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 had the pleasure of enjoying an amazing meal at Y.O. Ranch Steakhouse on friday June 7th. The food was amazing and I highly recommend visiting this restaurant for anyone visiting Dallas. We had the venison roll ups and antelope carpaccio for appetizers with the bison filet and elk tenderloins for our main course. Our server John was awesome and took amazingly good care of the three of us. We will definitely be going back the next time we are in town again.

The staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. The decor reminded me of the Y.O. Ranch itself. My ribeye was cooked perfectly and was delicious. My wife said her filet mignon was the best steak she has had in years. We enjoyed everything about the Y.O. Steakhouse and give it our highest recommendation.

I visited this restaurant on the basis of online reviews & I wasn’t disappointed - my friend & I went while in Dallas on a road trip - to try the famed Texan steaks ...however, I ended up choosing the Espresso crusted elk loin with port reduction & I have no regrets! The manager seems to make a point of saying hello to most guests too, which is a nice touch. While dressed in a dapper suit, turns out he hides some pretty funky socks - I appreciate hidden fashion dimensions like that :)

I think the YO Ranch Steakhouse is outstanding, so much so that I kind of wish I lived in Dallas so I could go back often and eat my way through the menu. Marcos, our server, was friendly and knowledgeable, but he did not crowd us and let us take our time. Cocktails were excellent. The Iceberg Wedge was scrumptious. Her petit filet, garnished with onions and musrooms, was superb. My rib-eye (au poivre) was succulent, juicy, and full-of-flavor. It was so tender you could probably cut it with a butter knife.The portobello mushrooms on the side were amazing. To finish, we had Jack Daniels pecan pie, and it is to die for. A wonderful experience!

I rarely go to these expensive steak houses. For the price you pay, the food and service must be perfect, and it rarely is.

I ordered a petite Filet, medium rare. When our steaks came to our table, mine looked much bigger. I cut into it, and it was cooked medium well. I flagged a waiter, and the agreed the steak was too big and medium well. They must have given me someone elses order. The took it away, and about 5 minutes later brought me a petite filet, but this one was rare (just seared 1/4" on each side, blue in the middle), not medium rare. They watched as I cut into it, and I think they immediately saw that it was not right. I did not want to wait another 5 minutes because my guests had already mostly finished there steaks. So, I just kept it and said it was OK. 3 or 4 minutes later I think the restaurant manager stopped by, because I think the wait staff had told him the second steak was not right. He apologized and asked if I wanted it cooked longer, but by this time I had enough of the customer service and just wanted to be left alone.

The service was otherwise very good, but the first time, the waiter brought the wrong steak, and the second time the cook did not prepare the steak correctly. Sorry, but for a $30 steak, that is not acceptable. The manager did not offer to take the steak off the invoice, which would have been the correct thing to do.

I am a repeat YO Ranch customer. I love their food. Has a farm to table vibe.
This was Mother's Day and they had a special menu. The food was excellent as always but I really like their regular menu. I especially love their wild game meats. Their venison chops are to die for. Service is always good. Excellent selection of spirits and wines.
Their regular menu salads and veggies are large enough for two to share.
I look forward to my next visit.
