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.

YO is the place for a good, not great, steak. Very friendly staff, ranch style ambiance, apps were great (venison better than ribeye). Good to try at least once, and good for wild game options.

Business dinner. Steaks undercooked and sides were mixed up. The surrounding area was a ghost town. Zero ambience. Disappointed w Texas experience.

Food was just ok. Steak(14 oz prime ribeye) was very thin! Cooked as specified to med rare it was ok in flavor, but just was very thin. Sides chosen were gouda mac and cheese(ok) and cheese grits(not good)!

The food and atmosphere were outstanding. The collard greens were almost as good as the steak! We had a reservation but we still had to wait fourth minutes for our food. Plan ahead on reservations! Well worth the wait.

Their steaks are decent, and the price is reasonable. But the service need some improvements. I understand most of restaurants are short-handed. But the server didn't even come to our table to refill water. And we had to wait for 15-20 min to get out bill.

Excellent food - the front dining room looks to have a lovely ambiance, however, we were seated in the back room. This looks like a room usually used for larger groups, of which there were a few. It looks like a basic cafeteria - not the vibe we were hoping for on date night. There were several larger parties celebrating birthdays. We would have much preferred the front area - we will specify next time.

We were in town for a conference and a friend recommended YO. Wife and I went and place was nice, great area in downtown. We made reservations so wait time was less than 5 min. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Food was great as well. I liked the variety of meats they had. I got to try buffalo, fried quail, and elk. My wife had a filet mignon which was delicious and tender.

Ordered lemonade and tasted water down the food wasn’t good either. They brought us the bread and butter after we we got our meal and there was a small bug in the butter. Waiter was not very attentive to us as she was to other people around. Very disappointed.

Fun place with a wide variety of meats. The bison steak was recommended but we weren't terribly impressed- it was very good but the flavor palate did not live up to a filet mignon. The shrimp and grits were very rich and every bite was delicious. They did not have soft drinks because they were not able to acquire the carbonation component. Our waiter was so nice and very knowledgable about everything on the menu and was happy to answer our questions and make suggestions. I shudder to think how many horned animals gave their lives for those chandeliers but when in Rome I suppose. I would go back again as I would like to try a non-bison steak next time.

Hi Courtney! Thank you for your review! We are glad you enjoyed your overall experience with us! We understand your concern about the chandeliers but please know that it took many, many years to collect the horns from fallen animals from the Y.O. Ranch. We look forward to serving you again!

My steak was extremely dry, spinach didn’t have any flavor, and the restaurant was very loud. Tables are placed very close to one another. The table behind me kept bumping into our table and chairs because of how closely placed we were.

The quality and taste of the food was disappointing. It was my first time visiting and won’t return. Texas Roadhouse, Salt Grass and Outback far exceed the quality of YO.

Three words: Chicken. Fried. Quail. It's part of the mixed grill and was absolutely phenomenal. This should be a standalone dish. The buffalo and venison were both great, but the quail stole the show.
