H3 Ranch was so good the 1st time we went just one week ago that we had to go back this week. The ambiance and service was still exceptional. We wanted to try the prime rib this time and although it was very good, it wasn't quite as good as the porterhouse and rib eye we had the week before, which was the best steak we had in a very long time. Don't get me wrong, the prime rib was very good, but it was going to be hard to beat our previous meal there. But the table side guacamole, the margaritas and the bread were still excellent. We will be back again when we want a great steak.

Our first experience at H3 Ranch was soooooo good, we couldn't wait to return. Our second time around was horrible. I ordered brisket and it was super Dry,my husband ordered a ny strip medium well and got it rare, waiter took it back to cook again, second time not so rare but blood still coming out. The waiter then proceeds to say he will get it back on grill again. At that point we are like no, who wants a $40 steak cooked for a third time. The waiter is like ok I will take it off. Then the manager literally strolls by the table in passing to say I took the steak off your bill, never asking would you like to order something else. At this point my husband is beyond frustrated! We came to eat, not send food back to be told to have a great day. That will be our last visit.

We ate lunch here after watching the cattle drive. The food was good. I had the ribs, which were tender and had good flavor. My husband and daughter both had burgers which they enjoyed. The service was fine, but the restaurant wasn't busy. Overall a nice lunch.

Service was not good from the start. We didn’t see our waitress for 10 minutes after being seated she messed up my order & my dinner had to be re done so my husband was almost done eating when you got my food. We should’ve gotten a discount at least off our order but didn’t even offer. No music played almost the entire time we were there so ambience was blah. We will try another of the many great steak restaurants there next time we visit.

Very good overall dining experience. Stellar waitress, cool environment, love the online reservation form. The things I would change would be larger appetizer portions, and the quality of our filet mignon, while cooked and seasoned perfectly, was only quite average. For $30-$35 meal, I would expect a better quality beef, especially in the historic stockyards setting. The bread was great, salads were fresh, the most outstanding salad dressing, and the pan fried potatoes were superb. We will be back hoping for that better quality of steak!

The 12oz sirloin was thin and in several pieces, the king crab plate was sent back cause it was completely over cooked, chicken fried steak was good but it really hard to mess up chicken fry in TX, the mexi plate was the best out of all meals. Service was crap for this caliber of restaurant. Will NOT be going back and I don’t recommend for the price point and experience.

This was easily one of the best 10 steak dinners I've ever had. The selection is enough to allow choices but not overwhelming to confuse you. The wine selection was good, but my date's bourbon on the rocks was a bit watered down. The server was great, very attentive.

The food was great and the authentic look of the restaurant was very cool. The place was a little noisy but that is to be expected with the theme of the old wooden floors and open saloon style seating. You are going to suffer a lot of reflections and carrying of voices when there isn't a lot to absorb the sound. I have dined at many old country style themed restaurants like the Buffalo Bill Irma hotel and restaurant in Cody Wyoming, the Beehive Saloon and Restaurant in Albany Texas, and Babe's Chicken Dinner House in Frisco, Texas where I live and that is the expectation. All great places to eat by the way. Service is always good, food is excellent, and the atmosphere relaxes you as you take in the old country style.

Steaks were great! My husband had the porterhouse with was AMAZING! I had the filet, it was tender and Both cooked perfectly. We have no idea why the bad reviews, glad we did not listen. We are used to quality steaks from farmers, butchers and 5 star restaurants. These definitely stood up to that quality. The desserts we great as well. Definitely share them!! We ordered the peach cobbler AND the brownie, impossible to finish! Loved the atmosphere and service was great!

Started out fine but went downhill after ordering drinks & appetizers. Our waiter was not attentive. We had to get his attention for everything, from ordering our entree’s, more drinks, then once our entrees came and they were sub par, we couldn’t find him to tell him. The steaks were cooked correctly (medium) but they were tough and had more fat than they should have. Plus the only thing hot on the plate was the baked potato. Will probably not go back which is a shame. Located in a Very fun area with a lot of touring around & stores to shop in.
