    Usually you are safe when you order a filet mignon at a steak restaurant, not this one. My friend and I both ordered the filet mignon and both were bad. What is worse. The potato wedges were also bad. The Charcoal taste was over whelming. The only good thing about the whole experience is the wine bottle was half price.

    I normally frequent The Palm, Eddie V's, Flemings, The Capital Grille and always have a great steak. I tried the Ribeye steak at the Texas Cattle Company and it was loaded with fat and gristle. I am very familiar with aged steaks and understand that the Ribeye has lots of marbling, however it just simply was not good. Our server was absolutely awesome and we never had to ask for anything. She was knowledgable, recommended appetizers as well as wine and dessert and our drinks were never empty. For upscale prices the staff was very average dressed and when I left the manager was outside near the dumpster smoking. Not a great look and not what I would expect when the prices are inline with other upscale venues.

    Outstanding food & service. We were seated within 10 minutes of our reservation time (7:00 on a Friday!) and waiter was excellent. The size of the steaks was way more than one of us could eat but they had no problem with us splitting it, but limited all-you-can-eat salad to one person. Ordered 2 sides instead because they were very reasonably priced. Juiciest ribeye steak I've ever eaten. Fried green tomatoes & mushrooms were tasty & a generous portion. Indulged in the pumpkin bread pudding with vanilla ice cream which was awesome. Can't wait to get back to Lakeland to eat there again.

    First off apparently class and manners go out the window for customers. I really didn't appreciate the table across from us talking so loud that everybody in the area could here them. Also, I waited 10 minutes to get my bill. My wife ordered a bourbon rita, she had one sip from it and didn't like it so we returned it, and of course I got charged for it. I would have said something to our waitress but I didn't feel like waiting another 10 minutes for our bill. For the amount of money I paid I will go somewhere else in the future. If I want to enjoy a nice steak in a loud atmosphere with poor service your my choice.

    I had a filet and it was cooked perfectly. Just about melted in my mouth and it had the best flavor. Even with the free Birthday entree, it is expensive, is why we cannot do this often.

    For my family the cattle company is just about the steak. I have never been disappointed, the chef got it right. We had an early reservation 5:30 it was nice and quiet, we were able to hear each other. The server we had was great she was engaging and attentive. I would have left more tip than was pre added.

    This restaurant isn't bad at all. Comparing it to most restaurants, the food and atmosphere is better, but not that much better. It has 4/5 star prices and a low end 4 or high end 3 star quality. The filet is a bit bland, but the strip steak was fairly good. Overall, I don't dislike this establishment, but it certainly doesn't live up to its prices.

    Not impressed. Salad tasted like lettuce was about to go bad or left out at room temp too long. The Texas Fries are basically last nights left over baked potatoes that they cut into wedges and deep fry (Nasty). Steak was good but it's not a 30$ steak its a 15$ steak at best.

    Our overall experience was good but we have two items that did not meet your standards. A: We had two Manhattans both were missing vermouth which the waiter saw and brought us a ounce of vermouth Drink was still second class. Three of us had a great meal as we expected but our Birthday lady had a steak about quarter inch thick and totally over cooked like as she said shoe leather. Was she disappointed would be kind.

    I have been coming to The Texas Cattle Company for years. The quality of each visit has really varied depending on the server that took care of us. This visit we were sat in the cramped aisle placed right beside a service counter, it was so dark we had to use our cell phones to see the menu. Our server was obviously new and not very sure of herself and not attentive to our needs. Our party of 4 went through the appetizers, salad and bread with only 2 sets of forks... once again having to remind her for the 4th or 5th time once our steaks were served. My steak was amazing. Boyfriend's steak was the fattiest t-bone i have ever seen. I'm sure we will be back, but will request an experienced server and better table for sure!

    We took our son and his friend to dinner and while the food was good, I thought the portions were a little light for the price. The last 2X we have been there the Texas Fries tasted like they were old baking potatoes recooked. The only other option was mashed potatoes without an upcharge and I think for the price you should have been able to pick any item on the menu. The light portions you are given are not enough to warrant an upcharge. The service as usual was excellent, but I know we would eat at this establish more except for these items.

    Although I was disappointed to learn that the Birthday Special is now limited to the 8-ounce filet or the New York Strip, the meal was better than ever. In previous years, I faithfully ordered the filet and it was usually undercooked the first time, sometimes even the second time. Last year, I ordered a lobster tail instead. This year, I returned to the filet. It was cooked perfectly the first time. We also enjoyed a huge appetizer of shrimp, escargot and fried mushrooms, most of which we took home. We also had delicious strawberry daiquiris and an apple-blueberry cobbler. This occasion was for my mom's birthday. We already have reservations for my birthday next week and are anticipating another great meal.

    We had the T bone and it was cooked perfectly. The cheesy rolls were yummy. The service was great.. she made our visit fun.. :) My only recommendation about the food is the salad tasted more like water than dressing.. wish it had more toppings.. it was like just washed lettuce.. no flavor. And the only glitch was the older woman in the next booth talking so loud into her cell phone for 10 minutes.. it interfered with our conversation. The lady was at least 65, so I want to point out it was not a young group.. just an older person behaving rudely. The drinks were outstanding and we enjoyed the Texas Blue being set on fire.. it was fun.

    While the decor is tired, the steaks as always were impeccable. I will note the salad which we normally love did not have the caliber it normally does, bowls inconsistent, chunky letttuce, mine was not dressed and only one piece of chopped olive. Service attentive though first time there wihtout a team caring for tables and lots of lag time in between awaiting drinks, etc. young lady was doing her best.

    This visit was really a let down. All three steaks were unevenly cut, over cooked and unevenly seasoned. The first bite was literally an overload of salt, leading to no flavor at all. The steaks were dry(is it aged? bad mistake if it is), and I couldn't taste the orange wood at all. Appetizers tiny, sangria had no flavor, etc. I hope you get it back together, we used to love your place. Service took nearly an hour, but we had good company.

    I recently took my new friend to Texas Cattle Company in Lakeland for our first date. It had been a long time since I had been there. I was looking for a really good steak restaurant, but I was very disappointed with the quality of the food. The salad was wilted and was full of dressing and green olives. I ate very little of it, she just tasted it. We both ordered steaks. They were a generous size, but they were so salty, they were hardly fit to eat. (I wondered later if perhaps the cook had salted them two times by mistake.) Had I known her better, I would have complained. It was just an very awkward situation. I think she was disappointed with the food too, but was just too polite to say anything or to complain.

    We always come here to celebrate birthdays and the food is always good, but the service is very hit or miss. One night, we had an excellent waitress who made my daughter's birthday dinner very special but then just a week later for my birthday, we had a different waitress and there was nothing special about it at all. Very casual atmosphere. More suited to groups instead of a romantic evening.

    Birthday party dinner for my niece who was arriving from Utah. Texas Cattle Company called my cell to confirm. 15 people all arrived at different times. Brought in a cookie cake which they took off our hands then presented it to bday girl after dinner. Waiter, Josh? Jeb? something like that was awesome. Food arrived as close as it could for 15 people. Steaks were a bit on the rarer than requested side but everybody was fine with that. (better to be underdone than overdone). I think everybody said their meal was very good. LOVE their salad. Overall very good experience.

    The food was great, service was great, but the restaurant had an unpleasant odor that permeated the dining room. With a restaurant where the prices are as high as they are here, I would expect better. This tended to distract a lot from the experience. I doubt if we will return, and if so, next time I will not stay for a meal if it is the same.

    I took my partner here for her birthday, it was both of our first times here. Although we had to pull it off like we were walking around the whole building to take a picture because we didnt realize where the entrance was ha, it was very nice as soon as we walked in. We were greeted right away, I had made reservations ahead of time, and we were seated in a very quick time. Our server was outstanding, she was friendly and very knowledgable about the company on informing us how things were prepared and such. The food was also incredible. My partner had gotten the free birthday ny strip which was delicious & I had the surf and turf w/ the scampi, highly recommended on both! But I am sure all of there food is outstanding. We loved everything!

    This was one of the few occasions that I have seen so few patrons. It was obvious after entering as the service was slow. There several parties that came in after us that were served before we even received our drinks. The server was not very attentive, and the food was a lesser quality than we have received in the past. We have gone thee for our birthdays for a number of years but do not intend to return. In February, at my wifes birthday, the fried green tomatoes were unpalatable and were sent back. The steaks were thin and not cooked per our requests. At this party, the food was only slightly improved. Not worth the money or wait.

    We have always like Texas Cattle Co. and come here when we can. I ordered the 8 oz filet and 7 oz lobster tail for my dinner. The lobster this time was almost flavorless. Hate to say that it was probably the worst I have had there. We also went during the period they gave complimentary fried scallops on a stick with a sauce. They are normally $12.50 each. All I'm going to say is that I'm glad they were complimentary and I would never pay for those. After taking the heavy coating off, there was a very small scallop. That was tasty. However, the sauce was served with an unlit candle underneath and was cold. The flavor of the sauce was terrible. My steak also tasted freezer burnt. I've truly never had this experience here.. very sad

    We find ourselves going back to Texas Cattle Company more than expected. But when we want a really awesome steak, it's the first place the comes to mind. Both the steaks and fish are outstanding, the services is always good and the price is really fit for the quality. If you want a REAL steak that has been properly aged, this is the place (or if you want the best darn grouper in town)!
