“Stick with the rodizio”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 November 2013

We've been here several times but decided to try a meal on our last trip instead of getting the rodizio. While our meal was adequate, it was nothing special. They did accommodate my allergy however it seemed to take a while for us to receive our entrees. My dessert, the Brazillian Cheesecake was good but the middle was still frozen.

The rodizio is much more fun with a group. The wait staff returns to your table as long as your indicator is set to the green side up. If you flip it to the red side up, they will stop offering you meat. Vegetables and potatoes are served family style.

They offer weekly specials via email and have some special events such as live music and dance shows. The space is small so I'm not sure how the accommodate these events.

“My kids love this place!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

Okay, so you know it is 2013 when you choose a restaurant that your children like better than you do...

The only consideration to be aware of with the Stable is that on the 6 or 8 visits in the last year, service can waiver on lighter evening when discounts are offered such as Monday or Tuesday nights when you might be given a coupon, but not so many customers are there to make keeping the normal variety of meats being offered. Or you may find they are overcooked, or simply not enough. On a Saturday night, you can get ALL the meats normally prepared for Rodizio, their all-you-can-eat-meat service, but its happened more than once that we didn't get the lamb or the nice beef cuts because they "ran out." They don't tell you before you order, so MAKE SURE TO ASK do they have all the meats you enjoy. Otherwise, this is an expensive way to eat mediocre cuts of chicken beef and pork.

“Hit or Miss- great if you go on a good day!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2013 via mobile

This place CAN be excellent- perfectly cooked steak, delicious sides, attentive servers, etc. the problem is that they are not consistently good. One time we went for a special occasion and our steaks were WAY over cooked, and the waiter completely ignored us, as we were sitting outside. But most visits the food is very good. One tip...don't sit in the kitchen seating area (where they cook the meats) if you are squeamish- I found all the raw meats around us to be gross while trying to eat.

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2013

I brought my mom there for her birthday and it was excellent. We went on a Saturday afternoon, not too busy and found parking without a problem. The bread and dip was very good, the dip being a mixture of fresh herbs, garlic and mint oil...soooo yummy! The house salad was delish with a light oil and vinegar slightly sweet but not too sweet, don't know what the secret ingredient was. I had the skewers of meat $19.99 which was quite the variety with the best being the chicken, sausage and skirt steak...the meat just kept being delivered to the table...all you can eat. Sides were also delish, grilled veggies, potatoes and rice and beans. Mom had the porterhouse steak , $45, with was 5 times bigger that what she could eat! Loaded with onions and peppers on top, served with mashed potatoes and spinach...she loved it...but brought home a big doggy bag! Service was excellent and atmosphere very nice...we ate inside but there was outside dining available. I would highly recommend this place and will definitely go again to try other things on the menu!
