamb to pork to God’s beef everything was perfect.

The people were lovely but we were seated in a smaller dining room and the food choices did not make it back to us. My son looked forward to lamb chops and grilled pineapple that never made it to us. Better luck next time!

Never eating in a Brazilian steakhouse before, this experience was amazing. The gauchos didn't pay as much attention to the red/green cards as I thought they would, but the service was still fantastic.

The food is good, but the meats are served infrequently. We sat for long periods of time without any meat being offered, and during our entire 2 hour meal, we were never offered most of our favorites such as lamb, or round special Brazilian steak (I don't know the correct name).
When we were offered meat, it was the inexpensive selections (flank steak, sausage), and we didn't want to eat that exclusively- but we did.
The salad bar is good, with fresh offerings. There were no usual Brazilian sides, such as cheese rolls, or yuca, or plantains though.

My husband and I have eaten at many Brazilian steakhouses in the Southeast (we live in Jacksonville), and this was our least favorite- but, it was also the most inexpensive, so it's a trade-off. If you go in with lowered expectations, you'll be less likely to be disappointed.

We just moved to S.Carolina from NY in April of 2018. Cowboy Brazilian Steak House ( N. Charleston ) has become one of our favorite places to eat. Last Saturday was our first time dinning with 2 children joining our part. The 2 children, who can be picky eaters found plenty of items offered that they enjoyed and asked for seconds.

THE ONE SELECTION OF MEAT THAT WAS RARE, DRIPPED BLOOD ON THE TABLE AND NO ONE WIPED IT OFF!! TEMPERATURE IN RESTAURANT WAS VERY WARM. MY WIFE AND I WERE SWEATING.

For the price I expect my gauchos to be circulating meat by my table often enough that I get to sample each offering multiple times. There where too few gauchos and at times meat was not circulated at all. Also my mother in law only had salad bar and when my check was presented her meal was charged at the full price so I had to get the bill adjusted. Check your bill. Also the separate back room where we were seated detracts from the ambiance and limits visibility to the gauchos. Suggest the back room be opened up into one big room. Also the decor is cheap looking.

The salad bar was great. everything very fresh & delicious. Not so with the meat. Almost all of the beef choices were very well done. We kept asking for rare or medium rare, were told it was rare but when they sliced it was the same well done. I asked for the lamb but it was the same story. The one piece of chicken we tried was hard & dry. Very disappointing. Our very wonderful server, Alice, asked them to make the lamb rare, but that didn't happen. Alice was delightful & an excellent server & an excellent asset to your sorry restaurant. She told us that since it was our anniversary we were entitled to free dessert. My husband declined but I ordered creme carmel. It was good, but when we looked at out bill when we got home we saw that we were charged for that also. We will not be back & cannot recommend your restaurant.

My husband and I have been to several brazillian steakhouses. This one was a disappointment compared to others we've had. Most of the steak delivered was very dry and tough and not seasoned well. All steaks tasted blah......also, we would sit at the table for 15 to 20 mins just waiting on a "meat man" to come by our table. If anyone wants delicious brazillian food, try RIOZ in columbia sc or myrtle beach sc

Food was outstanding and the salad bar was kept fresh and clean.
The servers that brought the meats around were polite and prompt.
They did have a problem bringing lamb.
Twice I had to go looking for our waitress she just kept disappearing.
Had to go get my own bar drinks.
So from waitress stand point not good.
Overall we enjoyed the evening.
