  • "We were recommended Texas Cattle Company because they offer Free Birthday Steak Dinner. Just note: You have to have a valid FL Drivers License. We were very disappointed in the customer service, as we just moved to Lakeland 3 weeks ago and do not yet have our FL license, so they would honor the free birthday meal. Regardless, we stayed for dinner and it was excellent. We just would have expected a restaurant that wants to drive repeat business and celebrate by word of mouth to have honored the Birthday dinner. WE will recommend the food, but not the establishment's customer service and will be sure to forewarn friends of the FL license expectation."

  • "Wow, it has been a long time since my last visit but it was better than I remember it!!! The old brown and serve rolls were replaced with cheesey garlic rolls (to die for) and the birthday celebration goes for the entire month of your birth, what more can you ask for!!! The service staff did an excellent job...we had a party of 23 and we were in and out in around 2.5 hours and never had to wait on refills!!! Finally the amount of food a person gets is the largest I've seen in any restaurant!!! Texas Cattle Company is definitely my favorite steak place!!! Thanks for never letting me down!!!"

  • "I never miss out on my birthday dinner free steak at TCC. Steaks are pricey, but mine is free for my birthday and it is really the best steak in town."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Had my birthday meal there, and it was perfect in every way! The steaks, sides, appetizers all were great. The special cheese bread is yummy, and endless! Hannah, our server was fantastic...be sure to ask for her...she was ahead of the game all the way through!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Reservation made and seated within 10 minutes of reservation. Very slow service. Expect a long dinner if you going during the prime time. Drinks come slow. Steaks are wonderful (a little salty - be sure to request less salt if that is an issue)! The garden salad was not good, wilted lettuce, too much oil. Bread is awesome!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We tried the fried gator tail, was super yummy. The horseradish sauce for dipping was great. Server was very attentive. Asked for Moscato, but they didnt have any available. Salad was good, bread was awesome. Steaks were buttery and table side baked potato toppings was fun. We took home a slice of chocolate cake that wasn't anything spectacular."

  • "Have always looked forward to dining at Texas Cattle company, although, this time fillets were cooked properly but were not up to standard of prime meat..."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Sure, it is overpriced a bit - but the steak is worth it. Been there before and loved the Rib-Eye, but when we went for my wifes free birthday steak we thought it might be a small portion with no sides! NOT the case. The NY Strip Birthday Steak was more than she could finish and tasted fantastic. I got one too. All sides were included. The one drawback was the waitress. She talked incredibly fast and just acted like she wanted to leave as quickly as possible from our table. Follow up after serving was OK, but not what it should have been at a higher end restaurant. On the Birthday Deal, 18% gratuity was included - maybe she was not giving us the attention we deserved because it was a guaranteed tip. Otherwise it was a tasty night out."

  • "Our waitress, Natalia, was excellent! The appetizer and entree that she suggested to us was delicious! We will definitely be visiting again!"

  • "This is a local favorite with good steaks at fair price. Be prepared for an energetic noise level. Wine list is not special and they have their own wine label that I didn't try."

  • "they weren't really that busy for a fathers day like we expected. we waited almost an hour for our food to come out. once it arrived, we realized it was another tables order and not even ours. our drinks didn't get refilled. the server took our salad bowls and was going to bring out more.. never did. so at the end we got them to go. definitely wasn't pleased with texas this time around."

  • "We had a reservation for 7:15pm. When we arrived, we were told that they were running a little behind and it would be another 15 minutes. Not a problem. However, after 20 minutes we asked if they knew how long. We were told another 10 minutes. Next time we asked, we were told another 15 minutes. This continued on until 8:30pm when were finally told them something needed to be done or we were going to have to leave. We had 5 small children with us and they were getting quite hungry. Someone at one time came and got our drink orders outside where we were waiting but never brought our drinks. When we finally were seated and our food came, some of our dinner was missing and never brought to us. There were no apologies from anyone."

  • "We drove from Tampa and went here for my husband's birthday and it was worth the drive. We could smell the wood-fire when we walked in and the food was delicious. We had the gator, NY Strip, and the Mac N Cheese. All of it was fantastic! The service was good and waitress was attentive. The ambience is ok...the lights from a pool hall were quite ugly."

  • "Hi We always enjoy the food and service, but it was my sons birthday and I had reserved a table for 8 on a weeknight, we were seated in a booth and we all felt really cramped with no elbow room. So we really could not chat with each other while dining, it was pretty much face forward and for what I had paid I expected a more pleasant dining experience. Don't get me wrong the food and service are great but the accommodations for our party were not well thought out."

  • "We went for my birthday, as always it was a great experience and the server was a delight."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "My only concerns was the salad must have been setting in the dressing for a long time. The greens were very limp. I think they should serve the dressing on the side. The bread was rock hard and over baked. We came home with the bread and gave it our dogs who had a great time crunching down on it. As for the steaks they are the best that I have had in a long time but I could have went to Logan's in Orlando and got them for a better price."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "After years of dining at the Texas Cattle Co. five or six times a years, taking advantage of their birthday special for all the members of our family and as well as special occasions , this year my daughter was refused a free dinner because she changed here drivers license to an out of state license. Over the years we have spent lots of dollars there we did not appreciate the technicality which we were not aware. From now on we will do our celebrating at Bern's Steak House, which always has treated us well and been very hospitable."

  • "Best steaks I've had in central Florida. Nice servers with your dining experience paramount to them. Overall, an excellent evening for my wife and I. Won't hesitate to return asap."

  • "It was about 12 of us out for enjoyable meal and some of our group were from Ohio and we (Floridians) wanted to show off. Everyone was amazed at how great the food was - the T-bone and pork chops were a hit. The next time they are in town, we must take them there. We love this restaurant. We live in Brandon/Valrico area and we come whenever we get a chance."

  • "My husband took me out for my birthday because we have enjoyed TCC in the past. Josh was an exceptional waiter. The kitchen was on the slow side, and although my steak was perfect, my husband's was definitely overcooked even though we ordered exactly the same cut done medium. Josh and the manager immediately ordered him another steak, and we ate the rest of our meal. A third of the lobster tail was undercooked and translucent. The manager took the lobster off our bill and offered me free dessert. The replacement steak finally came out and my husband said it was one of the best steaks he had ever had. Please fix whatever is wrong in the kitchen so the meal is right the first time....we want to love you!"

  • " Arrived for dinner Sunday June first, rain came pouring down the time was 4:00 PM. I inquired if we could wait inside out of the down pour waiter said he would have to call with the manager. There was at least 15 people dodging rain, we stepped inside anyway the other guest did the same it was now past 4:00 PM. We were the first to arrive and the next to last to be seated. The light at the table was very dim I requested to move to the table in front of us so we all could see better, table set for two I had to get my own setting. The server was kind and knowledgeable about the menu however the food was average. I do not mind paying for good food and service unfortunately neither was accomplished. Probably will not recommend or return. "

  • "Reservation made for 8:00 PM. Wasn't seated until 8:45 PM even though the place wasn't busy. Ordered the filet mignon. Took 1 hr to receive. Dry and cold by the time I received it. I've dined at this establishment several times and although it is usually slow, this time it was awful. Not sure why. Service seems to have continually gone down hill. Server mentioned they were having problems with the walk-in coolers. Don't know why this affected our wait time and food condition. Disappointing. "

  • "We had thirty people in our party, they had us in a private room, we had two dedicated servers who absolutely took care of us. We had taken the wedding cake over there earlier that day and they had it displayed on a separate table for everyone to see. The food was awesome, service was great and no one rushed us out. I had bragged about the cattle company to all my out of state guests, and they did not let me down as the food proved to be amazing and everyone was thoroughly happy and full when we left :). Thank you so much for making my wedding reception beautiful and a night to remember!!!"

  • "We enjoyed our visit to the Texas Cattle Company in Lakeland. The food was great, the service was outstanding. Kortlyn was very friendly and helpful. The steaks were a bit overdone...mine was ordered medium rare and came out medium. A friend ordered a filet medium well. It came out VERY well done. Overall the food tasted good. The chicken fried bacon was outstanding! The biggest complaint we had was that the restaurant was COLD. It was rainy and cool outside and the air conditioning was blowing right on us. We asked that it be turned down, but it didn't seem to make a difference. Being from Maine, the cold didn't bother me too much, but other guests at our table were very cold. "

  • "We go once or twice a year. My hubby loves their steak and we've never had a problem w/ it. We both love the salad w/ blue cheese crumbles (unlimited), potatoes, and my husband always gets the grilled onions. The one problem I've had is I struggle to find a seafood plate that I like. They offer fish, but other seafood is offered as appetizers. Years ago they had a jumbo shrimp stuffed w/ crab which I loved. Now I choose 2 appetizers instead. The dang bang shrimp and bacon wrapped scallops are delicious, but the scallops are way over priced. They were the size of a quarter and around $12-13 for four! "

  • "$90 for fillet mignon for two with sides and (non-alcoholic) cocktails is fair value. It's not high-end dining. Fits in above the Outback / Longhorn level but not up to the Ruth's Chris / Morton's level. Service, contrary to recent reviews, was nicely attentive."
