The waiters were kind and attentive. We felt taken care of and the food was absolutely perfect for a Brazilian statehouse or a Rodizero

Food was good. We were seated at a small table next to a wall despite other regular size tables available. We were not comfortable. Waitresses presented choice of water to buy as if that's all that they had. Later topped off with tap water....

The food was ok, but the salad bar had fewer options than other Brazilian steakhouses. The beef was great but the chicken, both varieties were not my favorite. The grilled pineapple was delicious! The servers were pleasant and responsive. Not sure why we were seated upstairs. It would have been nice to hear the live music downstairs.

Everything was delicious. The only issue that we had was that we were offered 2 small cups of tequila and were not informed that it would cost 19 dollars a piece, especially when my wife did not even drink hers. Besides that, this was a fantastic meal and probably one of the best parts of our trip!

The atmosphere was overwhelming and very noisy/loud. The meats were okay. We received two side dishes of mashed potatoes and plantations which didn’t have a lot of flavor. Salad bar was great and the highlight of the meal. Candied bacon was yummy. It appears to be higher scale dining based on the price and expected experience, but it wasn’t.

After you eat all the seafood you can in Charleston, try this Brazilian Steakhouse for a change of pace. Food is excellent and the staff is extremely attentive. We really enjoyed everything about it.

So noisy that we left. Booked it for our anniversary dinner and felt like we walked into a daycare. Kids running rampant screaming everywhere. Staff was nice and I am sure the food is probably good, but for the $, this experience was not what I was looking for.

Edson (MOD) and our server (Bree) where most accommodating and gracious. We prefer our meats closer to well done and they made sure that our skewers were brought at our desired temperatures. The “salad bar” is by far the best in Charleston and has everything.

Great place to eat and have fun while eating.

Wonderful service and all around great experience. This was my first time at a Brazilian steakhouse so I wasn’t expecting to have so much food! The highlight for me was the dessert (creme brûlée) and the lamb chops. I also love how they provide gloves to prevent contamination and to keep things clean and orderly at the cold/hot bar.

We chose Charleston for our summer vacation and we were looking for a great place to eat for my husband’s birthday and our 25th wedding anniversary. Galpao Gaucho came up in a Google search. I am so glad it did….the restaurant was top shelf. From the moment we entered to the moment we left we were treated like royalty. Our drink glasses were never empty, our food plates were replenished with constant new choices coming out on skewers from the kitchen, and the filet mignon was the best piece of meat we have ever tasted. If you are in Charleston this is a definite must to add to your to do list.

This is a typical Brazilian steakhouse. The standout meat was the lamb chops and I loved the grilled pineapple.
Service was good, but the manager and servers were a bit aggressive about drink orders. However, when I did order a caprihina, it was AMAZING!

This is a bustling Brazilian steakhouse with fast-moving servers and lots of food and beverage options. I particularly like the fish options (grilled shrimp, salmon, swordfish), which are not typically available at this type of restaurant. The steak and lamb were well seasoned, and the servers were generous and readily available. There were ample choices of sides and salads on the salad bar. Overall, it is a good value and enjoyable experience.

I loved that we were able to book a dinner reservation here for the same day. We had a family weekend trip of 8 people, and we were having trouble finding somewhere, and this was perfect. It was a ton of food, but we enjoyed it all!
