We went to the Texas Cattle Company to celebrate my wife's birthday, which we have done in the past as well. As this is one of the most popular restaurants in the area, even with a reservation there can sometimes be a brief wait to be seated. However this time after checking in we were immediately ushered to our table. Our server was there promptly and within minutes our orders were taken. Large salads and 'Cheese Rolls' followed with our filet medallions, which were perfectly cooked, also their signature Birthday dish. This was the first time either of us has had the medallions and they were outstanding. Paired with a great bottle of Malbec, our meals were just great. The server was always close but not pushy. It was a wonderful evening and we will be back.

We thoroughly enjoyed celebrating my friend's birthday at Texas Cattle Company! The offer a discount of $29.50 on the check when another entree is ordered on the same check. Food portions are very generous and come out fresh and appetizing. We will definitely visit again!

The steaks were cooked to accurate temperature, the sides - although limited in selection - were prepared properly. We did have to ask for refills a couple times. Apart from that, it was dinner as usual at TCC!

A great place for above average food and dining. The chefs are spot on with the temperature of the steaks and chops we had. The service, as always, was outstanding. Everyone is very attentive and seem to truly enjoy their jobs. I guess the only thing I didn’t enjoy were the rolls. Hard and a little warm isn’t my favorite but they have a good favor.

They couldn’t cook my steak the way I like it. This restaurant has become way too expensive, even with a free birthday steak.

Cedar plank salmon is amazing. Steaks are good. When I go with the steak I always check out the cold case in front to see which steaks have the best marbling. I chose the Ribeye tonight. When they served my steak it was an end cut and looked like crap. I will stick with the salmon from now on.

The food and the service was very good, as it always is. The prices, however, have gone up drastically over the last few years. It's no longer affordable for a family of 4.

The service was perfect! However, I do not feel like I got anything close to a $65 steak. I ordered the dry aged porterhouse medium rare. It had more sinue and connective tissue than a $5 steak! My wife’s $55 cowboy porterhouse was the same way. My mom’s filet was perfect though. I especially love the salad with the minced olives. I’m normally a ribeye guy but have had issues with the ribeye there as well unfortunately. Sounds like the filet is the way to go from my experience.

Reservation was appropriate and timely. However specifically made reservations for 16 people. They sat us in a room with another party and split our tables. Not the purpose of a reservation at all. The other party could have sat where one of our tables were so that the whole party of 16 could have been placed together. Appetizer was great (fried mushrooms-taste and cooked to perfection) salad and bread were amazing as well. At first did not want to honor my 15 year olds school ID and birth certificate for birthday celebration dinner as she was unable to obtain her physical learners license that day, but then decided they would honor it. I appreciate that but was taken by surprise when they had to think about honoring it. Food came out and presentation was great and was brought out in a timely manner. I had ordered the New York strip $42 I believe and kids got the filet mignon for $20. That price for the piece of meat that came out was definitely not worth the price. And was not cooked to perfection. My New York strip was super thick and the toughest meat I had ever tried to cut no joke. The waitress immediately offered to replace with a different steak which I did. But even the taste of my husbands cowgirl was not up to par as past experiences at this restaurant. Someone else’s salmon in the party was raw... COLD 🥶 in the middle. They also took that back quickly and offered her dessert. I feel like the food for the quality is way overpriced and has been downhill. I feel like they are charging more for cheaper cuts of meat. If I did go back I would try the chicken or pork chops next time. Won’t be visiting again anytime soon. The waitress and customer service were perfect however, great job.

Had to send my steak back it was raw in the middle, asked for med rare! If your gonna charge $55 for a steak it needs to be cooked right! When it did come back 15 minutes later my potato was cold as was the bread! Will never go back!

I was told that as a new Florida homeowner that a tax statement would suffice in lieu of a Florida drivers license for a birthday dinner Manage refused , said the office did not have the right to say that. He comped an appetizer. This embarrassed our guests and made for a less than wonderful experience.

Meat was chewy and one steak was def from on older cow so it had a lot of cartilage in it…. Went for a birthday but so $29 of the birthday meal was covered.. However, they automatically add gratuity making your savings almost nonexistent .. so felt like a scam when 2 people go for a dinner with one having the “ free steak” and still ended up spending $100 for 1 meal with a 1 soda and an 1 up charge on a side… no worth it at all!!!!!!! But service was good.

Patio is a great option for a great sunset, Christmas lights & music too. Try the Blue Rose of Texas, it's a favorite. Make your reservations and have a easier time getting in. Can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Double pork chop & double chicken breast is a great option to share.

We went for my husband's birthday. As with everyplace else, the prices have gone up. The porterhouse is now $65. I think the 12 oz Filet Mignon was $52 now. Their steaks are delicious and we only go a few times a year, so I'm not concerned with the price increase per se. We did not order alcohol so cannot evaluate this area. We got the bleu cheese chips. Huge portion for only 2 people. It was ok for me, but hubby loved it. Too much strong flavor and bleu cheese for me. Salad and bread were good as always. Steaks were very good. Mashed potatoes were very good just as they came with no additives to them. Service was good as well. We always enjoy coming to Texas Cattle Company for birthday dinners. Would recommend as long as you're aware that if you use get your birthday discount, the tip will be added automatically, which was fine with us, but it's nice to know ahead of time, too.
