Texas Cattle Company - Lakeland Ratings and Reviews
Best steak in years! Great escargot and dang bang shrimp. Used open table to get a reservation and didn't have to wait longer than 5 mins. Great historical restaurant...opened in 70s. Best Steak house in Lakeland by far!!! It's a must for you meat eaters!!!
Honestly I think the place has been going downhill. The last 3 times I dined there I was not impressed. It is sad for me because at on time I loved going there. I am not sure if the quality of the meat has been down graded or just beef in general is mediocre. I won't be going back for a longtime.
Made reservations for 20 people months ago arrived before 5 pm and our tables were not ready or our special request for a small table or tray for our Christmas Gift Exchange was not done after I was told no problem. I received a call the day before from Texas Cattleman to confirm our reservation and informed them again of our requests. Was told no problem. I called several hours before our arrival time to confirm again our 20 count and table request. We were put in a small room cramped up against a wall couldn't get in or out of the back seating. Was told they booked another party of 15 in there. Had 4 quests with no place to sit was standing waiting for the manager and employees to figure out what was going on. I was very upset at Management for the way it was handled by them. The party of 15 never showed up so they split the table to 6 and 4 and sat other people in the room with our group. Did.not enjoy it all. Waiting to hear from management and will be contacting their corporate office regarding this.
It definitely took longer than expected. The gator appetizer has gotten much smaller, my chicken was cooked incorrectly, so by the time is was re-cooked, I had it just boxed to take home and I was very surprised the manager didn’t come to apologize or offer to give a discount, free dessert or anything. I guess the policy has changed as well and even though my husband ordered a steak and I the chicken, because it was cheapest they discounted the $16 chicken entree instead of $29 towards his steak like in years past.
The food was outstanding, the only complaint I had was I made a reservation about 2 weeks in advance and still had to wait 20 minutes past my reservation time for a table. The service was a little slow in my opinion but the restaurant was also packed. Our wait staff seemed friendly and attentive. Overall I would definitely go back and recommend to friends.
We have been there many times before and chose this time to go for my birthday. I am a Florida resident and that qualifies me for a free steak dinner. We were a party of 6.
One of the Ladies has many ice chips in her salad and she was told they chill the bowls. The waitress did not offer to get a new bowl or to understand why that might not be a problem in the salad. Also if you want the salad they only serve it with their salad dressing.
My husband only drinks non alcoholic beer and the waitress said they choose not to have it on hand. But when we talked to the Manager he said this was not true and they did not order it.
The free steak Dinner I received was a $29 value. I asked the waitress if I could have the smaller steak but she said no. When the bill came they gave me a $20 credit, and no where did I see anything about this,but I still had to pay $9. They take your drivers license to prove you are a Florida resident and at the end of the meal you can have your drivers license back. Why do they have to keep it all that time? I asked the waitress she said they have to “scan” it.
One last thing if it is your birthday when the bill comes they charge everyone in the party 18%. I guess this is trying to make up for the $20 + my $9 for the $29 value steak that is free.
Buy the way we have been there many times and have liked it but this time celebrating a birthday was horrible and very unfriendly.
I will go to this place again, I was very dissatisfied. I had a reservation and I still waited they forgot us , my husband had to go ask them what was the hole up. Then we were seated then they kept walking by us we finally got some service but we got our appetizer before our drinks. We had water and sweet tea. I ask to speak to the manager he took for ever to come so after he came we just left. We went to Red Lobster were their service was exceptional. And also my husband seat was broken and they wouldn't move us but changed another couple that had just gotten there. I will never never go back. They suck! I use to like this place not anymore.
Although I drove over 40 miles and passed a lot of great restaurants on the way, I decided to give them a shot, even after reading the reviews and friends advising not to dine there. Still, I gave them the benefit of the doubt. Once we got seated, they would not honor the "birthday meal" because it was the day after my birthday (had a very sick child at home on my birthday) ; I had full intentions of going on my birthday. The waitress didn't even offer to go ask the manager, which really made me mad. She could have at least made an effort. The only reason we didn't leave is because my mom wanted to stay. I mean, darn, I waited all year just to go here and they didn't think well enough of me choosing to eat at their restaurant?
I ordered the filet mignon and it was okay, but with the small scoop of mashed potates next to it, it made it look like a child's entree.
I would not recommend the Lakeland location at all! I have dined at the St. Pete location on several occasions and it was always great. They even made an exception for my mom a few days before her birthday as we were going on a cruise for her actual birth date. Little things like that can mean a lot.
This was not a good experience at all.
Order was wrong, kept taking our food to another table. There were only 3 in our party, so I cannot figure out why it was so difficult, and they were not busy. Was lied to by either the mgr. or server. Really not sure which one.
This place has really gone downhill and will think twice before i go back
The only disappointment was I made a reservation at least a month in advance, requesting a table for recent abdominal surgery. When we checked in, the hostess said she could not see note for table, however it was plainly on my confirmation on phone. I chose to not argue in front of our guests. They ended up buying your holiday special $100. I should have called also to confirm table.
We were there to celebrate a birthday. The server told us about the birthday special steak and we were all surprised at the value being offered. However, when the check was being prepared she said she needed to see the driver's license of the BD person to verify that it was that day! She did not mention this requirement when the food selection was made. If they are going to tell you about the BD special the caveat that it must be the EXACT day of the BD should have been mentioned.
I brought my sister to TCC for dinner on her last night in town. EVERYTHING was fabulous-service was exceptional, food was outstanding, ambiance was great. We couldn’t have been happier and I’m sure it will become our ritual to have dinner here whenever she’s in town! Can’t wait to go back!
The service was great, a very knowledgeable server. We had a nice treat; a mini-cup of delicious baked potato soup to sample as first time diners. Everything was explained to us in detail. Food was served promptly but not on top of the previous course. Management also checked in on us. It was a wonderful evening; husband/wife date night!
Went with friends. Ordered the 32 oz ribeye for 2 for both couples.Salad and bread served at same time. Asked if wanted more. Ribeyes were ordered rare and medium well. Both came out at the same time and were cooked correctly. was the 1st time for both couples and decided to go back again.
Our friends wanted a good steak, we immediately decided Texas cattle co. And after waiting almost 2 hours for food (restaurant was not busy), the orders were wrong, food was cold and our waitress was rude. Horrible experience. We will not be back.
We moved about an hour from Lakeland, so we come here a couple times a year minimum. You can't beat the value for a quality aged steak. If you like margaritas, the blue rose of texas is a great one, giant sized and the best "adult" drink value too. Excellent overall, give it a try!
Went for a birthday dinner. Husband decided to go for the 5lb steak challenge but decided to just get the steak and take home what he couldn’t eat. The 5lb steak was over cooked. He asked for medium but got well done. My birthday steak was perfect as was my sons lobster. You have to try the blueberry lemonade. Hand squeezed lemons and blended whole blueberries. It was heavenly. We even brought our puppy who enjoyed the patio. The server Ashley was wonderful and attentive. The manager worked to make us happy about the steak being over cooked. We left satisfied, full, and happy. It was a great experience and I recommend them. We will be back to try other meal options.
