the service was terrible on Tuesday night. There were only 4 tables with people in the entire place. had to wait forever for drinks. Continued to get the same food sent to the table until I asked for the other 11 choices of meats offered. I will not go back

As usual the food was great with good service. The one complaint I do have is that they need a sign at the buffet bar instructing everyone to wear gloves. They do have a sign when you first come in. It should also be reinforced by the wait staff.

I think our waitresses name was Kristina. She was great! We went during restaurant week and it was super busy and she had a lot of tables but never made us feel like we were forgot about! The food was great, fast, and plentiful! Everyone we interacted with was very friendly! I really enjoyed my first time there!!!

We've eaten at Brazilian places all over the country, and this was just "MEH"
There were very few tables being served. That being said we were the 1st reservation at 4:30; and by 5:00 they were out of the brazillian cheese bread!!!! ( and only gave us 4 pieces for 4 people) it wasnt the best bread I've tasted either.
The meat for the most part was WAY OVER cooked. I told them MR And everything was well done, even the lamb chops!!!
Next time we're in Charelston we will be skipping this place!!!!!

Seated right around the corner from the reception desk. That location seemed somewhat off the path of the servers. Had to ask for selections to come our way. During other dining experiences with you this was not an issue, thus am convinced it was table location. On balance, very good experience. We'll be back.....

Food was decent, I’m surprised they stuff so many people in a small room. Our waitress was overwhelmed due to having too many tables. One of the guys was really good.

We go here a lot. Love the food and they've done a wonderful job of keeping it safe for everyone to come back. Cant say enough about this place, if you haven't tried it yet, it's worth the extra couple bucks and whatever drive to get there!

Hostess was rude. Side items was ok but the meat was disgusting and raw. Didn’t have too much of a selection on meat same 3 or 4 meat skewers were being passed around continuously. Server couldn’t keep up and kept forgetting stuff. Place is overrated and for my first time there I can definitely say I won’t return. Not worth what they are charging either.

Wasn’t great, wasn’t bad. Glad we went for restaurant week and didn’t pay full price. Meat was pretty good, everything else was decent. Nothing too spectacular. It’s a buffet, which I guess we weren’t really paying attention to when we booked.

We went to Cowboys for my Mother’s 50th birthday. She had never been and enjoyed every minute of the whole experience. They are all wearing masks and the tables are more spread out. They are able to accommodate our group of 8.

From the pictures online, the outside appearance, overall look and the name Cowboy Brazilian,, I expected something a little different maybe, Saddles, pictures of Brazilian Cowboys, etc.. Not to over the top, but I saw nothing also it was our 45th anniversary and I was hoping it would be a little Romantic,, It wasn't at all. I will go back though, it was a different experience and I have some friends that will like it also. The Food and Service was GREAT.

Yummy food! Great variety of food! Waitress pressured us into tipping more than normal though. We always tip at least 20% of the original bill, and we felt pressured to leave even more by her comments about Groupon.

The food was salted more than the original settlers would have used in an attempt to preserve their meat.... Definitely not worth the price. The service was ok.... the online details were very misleading!

Overall good experience. When we arrived the waiting staff was sitting around talking, and when I told them we had a reservation they didn’t even bother to check. It was our anniversary and not even a dessert was offered. Not much meat was going around, and the waitress never checked on us. They used to serve baskets with bread and fried polenta and a dish with bananas, but not anymore. The ladies serving the meat were very sweet, and accommodating.
For $100 for two people it’s not very worth it, better to go to the Galpao Gaucho Downtown.

Meat waiters stopped coming around for a bit even though my button was green. Had to ask if they were coming around again. Restaurant looked like a nice sizzler with decent steak.

Overall not bad but def not the best. I think for the price point I don’t think it’s a good value, if it were ~25 dollars a person I think this review would have been different.
