Brazilian Steakhouse
What better way to pay patronage to one’s country than with food? Like many others before them, owners Vagmar Stoffel and Rubiano Aguiar, originally from Brazil, longed for the warmth and togetherness that food brings the Brazilian people. Growing up, their family always gathered around the table to share ideas and talk about their day. It’s from that idea that Rio’s Steakhouse was born, more than just a restaurant – a family away from home.

Vegetarians beware: Meat Lovers inside, Come experience what Rodizio is all about!

The food was amazing and the place looked really nice. Small building but they make it work. Our waitress was very friendly but that was about it. Forgot to refill drinks and checked on all tables around us 2 times.

From the entrance of this restaurant to the exit was 5 STARS. This was our first Brazilian style eatery, and we were not disappointed. Our waitress was attentive, kind, and full of knowledge. The chef cooked all meats to perfection! It is impossible to leave here hungry. We highly recommend the experience.

A friend introduced me to Rio and I was AMAZED at the quality of food (not to mention the quantity). I came home and told my wife we were going there that weekend. I took seven of us and we were accommodated easily with the same service as when it was two of us. All adults and three kids were very happy and left very full of very high quality food.

Probably the best restaurant I’ve EVER been to from beginning to end. They may have spoiled me for any other restaurant in the future because I’ll be judging them against Rio! You owe yourself to go and experience this place.

Great food with a great atmosphere. We booked through Open Table and selected we were going for a date night. The staff was waiting for us with a table reserved by the fireplace. Staff couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. Service was always there. The food was very tasty with a good variety. I would definitely suggest this place to others!

I invited several friends to come to Rio Brazilian Steakhouse in Plymouth for the first time. They all loved it and all of them said they want to come back again. The service was amazing. One of our guests doesn't eat pork and the beans on the buffet had pork in them. She asked if they have any beans with no pork. Within 10 minutes they had put out a dish of bean on the buffet with no pork. Amazing! Food was delicious! Everyone in our party was raving about the food.

I brought my wife and three boys to this restaurant two years ago and now they are all hooked the food is great and the staff is awesome they make sure you do not leave hungry if you like steak and chicken and a nice salad bar this is the place to go. Every time my son’s make honors in school this is the restaurant they want to go. You will not regret your choice and bring pants that have some room in them.

We've been to rodizios in Sao Paulo, San Antonio, NYC, and Boston, and the Rio can hold its own with any of them. The salad bar has ~20-25 items, hot and cold, and everything is fresh (the pao de queijo just about floats on air). The meat includes steak (garlic, flank, sirloin, sirloin tip), lamb, pork loin and sausage, and bacon-wrapped chicken. It is delicious, and the servers circulate continuously. The desserts are quite large; the flan and the molten chocolate cake are delicious. The sangria was a perfect complement to the meal. We've been to dinner twice, and brought a total of three other couples, none of whom had ever been to a rodizio before, and they all loved it. The Rio is also a great value. The Fogo do Chao chain charges double the price, and while its salad bar selection is larger, the quality of the food is no better. The noise level is not bad; even on a busy Saturday evening, it was possible to have a conversation with friends. We recommend the place highly, and plan to go there for lunch soon. Our servers were also very friendly and helpful.

We love dining at Rio. The staff is pleasant and attentive, the price isn't excessive for such wonderful food. The Brazilian grilled meats brought table-side and carved for each person is a delight. You can sample any or all of the grilled items as well as choose the amount of each you wish to have plated.

The Malbec wine is perfect to pair with this type of meal, yet there is a wider variety of beers and wines to select from.

In addition to the grill offerings,the buffet showcases a great range of salads and sides and meats. The hard part is all this is trying to save room for one of their wonderful desserts.

Make this restaurant one of your favorites.

We came here on New Year’s Eve for the first time and we were pleasantly surprised by our experience. All of the meat selections were excellent and they came around several times with the same selections in case you wanted another piece. The salad bar area looked clean and well maintained with a great variety of side dish options. All of which were very delicious. All of the waitstaff were extremely courteous, making sure that everyone was enjoying their experience and that everyone was getting the meat selections they wanted. This restaurant is a great value for all that you get. The only negative we had was that in the front room by the bar the tables are very close together which makes for a tight squeeze and lots of loud conversations next to you, but it’s a small inconvenience for such a great food experience.

Make no mistake, the food was fine, a bit on the salty side, but expected for Brazilian Steakhouses. The main problem is there entrance. Whichever entry used you must walk around tight quarters of table to get to receptionist. Place was 1/4 full and we had a reservation, but still waited 10 minutes before able to sit. We sat so close to the salad bar, that anymore than two people at bar would be right on top of our table and a second table of 10. Very awkward for those standing over us and invasive on our privacy. Tables and two bars set up poorly.

Unfortunately after this meal that was supposed to celebrate my boyfriends birthday, we have decided not to come back to Rio. Originally this was one of our fav places in the area... however this experience has changed our minds. We have been to Rio since it’s opening about 5 times now. The first three times Micheal was our server and he was excellent! The food was so so good and our overall experience was exceptional. The meat was cooked to perfection for all. However the last two times were not. The time before this I was “tricked” into a 15$ drink when I asked the hostess what she thought I would like to drink. This being said- I asked because there is no table drink menus available. So upon asking I assumed I would be paying 12-13 dollars for said drink. Until the bill came and I had two 15$ charges for what was probably one of the most expensive drinks on the “menu”. However the food was good. Our server, was not as great as Michael but he needs a day off every once in a while so can we really complain? The service was slow and our sides got cold while our drinks watered down waiting for food.
This last experience though- was just not good. The meat was dry and very much over cooked. Instead of sitting and waiting for our next piece we had piles of the over cooked meat on our plates. It felt super wasteful but we just could not eat it. Our server (didn’t catch his name) was very unfriendly and non interactive. We thankfully used a groupon this time, but had we not I may have asked to speak to a manager about the service. We definitely will be taking a very long break- and may even just avoid this place from now on as it’s just not what it was when it originally opened.

I would recommend this restaurant for it's food. It was excellent. I have also been very impressed with the friendly and helpful staff. Rafaella was very pleasant and helpful on our first checking the place out to see if we wanted to have our anniversary dinner there. Because of her we decided yes and have been back several time since. Overall a great restaurant experience. .

Service was fantastic! Every server was prompt and helpful.
Food was mediocre - meats were over seasoned - larger like restaurants serve higher grade.

Salad bar was adequate- good choices
Hot bar has decent selections but seemed to have been sitting there for to long.

I have been to Rio Brazilian Steakhouse many times before and will definitely go back. Totally worth the 45 minute drive. Fabulous authentic Brazilian food, especially the tableside Rodizio, attentive service, and excellent value. I recently celebrated a birthday, and was very surprised by a delicious complimentary dessert. Take my word... Don't miss it!!

I've been here 6 or 7 times and this place never disappoints. About $30 for dinner (not including alcohol) per person but it's worth it. I'm sure it's not for everyone but if you like meat you should at least try it once.

Not as good as the big chain Brazilian Steakhouse, but worth a visit and of course it’s local. Meat is good and service is very good. Salad bar is weak, relative to the big chain. Limited drink selection. I appreciate the convenience and the service. I’d say go and try!

We’ve passed Rio Brazil many times and decided to give it a try, in addition I was able to purchase a coupon. My husband has been to, what he says are outstanding Brazilian Steakhouses in Florida. This style of dining, while fun for my self, and friends we invited as first timers, the food was just ok. It felt rushed and even with our coin turned to red, meat selections were still offered.
Fun to try once, but we’ll continue exploring local eateries.
