    I know it shouldn't be too much to ask - for a steakhouse to have good steks & cook them properly - but I've fount that many times that just isn't the case. Here though, they KNOW WHAT THEY'RE DOING, and they do it well. Add in a comfortable setting and friendly staff and you have a great restaurant. We will be back again !

    We ordered the porterhouse and split. The service and food was on point! We ordered several sides and I would recommend the sautéed mushrooms and steak fries. We also had their escargot which I thought was fabulous and highly recommend as an appetizer. What a great night.

    The food was good, no argument there. Once we were seated it took at least 15 minutes for the server to approach our table and take our drink orders and then overall the service was just extremely slow throughout the rest of our dinner. Not to mention we had to ask for break, steak knives etc, Hopefully next time we will get a better waiter.

    We were a party of 6, I had the filet beef tips cooked perfect and delicious, two people had the lobster and filet, which was great, two others had the cowboy steak cooked perfect and huge, the last person had the 8oz filet which was huge. With that said the meat portions are very large but at the same time flavorful. The staff from the time you walk in are very attentive and on top of their game.

    This use to be our favorite "go to" dining spot. We live in a snowbird community in central FL and we have had many Birthday celebrations at Texas Cattle Company. Usually a group of 8-10 of us (no one is a FL resident) and we have never had a problem taking advantage of the Birthday special with proof it was the persons birthday, always with an out of state drivers license. Monday (11/10) was my wife's B-day.We were asked if we were celebrating anything, told the waitress that yes we had a B-day and showed her KY drivers license. Told it must be a FL license. Explained that in Apr we celebrated my B-day with no problems. Bottom line, lg group no problem. 2, forget it. My KY money spends, but out of state residents not welcome.

    Dined on 11/8/2014
    We were very disappointed with the food. I had a t-bone, so we had already taken the bone off. Cut into it and it was very rare. So, we sent it back to get cooked through some more. They lost the steak in the kitchen and it remained on the stove until it was burnt. So, they put a new steak on. It didn't get back to me until my entire party had finished eating. It only took 40 minutes to get to me, after our dinner arrived. The manager even came over to apologize, but it was like he was blaming it on us for taking the bone off. She didn't fill up our waters for a long time. A1 bottle was empty, so we asked for a new one and it was empty, too. No money was taken off of our bill. It was so disappointing and we won't be back.

    Prices have gone up and quality has gone down. Used to be one of our favorites but I doubt if we'll be back anytime soon. Waiter was great at first but started to wait on a large party and dropped us. Someone from the kitchen finally delivered our food. we were seated right away but it seems their business has fallen off. They used to be packed on Friday nights.

    Thought it was odd that we were seated at the back of the restaurant, totally alone. We walked by so many open tables. We made an inquiry, but no change was made. The food was good; lobster tails were tender, moist and tasty. The twin bacon-wrapped fillets were too bacon-flavored: so much so we had to remove it. The fillet tasted good. The mashed redskins were delicious, while the texas fries were probably left too long in the fryer. Spouse ate them anyway. The insides of the almost-chocolate colored fries were good. (They looked burnt to me.) Service was attentive; we had a trainee that was trying very hard to please us. The team did fine, service wise. Over all, a good experience. We'd still go back, but not frequent.

    Food tasty but was disappointed in the manner the steaks are being cut (filet part of Texas Cow Girl was sliced thin and the steak section was thick, causing the filet to be overcooked). We had an exceptional waitress, good service, great attitude, a plus to your restaurant.

    An emailed request to have some garlic blue cheese potato chips brought to our table as soon as possible after we were seated was answered with the chips upon seating! We brought friends with us who had not been to TCC before. They loved it and we had a great evening. My husband and the other gentleman both ordered rib eyes but cooked to different temperatures. The two plates were switched inadvertently. When our server found out she took them both back and brought back two freshly cooked ones. The manager checked later to make sure we were all happy. Two cuts of rib eye are on the menu now. The cattle baron is the one to order. The smaller cut is thin and can be tough. HIGHLY recommend the cattle baron rib eye and TCC!

    I made this reservation for my fiance's birthday (free birthday meal and a happy birthday chorus on your birthday). Not only did I provide detailed notes about his birthday in the Open Table reservation but also mentioned it to the waitress when we arrived. Three others were sang happy birthday to but never him. I also waited a half hour just for a drink and had to ask 2 waiters if I could please get my drink. Once the bill came I reminded them he was entitled to a free meal on his birthday and that I hadmade the first waitress aware when we sat down and also noted on my online reservation. There was no last minute Happy Birthday chorus ever came just a corrected check.....not even revised to full bday discount value.

    Usually you are safe when you order a filet mignon at a steak restaurant, not this one. My friend and I both ordered the filet mignon and both were bad. What is worse. The potato wedges were also bad. The Charcoal taste was over whelming. The only good thing about the whole experience is the wine bottle was half price.

    I normally frequent The Palm, Eddie V's, Flemings, The Capital Grille and always have a great steak. I tried the Ribeye steak at the Texas Cattle Company and it was loaded with fat and gristle. I am very familiar with aged steaks and understand that the Ribeye has lots of marbling, however it just simply was not good. Our server was absolutely awesome and we never had to ask for anything. She was knowledgable, recommended appetizers as well as wine and dessert and our drinks were never empty. For upscale prices the staff was very average dressed and when I left the manager was outside near the dumpster smoking. Not a great look and not what I would expect when the prices are inline with other upscale venues.

    Outstanding food & service. We were seated within 10 minutes of our reservation time (7:00 on a Friday!) and waiter was excellent. The size of the steaks was way more than one of us could eat but they had no problem with us splitting it, but limited all-you-can-eat salad to one person. Ordered 2 sides instead because they were very reasonably priced. Juiciest ribeye steak I've ever eaten. Fried green tomatoes & mushrooms were tasty & a generous portion. Indulged in the pumpkin bread pudding with vanilla ice cream which was awesome. Can't wait to get back to Lakeland to eat there again.

    First off apparently class and manners go out the window for customers. I really didn't appreciate the table across from us talking so loud that everybody in the area could here them. Also, I waited 10 minutes to get my bill. My wife ordered a bourbon rita, she had one sip from it and didn't like it so we returned it, and of course I got charged for it. I would have said something to our waitress but I didn't feel like waiting another 10 minutes for our bill. For the amount of money I paid I will go somewhere else in the future. If I want to enjoy a nice steak in a loud atmosphere with poor service your my choice.

We had an early reservation 5:30 it was nice and quiet, we were able to hear each other. The server we had was great she was engaging and attentive. I would have left more tip than was pre added.

    This restaurant isn't bad at all. Comparing it to most restaurants, the food and atmosphere is better, but not that much better. It has 4/5 star prices and a low end 4 or high end 3 star quality. The filet is a bit bland, but the strip steak was fairly good. Overall, I don't dislike this establishment, but it certainly doesn't live up to its prices.

    I have been coming to The Texas Cattle Company for years. The quality of each visit has really varied depending on the server that took care of us. This visit we were sat in the cramped aisle placed right beside a service counter, it was so dark we had to use our cell phones to see the menu. Our server was obviously new and not very sure of herself and not attentive to our needs. Our party of 4 went through the appetizers, salad and bread with only 2 sets of forks... once again having to remind her for the 4th or 5th time once our steaks were served. My steak was amazing. Boyfriend's steak was the fattiest t-bone i have ever seen. I'm sure we will be back, but will request an experienced server and better table for sure!

    We took our son and his friend to dinner and while the food was good, I thought the portions were a little light for the price. The last 2X we have been there the Texas Fries tasted like they were old baking potatoes recooked. The only other option was mashed potatoes without an upcharge and I think for the price you should have been able to pick any item on the menu. The light portions you are given are not enough to warrant an upcharge. The service as usual was excellent, but I know we would eat at this establish more except for these items.

    Although I was disappointed to learn that the Birthday Special is now limited to the 8-ounce filet or the New York Strip, the meal was better than ever. In previous years, I faithfully ordered the filet and it was usually undercooked the first time, sometimes even the second time. Last year, I ordered a lobster tail instead. This year, I returned to the filet. It was cooked perfectly the first time. We also enjoyed a huge appetizer of shrimp, escargot and fried mushrooms, most of which we took home. We also had delicious strawberry daiquiris and an apple-blueberry cobbler. This occasion was for my mom's birthday. We already have reservations for my birthday next week and are anticipating another great meal.
