Diner Reviews
  • "We went out the 4 of us to Texas Cattlemen and 3 of us had good food one of us had bad steak and bad potatoes. I wish that one person would have returned the food. He did tell the waitress that his plate was not very good. Too much gristle in the mat and the potatoes steak potatoes were dry way overdone. The waitress just pick up the plates and left. My husband and I had gone there 5 to 6 times before and had good food so we decided to bring 2 more people and that was a mistake for one of us. We may try again . we'll see. Irene"

  • "We reserved a table online for 7 pm, arrived at 6:50 and were seated almost immediately. Allison was our server. We explained that we had had a couple of less than stellar experiences recently and she promised to make this one excellent. She succeeded by being attentive, observant--keeping our drinks filled, accurate and fun. This is what we have come to expect from TCC after almost 30 years of birthday celebrations and road trips. We currently live in Sebring but are from Pinellas County. It has been our custom to save enough dinner to make our coworkers crazy at lunch the next day and we have introduced countless friends, coworkers, neighbors and family to TCC over the years. Thank you for the good times."

  • "We had amazing lightly smoky steaks, perfectly done, as always! The shrimp and scallop scampi was perfectly seasoned and wonderfully fresh! We enjoyed several of the recommendations by the waitress, but in cases where we wanted certain things, she actually insisted we order something else... She was right about her beer selection for my hubby being tasty, but he really wanted to try a different new beer. My MIL asked for a classic martini and had to say no three times to fruity drinks after explicitly saying she did not want anything fruity. We had to insist right back to get what we came for. It seemed she was more interested in sharing her extensive knowledge than in being an accommodating listener. Slightly exhausting!"

  • "We did not have to wait long with the reservations, the food was very good. We love the salad dressing, I mean really love it! The steak was cooked perfectly, we love medium rare and it was just right. It was my birthday and they did not offer dessert I was a little disappointed, I would have loved to share a dessert with my husband."

  • "This was fun for a family meeting place. Lots on the menu for everyone to chose from. Our waiter Collin was very energetic and kept pace with our table of 8. We enjoyed ourselves, but more than likely won't be back, we were just passing through the area while college visiting."

  • "This restaurant opened in 1973 and hasn't changed since then. There was a distinct musty odor that permeated the whole place. My husband ordered a flight of bourbon, and the server didn't know which bourbons were included. We didn't dare ask about the differences between them because we knew he couldn't correctly answer. The food was okay, but for the price, I expected better. We will not be returning."

  • "We took two other couples out as a 'thank you' for some help they gave us and we were a little nervous because we had never been here before, but we were not disappointed at all. Our friends enjoyed the food and the service. The waitress was especially fun. The one person who ordered dessert had enough to share with everyone! We will be back."

  • "Our little family of six gathered at Texas Cattle Co last month for a birthday dinner. Food was very good (steaks could have been cooked a little less -- medium rares were more like medium plus) Very accommodating of a 95 year old member of our family and that was greatly appreciated. Our big booth was great so we could talk without lots of extraneous noise from other diners. That was great!!!"

  • "We have gone to the Texas Cattle Company four or five times always leaving with the same opinions. 1. The atmosphere is fun but we have always left feeling that we ate in confusion. 2. Our steaks were too well done even after ordering them one step below what we normally ask for. 3. The seating tends to be be crowded so that we had to wait to leave until the table across from us was served. 4. I know that in nice restaurants many items are alla carte but Texas Cattle Company isn't that nice. I object to paying extra for a baked potato. 5. The salad was overloaded with olives and dressing so that it was not crisp. 6. Could not order a vegetable in place of potatoes. 7. Not a good value compared to comperable restaurants."

  • "I've been coming to Texas Cattle Company all my life & I am 27. This restaurant has never let me down. I enjoy the free steak dinner for birthday. I believe this only apply s to Florida residents. My current visit was the best by far from service to great tasting food at very reasonable prices. Our server did forget to place our steak order in, thus causing us to wait another 20 minuets or so. He apologize for the inconvenience & I accepted it because it was busy that night. We did not receive anything free or discount for the mistake. This was fine because the food was still outstanding. I suggest this place for a nice romantic dinner, birthday celebration, or just a nice evening out for a steak dinner. Come try it out for yourself."

  • "This place has a very "Polk County" ambiance. Many customers in cowboy hats and ball caps or wearing shorts and flip flops. But tat is ok. The steaks are excellent as is the service."

  • "This restaurant was completely filled for St. Valentine's Day dinner, and yet they managed to serve excellent quality food, not just your holiday run of the mill dinners. If you haven't dined here, try it. You will not regret it. Excellent service too! They even gave each woman a rose. Thank you."

  • "This is the 3rd time in a row that we have had a horrible dining experience. The main reason for this is the poor food quality. We have had everything from fatty overcooked steaks, burnt sirloins and overcooked fish to cold side items (potatoes, vegetables). The only thing I can say was great is the salad. We have been to several of the other restaurants in the chain and this by far is the worst."

  • "WE USE TO ENJOY OUR EXPERIENCES AT TEXAS CATTLE COMPANY. AFTER OUR LAST VISIT.WELL IT MIGHT BE THAT..OUR LAST VISIT. WE LOOKED FORWARD TO THIS OUTTING FOR MONTHS, BUT IT WAS TRULY RUINED. THE SERVER WAS SWEET AND REALLY TRIED TO ACCOMMODATE.THE MANAGER ON THE OTHER HAND WAS AWFUL AND DID NOTHING TO HELP FIX THE COMPLAINTS. SHE WAS UNBELIEVABLE. THE STEAKS WERE AWFUL AND THE DINNER THAT I BROUGHT HOME, WELL I SHOULD NOT HAVE BOTHERED BRINGING IT HOME IN THE BAG. IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION, BUT IT WAS THE WORST MEAL I HAVE EVER RECEIVED FROM TEXAS CATTLE CO. AND IF I WERE TO BE TOTALLY HONEST THE WORST MEAL I HAVE EVER HAD WHILE EATTING OUT. THE MANAGER KNEW SHE HAD NOT DONE ANYTHING TO CORRECT THE ISSUES AND DID NOT CARE!"

  • "We had not been to this restaurant in a little while and were disappointed to see a new menu with a much more limited menu than what they had before. The wine list has drastically changed, and not for the better. The steak was still very tasty, but I would say that the change in menu was not an improvement on what they had before."

  • "The server was attentive, the salad was just okay, did not seem real fresh. Even though they offer unlimited salad, you usually do not want more than then one bowl. The rolls were okay...did not taste warm and right out of the oven. I had blackened grouper which I thought was a little too blackened. The men had meat and thoroughly enjoyed their steaks!!"

  • "The staff were very friendly and we were very happy with the attention to detail. The meal was good but our dessert is where they dropped the ball. We ordered the Strawberry cobbler and it was cold. A cobbler should be warm. We would probably go back."

  • "We wanted to treat our friends to a night out. We had a wonderful time at the Texas Cattle Company - Lakeland. The atmosphere was great with different celebrations going on around us. Our server Kortlyn was amazing and took care of us with a lovely smile on her face and she told us several jokes as well. We couldn't believe how great the food was. The filet mignon dinners were the best we had ever eaten!! We'll be back!"

  • "We love coming here, food is excellent but service is spotty at best. Last visit, even though I had a reservation I had to wait 40 minutes for a table. The time before, I sent my steak back to be re-fired and it took nearly an hour to return. Another time, I told the server that I would like dessert, and he just dropped off the check and walked away. If the food wasn't so good, I'd look for other options."

  • "We made reservations for a birthday dinner. We were seated fairly quick. We ordered or drinks and then the wait. The salads finely came. When all the food was served and we walked out the door it was 2 hrs. and 15 minutes later. I love the restaurant but this time was a bit over the top. They calmed the kitchen had crashed and apologized for the wait. They had one large party in the back with moderate amount of customers in the restaurant."

  • "The greatest impediment to our having an enjoyable dining experience proved to be the unethical way in which the gratuity of $30 was added to our bill. We purchased desserts and appetizers for just 4 people. We were never informed that the gratuity would be added to the pre-discounted price. There was essentially no birthday discount. Your server Colin is highly amicable and accommodating."

  • "Texas Cattle Company has the best steak I have ever had. Their filet is so tender and flavorful. Their all you can eat salad is so delicious. This restaurant is so good that my family drives 100 miles round trip, just to eat there. It is worth every mile we drive for the excellent meal we receive."

  • "Waiter was creepy friendly. Salad was soggy. Steaks over cooked. Reserved table backed up to server station. Wine ordered not available and dismissed. With a tab of $200 for two adults and three kids and cheap wine was unacceptable. Originally planning to dine at Charley's in Tampa, we were extremely disappointed since we normally would dine at Charley's but since we were with children thought it would be a close second.....sadly mistaken. Texas cattle in Lakeland was awful for the amount we paid. Could've had a better steak at Chili's for an eight of a price and better food."

  • "we asked for our steak to be medium and it was rare and served cold as if it had been sitting for awhile. The best part was the salad and potatoes."
