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.

The food was amazing but our service was lacking. My husband and I were sat at our table and promptly forgotten about. We watched two other tables be seated and given menus before we finally flagged someone down and asked for menus. They comped our first round of drinks to make up for the oversight. What really irritated me about the service was that our server repeatedly referred to my husband and I as young man and young lady. We are both 30 years old and did not appreciate this.

It was Mother’s Day. The room we were in was very noisy due to the piped in music. But they immediately turned it way down when we asked them to do so. The food was outstanding. Out waiter, Ivan, was great and very pleasant.

I was quite disappointed. My first steak was charred black and dry, despite ordering it medium rare. The manager was very apologetic and had the kitchen fire a new one. It was better, but it was quite rare inside. I didn't have them remake It and simply ate it. It did not come remotely close to approaching my expectations for a $50 steak (and I've eaten at other high-end steakhouse and paid similar prices). I expected each bite to make me think of how wonderful it is, but instead I kept thinking about how good I wish it was. When you are paying $50 just for the piece of meat, you expect it to be fantastic. On the upside, the blue cheese wedge salad and spinach sautéed in brown butter were absolutely excellent! We shared the bread pudding for dessert, and it was dry. Our server was pretty inattentive and had to be reminded of forgotten requests. The manager, on the other hand, tried his best to make sure we were happy.

we stopped in early pm for a drink at the bar, francisco was working. the beer selection was very good. we shopped at wild bill's. walking back to our hotel we met tony at the 7-11 when he saw our wild bill's shopping bag. that evening we returned for dinner. steve and francisco were working the bar. this time we had cocktails, my martini was well made, as was my wife's margaretha. they were friendly and and had time to chat. a very nice bar experience. we were seated for dinner , brandon was our waiter. our cocktails, again, were great. he is very good. knows the menu, serves properly, with the appropriate interval between courses , and is almost invisible when passing by. our meal was excellent.

Was looking for a place with wild game on the menu in Dallas and YO Ranch hit it out of the park.
For appraisers, the Antelope Carpaccio was an delicious and unique experience and the Venison Rollups were very good. A great start to a great meal. The family each ordered their own dishes but we all shared tastes so I can report that my Wild Game Mixed Grill, a venison chop, buffalo fillet, and Quail Medallions were all wonderful. From others, I also tried the Filet Mignon, the Espresso Crusted Elk Tenderloin, and the Prosciutto Wrapped Sea Scallops. All of these dishes were well prepared and tasty. For sides we shared Wild Mushroom Bread Pudding and Maple Dijon Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Bacon. The only mild disappointment was the Brussel Sprouts. Personally, I would have cut them in halves rather than roasting them whole but that's just a nit pick. Overall an excellent meal that we all really enjoyed. If you have a taste for wild game, YO is the place in Dallas.

Overall, the restaurant was very nice. The elk rollups were outstanding, as were the quail medallions. Everyone's steak was cooked to perfection, except my Prime NY Strip that was tough and chewy. I was able to eat about 50% of it.

My wife and I went for our anniversary. The food was fantastic! We got the venison roll ups, bone in filet special, and the elk. That was by far the most tender meat we have ever eaten! The staff was knowledgeable and friendly. The desert was great as well. We had the bread pudding. The noise level inside the restaurant was quiet even though there was a block party going on outside. There was a mix up with our order, but it was resolved quickly. The staff and management were very apologetic. Management even offered complimentary desert for the mix up. Overall we were very happy with our experience and will return.

The Y.O. is a favorite in town. Bills itself as a steakhouse BUT the menu is so much more with many surprises in a good way. Food is good, service is good and no negatives to even mention. Even on crazy busy nights we always manage to be seated within 5 minute or so of reservation time. Highly recommended

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!
