We had to wait quite a while for everything during our dinner for 5. Drinks were slow to come out, meats were offered less frequently than in the past - at one point we had to ask if any was coming. As the host for this dinner I felt disappointed and will not use the restaurant again for business meals.

Food was delicious and plentiful, and the variety was amazing. Approximately a dozen or more items from the grill, plus the bar loaded with shrimp and smoked salmon.
Service was excellent. Everyone was friendly, professional, and prompt.

We went to Cowboy Brazilian Steakhouse for the first time and were highly impressed! They had spacious tables, great ambiance, and really nice hot/cold food bars. The food bars were well stocked, very clean, and full of choices to compliment the array of assorted meats. The meat servings were continual and often. The meats were served nice and warm and went with the sidebar items very well. The staff was equally cordial and helpful. A great place to have dinner!

I personally didn't care for the food. I have had better Brazilian Steakhouse food. Maybe they were having an off night. The service was great and not bad.

I just wanted to say that the food at this restaurant was amazing exceeded my expectations above and beyond the only reason I’m giving him such a poor review is because of the service. Alice I will server was amazing however she was the only server for the entire restaurant our reservation was at 6 PM and if she was alone until 730 PM when we get ready to leave. Dirty Plates ON tables cups went unfilled Dirty utensils not replaced. I guess my expectation was too high for the level of service we got at this restaurant. Finally the food was amazing and Alice was absolutely remarkable when she was available. I think the management at this restaurant should pay more attention to customer service and then the mentality of getting them in and getting them out. This restaurant has the potential to be amazing but I was personally underwhelmed by everything but the food which was awesome

This places is good place to get some Brazilian style meat once in a while. As it is the only Brazilian steakhouse in the greater Charleston area. The people that come out with the meats do so routinely but there seems to be no pattern when they do. One guy who seemed to have the best cuts of beef would constantly skip our area of the restaurant, while the other two people would always hit our area. The cuts like sirloin and ribeye were a rarity and we were constantly getting chicken and pork options. Never once heard them mention picanha which is a Brazilian steakhouse staple. Overall food was good just the variety of meats or way they are rotated around could be improved.

The service was great! Our server was very attentive and on the ball. The salad bar and the hot bar were amazing!! I could have just had that and been satisfied. Sadly, the meats were a disappointment. They were very fatty and salty. I should have just saved the $15 on the other items. Other than that, it was a great, first experience.

It was okay. Expected it to be special but the service was okay along with the meal. Some of the meat was overcooked and bland.

We dined on the Sunday before Christmas so as we expected, they were very busy. We had to wait a good while at our table before we were acknowledged, but again they were busy. Eventually a manager noticed we had not been greeted and she kindly took our drink orders and assured us someone would be there right away. The server did arrive not long after and she was very nice and helpful. However, they seemed to be a bit short handed with people serving the meat as it took quite long for them to get to our table. Other tables were being served multiple times while we had not received anything. But we were tucked away in a corner and I don’t think they even noticed us for some time. Once the meat servers realized we were there, they made our way more consistently. The salad bar and hot bar, as always were fantastic. With its great selections, you could make a meal just from the salad bar. Even though it took a while at times to be served, all in all, a good experience. Nothing happened that would prevent us from returning. But for the best service, dine during the week and not during the holidays! And if you leave hungry it’s your own fault!

We had a great experience! My husband loved it for his 30th birthday. The food was very tasty and the variety of meats had its own special flavor. Salina did a great job being our server and to find out it was her first night on the floor.

We went to Cowboy Brazilian Steakhouse for dinner. It was a very slow night which was great for us when it came to meat being brought to the table. We had a constant flow of Passadores bringing meat to our table. The meat was nicely seasoned and cooked. The offerings were well balanced, too. We had filet mignon come out regularly and NY Strip as well. Some places send out sausage, pork and chicken heavily and light on better cuts but not here. There were plenty of great options available. The unfortunate part of our experience was the service. Perhaps our server was sent to the floor with no training but service was disappointing. We ordered a bottle of wine and brought a bottle of wine ('97 Chateau Musar) which we were happy to pay a corkage fee for. The server took our wine from the table to the back. We thought, maybe she is coming back to present it or with a decanter. She came back and said, sorry while trying to open it in the back, she broke the cork in the bottle. Also, the restaurant had no decanter. They do have a small selection of higher end wines on the menu that may benefit from decanting , and they are a steakhouse, so I was surprised by all of this. Why take someones wine from the table? Why open it in the back instead of at the table? We overheard another table ask what whiskey they had at the bar and she replied she did not know but if they told her what they like, they probably have something like it. Also, a slight mix up on the check as well. In the end the food quality outshines the service so it was in the end an overall good experience. My suggestion- order the food, not the wine or drinks.

Food was great. Atmosphere was awesome. Our waiter was friendly, just kinda slow. He seemed to forget about us at times. But when he saw us he always came right over and apologized about forgetting us and what we asked for.

We arrived early but were seated immediately. Service was awesome. Restaurant was updated & classy, clean & neat. It was a first time visit & everything was explained. The food was delicious, well seasoned & cooked appropriately. Definitely a fun experience & everyone should try it at least once....must eat the grilled pineapple!

I loved everything except, We came for my boyfriend’s birthday and I noted that this was the occasion. Our server really didn’t do well with recognizing the occasion.. I mentioned it and all he did was bring his “free desert” to go.. meanwhile another party was there for their sons birthday as well I over heard their server and she brought him a birthday shot as well as a decorated desert PLATE and every one my server included sang happy birthday.. was disappointed he didn’t receive the same praise.. but all in all the food was great ...
