Everything is always good and the same no matter where you go, the thing that is the one thing unique to any chain restaurant is the staff. This staff was one of the best we've ever had. I ordered the ribeye (unbelievably great) but I couldn't eat much. A manager came by and asked if everything was OK, when I... More

Waitress Samantha was so sweet, really made me feel at home. Also, the Monday Chicken Fried Steak dinner was a great deal for a huge amount of food.

Cotton Patch has lots of good stuff on their menu, so you have a lot of choices. It's mostly home cooking type stuff and it's tasty. IT's a big place and there are usually a lot of people but the service is reasonably quick and the food is good..

Had a good lunch here as it is fairly consistent. Had the fried green tomatoes which were good and the crawfish duo which is always good and flavorful. Squash side dish needs to be rethought out. Otherwise a good meal with attentive service!

Cotton Patch is always good wholesome country food. The servers are nice and the prices are right. It's hard to go wrong here. Check out the board for daily specials. This is my favorite restaurant in Lufkin.

We had a great experience at this restaurant. The food came out hot and delicious. Our waitress, Samantha, was friendly. She made our dining very enjoyable. Be sure to try their fried green tomatoes and peach cobbler. We will be coming back for more.

This was our third time to visit a Cotton Patch restaurant in Texas; each time it has been en route or returning from a cruise in Houston/Galveston. We most recently visited the restaurant in Lufkin. I ordered the strawberry pecan salad and, on the advice of our server, substituted salmon for the chicken. I was embarrassed when my husband asked... More
