This is a lovely family owned restaurant. My husband and I go here every year for his birthday and the staff always remember us even though we can only go once a year. It is pricey but very worth it! The meats are all very juicy and tasty! We have been to a couple chain Brazilian rozodio restaurants but none... More

Was driving through and made a quick reservation late in the evening. Arrived a few minutes early and was seated immediately. Staff was friendly. The salad bar was adequate but, lets face it, I don't go to a place like this for the salad bar! The meats were plentiful, cooked to perfection, plentiful and arrived speedily. The owner came by...

Have the Rodrizio (Limitless Brazilian BBQ). There is an a-la-carte menu but why bother? This is a carnivore's paradise. Did not try the chicken (neither drumsticks nor hearts), the round was a little tough and the pork loin a little dry - but once we had found what we liked they just kept bringing these slices of deliciousness till we...

Awesome Rodizio with excellent Sangria to top it off. Meat cooked to perfection for all likes. On Saturday reservations are a must because from what we saw the place is packed.

The food looks like it has been cooked to death ., warmed up multiple days and then served to you . When did this become acceptable. Don't waste you time . This place should be closed .

Best kept secret. We really only heard of the Ipanema once. We tried it, it was awesome! The meats were never ending and the sides/other buffet was good. A few different drinks to try also!

I'm not sure what to say about this place other that be prepared to eat! Come hungry !!!The staff and service is excellent as is the food. Make sure to try the rodizio. It's meat lovers paradise. You control how fast you are served with these little red and green "stoplights". They'll explain it to you. Very friendly staff. Not... More

We read the review about how this place was better than Fogo de Chao, and ohmyGod, they were absolutely right! Better food- the skirt steak and the rosemary-crusted lamb were frontrunners for us, but everything they had, we tried, and it was all delicious. The atmosphere was much less hectic and hurried, as well, and the service was very friendly... More

We went for my husband's birthday dinner. He has experienced one of these Brazilian restaurants before in Texas but Ipanema Grille In Scranton was the closest to us now (it was a 1 & 1/2 hr drive). It was amazing. The staff were so nice with their explanations and suggestions. Even if you think you won't like something...I'd be willing... More
