I visited this place as my first incursion into local eateries. Maybe I was expecting something else but I was underwhelmed. Then again, it was a quiet saturday afternoon and I sat at the bar. The service was ok; in a laissez-faire kinda way... The food was ok; nothing to write home about.
I'll visit somewhere else next time...
Great home cookin' with real country friendly staff, just a comfortable place with good food and old Florida atmosphere. Wednesday nights 2 for 1 prime rib special is tough to beat as are the Monday night $2 hand made burgers and killer wings too. Try it, you'll be glad you did regardless of what night you go...
Was there back in 2001 and again just this past weekend (11/1/08). Food was excellent. Two couples looking for a nice sit down meal in a supperclub style restaurant. This place did not dissappoint. The food was excellent, the service was excellent and the place was very nice for Okeechobee area. We had 2 appetizers coconut shrimp and stuffed mushrooms (yummy!) and 4 entrees: catfish (whole), prime rib, shrimp alfredo, and scallops scampi. Will definitly go back again next time in town. Large portions and everything was exactly what we expected and more. So much food we who had appetizers took half of entree home. Not bad with prices. Our two meals with 2 appetizers and the pasta dishes was at $60 and the other 2 w/o appetizers was approximately $30 (without drinks). Took a look at the bar area and it is huge, lots of room and a rustic setting. When we left there was no entertainment, so I can't comment on that.
As stated earlier, this restaurant is highly recommended.
The menu offers a large selection of meals however the beef (steaks) are their specialty. The service is somewhat focused on the bar that on the meal. It sure takes less time to have a beer than your meal. We were a group of 19 people and waited 2 1/2 hours for our plate eventhough we had made reservations and none of us had ordered complicated plate (pasta, chicken, steaks). However, the main problem with this place is not the food nor the service...it is with the front desk HOSTESS. In the past they had an hostess that was way past the age of being at the font desk of a restaurant. She was always confused operating the cash register or credit card payment. Lately this elderly hostess has been replaced with one that has ABSOLUTELY no manners, rude with customers and no appreciation for tourists. She was also rude with the server as she brought her to tears in front of the group for a non issue. She was very vocale with our group that she didn't need our money to operate the business. The group (bet 15 - 20 people) has enjoyed going to Brahma Bull for the past several year during our winter holidays but due to the negativity of the Hostess our group decided to not support this local restaurant anymore.
Had Dinner and Stayed Until They Closed That Night (2:00am).... Food Was Great Service was Friendly(Fried Shrimp and and Prime Rib) The Entertainment Was Excellent - Great Live Band Music....

We went as a family for dinner. There are 5 of us and we were fairly early on a saturday. It wasn't busy and we were seated immediatly. The waitress was nice and the service was fast. Our steaks were a bit underdone, but the kids meals were a good size for the price. The ultimate suprise was when we got the check. It had an 18% gratuity added in , as apparently, that was the norm here. It was stated in the menu, and we apparently missed that part. Now we weren't a large party of 5 adults... we were a small family of 2 adults and 3 kids 10 and under. We were very supprised and made a decision not to go back.
