One meat server would not serve us. He would serve the tables around us but not us (the coaster was on green). We had to speak with the waitress in order for him to serve us. The experience was not good. We will not be going there again.

Was an okay Brazilian Steakhouse...not stellar. The quality of the food was average. Service was great. The facility itself looks as though neglected for years. I will not return.

After making the initial reservation more people were added to our party. I called back and told whoever was answering phones that we would be having 11 instead of 8 people. She said it was no big deal and she would add it to our reservation.
Once we got there they made it like I had never told them to change it and like it was a really big deal to add another table and like we were causing them this huge amount of work to add another table. They told us that it was a packed house that night. Well the “packed house” reservations around our table didn’t even show up until over an hour after we got there. We were there for 2 hours and 40 minutes. We would have been in and ready to leave after 1.5 hours after arrival but waited for service most of the time we were there. We never really knew who the server was and it was like a huge inconvenience to get drinks refilled. The serving staff just seemed like everything was a big imposition. My service I expect when paying $115 per couple.

The food was amazing as always. They were out quickly and often. But the service really threw off our experience.

Needed more staff. Waitress could not keep up with drink needs and table attention needed. Food was excellent. Room layout food/tables could be improved (need interior designer). Seating was cheap based on quality of experience.

We really enjoy trying different Brazilian steakhouses so we were excited for our family dinner on our trip to’North Charleston. The people who served the meats and pineapple were wonderful. Attentive, asked what we would like to try and provided it. The only real problem was our waitress. We had other servers helping with drink refills etc because she was very busy socializing. The other locations we have been to have been a little better maintained and in nicer areas. Overall though it was a good experience. We definitely left full!

Service was friendly but extremely slow. Food did not seem very fresh, possibly because there weren’t a lot of people there. Probably won’t go back with so many other options around.

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.

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.
