This was always my dads favorite
This was always my dads favorite place to get a steak. Hadn't been there in yntears. Decided to take the family for Easter brunch. Glad we went! Brought back a lot of good memories! Food was good. Service was great! Plan to go back for a steak dinner in the future!

Good spot for Easter Brunch
We went for the Easter Brunch and the selection was vast and the food was very good. Big crowd which made for a little more noise than usual and more crowded conditions for the Tables due to larger groups in attendance. Overall the staff was very attentive and the food was constantly being monitored and refilled as needed. Again, overall a very good experience and the price was very reasonable.

We had a good time and good
We had a good time and good food. Naturally steak will be my next meal but for a kid friendly/Easter brunch it was great. Kids liked the Western theme. Our waiter was very friendly and especially nice to the kids. Reservations were right on time. I had asked to be seated close to buffet as I am crippled and it worked well where we sat. Thanks for a great celebration!

A perfect place to dine and enjoy conversations without the background noise of many area restaurants.

I bring a group of students
I bring a group of students to a conference in KC. I have tried to make the more formal special meal with the group at Golden Ox. I have yet to be disappointed with that event.

Great food, Great reputation and history. Lousy location - the stockyards are no more and the West Bottoms are deserted now that Sprint Center has replaced Kemper Arena for concerts and games.
Time to load up all the great old photgraphs of the stockyards back in the day and the '51 flood and move the Golden Ox to the P&L, near the Sprint Center so people can find it.
Greta steaks, good service and reasonably priced.

It is first and foremost a steak house, well-prepared, tasty steak. Located in the old stock yards close to the Royals stadium it was quiet the night that we ate there. We were looking for casual great steak and alocal suggested we try the Golden Ox--and she was right. The staff were friendly andf accomodating. The sides were excellently prepared and the steak all that we were hoping for. We will definitely be back the next time we are in KCMO.

Andrew and the staff were wonderful and very attentive. Memorable birthday party. Great food and service.

My friend and I were visiting Kansas City and was looking for a steak house.
Could not have made a better choice. The food there was excellent. My friend got the filet mignon and I got the Kansas City Strip, both were cooked just right and very tender. If you are ever in Kansas City you need to visit the Golden Ox

A Classic KC Tradition
You won't regret visiting this KC Tradition. The finest of steaks, great service and a decor that will take you back to the old cattlemen days of the West Bottoms. If you are looking for great steaks this is the place!

A REAL GEM
THIS HISTORIC PLAE HAS BEEN AROUND FOREVER - THE FOOD IS SO WONDERFUL AND THE SERVICE CANNOT BE BEAT -THE PORTIONS ARE GENEROUS
LOVE THE STEAKS AND THE HOUSE STEAK SOUP IS THE BEST
LOVE LOOKING AT THE PICTURES OF BACK IN THE DAY - MY ADVICE IS FOR ANYONE LOOKING FOR A GREAT STEAK TO GO HERE AND TELL YOUR FRIENDS
IT IS SO WONDERFUL TO VISIT A PLACE THAT IS NOT PART OF A CHAIN
LOOK FORWARD TO VISITING AGAIN VERY SOON

We always enjoy Golden Ox. The servers are attentive and the food is always excellent. The scenery on the walls is nice, showing part of the history of the area. Seating in the booths is especially comfortable, so good for enjoying the meal in comfort. Food on the buffet is kept properly hot for the hot items, and cold for the cold items. Very welcoming atmosphere and personnel.

We had a very enjoyable dining experience. We were entertaining an out of town guest and this was truly a wonderful dinner.

A venerable dining establishment
In KC. I remember coming here as a kid during the '60s when it was surrounded by the stockyards. Not much has changed since then to my recollection. We were in very early so we had the place to ourselves. Service was great. I had the prime rib and lobster bisque. Not the best I've ever had but certainly not the worst, either. It was cooked to my order and was very enjoyable. All in all, a very nice evening.

As fun as I remembered
The Golden Ox is legendary! I was looking for a true "Kansas City / western experience" for out-of-town friends and this was perfect.

Old Stockyard Charm
Back in time when branding irons and chuck wagons meant a good meal was provided for all*******

Simply put.....be prepared to enjoy some of the best steaks in Kansas City. The scene is comfortable. The noise level is low enough to enjoy easy conversation with all parties. The staff is attentive without hovering over you shoulder....as one course ends, the next is arriving. Enjoy a great meal without crippling your household economy.

great service, great steak
Service was over the top great but not to much. Just perfect for our business dinner. The steak and potatoes were amazing....best In KC. Some of the side dishes could use improvement but were didn't go there for tomatoes and green beans.

Quantity of food exceeded
Quantity of food exceeded my expectations and the quality was excellent. We got the combination appetizer and it was a meal in itself. Will definitely be coming back.

Really liked the ambience of the Golden Ox. Such a historic treasure right by Kemper Arena. The story of the old stockyards is told throughout the restaurant. Service was great and so was the food. Great for a group.

We eat here 1-2 year when in town for cattle events at Kemper Arena. Some might consider it dated, we consider it memories of time past. We love the stock yard photos and that the decor never changes. Its like an old friend to us. To have dinner for two with drinks / dessert is easy $100 - but we love it and hope this gem stays right where it is - preserving the days of the stockyard in KC. The prime rib was perfect. I was disappointed that my favorite broiled tomato had been removed from the menu and the bread is nothing special. I do not care for the basket of crackers (individually wrapped) that is placed on the table - and they have no ginger ale - isn't that a bar staple? The wait staff is SUPERB

The Steakhouse of Steakhouses
This has to be the original steakhouse -- it is IN what used to be the stockyards. Very clubby atmosphere (I am sure it has not changed in years!). Steaks prepared right where you can see them, and they also have seafood etc for others. A really good experience.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great prime rib!
You cannot do better if you're looking for non-vegetarian options. The original location on Gennessee is the best if you enjoy history and a genuine "cowboy" atmosphere. These wonderful, original restaurants are disappearing quickly. Don't miss your chance to experience this one!!!!!

No matter when you visit the Golden OX the food band service is always Great.

GREAT Thanksgiving spread...
This year we decided to dine out on Thanksgiving. Golden Ox put together a great spread with all the fixings. The price was excellent!

Great Thanksgiving Dinner . . .
We love Golden Ox anyway, but we've been going for holidays recently & love it. We went again this year & only had to wait about 5 min. for our table..We'd made reservations, but still - there were LOTS of people. Our waiter was personable, happy, & came around just enough. The food was well presented w/many choices. My companion had traditional fare & was delighted with the variety & quality. I had salmon, as I don't eat red meat. It was very good & the servings were just right, even though I knew I could go back for more. We had a bottle of wine, and never felt rushed, even with the crowd. Golden Ox has these feasts well choreographed to accommodate lots of diners gracefully. A lovely Thanksgiving dinner for us who choose not to cook!

Had guests in town and could not find a place for barbecue on night after Thanksgiving. Used Open Table to locate a spot near Union Station and luckily found Golden Ox. Had not been here for years. Not much has changed in the decorum. Got right in and found a surprising amount of barbecue choices on the menu for our guests. And they were good. Had the prime rib myself which was fantastic. Wife had the chicken. Why do you order chicken at a steak house? She was disappointed. This is a classic KC location that should not be forgotten. The staff is friendly, and attentive.

It was the fourth time I visited
It was the fourth time I visited Golden Ox in 2 months, and so far I have had good experience.
More importantly, prime rib is the best, which is why I visit Golden Ox.
