Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "Texas Cattle Company is the place to go if your looking for steak. They feature a variety of tender, juicy and flavorful steaks with some nice side items. Also a few seafood items but steak is king here. The service is just as good as the beef."

  • "I had dinner here for my birthday- steak was awesome! The salad could use a little help- plain iceberg lettuce with green olives? Not much finesse there- but overall good food- dessert prices were very high- 10.95 for a piece of chocolate cake??"

  • "Great, great time. Food, as always, was totally amazing. Had the Filet. Best Shrimp Cocktail in Lakeland and you have to try the carrot cake."

  • "While the steaks are still top flight, I don't think the food, overall, is as good as it used to be. Now there are some kind of garlic cheese buns instead of the superb French bread they used to have. And we were given margarine and had to ask for butter. WTF? What if you don't like garlic? No options. My salad was wilted and not good. The steak dinners are $26.95 and you have to pay an ADDITIONAL $1.50 for a baked potato? Really? And to spend that kind of money and have to sit behind screaming, crying children is a bit much (go to MacDonald's, for crying out loud). Families should have a separate, distant location at such an expensive restaurant. I would only return on the day that they offer a filet special for $14.95."

  • "This place has really gone down, went for my "birthday dinner" Horrible food and customer service. my husband ordered srf n turf, food was cold, sent his baked potato back THREE times and the steak TWICE. When we got or bill, they charged us 18% gratuity because of the "birthday Meal" (I didn't even order steak, I ate fish) plus we were charged for a third meal. When we complained to the Manager she came over with liquor on her breathe and argued for 20 mins. before we got any results. The only thing we enjoyed was a slice of the red velvet cake we took home. that will be our last trip. we used to love this place. so sad!"

  • "We have dined at the restaurant several times since moving to Lakeland last March and have found the servers to be a bit like "Disney". The server we had this week was great. Natalia was down to earth and did not give us the "Disney" feel. The food and service was the best we have experienced at the Texas Cattle Company."

  • "Sadly disappointed with my dining experience. That's without saying the food was superb,its was the surrounding patrons which left us disgusted & embarrassed our out of town guest."

  • "Yes - we had a birthday and used the special offer. The reason we picked the Texas Cattle Company instead of another restaurant is because we knew we could depend on the excellent food and service we have had in the past, and we were not disappointed. The food was great; each order was cooked to perfection. The service was outstanding - both of the folks servicing our table went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed our special night by treating everyone at the table as if they were having the birthday. We had our two grandkids with us and both were asked what they wanted to order and called sir and ma'am. Overall I would rate the Texas Cattle Company as one of the top restaurants in Lakeland, and I don't eat red meat. Thank you all!"

  • "Always great food - My two favorites are Filet or Salmon. I never know which to order. This time I picked Filet - and it was perfect - Salmon is wonderful."

  • "Our salads arrived cold and tasty. The cheesy bread was hot and fresh. The drinks were yummy! Our steaks arrived perfectly cooked and seasoned. Had a wonderful coffee drink with whipped cream for dessert. Our server was very sweet and informative. Overall a great time with great service and great food."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "The food was excellent, as usual, but the service was unusually horrible this particular night. We received our salads literally moments before our steaks arrived which pretty much meant that we didn't get to eat our salad or risk eating a cold steak. The server was very apologetic but didn't even offer to take our steaks back and allow us to eat our salads. That's probably our fault for not asking for that, but a server should know the needs of her customers without them having to ask. All in all, a fairly poor experience."

  • "Have been coming here since it became Texas Cattle Co. Excellent steaks cooked to order. Used to serve plain white bread rolls. The cheese bread is a BIG improvement. Same salad which is fine with me."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "Our food was, as usual, excellent. However, the service was way less than excellent. We could not get drinks and service was just slow overall. But, the restaurant was not busy, so not sure why it took so long to get items we requested. We have been when it was 10 times busier with no issues at all."

  • "Texas Cattle Company in Lakeland is a great place to go for special occasions. Definitely not your everyday steakhouse. This is a little more costly. However, you receive generous portions and the food is delicious. You will find the steaks are better over the next couple of days. Something about the marinate they use. It is such a treat when we go."

  • "My daughter and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner, before going to The Theatre next door. Our server was wonderful, and very helpful with all of our questions from drink to food. She even was able to have leftovers held until after the performance, which bumped her tip up a couple notches. Many years ago we enjoyed every birthday with grandparents at this steakhouse. We have not been in so long, it was delightful to see they still do a free birthday meal. Special place, and good food to "boot"."

  • "We love the dining experience at Texas Cattle Company. The food was great. The service was great. We had just a few minor exceptions. Our reservation, made a week in advance, was set for 5pm when the restaurant first opens. The entire party made it to the location at 445pm. We waited outside in the heat. Once the restaurant opened we waited until 530pm, 30min past our reservation time, to be sat. It didn't make sense to us, since we were first in the restaurant and they told us the table was already set up for us. We were not offered an explanation. Our last complaint is the lack of bathroom space. For that size restaurant, there is no bathrooms to speak of."

  • "I have been to Cattleman's three times now. This was the first time I was disappointed with their filet's. Both my brother and I ordered it and it was very grizzly. The taste was good, but hard to chew. The waitress was nice and gave us one to take home. But it surprised me that for a steak place the filets would be like that."

  • "We love everything about you except - salads not like they used to be - need more olives or at least asked our preference (did not know I needed to ask). Desserts too big and need key lime pie."

  • "Took my hubby for his birthday. He is the ultimate steak lover so instead of getting the free birthday steak, he chose to get a bigger steak and pay the difference. We had the bleu cheese chips for an appetizer. They were very tasty. My husband's steak was done to perfection, and not overcooked (he ordered it rare). The strawberry shortcake for dessert was almost as large as Texas, and the flight of bourbon my husband had to go with it made the evening. We had two servers taking care of us, and they were exceptional. Jason suggested a very nice wine to go with my steak, and he was correct. The pairing was perfect. We will definitely be returning to dine there again."

  • "We like to sit in the back corner with a window view because it's nice and quiet for the most part, but for the past two trips I've noticed flies flying around. I had to shoo them off several times during my meal and noticed them on the window sill also, not very appetizing to say the least. Would like to keep returning for my special occasions, but this problem might keep me from doing so. With the money we pay on our visits you would assume things like this wouldn't be an issue. I love your food and the service I get and would hate to have to find another place. Thank you, Kevin"

  • "Barbara was an excellent server. Very attentive and gracious. The menu is "right on" steakhouse. We opted for an expansive appetizer (Chicken-fried bacon, shrimp, bacon wrapped scallops, etc.) the garlic rolls were a very nice touch. I decided to let my "devil may care" attitude guide me and order 2 entries, (2 lobster tails and the filet special). The salad was a little different. No real choice of dressing, just whether you would like blue cheese crumbles in the vinaigrette or not. My wife doesn't care for blue cheese, and I really don't care for green olives with iceberg lettuce. Oh well. Too "Olive Garden" for me Our entries arrived and unfortunately my filet (medium rare came medium and the lobster was undercooked). Oh well."

  • "Outstanding! From the minute we were seated up to dessert! Attentive staff, excellent food and had the perfect table for our party of 6. 4 of the 6 were first-timers and raved. ( we knew they would ). They are beef eaters but one ordered the Salmon and loved it too. All raved over the saled. A definite winner and we will be back!"

  • "I have been to Texas Cattle Company before and had a much better experience than what I had for my birthday this year! I did get a free steak and thank goodness because I didn't enjoy it at all. I had the filet and it was tough and cooked more than I asked. My salad was wet and soggy and seemed like it had already gone by. I used to think that the food was so worth the price, but I have totally changed my mind after this visit :("
