    We had two servers. One of them was great, the other one should have stayed at home. It really stinks because i'm sure they share tips, and we wished we could just give it all to the one who deserved it. NOT the one who acted like we were bothering her by being at her job.

    My wife picked Texas Cattle Comany for one of our rare Date nights. To be honest we really cannot afford to eat out. She saved as she knew I love a good steak. We both had the Trail boss Rib eye and it did not disapoint. It was DELICIOUS as well as the salad, mashed potatoes and bread. We split a blue rose of Texas drink. My wife generally does not drink but I talked her into it. We both enjoyed it. We kept looking at the wonderful looking dessert's every time the tray passed us. We really thought we would split a seven layer carrot cake. But we both decided to not save room for dessert and just enjoy our steaks. We both walked out very relaxed and very full. Already talking about when we may be able to return. Our waitress was also great. I am so sorry I cannot remember her name as I would have liked to tell her bosses about her great job. She was very friendly and very knowledable. We ordered on her reccomendations and we were very glad we did.

    I took my boufriend for his birthday. The food was delicious but the service was terrible. Our waitress took several minutes before she greeted us. When she finally did, we got our drinks and ordered an appetizer. The appetizer came and was great. Then we ordered our meals. When she brought our salads, the waitress literally threw them at us as she ran by our table. When our meals came, it took forever to get a refill. When we were finally done, we asked for a slice of cake to go and our check. We got our check and then our waitress disappeared for about 30 minutes! She finally came and cashed us out with barely a thank you. I was very upset that I had to pay the 18% gratuity added to our check for such terrible service. We won't be back.

    We just went to Texas Cattle for the first time. Cute on the inside. Minimal wine menu. Appetizer tasted like a re-fried frozen meal. Steaks were ok, it was nothing I would order again. And in the end I felt it was way too expensive considering the food and even the birthday steak. Not a good first impression.

    Menu rigid / Atmosphere stuffy - Responsible for lack of crowds? If I owned this restaurant: Dining is expensive, I would add more affordable appetizers & smaller portions to draw younger crowd. People don't always want huge portions. Despite changes, I don't want salad or bread, so no value for me with no choice to omit them. Great idea adding craft beer! Stock more craft bottles. Atmosphere too oppressive, restaurant decor outdated (like your patrons) too stuffy, & too dark. Lighten up atmosphere - clear out clutter, change to lesser cowboy theme. Remove meat-exhibit case. These days, who wants to be confronted with raw animal meat or think about cows? I love TCC & want it to be successful, still the best steaks in St Pete!

    Our party was seated immediately. The staff was extremely friendly. I enjoyed the food and the decor. The service was great...BUT it is loud. It's difficult to carry on a conversation at times. The waiter was good, never intrusive but once he realized there wasn't going to be a big bar bill, his attention was elsewhere. No worries there. We had a great time, food was good, all's well that ends well.

    Texas Cattle Company is such a wonderful place to go if you enjoy scrumptious viddles & attentive service. Don't be in a hurry or you won't find the pleasure of being in their "company". We live too far away to be able to go often, but we surely do look forward to the times we can go. Texas Cattle is one of the best restaurants we have ever eaten at. You won't know what pleasure to the palate you have missed until you dine there and discover the pleasure yourself.....don't delay, go soon!

    everything here was great... the drinks, food, and service! only complaint I have is that a special on the menu sounded really good to me and they said I couldn't order a special because my boyfriend was getting the free birthday steak... I even offered to pay the difference but they said I wasn't allowed. Like I said everything else was great, just kind of bummed I couldn't order what I wanted even when I offered to pay the difference.

    The steak was great, the service was terrible. The server we had was one of the worst I've experienced. I use to work in the hospitality field as a manager for 15 years and I would never employee a serve like this. The manager was no where to be found to correct the laundry list of issues we were experiencing. The bathroom was flooded and dirty and seemed that no one cares. I will be going to another steakhouse in the future. Let's face it there are thousands of other places to go for a good steak. Great food can not make up for terrible management and service!!

    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.

    My wife and I went in for the first time last Friday. First impression was that it was very dark and the decor is extremely outdated. The menu has a decent selection. Pretty much what you'd expect at a steakhouse. The wine list is simple but quite adequate.The beer list is the same. Both have quality selections. The shrimp cocktail was a bit overcooked and tough and the presentation was sloppy. My wife and I both ordered the filet med rare. I also added blue cheese, mushrooms and asparagus. It was all prepared very well. We were very happy with the entrées and the peanut butter cheeskake :) The service was also pretty spot on. Overall, decent food, good service, a bit overpriced and very, very, very outdated atmosphere.

    We have gone to this restaurant for over 20 years usually to celebrate anniversaries and birthdays. We still agree their steaks are the best! However we were disappointed to learn we had to pay 18% gratuity if celebrating a birthday. Before it was only for parties of 6 or more. So much for the "free" steak on your birthday. How absurd! It wasn't like we we getting top notch service either. Sorry to say we probably won't be going back again if they keep this practice in place.

    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.
