it was OK. The meat was good as much as you can eat! The salad bar was OK but try not to fill your tank on it. The dessert was the shinning star here wow it was good. Please try the mango butter cake it will not disappoint.

Outstanding food at a reasonable price for the amount and quality of food you are getting. Great that the salad bar is so well stocked. The service was excellent and the servers were all very pleasant. Could not ask for a better place to have an evening out for dinner with the family.

We had a group of around 40 show up for dinner at this restaurant located next door to the Marriott we were staying at in City Center, Newport News. Had a terrific time with a fun staff making the event!

We were here for a birthday celebration. The food selections were plentiful. There were a few items that we really enjoyed and others not so much. The ambiance was nice as well. The price point is good too.

This place is fantastic and very similar to steak houses in Brasil. Even the grilled pineapple is the same as in Brasil. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Had a great time at this restaurant. The salad bar was wonderful with a great selections of foods. Choose the "meat" on the menu and they come out with individual skewers of different meats and give you a slice. So you taste a lot of different flavors. Really neat experience.

We went here just about a year ago. Service and food great. This time, not so lucky. No flan, no creme brulee. Out of way too many things that were printed in the menu, not specials. Not sure if i would give them a 3rd try after this visit.

If you're a meat lover, this is the restaurant for you. Constant flow of different types of meat arrive at your table until you turn the wooden block to red (stop.) Don't get thick pieces, instead ask for thinner slides so that you can enjoy the savory taste. Stick to medium rare for more succulent taste. Enjoy!!!
