Description: For over 40 years, Texas Cattle Company, a family owned and operated restaurant, has been a local favorite serving only select USDA Prime and Choice, three year old grain-fed beef. We steer clear of fancy cooking methods, flame-broiling our steaks over a natural wood-burning fire made from Florida citrus and oak wood. At Texas Cattle Company, our pledge is to exceed the expectations of our guests by providing highly personalized service, signature steaks and the freshest seafood prepared to perfection. We ensure the most exceptional dining experience, leaving our guests with a desire to return for more!

“Best Steak in the area”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

Although popular with birthday folks for its free steak offer, we love it for the steak - even at full price! High quality raw ingredients, attention to detail when cooking over real wood fire, and a decent wine list make this a great local steak house. Our favorite is the Rib-eye, but the Cowboy Porterhouse is always a winner and enough for two to share. The Escargot is always a winner, but the potato chips with bluecheese and garlic is an addictive treat.

“Not as great as we were told”
Reviewed 14 October 2013 via mobile

My wife and I went to Texas Cattle Company on the recommendation of friends. While it was nice, we felt it was greatly overpriced for the quality off food and dining experience. There are many places to get a better steak at a lower price. Not as great as we were led to believe.

“Not a cheap night out, but worth every dollar”
Reviewed 9 October 2013

I have tried to make it a tradition to get to this amazing steak house at least once a year. The food is top notch and the staff is very pleasant and helpful. It is better to make a reservation if going, they will take you as a walk in, but you may have to wait a little while.

We stopped in Sunday evening to be greeted by a hostess who seemed like she wanted to be elsewhere, no smile no eye contact. Our waiter was lacking any kind of energy you would expect from someone wearing a cowboy hat. The salad was horrible, the worst I have ever had, although they did replace it. My steak was flavorful but under cooked and a bit fatty, the potatoes were excellent and robust with flavor. The place was nice but outdated and the section we sat in was very dark. Overall I will not be going back to this place again.

“Best Steakhouse in Lakeland”
Reviewed 23 September 2013 via mobile

TCC is a reliable choice for well cooked beef, great chicken, and amazing endless salads. While it is not as upscale as some of the steakhouses in the rest of central Florida, it is a great convenient choice if you are in Lakeland.
