The entrees were all overcooked, very dry, inferior cuts of meat and poorly seasoned. The side dishes were not tasty, after 30 minutes of sitting there hungry with empty plates our waitress finally asked the meat guy to start bringing us food. Everything I ate was unsatisfactory, I'm shocked this place can stay in business. It was a really bad... More

Maybe we weren't lucky, we went there on Sunday and probably all the meat were leftovers from the weekend but the meat, the chicken, everything was VERY dry. We ended up filling up with stews from the salad bar. Service wasn't great and they had "LIVE MUSIC' which was a guy with a Karaoke who made it even worse, sings... More

Even for all you can eat for $12.95/lunch, the Midwest Grill is an embarrassment to churrascaria food. There are basically 3 parts to their buffet - the cold Brazilian - which is your basic salad and off the shelf dressings, olives straight from bottles, tuna salad and macaroni salad. Apparently artichoke hearts, and hearts of palm are too exotic. The... More

Went there with my friends for lunch. The food was so so: the salads from buffet were warm, and from all the meat served I liked only beef and pork. Chicken was absolutely dry, lamb was bad, beef ribs too fat. In addition to this, the waiter was very careless when serving, my fiance's clothes were all stained with no... More

The Midwest grill looks modern from the outside but once inside it has a rustic feel. Parking is on the street. We were greeted as soon as we walked in the door and service continued to exceed our expectations. There was no wait as we were instructed to start at the salad bar. There was a hot and cold salad...

This has rapidly become my favourite local restaurant. Their staff (kitchen, waitstaff, and management) really do an excellent job of making a meal there a wonderful experience, whether you're eating in or getting takeout. The food is delicious, my favourite of all churrascarias in the Boston area, but it's really the staff that keep me coming back. Speaking of the... More

I went on a Saturday night with my family. Friday and Saturday nights they charge $4 more per person, so I was expecting this to be a "good" night to go. The place wasn't busy, but we were a little early (around 5:30 or 6) so we didn't take this as an omen ... Our server was definitely "low class",... More

This was our first time at a Brazilian BBQ. The dinner buffet was $19.95 per person but they automatically add 18% to parties of 6. I didn't like this but what can you do. I feel if they know they are getting a good tip already, sometimes the service is just horrid. Well I was right and our waitress wasn't... More
