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.

The Y.O Steakhouse private dining, bar and banquet facilities can accommodate parties from 20-300 for business or pleasure, day or night. Your guests will experience a uniquely Texan and memorable dining experience combined with the highest quality food and service available.

All good except my pecan pie came hot and I eat it cold. Next time ask me if I was it heated so I won’t burn my mouth.

The blueberry cheesecake was amazing-my colleague loved it.

Just recommend you ask if you want your pecan pie hot or cold.

Year in and year out this is my favorite DALLAS restaurant. Not a chain and not trendy, authentic Texas ranch decor and ambiance. The menu is constantly tweaked to provide new twists on old favorites. Clearly best in town for a “Taste of Texas”

It was our wedding anniversary and since we have kids we decided to have lunch here. Glad we picked this spot. Even though it wasnt a kids friendly restaurant, they were super nice and ready to help us with our 7month old baby. The server was very sweet and the floor manager was very helpful and friendly. The food we had Ripeye steak and buffalo Filet Mignon in medium. It was a little more rare than we would have liked. However the meats were so tender it was our first time that didn’t mind midium rare. It was just so tender and so good!!!! Can’t wait to go back.

I feel bad having to rate the food as low as I did, but having a $100 tomahawk poorly butchered in front of us, then sit while plates are gathered, wait even longer because they didn't have steak knives, and finally served to us completely cold, was really depressing. Bringing my friend to her first steak house visit on her first day to ever step foot in Texas was embarrassing.

I ordered the second most expensive cabernet by the glass, but they presented it to us was the "house cab," then when I asked them about it they didn't go check or say the correct order, they just changed their story and said yes it was "that one, the one you ordered." Then after all that, I would put money on it being a pinot noir considering the light fruity profile.

The wait staff also cleared every plate, glass, and utensil the second it was emptied or no longer in use, so it was very distracting to have even short conversations.

We didn't feel welcomed, more like we were being rushed out. Considering I knew my friend Our reservation was at 8:30, and tables were still being seated as we were being pressured to leave.

Our group of 9 had a truly great experience! Service was spot on - attentive without crowding or hovering, and very knowledgeable. The venison rollups and fritters were excellent appetizers and the Game Trio Platter was outstanding! Included buffalo steak, venison chop, and quail medallion. Also good selection of family style sides. Definitely recommend!

Ordered steaks with two sides, spinach and the mushroom bread pudding. Everything was extremely salty!! Ordered the pecan pie for dessert, was served warm, but had more of a sweet potatoe texture, coffee latte was cold. We have eaten at other steak restaurants that compared in price and was much better.

No one does exotic game better. Country fried quail, venison, bison filet...all delicious. Perfectly cooked. Portion size was plenty. A wonderful Friday night business meal in the heart of Dallas. End the meal with the bread pudding, you won't be disappointed, but you'll need to share because it's big.

I was very disappointed with this restaurant experience. After researching this restaurant I had high expectations but that quickly dissipated. They were late seating us and then seated us in a very poor, low energy area of the restaurant - like we were an afterthought. The service was brutally slow - they said it was because they were busy, but they really weren't that busy by the looks of it. Not a place I'd highly recommend for a business dinner .... if I were you I'd seriously consider finding another spot.

Food was outstanding and the service was fantastic. It is pricey but I believe you get what you pay for. I got the wild game plate which was excellent. My wife got the petite rib-eye which was still more than she could eat. While being on the expensive side, the wait staff make sure you understand exactly what you are getting. Our waiter took the time to thoroughly explain everything and answer all questions. Overall, our experience was very good and would go back for other special occasions.

The steaks were different and I think that was a good thing. I could literally taste the grass that the cow ate. I don’t not like it. I wasn’t amazed by the taste, I had a NY Prime Strip Steak. It wasn’t the best and it wasn’t the worst. It was acceptable.

Fantastic steak, fair prices and really good service. The only complaint I have is that the steamed asparagus had hollandaise sauce (ick) and it wasn't mentioned on the menu, it just said steamed asparagus, so that was a huge letdown. I should have sent it back, but I always feel guilty to do that so I just didn't eat it.

Love the atmosphere and the food was amazing. Service was good, once we were acknowledged. We sat alone in a back room for almost 15 minutes with nobody speaking to us and It took someone getting up from the table and going around the corner (where we could see and hear serval wait staff) to ask for service to get someone to even offer us water. Have not had this type experience before here so maybe it was an off night but bothersome nonetheless
