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.

I loved my dinner here. My best friend and I hadn’t seen each other for 3 years. She lives in Massachusetts and me in Houston. While she was here for a conference we had dinner here to celebrate 30 years of Friendship. Our waiter was awesome and the food sooo good. Thank you for the amazing memory.

Y.O. Ranch Steakhouse was OK for lunch but not what I had hoped for. First, the salad dressing had too much garlic which over powered all other tastes. The salad greens were fresh. The bread was OK, nothing special. As far as the meal itself, the vegetables were over cooked, the french fries were tasteless, and the steak (rib eye) was tough with very little flavor. The restaurant itself is not ADA compliant and should be avoided by anyone with a mobility handicap. Perhaps they do better with evening meals but, with so many excellent competitors in the area, I don't plan to find out.

This was an anniversary dinner and it turned out great. The food was very good, we ordered the Gouda Mac n cheese and sent it back, just was not well flavored or creamy. The filet was great and the wild game plate was fantastic. Maybe one of our favorite dishes was the corn bisque- superb!

A friend from Australia was in Dallas for the first time ever - we wanted to give him an experience he could not get elsewhere - we chose Y.O. Ranch because of the numerous wild game choices on the menu.

The food was great - we shared everything, from the venison roll ups and fried pimento cheese, then elk, buffalo and venison, Gouda mac&cheese, Brussel sprouts, then bread pudding. We wanted a Texas wine - the waiter steered us to a good one.

Really enjoyed our evening - I recommend it, particularly if you are in the mood for wild game.

This is the second time that I have been to YO Ranch Steakhouse and it exceeded my expectations once again. I had the trio of bison, quail and venison for dinner that was outstanding. The bone marrow butter is to die for and is a must have. Great place and definitely recommend.

We went to the Y.O. for New Year’s Eve. The menu was set up for the occasion. We ordered a drink Moscow Mule which was terrible, tasted like vodka and lime juice. The Prime rib was cold, the beans were raw and cold along with the carrots.
The service was not any better than the food! There was only 1 side plate for two people for our bread. After we told the server about the drinks not being correct he asked “ what does it taste like”. No apologies for the error. The manager later confirmed the drink was not correct and stated “ we talked about your drink”! We ordered another drink, Crown and Seven, which was short poured. Another disappointing adult beverage choice, which was $12.50 each.
Considering the limited menu options, you would think that the preparation, prevention and flavor of the meal would be spot on! Very disappointed regarding the entire NYE meal. Will definitely not return for another $200.00 plus meal from the Y.O. Ranch Steakhouse.

Repeat customer and I was very disappointed in our evening. Thought the food was mediocre and over priced. Will probably not return anytime soon. The next day the restaurant called me for a rerveiw and i told them i was disappointed. She said a manager would be calling to talk with me and i never hear from him.

This place never disappoints. We went for NYE and had the pre-fixe menu, which we wouldn't typically go for, but it was worth it! The salad and bisque were delicious, the filet was melt in your mouth, and the venison and elk were a great new experience for us as well. The ambiance is great for so many occasions - date night or group dinner. The service was wonderful and not stuffy like so many steak houses. Everyone is very friendly!

The food was wonderful! Corn bisque was velvety smooth and infused with corn flavor! The antelope carpaccio with arugula was tender and flavorful! Parmesan toast points served with it were amazing! Our steaks were overdone and quickly corrected by the great waiter John and the manager Steven! The replacement steaks were tender and full of great flavor! The peppercorn cognac sauce I ordered was perfect with my filet! The Gouda mac and cheese was to die for! Great time! Great food! Great staff! John rocks! Apple tart was great finish to perfect meal!
