    Great staff. The ambiance was OK. The food was good. If I could change anything it would be the chips and blue cheese were a bit oily. I did the cowboy porterhouse and each bite melted in my mouth. For Florida, this is a top notch steakhouse.

    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

    Great food, great food! Superior service!! As someone in the customer service industry, I notice when I am treated well by waitstaff. And when I am not. We had Excellent service. There was a waitress and a waiter and they were both so far beyond what we have experienced at several other restaurants lately we even joked those other places should send their wait staff to Texas Cattle Co for training.

    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)!

    took my father there for a celebration dinner. Was shocked that on a party of 3 that gratuity was added. I always tip 20-25% but since the restaurant already added a lower percentage, I just let it slide and I did not add more. Come to think of that. They shorted the server out of a good tip. The prices on the steaks are extremely high. We ate 3 days later at Texas Road house, steaks were huge and extremely good, yet was only about 1/3 the cost of Texas Cattle Company. We had good service but with one free steak the bill was still over $70 what the? And there were no alcoholic beverages ordered. I can not receommend this place to my friends unless they win the lottery. I noticed the restaurant was only about half full at 6:30 pm

    We each ordered Cowboys (T-bones - medium rare). After appetizers and salads, we were still wow'd by the steaks....tender and delicious the leftovers have given us us four additional steak meals. Because the meat was cooked perfectly to order we have eaten the leftovers cold and the steak is still flavorful and tender.

    To find a better night out than the Texas Cattle Co. in the Lakeland area you would have to built it and spend a life time fine tuning it. TCC has the upper hand on local steaks and if you haven't tried their pork chops you have never eaten real pork! Four of us spent an evening at TCC celebrating my 78th birthday and, like many times before, simply enjoyed everything from the first "Hello" to the last bite of some superior food. The wait staff was excellent, the food was cooked to perfection, and the ambiance was delightful. TCC is this area's top spot for a most pleasant, and certainly more than filling, evening.

    There is nothing like the rib eye cooked Pittsburgh rare! I think about it for days in advance. No one does it like Texas Cattle Company. If I lived closer I'd have it every Sunday for dinner. I'm an hour and a half away from Lakeland but that rib eye is worth the drive and it will keep me loyal to Texas Cattle Company for as long as they offer it on the menu!

    We went to Texas Cattle Co in Lakeland to celebrate my birthday and we only had a party of 6. We instantly got seated which was great but they tried to put us in a tiny booth & we said no we need a table with chairs. We had at least 5 different people come to our table to ask if we needed anything, we couldn't remember who anyone was or who our original waiter was suppose to be. When we finally got our food no one came back until it was time to give us the checks which was horrible considering not everyone liked their food. Good thing the 18% gratuity is automatically cause they sure as sugar wouldn't have gotten that much at all! Some of the food was great but horrible service!

    When there for my birthday for the free birthday steak. I remember a few years ago that you didn't need to order an entree in order to have the steak dinner for free, so don't go alone. I didn't like also the fact that there was an automatic 18% gratuity added to the check for wanting the birthday dinner (don't get me wrong, I always tip, but never 18% if I don't feel like they deserve it). So if you are saving up because you don't have a big budget, make sure to factor in the extra entree and automatic tip. But I was very happy to be greeted with "Happy Birthday" when the employees saw my birthday crown (yes I'm 23 and I wore a birthday crown).

    Dined on 8/22/2014
    It was my birthday, and I recommended this restaurant to family, and we waited for our appetizers for 30 min after we ordered, then 45 min for our checks. Then when they came they were all fouled up and we kept getting told she had to get with the manager. We had 3 servers for a party of 9 and they were not communicating with eachother. one would bring something and the other would duplicate it, or not bring it at all. They didn't explain specials or the menu to us, and everyone was very frustrated. I felt bad for wasting my families time for 3 hours for dinner that was supposed to be shorter. Food was good, when we finally got it. The decor needs some updating.

    Had a bad feeling right from the start after arriving on time for a 7:00 & told to have a seat. Was celebrating a birthday & wanted to make an impression. Dang Bang Shrimp was ok. Salad was less than ok. Main course arrived before several mouthfuls (thankfully). That's when the pace started to take on a Denny's atmosphere. My main course was fine, hers was undercooked. We wanted to eat together so it didn't go back. Desert tray was offered well before last bite and the offerings were nothing to write about. Tip was included in bill, so no option there. Also, be advised for birthday discount, the server requests your drivers license & holds it for the "Manager".

    The food here, though pricey is very good. I happen to have a gluten allergy but my situation can apply to so many people with other dietary needs. Not only do they not have an allergy menu but the staff is not trained to even be familiar with people with allergy conditions. Virtually all restaurants I have been to either have an allergy menu or have staff willing to ask the knowledgeable chef how something might be easily prepared to accommodate special needs diners. I ended up eating a dry salad since they couldn't even look into what salad dressings don't have gluten (which is most of them). One staff member told me all their butter had gluten and another told me that there was plain butter available. The service wasn't coordinated.

    We arrived 10 minutes before our reservation time 7:00 PM. At about 7:15 my son spoke to the hostess. She told him that we had stated, the rest of our party was not there yet. This was a lie, our entire party was there. She also told him that the table we were waiting on had not left yet, we were also told this when we checked in, also not true. We were finally seated at 7:30, our waitress came right to the table and gave us menus and took our drink order, we got out drinks at 8:00. Our waitress was good but she had too many tables to take care of which caused poor service. We waited an unnecessary amount of time on everything! But the food was excellent! I tried to call the next day to speak with a manager, but no one answered the phone.

    My Husband and I celebrated our 31st anniversary Saturday evening and was seated in a somewhat quiet area. I say somewhat since there were a couple larger parties of 8 so naturally it wasn't as quiet as we thought it was. Our Waiter, Colin (I think) was very pleasant but almost "overkill" with kindness, in the beginning. Then as the larger parties were seated we hardly saw him at all and he was apologizing all over himself. As always the food was great and we will continue to come there, although a tad over our normal budget! Thank you. Barbara

    I was in from out of town on business and was in the mood for a good steak. Boy did I find it! I had the 8 oz. filet topped with bleu cheese. It was perfect! The salad is the same for everyone with dressing already applied making it a little soggy but the chopped green olives gave it an extra zing. I choose the Texas Fries with my meal. What I would have liked to choose but wasn't an option, was baked sweet potato. My waiter, Xavier, was wonderful. He was the correct amount of attentive without interrupting my meal too often. He engaged in conversation when I started it but, otherwise, he allowed me to enjoy my meal in peace. I would definitely recommend TCC for a meal. Be sure to make a reservation otherwise the wait would be too long.
