    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.

    The $59 sirloin was tough and undercooked. After speaking to the server, no attempts were made to correct the issue. Afterward, we called to speak to a manager and still have gotten no where! A return phone call was promised...still waiting.

    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.

    First time there with a business lunch of 10 in our party. Service was great and the food perfect! Didn't have much time to venture around to notice anything else but the location is great. Feels like you have stepped back into the Old West!! We had a visitor from Pennsylvania with our group and she was highly impressed!!

    I am so very glad that I chose this spot to share the experience of the Stockyards with a friend from out of town! 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!! This was my first time, but certainly will not be my last!!

  • Black Pepper Allergy AVOID
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014

    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.

    Bar none, the Flaming Tenderloin was the best steak I've ever eaten. Ordered medium-was cooked to perfection and so tender, you could cut w/a fork. Just the right amount of seasoning. Out waiter, Tony, was very attentive, always seeing to whatever you requested. We highly recommend.

    We are senior citizens. I wanted to treat my wife, stepson, and his wife, to a nice Saturday afternoon dinner in the Stockyards. I reserved a table for 4 at 4:30. When we arrived we were escorted through an extremely noisy bar area to a small room at the end of the bar. I asked the hostess to seat us somewhere less noisy, preferably in the dining area. She seemed confused about what to do and walked off. I escorted my wife to the dining room and selected one of the many vacant tables for us to sit in. We were told that the tables were for reservations only. I explained that we had a reservation for 4:30 and it had been confirmed earlier that day.

    After I sent my pork chop back 3 times due to being under cooked every one at my table was done eating befor I got my food back . I think I should have been compensated for some thing. If your going to cook pork make sure its cooked all the way through. It was good after i got it back for the third time but i had to put it in a togo box because everyone was done by the time i got it back .Not worth a 100 dollars for the meal in my opinion !

    This restaurant was on the cute corner of the stockyards old part of the town, and attached to the hotel. It had great atmosphere. The steaks were way over seasoned. The guacamole was good, the waiter prepped it table side. The shrimp we added to the steak was good. Being as we were at the stockyards, was hoping for a wonderful steak. Disapointed in that part, however over all was good.

    Good food and nice staff, atmosphere is what you would expect in Stockyards. Cowboys and cowgirls having a nice night on the town, in a old saloon style setting with clean and classic decor. Had a multi layer dip for appetizer and the filet wrapped in bacon, I liked the baked potatoe better than the diced style potatoes. Overall was very satisfied, nice place would recommend for a special night but would say not the most romantic restaurant. But what is romantic in cow town, that's why God made Cowboys.

    Everything started out fine, drinks arrived quickly, followed by salads and fresh bread. The problems started when the main course arrived halfway through the salads despite the place only being about half full. This is one of my pet peeves! The food was good, the corn on the cob too cold to melt butter, both entrees warm at best. I informed the waiter of my observations and he told me he would inform a manager. I expected to see a manager appear at the table to speak with us but the waiter re-appeared with the check (with $3 deducted for the cold corn) but a manager never came to our table. It's fairly obvious to me that the manager's nonchalant attitude towards customer satisfaction is the root of the problem.

    My wife and I have wanted to return to H3 ever since our first visit there in 2010. We live out of town, so our plans have always been to include a return visit on our next trip to Ft. Worth. The second visit to H3 was just as enjoyable as was the first. The food was great as was the service. The unique location adds to the special flavor of this restaurant and helps make our visits here lasting memories.

    I ordered a smoked sirloin after the description in the menu. I could not have been more disappointed and the menu description was a far cry from reality. My wife had filet which which was average restaurant quality, good but at their price point I think we both expected more. Nothing short of a tourist attraction. As a rancher, I probably expect more out of a steak than most, they really didn't come close to expectations.
