Steak
The highest quality Texas prime beef is the main focus at The Y.O. Ranch Steakhouse but its legendary for its extensive wild game selection, and many of those same animals roam freely over our 48,000 acre ranch and namesake near Kerrville, Texas. For those in the mood to try something out of the ordinary, The Y.O. offers venison, elk, wild boar, game birds, and our signature dish, the Buffalo Filet Mignon. Most of the beef at The Y.O. is local Texas Black Angus beef and hand cut in house. We employ a method very similar to the one the ranch hands have been using for more than 125 years.

We were in Dallas for a hockey game and went here for a dinner date. I absolutely loved this place! It is a perfect date night experience! Our waiter Tomas just might be the best we have ever had! He took amazing care of us even though we are St. Louis Blues fans from Missouri. Seriously, go and ask for Tomas and you won’t be disappointed!

Almost everything was perfect. However, we ordered the Tomahawk steak medium and it came to us very rare and bloody. We picked around and got enough to eat there and took the rest home to give to the dogs. Everything else was so wonderful we didn’t want to complain while there, but I believe it is helpful to inform when there is a problem.

wonderful Thanksgiving three course meal. greated at the door. had a great table. Crystal our waitress was very professional and pleasant. everything was great except for the style of serving. one person takes the order. another delivers the food and a third takes care of the drinks. I am old school and like one person to do all three. but I would highly recommend this restaurant to any discriminating dinner. one of the best old school restaurants in downtown Dallas.

Good food. The service a bit abrupt not done with finesse. I don’t think we will return. Paid parking near the restaurant.

Loved the food- great service, but the desert menu was unimpressive. We planned to get dessert but didn’t like any of the choices on the menu. But great first time experience otherwise

We had a party of 5. Seated promptly. Beverage orders were taken shortly. We had a variety of entrees and salads, with a quail appetizer. Everything was excellent. The elk was outstanding. Two orders totally disappeared. The pork chop was large enough that it was not completely eaten, as was the chicken calvados. No dessert, but the after dinner coffee was a hit.

They were not very busy but very well staffed and yet after I ordered my waiter was nowhere to be found. The waitress at the table next to me must have felt bad because she had to ask me several times if I needed something. Steak was ok, tequilas were nothing to write home about and the service was some of the worst I have had in my travels. Grab a steak somewhere else.

Waiter was excellent. Food was fantastic. Noise level a bit challenging at time approached 8:30pm. Might try to reserve closer to 6pm instead of 7pm next time but will continue to visit.

We ordered two filets. Both to be cooked medium. One came out perfect, about 2” thick cooked perfect and very tinder. The second filet came out rare and 1/2” thick. The filet was very tough. It really appeared to be a sirloin not a filet. Everything else was excellent.

The Venison appetizer and Elk Tenderloin were excellent. The vegetable sides arrived stone cold. My wife's 6 oz. Filet was mediocre... Our server was very attentive and did an excellent job.

Convenient downtown location. Was staying at nearby Westin and it was an short and easy walk. Had the 6oz steak which was cooked just right and tasted amazing. As good as the steak was, the Mac and cheese was even better. It was perfect to split as entree unless you are a big eater. Also ordered the Brussels sprouts which were good but a bit too sweet and undercooked for my liking- but I like them lightly burned. They were definitely cooked through which was a plus. The bartender, Kelsey, was very nice and made a terrific Old Fashioned! Would definitely recommend this restaurant!

We were at the Y.O. Steakhouse on a very busy night, the Friday before the Oklahoma vs Texas annual football game. The service was excellent and everyone's food was excellent, from the filet to the elk tenderloin, to the wonderful buffalo filet. We can't wait to go back again next year.

8 for Dinner 2 we’re over cooked and sent back for at least 20 minutes and still sub par. Very tight seating and noisy. Sides were good but the beef was not prime in my opinion. Resv was flawless and appreciated.

This was our first time to visit Y.O. Ranch, but not our last! We had a wonderful meal, including the amazing apple tart for dessert. Our waiter was great, and we were pleasantly surprised at how quiet it was. A great place for a group or for date night.
