    Our group grew to 9 with two children so we had to move our reservation to 9:15. We would come here often when we lived in the area and thought it would be great to return on our vacation weekend to see family. Yes, it does take some time here to prepare your food properly. Sadly, we had some bumps with our order. About 1:25 into our evening after seating our order started to trickle in. A few plates were mis-delivered, a few were under cooked and unfortunately we were missing parts of the order. When that was noticed items that should taken longer was out in minutes and, yes, undercooked. We did have a few conversations with management and were credited some of the bill. I think we'll be back, just in a much smaller group.

    For the last 10+ years we have loyally celebrated every family and friend birthday at the St Petersburg Texas Cattle Company because of their birthday promotion. This year was not as good as the past. The staff is very friendly but my meal was not as requested - medium is not rare. Sent it back and still not cooked properly but as others at the table were eating I stayed silent and ate my lobster then the undercooked steak. Lobster tail was too dry. Salad lacked olives. Probably will begin a new birthday tradition at another restaurant.

    I've been a customer of Texas Cattle Co for about 3 years with no complaints. That changed this past August 25th. In previous years I always ordered their tasty ribeye/t-bone but this year I decided to try medium 8oz filet. When the food came, I noticed right away that the filet was dry and very dark. Took one bite of the overcooked filet and could only taste the intense smoke flavor which was then replaced by a very under-cooked filet, and finally another over-smoked dry filet that I couldn't eat. I was offered a glass of wine but was charged for the cold sides that I couldn't enjoy. Paid over $160 for an embarrassing dinner that I was so looking forward to enjoy with out-of-town friends. Their response? Well, your steak was free anyways.

    Very dark inside, had Texas theme, Christopher was server, Excellent. My husband ordered the filet he was pleased, he did not like the taste of the lobster, but it was huge, I ordered the Sirloin steak, flavor was very good but I had to fight to cut it, I ordered it medium, maybe I should of gotten it medium well. I had better steaks not impressed. bottomless house salad, very good, came in a bowl instead of a plate which was easier to eat out of. Cheesy bread was very good. Pricing was beyond fair for a steak house. Service from the time we walked in was great, Very clean place. Would go back but I would order the filet instead.

    I'm a steak lover and a bit jaded when it comes to my expectations, so I have to admit that I went in expecting an average meal. It was so far above my expectations, it is hard to put it into words. Summary: Go. Order the large filet, medium rare. Throw rocks at 97% of all the steakhouses you've eaten in. Outstanding!

    Upon arrival we were immediately sat, our server asked for our drinks and if we were celebrating any event (birthday, anniversary, etc.) We mentioned we were not but were looking forward to a relaxing date night. She understood and did not rush us with orders or the check. Unfortunately, as more guest started to arrive and be seated the room became very warm. On the way to the facilities, I mentioned it to management and they adjusted the thermostat however it was already warm and would take a while to cool off so we asked for the check and departed. All in all it was a pleasant date night, just a little warm at the end.

    We have celebrated our birthday's at Texas Cattle Co. For over 20 years. The food was still very good. But, the service was very poor. I don't mind paying 18% gratuity, but I still should receive good service. The changes with the birthday dinner, were not very customer friendly. thank-you!

    We went to Texas Cattle Company for my husband's birthday. His dinner was free with his driver's license ! The steaks were cooked to perfection. The salad was great and all you can eat. But that bread! Their bread is a cheesy garlic bread with a crispy crust and soft warm center. Absolutely the best ever! Excellent service and a nice wine list. A great steakhouse and great value!

    We were a bit off taken with the waiting area. It reminded us of an old haunted house you'd see in a movie. The ambiance inside was much more comfortable. I expected exceptional service, given the prices we were paying. That's not what we got. Our waiter was very busy, took 10 min. to greet our table, then, another long wait for our drinks to arrive. It was our first time there, so i had a few questions that i had to hurrily ask one at a time, while my server quickly swung by our table, before she ran off not to be seen again for another 10-20 minutes. About half way through our meal we suddenly had a fantastic server who was on top of taking care of our table.

    We dined at Texas CC for my husband's birthday and the free birthday steak offer. It has now been downgraded to a Strip Steak instead of the T-Bone they used to offer. In the past you were able to upgrade and pay the difference for the Porterhouse. You can no longer upgrade to the Porterhouse which was rather disappointing. Not sure I understand their logic in that since you pay the difference. The steaks were cooked to order but tasted very salty. The wine list was also a disappointment. Not as many choices as before. The one gem of the evening was our waitress. She was very helpful, friendly and made our visit a pleasure in spite of the disappointments mentioned above.

    Our waitress was wonderful and checked with us during dinner. When we received the bill we noticed the "free" birthday steak was $34.50 and not $26.95 like we were told. We were given a choice of 4 different steaks to choose from and we chose the Rib eye steak. We were not told about the upcharge in any way for the steak. The waitress made it sound like we have a choice of 4 different steaks at the same price. The food and service was great, we will be going back again.

    The menu has changed from when we were in town last year. It seems smaller, lacks the cow girl which was the favorite of the women, and is definitely pricier. The steaks were excellent however. The bread was wonderful, the salads seemed wilted and the potato wedges were burnt on the bottom. Our server was excellent. Our party of six included a teen and a pre-teen and she did a good job of keeping everyone's drinks filled. The kids ordered cheeseburgers but didn't like the wedges at all. Others at the complex we're staying at mentioned that they missed the steak sharing option listed in the previous menu. Four people ordered steaks and the bill with tax and 20% tip was around 175.00.

    I was surprised to find the best french onion soup I have had. There is a special flavor added that is fantastic. The salad with house dressing was great, just to find out it is bottomless. Our filet was cooked perfect at medium rare. The waitress was extremely helpful and friendly especially as this was our first visit. We will definitely return.

    We had a family get together dinner at this restaurant. Most of the family members wanted steak so we decided to go to Texas Cattle Company. We had not been here in many years. The food was very good! The proportions were more than adequate. Our waitress was great! My son had 5 refills of tea, our waitress was so accommodating. I would definitely go back to this restaurant.

    This was once a place I would tell everyone about now I won't bother I will share the fact that the prices are outlandish and not comparable to any other steak house and the serving amount it ridiculous on the gator for what you are charging for it as is the escargot , service it was sad we had a waiter who was telling us how he had been there 7 years, hmm he must be getting tired of his duties or better yet he knows it doesn't matter how he performs his duties he still gets a ridiculous 18% from me any way and there were only two in my party. when I asked for a couple more pieces of garlic bread for my escargot they arrived during my second order and it was a basket full and I was charged $5.00 and wasn't told about it. It was on my bill

    I went there because I heard of their Birthday promotion for free steak. When mentioned by the waitress, She stated I had 3 options, the most expensive being 34.50. I was told if I purchased an entree of equal or greater value the other was free. So of course I went with the most expensive. The food was okay, too priceY. The waitress was nice, but could've been better. When I received the bill, I was only discounted 26.95 from bday special. When mentioned to waitress she brought manager over and he stated rudely that's the promo and he couldn't do anything he apologized for the miscommunication. Stated it was specified for 26.95 and couldn't be fixed. After going back and forth and proving it wasn't specified, we got the dessert removed

    Texas Cattle Company in St. Petersburg is not in the same league as Bern's Steakhouse...but who is? Perhaps it's not a fair comparison. If the price of the meals at TCC was 10% - 15% cheaper, I'd be more enthusiastic. The food is not bad, but the ambiance of the restaurant is lacking. And, what's up with the subdued lighting? It was too dark. At least, allow the patrons some control over the lighting at each individual table. I would recommend TCC for birthday's because of the free steak offer. Otherwise, it's a bit overpriced.
