We started with the Gator Tail appetizer... came out cold and not crispy. Our steak had NO flavor. 3 of our 5 steaks were not cooked to order. Broccoli was way over cooked. The only thing saving this experience was our attentive waiter.

Jessica waitress terrible. At a restaurant of this caliber you shouldn’t have to ask for refills on drinks. Twice during meal. Then received watered down iced tea .noted on open table reservation graduation. Graduate never recognized. You only graduate once from high school. Also noticed other tables under Jessica had issues either food, drink or other. Temperature of husbands steak not hot nor broccoli or baked pot. Also, husband ordered 12 oz steak and received 8 oz cooked incorrectly. Should have been med rare. One of the managers had it cooked correctly but oz incorrect. Bill reflected 12 oz and server had to get corrected.
Heard waitress ask another table any special occasion but not to us.

Looks like it was not a good night for several tables. Noticed managers visiting several tables. Not good.

Overall the experience was great. My server Brad was very attentive.

However, I did see a member of the wait staff (not Brad) do something very unhygienic and disturbing. One of the staff members (a young woman) was using the bottom of a pitcher to break up the ice that was in the ice vat used to put in drinks. The pitcher was on a surface of the counter and could have contaminated the drinking water, soft drinks, and etc. Needless to say, I didn't order any more drinks with ice in it. Pretty gross and disgusting.

Please invest in a few ice scoops and picks for the staff to use.

Every few years I eat here and am then reminded why that would be. They continue to disappoint. Steaks are great but the sides and salad have always been and continue to be, less than ideal.

The food was amazing. My husband said it was the best steak he ever had. I had the pork chops and they were delicious. The kids burgers were huge. For our first time visiting, I’d say the meal was excellent. The only issue we had was with my husbands bday meal. He didn’t have his drivers license (he lost it) but had a valid Florida ID. They wouldn’t honor the birthday discount and it was definitely a bummer. The waitress was very sweet and apologetic. Offered to have a manager speak with us but I was kind of embarrassed and didn’t want my husbands day to be ruined.

Our waiter was awful he forgot to bring me a drink and had to ask 3 times. Our steaks were overcooked manager came out and was rude about it. Waited an additional 30mins for steaks to come back out again. Never was offered a apology or anything about our bad experience. Very dissatisfied with everything especially when we took our mom there for mother's day.

I have dined at this restaurant since 1984 and I have bragged about their great steaks and food for a long time. I have discovered that there are other items on the menu that are just as great, and have fallen in love with the pork chops and heard great reviews on the salmon.

Unfortunately this was the second time that we have been to Texas Cattle Co in the past year and the steaks have significantly gone down hill. This used to be our very favorite Lakeland steak house but the steaks are grisly and never done to our request. Three people at our table ordered Pittsburg style- char on the outside and medium rare inside. The steaks were barely a RARE and little char if any on the outside. My broccoli had far too much garlic and steak was raw with no char. Their red skinned mashed are the best and great bread. The gator bites were all breading with little meat- Harborside in Winter Haven has superior gator bites. Sorry for the poor review but this is the second time now within a period of 8 months. We won’t be back for sometime

We’ve been stopping through for the last 15-20 years .. I was amazed how many items had been removed from the menu... We drive 2 hours a few times a year for the fried green tomatoes.. was super disappointed that we couldn’t enjoy them this trip... and the dessert tray??? What happened??

My whole family loves Texas Cattle Co. We recently enjoyed Mother’s Day lunch there. My steak was cooked perfectly, the service was excellent, and I enjoyed the country music playing on the radio. Their house salad and mashed potatoes in addition to their steaks are the best in town!

Have lived in Lakeland my whole life. Used to LOVE Texas Cattle Co.
In recent years the quality has gone down dramatically.
I can make this judgment because my husband and I ate at the restaurant at least 6 to 8 times a year for over 20 years.
This visit was the second time I left the restaurant with no dinner.
A few months a go my family and I went for my daughter’s birthday. I ordered a ribeye well done (don’t judge) when it came out it was bleeding. I sent it back and they never brought my steak back. By the time the waiter got it back to the table, my family was done eating.
This time I ordered a sirloin, thinking the steak would be thinner. I ordered it well done. When it got to the table, it was literally raw inside. The waiter said they must have given me someone else’s steak. I then butterflied the steak to make sure they would get it done and sent it back. By the time the general manager brought the steak back to the table, my husband was over half done with his meal. I cut you not the steak again and blood ran out of it. At that point I was just done. How hard is it to burn a steak lol.
The staff is very nice as was the general manager, but that didn’t help that TWO times in a row I went to this restaurant and left hungry. Needless to say, we will not be visiting this establishment ever again.

I come to Texas Cattle Company every time I drive between home and the Tampa/St. Pete area.

At the time I arrived about 6:55 for my 7:00 reservation, my table wasn't ready and I had to wait at the bar for 30 mins.

I was called by Cody with a snotty attitude. He then didn't address me; just turned toward the dining room and took off. He didn't wait for me to make it through the crowd in the waiting area and never looked back.

Once I was seated, my server, Cherish, was on the ball, made me feel much better about my decision to dine at Texas Cattle Company. She apologized for Cody's behavior and asked I wanted to talk to the manager. I told her that it wasn't necessary.

My server took my order, brought my salad, rolls and water with great speed. Someone else brought my meal and dressed my potato. The meal was as Excellent as always. The steak melted in my mouth.

During my meal, I was greeted by the manager, Fabio Menezes, who asked how my experience was and I explained to him my experience with Cody. He also apologized and was happy to know about it. He reassured me that it shouldn't happen again. He gave me his card and told me to contact him the next time I come in.

My server checked on me a couple of times and she brought a box for my leftovers which she transferred for me. She was very attentive and one of the best servers I have ever experienced there.

It was a very nice experience even after the bad first impression of the host. The manager's visit was very reassuring.

Birthday Dinner Date - Special Occasion. I talked with the GM to make all arrangements. I expected better service. Meal was properly cooked. Baked potatoes were small - certainly not sized for a Porterhouse. Our waiter was training a new wait staff person. At one point some male waiter delivered the wrong steak to our table. He insisted it was ours but eventually discovered he had the wrong table #. Drinks came slow - as did refills. We were seated close to large tables with large families. I specifically asked to not be seated near children. Salad service went well, but at least 45 minutes went by between removing the salad dishes and bringing the meal. Check came and it wasn't right. I was overbilled. Took about 30 minutes to correct and return check. Then another 30 mins to run my card and return. This was around 9pm. The place wasn't busy. My wait staff knew this was a birthday occasion. No one sang a birthday song and my birthday date DID NOT receive the special birthday desert with candle that others were receiving around us. I've been to your restaurant on many occasions. I've always been very happy. This was her first trip to your restaurant. I'm not happy with the memory she has. This was THE WORST experience I've had at your restaurant. I know you can do so much better. Your staff really blew this one. Welcome to contact me. -Jim

They were very accommodating as we has several children (one infant) and everyone was accommodated! We had a rather large (10) party and we had no problems, and everyone enjoyed themselves!

Normally we eat TCC once or twice a month. Normally not to many issues.
Not sure what the problem was tonight.
Ordered a Cowgirl medium . When it arrived it was well done . Even when the server asked me to cut into it he noticed it was overcooked.
He immediately returned the steak to the kitchen . A few minutes later the manager returnedbwith another , said this one was medium and walked away. Server came over i cut into the steak and again well done.
The manager came back over apologized and offered to get another but by this time the others at table were almost finished and i did not want to wait again.
The manage did remove my meal from the check.
When you are paying almost 30.00 for a steak you want it right.
I would still go back as we normally do not have this can of problem.
The servers were on the ball with our drinks , they were no issues there.

We were seated 15 minutes after our 5:00 reservation (the restaurant opens at 5). Service was excellent, our waiter Marcus was knowledgeable and made our dining experience enjoyable. The food was excellent - our steaks were cooked to order and sides and salad were great. We had read about the new menu and free birthday steak change, but neither were an issue for us. You can upgrade your birthday steak choice if you don’t want the sirloin they now offer and still get a significant discount off of your bill. The manager stopped by our table several times during the meal to make sure everything was ok. We would recommend Texas Cattle Company if you’re looking for great dining in Lakeland.
