    My husband & I had never been to a Brazilian steakhouse before, so this was a first. I’m not a big meat eater, but they had salmon & shrimp, so I had plenty to eat. I could have been happy with just the salad bar. They had so many choices I didn’t get to try everything; next time! I did try a small piece of the filet mignon & it was tender & delicious! We enjoyed the caipirinha’s cocktail’s which reminded me of mojitos. We splurged & got dessert’s although we didn’t need it. One was a Brizilian flan & the other was a papaya cream. Both were good! The staff was very attentive and pleasant. Had a couple visits to our table from management. Just checking on us. Overall a great experience!

    The meats were not cooked to my liking. Tasted bland and most were either over cooked or under cooked rare. Most of the red meat was tough. Fish was dry and shrimp was fishy! Drink prices are outrageous. $15.00 for a glass of house wine is above even downtown standards.

    First, thanks to Alfredo, our waiter, who made sure we got everything we needed and did everything promptly. The guys coming out with the meats were incredibly polite, efficient, and also went out of their way to ensure one of us got a little more of the meats they liked. The food was fantastic. Incredible variety, top quality, and perfect technique. Beautiful venue and well developed spaces. Easy and seamless experience with my reservation through OpenTable and the hostess taking me to my table.

    Galpao Gaucho is absolutely our favorite Brazilian Steakhouse and we've eaten in many. The premium food, service and ambiance is 5 Star. Next time you're in Charleston, don't miss out on this experience. Save room for dessert. New York Cheesecake and Molten Lava Cake with Ice Cream is our favorites. Bon appetit!

    Galpao Gaucho is a family favorite. Whenever family comes to town, this is our place. We love the food and the experience. The staff is friendly and hard working. My favorite is the Parmesan pork and the grilled pineapple. Delicious!

    Have been to about 4 other Brazilian Steakhouses. The flavors at this particular one were phenomenal. All have been great but this one was over the top good. Highly recommended. Service was top notch as well. Try the caipirinha cocktail, you won't be disappointed.

    Thanksgiving Day! Although they offered traditional Thanksgiving dinner we opted for the salad bar and the meats for no other reason than we could only eat so much! Great atmosphere, excellent service and fantastic food! Not a bad price considering everything included. The tres Leche dessert was incredible! We are local and will be back. Thank you!

    Went for Thanksgiving and really grateful for the staff for working on a holiday. Obrigado! Been to many Brazilian steakhouses in Brazil and US. This was a nice experience and the grilled pineapple and grilled cheese with honey were the stand-outs. Disappointed on the limited heart of palm and rather dull pao de queso and surprised no brigadiero option for dessert.

    Just an awesome place to eat and a great experience. The meats are incredibly delicious, and the salad bar is wonderful with all kinds of gourmet items. Servers are extremely attentive without being intrusive. We have to save up for our semiannual visits since the price is quite a bit higher than the average restaurant, but this isn't an average restaurant. I wish they would bring back the lunch price, though. It was roughly half of the current $64 per person. That way, we could go twice as often!
