One advantage of eating at a chain restaurant when you are in an unfamiliar place is the consistency of the food from place to place. At least that is what you hope for.
We were with relatives and did not want to chance a local eatery so we chose Longhorn for the quality of their steaks. Two of us had the Filet, one had the chopped steak and one the short ribs. All were reasonable priced and tasty. The waiter was pleasant, trained and efficient; the food was served in a timely manner.
We will continue to visit Longhorn Steakhouses.

we went to longhorn Steakhouse to see what they were like, and we found out rather quickly by looking at the menu prices. We thought we could of gone across the street to Texas Road House and got way cheaper food, The prices were out of this world, and you would think for the price they were charging you would get a good sized steak, I think they were charging such HIGH prices to pay for all the Decorations all through out the restaurant.

Went there on a Friday evening with in-laws who live in Lake City. I have been to many Longhorn's in other locations and was expecting the same excellent service and food I normally receive. I was very disappointed. First, the good things. Our waitress (Lisa L) was very nice. She attempted to make the meal very enjoyable. Our order was taken and serviced at a good pace.

Now for the questionable areas. We ordered Calamari (which was very greasy and left pools of grease in the bottom of the serving dish). The main courses included (2) Napa chicken (very salty) with green beans (cold) and rice or sweet potato, both of which were good; Chicken Tenders (good); 6oz Loaded Sirloin (medium, very tender); and a 12oz prime rib (ordered mid-rare, but served rare) which was so tuff that I sent it back and asked to have it removed from the bill. The waitress was very nice and offered to have another meal prepared, which I declined. No one from the management team ever stopped by our table to check on our service or our meal.

While dining and waiting on the check, I noticed empty tables (4-9) throughout the restaurant at any given time while there was at least twenty (20) plus people waiting to be seated. I stopped one of the other servers and asked why there where so many empty tables while the waiting time was 30 to 45 minutes. The server advised the kitchen could not keep up and management (no one specific person named) had ordered that seating be stopped until the kitchen could get caught up (which would happen again as soon as the people waiting were seated). This location has unlimited opportunities being located within 2 blocks of I-75 and U.S. Hwy 90. Perhaps if senior corporate management spent additional time at this facility and provided Mr. Manuel Arteaga (Manager) with guidance on steps to running the restaurant, this location can meet and exceed expectations.

I'm tellin' ya, this was one of the best meals we had on our 10-day road trip through the south! We really weren't expecting much, as it's located in the pretty podunk town of Lake City. Anyway, there were 6 of us & everyone absolutely loved their meal.

We started with salads- better than we expected in composition and size. Then 4 of us got steaks and one had their onion soup (bomb) and the last person got something called Napa Grilled Chicken. She LOVED it. It was made with artichoke hearts, portabella mushrooms, roasted tomatoes and had a white wine herb sauce.

For the steaks, we had the Renegade Sirloin and the Beef Ribeyes- both fantastic. Cooked exactly to order, juicy and tender.

They're apparently a pretty new place, so the service was a bit spotty & slow. I'm sure that'll improve with time, but it would have been nice for the waiter to let us know that he was aware we were waiting a long time & then check on us a few minutes after we got our dinner.

I hope more people write reviews, although right now with mine being the first and only one, they have an excellent average!!
