Food is excellent although a bit pricey, but you do not mind paying a bit more once in a while for an excellent meal.

The food and service at this restaurant was appalling! The steaks were tough and the staff unfriendly. I could see into the kitchen as the swing door got stuck and it was filthy inside. Called the manager and he proceeded to scream at the staff for everyone to hear. Really bad experience, glad its closed down.

Meat Co in Clearwater closed down quite some time ago. The food was always good but near the end the chairs were so dilapidated you felt you will sit right through them. There is a new steakhouse now in there. Very similar to Meat Co...for now at least the upholstery looks fine :)

The T Bone is just divine. You would want to chew the bone if you could. The service is excellent, and beers served in chilled glass is a good add on. My wife enjoyed the buffet. I was a bit concerned when I was under the impression that the restaurant closed down when I walked past recently, so am not... More

When my cousin Jeremy visited from England I took him to The Meat Company at Clearwater because he is a real carnivore. We had excellent service and a lovely meal.

The food was good (upper price bracket), but the service did not always reflect the bracket they positioned themselves in. At times you visited and received good service (not exceptional), but the next time the service would really not be up to standard. The reason I believe they closed down, is because there were cheaper options with food as good... More

I came here quite a few times and this was only the first time we were a bit disappointed. I asked for fillet that's medium to we'll but it was full on well and chewy and I couldn't eat it. Other than that the food was great. And also the room we were in wasn't so nice. Hardly any light.... More

Had lunch with my family on a Friday afternoon. The waitress that served us was one of the best I have ever seen. Her knowledge of the menu and her recommendations were excellent. I had calamari, it was tender and very tasty. A member of our party had the trinchado and though very spicy it was tender meat and well... More
