This has been one of our favorite steak restaurants for many years. No where else has steaks which are as flavorful, tender and just delicious. Another favorite of ours is the cedar plank salmon - the topping is out of this world wonderful. Our server was great as well - very attentive, but not intrusive. From the salad, cheese rolls, to main course to decadent desserts - always a restaurant we enjoy. As for the 'ambiance' - it's a steak house...old furnishings - not exactly 'elegant' but that's not 'us' anyway. Only issues we ever have there are other guests at nearby tables who are just loud and annoying - but that's not the fault of the restaurant....just our luck.

Texas cattle has a western feel with its decor and wait staff. Steaks are generously cut and cooked perfectly just about every time.

Stakeout this Steakhouse
Our party of three Wednesday night birthday dinner was a delight! The birthday girl and her lady guest both had the coconut shrimp appetizer. The host treated himself to escargot. We all sampled from each others plates with unanimous yes votes. For entrées the ladies ordered filet mignon; the birthday girl had hers medium rare, the guest ordered medium well done. Both proclaimed them perfect to their tastes! I had the two bacon wrapped medallions, upgrading from shrimp to lobster tail. Fantastic! We are always more than satisfied with the splendid house salad, and love your cheesy bread. We were truly flattered when members of your staff stopped by with personal birthday greetings. AND Wednesday night wine pricing should not be overlooked.

Took my husband here for his birthday. Great that there is still a place to get a free meal on your birthday! Steaks were AMAZING and service was PHENOMENAL. Love Josh! He did a great job of making my husband feel special. Great drinks (love Kendra's Bourbon Margarita) and nice quiet atmosphere. Perfect for a romantic dinner.

great birthday visit
this was a great visit for my birthday. my girlfriend and i had great steaks and loved the salad. the chocolate raspberry cake slice was 6 layers and oh so delicious.

Great birthday dinner
They have a great birthday dinner deal and the food and service was great but we were seated in a booth on the other side of an open wall next to a large party with not one but two fussy babies. When you are going out for a nice dinner this kind of ruins the ambience.

A VERY NICE PLACE TO GO FOR SPECIAL EVENINGS. FOOD WAS GREAT AND PLENTIFUL
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pleasant experience. The NY was tasty and tender. My wife's porkchop was very good. Both items cooked as ordered.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our food was so delicious.Steak was perfectly cooked. chicken was very pretty presentation and was superb.The side order was larger than other places where i have eaten.

My experience was outstanding, however, your ID method needs updated or changed to accomadate all Floridians. Only those who have a drivers liscense are currently recognized as those who have a right to a nice birthday dinner each year. As a retired nurse with a handicap, I feel this needs discussion by your board that makes choices to make us an equal person to any other Floridian that can have a driver's lic.
I love your restaurant and come as often as I can get a friend to go there-entire menu is terrific.

food was great best ever had service was fast and very polite
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
the service was the best we have ever had and the food we can not say enough good things. im glad we were told about this place for our anniversary dinner. the only negative thing we have to say is we had to wait a very long time for our bacon wrapped scallopes . the came out with our meal.
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have been to Texas Cattle Company twice and have enjoyed great meals both times. The last occasion was my Birthday. I couldn't believe the free steak I received! It was wonderful!!! They do add an 18% gratuity to your Birthday bill which is completely understandable. Our waitress was excellent! She was very attentive and very knowledgeable. The only complaint I have is that it needs a little sprucing up! The surfaces and decore are worn and old. This includes the menu's. The food is absolutely wonderful though and we will be going back again and again!!
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is a good restaurant.
This is a good restaurant. Food portions are high and the flavor is excellent. We enjoyed the service. Typical dining experience that you find in most $$ priced Open Table restaurants.

Thank you so much for Making a Birthday Celebration a success. I had called ahead to make reservations for Sat Sept 28, for my sons birthday, which wasn't until Monday Sept 30. Because several of our party lives out of town, and had to go to work on Monday, we chose to celebrate it on Saturday. I kind of expected a little bit of an issue, because we wanted to celebrate early. There was NO issue at all... I REALLY Appreciate Texas Cattle Co and it's staff. Thanks again, we will be back, and we Will recommend other to your establishment.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Service was exceptional. Our waitress was most attentive, make sure everything was exactly as it should be, and took extra time to answer our questions. It was also great food, tried swordfish for the first time, and it was good. Always love the salad.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
AUCE is AWESOME
Went for a belated birthday dinner. Ordered the Monday night special, AUCE Steak and Shrimp for $19.95. It was amazing. Unlimited Salad comes with the meal as well. Overall an outstanding night.
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best steaks in town. Great Birthday deal. Awesome service.
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Free meal always a bonus, but . . .
Even though I order the filet mignon every year, it's always a little bit of a disappointment. The restaurant is so dim that when we are asked to cut into the filet to check the doneness, it's hard to tell if it's cooked properly. Many times, I've thought it was only to realize after a few bites that it was rare instead of medium or medium rare. Lately, I've started sending it back to get it right - one year it took three times. We were here for my Mom's b-day last week. When we return Monday for my b-day, I will try something else, like the lobster tail. We also missed the onion rings and the chocolate cake this year. The service was outstanding and we appreciate that very much.

Texas Cattle has been my favorite
Texas Cattle has been my favorite place to enjoy a great steak since 1992.

Although we were seated in
Although we were seated in a tiny booth for two, the food was worth it. R ibeye Steak and loaded garlic-mashed potatoes were absolutely outstanding!!! Garlic cheese bread was excellent. And wine recommended by our server was perfect with our meal. We had two servers who worked together to assure all was well.
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent service, waited a little long for meal, besides that everything was exciting.
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service was terrific. The food delicious and plentiful. The salad was tremendous and very tasty. Our filets were tender and cooked to perfection. The lobster tails were very large and meaty. So good! We really liked the western atmosphere. We would definitely return for more.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
The best steaks in Polk county! The service staff are freindly and knowledgable, eager to explain any specials for the dinner. You can't go wrong by selecting the Texas Cattle Company as your dinning venue.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had an excellent experience. the food was great, service perfect and special request made at time of reservation was taken care of perfectly. The only issue we had was the table next to us got a bit loud but nothing unbearable.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a steak!
I had the prime cut ribeye and it was so tasty. The oak flavor in the steak made it taste like it was cooked on a campfire. My only complaint is the chef who cooked mine didn't know how to cook a blue rare steak. He over cooked my blue rare ribeye and another guest at our table's blue rare filet. They were still rare just not blue rare. The taste was out of this world. the steak was so big I didn't have room for one french fry.
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great steakhouse. Food is
Great steakhouse. Food is pricey but good. My steak was cooked medium although I ordered it med-rare. The house Merlot was pretty decent. There's a good selection of wines on their wine list.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing. This first my fiancé and I have went and it was great.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
My friend celebrated her 90th birthday at Cattleman's and enjoyed herself, and so did I. Her only disappointment was that even though we were there at 5pm, her choice of fish was not available. She tried the salmon but didn't care for it like the swordfish that she usually has for the meal. We also shared the mixed pre meal dish that had a lot of different goodies. We will be back.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our meal was absolutely superb. Jason and Wes were professional, polished and appropriately humorous servers! They were well informed and so accommodating. Salad is all you can eat; the dressing is delectable! I had 3 helpings, my husband had 2 and added blue cheese crumbles. For dinner, I had the 14oz filet & my husband had the bone-in ribeye cooked to perfection; exactly as we had ordered & as described in menu. Luscious! Outstanding! One of our friends had the wang bang shrimp appetizer as an entrée & said it was incredible. The other friend had the chopped steak. He loved it but was not able to eat more than half before he was full. I had a delicious Key Lime Martini. The glass was dipped in graham cracker crumbs! Marvelous!
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food and Service
I was in a group of 3 for a Birthday Celebration, our waiter, Collin was AWESOME!!! He has been my waiter on prior visits and the serivce he provides is nothing short of exceptional. The food is always good, although (for whatever reason) it did take some time for our main entree's to arrive. Other than that, our dining experience was great. Can't wait to go back for more!
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun family night out
We enjoyed our fun family night out at Texas Cattle company!! The atmosphere was energetic and the servers very friendly. But, don't forget the food which was very flavorful and cooked to perfection. Thank you.

Special Birthday treat dining
Birthday celebrants (only on actual date), get a part of their entrée free, appx. $25.00 & the food ix basic steaks, filet & offers other meats. House salad is as much as you can eat and is excellent, especially when you add Maytag blue cheese ( a small extra charge).
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good food and good place to eat for special occasions. A little pricey for routine outings.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Hoping for better the next time
Long time customer, love the Rib eye. Wife's Filet disappointing, lacked the usual and anticipated flavor. Will return with "guarded optimism"
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fabulous First Time
I was recently in Lakeland for business and heard about TCC from some of the locals. Glad I took the advice. I have to say, out of all the steak houses I’ve visited in my travels; the price here for the quality (and quantity) is unbelievable. The atmosphere is cozy and the service was outstanding as well. I will make it a point to add TCC to my in-town restaurant rotation.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Love the Texas Cattle Co. Steaks are great and the parmesan cheese kettle potatoes were delicious. Nice to be served enough to fill you up and have enough to carry home for another small meal the next night. Our lovely waitress, Christine (not sure of name), was excellent.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
We love the Texas Cattle Company. We go for EVERY birthday as they give a $25.95 dinner credit if you have your driver's license. And the steaks are incredible. Its a family thing for us. And the lake out front for a short stroll before or after dinner is a nice touch.
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Texas Cattle rules!
I love Texas Cattle! Great food, great service, and a just an overall great place!
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Best steaks in Town, hands down! Went for a Birthday and loved the food and service.
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Special Occasion Dinner
The steaks were good as usual. The bread was good and I am glad they now offer a side dish with your entree. I was not a fan of buying a baked potato.
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
I came here for my boyfriends birthday for the first time. They had awesome service, my waiter Collin was absolutely fantastic. I had an awesome meal they cooked my steak perfectly and the appetizers were delicious. I would recommend this place very highly
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
For a restaurant that is FAMOUS for Steaks - you need to let people know how GREAT your Salmon is.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Enjoyed a tender 10 oz filet red potatoes ayce salad and bread. Bread has changed since my last visit for the better. Disappointed in the beer selection on tap so we passed on having a beer.
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food and service. I've been going to.this restaurand for many years for special occasions. Now I go almost every 3_months. Steaks and Bang B. Shrimp are #2 Texas de Braxil #1 and Manny's #3

Ambience and Excellent Steak
Nice all wood ambience with soft yellow lighting. Not too loud for a romantic meal.
I had the cowboy cut medium rare with a "Pittsburg" crust. Never had steak that way but it was medium rare to the center with a nice black crust. I was happy to see that the steaks came with all you could eat house salad (a garden salad). That house salad was made with a vinaigrette and was very heavy with green olives. I loved it but if you don't like green olives make sure to ask for your salad without them. The steaks were above average but not spectacular.
The scallops wrapped in bacon were HUGE and tender and the Escargot was excellent though came without cheese. Save your garlic butter to dip your steak and the fresh baked bread!

Changed their birthday steak rules
My husband and I go here every year for his birthday. We bring a large group of friends with us everytime. In the past Texas Cattle will give you a free CowGirl steak on your birthday. ($26 value) They just changed their policy to buy a meal with value of $26 or more get your steak free. This might not be a problem people who are ordering another steak but I don't eat steak or salmon. I love their Dang Bang shrimp on the appitizer menu. I always order that and a baked potato. I say all that just to warn people who always go on their birthday that their policy has changed. They are very nice at handling birthdays. I had homade a cheesecake for my husband and brought it in. They offered to sing happy birthday and gave us plates.
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very quite, people were all very friendly, great steaks.
