I lived in Solano County for many years and always considered Cattlemens to be the best steakhouse in the county. However, my last visit leads me to believe that the standard of excellence I previously enjoyed is a thing of the past or at least slipping badly. This latest visit was supposed to be a treat for my birthday. My wife and I ordered our meals and were enjoying ourselves until the entrees arrived.

The butternut squash was COLD. Not like it had been sitting-and-waiting-to-be-served cold but still-cold-from-the-refrigerator cold. My wife had requested medium for her rack of lamb and it was bloody-raw in the middle. We sent both back to the kitchen. The squash was promptly returned, COLD again! It was sent back a second time. Now I had a choice. I could continue eating my steak or wait for my wifes lamb to come back and have my steak cold.

Eventually, everything was returned but the lamb was still raw in the thickest part of the cut. Instead of sending it back for another indefinite wait, my wife ate around the raw part and we left the rest.

I would expect something like this at a cheaper restaurant but not Cattlemens. At no time did anyone ask us if we enjoyed our meal and I felt like nobody really cared if we enjoyed it or not so we didnt raise the issue at the restaurant. An interesting thing we observed was a large party seated nearby getting a discount and an apology. Apparently we weren't the only ones getting a lousy meal.

Next time I think of eating at Cattlemens I'll make the drive over to Winters and eat at the Buckhorn or maybe I'll just go to Denny's.

This is a great restaurant to go to if you want steak and
all the trimming. They have a great dinner selection on
the menu. The price are good to high. The staff is
helpful and friendly.

Be sure and make reservations ahead as this is the place locals as well as travelers can be assured of a great meal.
The large bar, complete with TV's and comfortable couches in front of the roaring fireplace is a great place to wait for your table. The meals are served family style starting with a large bowl of salad and several choices of dressing as well as warm home-baked bread. We have never gotten a bad meal and would highly recommend any of the chicken or steak dishes.

This is a wonderful place for families both large or small!

PROS: A great place to take the family for any occasion
CONS: No reservations? Expect to wait a while

The food here is great, as was the service we recieved. I don;t remember the prices so they must have been reasonable, but not super cheep, or I'd remember. We did have two toddlers in our group, and while the staff were very accomidating and helpfull with them, it probably isn't the best place for very little ones. Not much in the way of kids entertainment. But I'd certainly go back with a group of adults!
