Overall, I'm glad to have this restaurant as another option in Charleston. The salad bar isn't quite up to par with the national chains like Texas de Brazil or Fogo de Chao, but the meats are reasonably well-prepared. The picanha is as tasty as I've had anywhere. The service is warm and attentive. I read another review saying they are stingy with the meat. That wasn't my experience at all. Our server knew the picanha was our favorite and brought it around SIX times. You won't experience that at a national chain. Do they have room for improvement? Yes. Is it a business worth supporting in the local community? Yes. At least they are trying to offer something other than the Ryan's alluded to in another review. Charleston gets what it deserves. Please give this place a chance.
I know the caipirinhas are awesome (I asked them to add them to their drink menu and gave them the recipe when they first opened). I was surprised at my next visit that they actually took my suggestion and added the drink. The point of telling you this is, I believe they are open to constructive criticism. I believe with time, they can be as good as the national chains. Wouldn't it be nice to not have to drive to Columbus?
