Grill Club Churrascaria

****NOTE: THIS WRITE UP IS LEFT IN FOR HISTORICAL INTEREST.
     THE GRILL ROOM IS CLOSED AND WILL NOT REOPEN. A GREAT TASTY CONCEPT IN WHAT SEEMS LIKE A TOUGH LOCATION-MANY DECENT RESTAURANTS HAVE FAILED IN THIS SPOT, YET  ADJACENT ROY'S, AND STONEY'S HAVE DONE WELL-GO FIGURE.

Great steaks and Gauchos!

The Grill Club is still under the radar for some people; that is quickly being remedied by word of mouth, and by the crowd's enthusiastic sampling of their food at 2008's Taste of Collier.

Their steaks are second to none. I enjoy getting just the cuts of meat I like (the charred part!), from the traveling gauchos, each with a sword-skewer of one of over fifteen choices. There is no menu, just sample the deliciouly open-fire roasted foods, as they bring them by your table. Try sirloin (alcatra), top sirloin (picanha), Skirt steak (fraudinha), cajun shrimps, leg of lamb, beef ribs, bbq pork ribs, Brazilian sausage, filet mignon wrapped in bacon, chicken breast wrapped in bacon, tender chicken drumsticks, even skewered shrimp and fish!

One Section of Appetizer Bar and a Full House!

Another Part of Appetizer Bar
More Appetizer Bar
Here's the deal-start with unlimited appetizers- over 40 hot and cold to savor, including 6 different cheeses, white sardines, fresh oysters, and over a dozen fresh and grilled veggie offerings -enough to make a vegetarian swoon!

Order a Capirinha, the Brazilian national drink, made from cachaca (sugarcane rum), sugar, ice and a diced lime-it's the best! Then clear the decks, er the plates, as the gauchos come by with different cuts of meat and seafood, and serve you just the cut you want.

Imagine all-you-can-eat at a top steak house,well, this it it, for only $39. To put that in perspective, just one steak, without sides, will cost over that at some of Naples and Fort Myers steak houses, and you pay big time for veggies and a starch. Yes! Here there's an unlimited immense salad bar. The real deal!

Save room for desserts, each for only $6.95, be it a Flambé or their signature Passion Fruit Mousse. I'm coming back for the Ricotta Cheese cake with Brazilian Coffe Syrup, Sorbets, and their Tiramisu!
