Diner Reviews
  • "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 husband and kids came over for dinner and it was very good. I loved everything about my experience except for the fact they only have one choice for the salad dressing."

  • "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."

  • "Had reservations. No wait. Very good server. Loved the sharing options. Steak was perfect. Mashed potatoes had some big chunks but still good. Very nice evening."

  • "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."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "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 :("

  • "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."

  • "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
  • "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!"

  • "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
  • "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!!!"

  • "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
  • "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."
    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."

  • "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."

    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."

  • "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."
