    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.

    I was extremely upset that they would not accept my daughter's Florida I.D. to show it was her birthday. They said it has to be a drivers license. She doesn't have a drivers license. Other than that, the steak was very good. Cooked perfectly.

    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.

    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

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

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).

    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.
