We stopped here on our way through Lufkin to Louisiana. The food was excellent, I had the strawberry pecan salad and the turkey club. Our waiter, Dylan, was also exception. He was easy, approachable, and attentive to everything we needed. I'd definitely come back.

This review is based on several visits to this location. On every occasion my order has been wrong. When I order a steak Medium and I get it Rare, it's just wrong.

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!
