    Our food was great and always is but there are times it takes excessively long to get our food. This date our order was turned in after a "large party", so it took forever. One of my kids fell asleep at the table it took so long. :(

    Great experience all except the hostess. The first person to see the customers needs to be smiling bubbly and friendly. This brunette hostess was the opposite. I hate that tourists in the area will have to experience her because she is not friendly like Texans should be. Maybe she was hungover not sure. Seemed like she was not happy to be there. Bartenders were great and friendly! Bloody Mary was great and needed after seeing the hostess' sour scowling look. We chose to eat in the bar.

    We had a brief stay at Stock yards to see some Texas history. It's a bit tourist glazed but still fun for a night. H3 was busy and vibrant with great food and beer. I expected the food to be good but the beer was a bonus.

    My daughter and I divided an 18-ounce bone-in rib steak. The steak was divided in the kitchen and brought on separate platters. Included in the price was a very good baked potato (enjoyed by my daughter) and a run-of-the-mill house salad. The bleu cheese dressing, however, was outstanding and made the iceberg lettuce palatable. Good sourdough bread (served with real butter) was piping hot. Sautéed mushrooms were well-seasoned and abundant. Overall, this was a very good meal, served appropriately hot (or cold) and a fairly good deal for the money. Now for the "excepts"...1. No Tanqueray No. Ten. available for martinis. 2. Hostesses were regularly moving chairs around the dining rooms. Suggest they buy more chairs! 3. It's darn noisy!

    The best part was the location in the heart of the stockyards. It was definitely a happening spot but with reservations we were seated in minutes. The food was good but not great. The service was attentive and friendly but the bar was slow... our appetizers arrived before our drinks. I would go again for a special occasion if I had plans in the stockyards.

    It's hard to beat this place for the ambience. It's a great reflection of Fort Worth ... so much history. Really enjoyable part of town. H3 is always great food. And the service is awesome too. We made reservations and when we got there, there were about 25 people in line. When we told them we had a reservation, we were brought right in and they took us to our table. Awesome! We highly recommend H3.

    Very patient waitress, top notch service. Food could scarcely have been better. Steaks were done to perfection, as were 2 other entrees. Queso (appetizer) was one of the best I've ever had. Will we come back when next in Ft Worth? You can bet your ranch on it.

    We have been to H3 Ranch a few times over the years and the experience is consistent. Cool, energetic, loud Cowboy bar and restaurant with really tasty food, friendly service and a tourist's price tag - read: expensive ($8 for a basket of chips and salsa?). We would go back more often if the value was a bit more in line. It's still a uniquely fun place that is worth an occasional visit. Don't forget your reservation, you'll often wait an hour or more to get in if you do.

    I took four friends to dinner on a Thursday evening. We were there before the crowds came which made our dining pleasure really great. The food everyone ordered was prepared exactly the way each wanted. The orders were timely, the food was hot, the drinks cold and the bread very tasty. The steaks were very tender and juicy.

    Dined at H3 Ranch for the 3rd time on a recent visit to the Fort Worth Stockyards for a concert at Billy Bob's. As always, the food was very good and the frozen Margarita among the best I've ever had anywhere. We had the Mexicali, an 8oz. sirloin with two cheese enchiladas, and the cedar plank salmon. I ordered the steak Medium. It came out closer to rare, but, it was good enough that I didn't send it back. The cheese enchiladas were even better than the steak, believe it or not. The salmon was very good, just slightly overcooked for my taste. We had the peach cobbler for desert. It was okay, nothing to write home about. $80 even, including tip. Probably the best place to dine in the Stockyards, if you're okay with the price.

    Previous visits were better. You can sit in a saddle at the bar. Ordered a Side Car but they didn't know how to make one. Tried to charge me for a person not in my party. Champagne cocktails were good. Told our server of a Cilantro allergy but found it in the pico - food allergy suffers beware. I ordered the flaming sirloin and it came as ordered, thick and tender. The flaming sriloin is not flamed tableside and there is no hint of any extra flavor from flaming it in rum. The baked potato came pre-buttered with optional 'chives' (green onions), cheddar cheese, and sour cream - no bacon bits. Roasted Habenero pepers on the side, extreme heat for those who like them - suffering for the unaware. Air conditioning was too cold.

    Our food was pretty good. Our table ordered steaks, chicken fried steaks and the appetizer platter. The steaks lacked seasoning. The chicken fried steak was good but nothing different. The chicken and ribs were seasoned good. The drinks were ok, however the margaritas were pretty pricey and lacked alcohol. The blue margarita, I can't remember the name but it was supposed to have a coconut liquor, in particular. The spicy margarita was pretty good- again no alcohol.

From the moment we walked in and ordered drinks and chili con queso to the end of the meal of ribs (for him) and the smoked sirloin (for me) we were met with Great Service and FABULOUS food!!

    Although the restaurant was in historical downtown Ft Worth Stockyards, this was not our finest dining experience. We went here for our 7th wedding anniversary dinner to try something on the upper end of steakhouses, well we were disappointed. My wife is highly allergic to black pepper, and although the waiter said he would advisethe cook staff, my wife had a reaction which ruined the rest of our evening. The food was ok and our waiter showedup when he felt like it.
