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.

My wife and I came here for our 1 year anniversary. Food was incredible. We tried the appetizer with exotic meats and it was incredible. Everything is a bit expensive but as long as you know that going in then you are fine. Service was also very good and the manager even came by to ask how it was going. I’d go back for another meal.

The food was tremendous.

The choice of seating was questionable, with the host placing us right next to another table, causing us to ask to be moved to a better social distancing spot.

Overall, we had a good experience, our waiter, Jorge, was outstanding. We will be back.

We received a gift card for the YO Ranch Steakhouse and were very happy for the experience. The wait staff were attentive, without be intrusive, friendly and efficient. Members of our party tried wild game cuts, entrees and cocktails we would not otherwise have ordered thanks to staff recommendations. I would spend my own money to repeat the dining experience.

There are better steaks to be had in the Dallas area, but for the price, these are decent. Their seafood options are cute and tasty, also.

Fantastic - FANTASTIC - Bison Filet. My coworker and I shared the Brussels sprouts, of which I could not get enough. And the Old Fashioneds that I had with Herman Marshall Rye were honestly in the top 5 Old Fashioneds I’ve ever had. Period. Highly recommend this place. Will be back next time I’m in Dallas.

Came to this place while visiting Dallas for my daughters birthday. Hands down the best Rib Eye I’ve ever had in my life. Filet mignon was great according to my daughter. The bone marrow garlic butter is a must, it’s a life changer. Also, try the Gouda Mac and cheese....soooo good. Everything here was amazing and I’ll probably drive from San Antonio again just to eat here.

I selected the steakhouse based on the reviews and the menu. I wanted to take my sister to enjoy a nice birthday dinner out & I'm so glad I picked them. They delivered excellent service despite the current times. The food was fantastic. I don't think we had anything we didn't like. My sister even said she wants to take her boyfriend back to the steakhouse because it was so good. I would highly recommend Y.O. for any occasion.

Service was almost outstanding due to the fact the start was very, slightly delayed with my initial drink but after that things were on par. Very appreciative that at one point our server informed us that he might take a while due to initial taking orders of a larger party that arrived. They did their best in following social distancing with having customers seat almost more than 6 feet apart from each other and all staff were wearing masks and gloves and felt safe about it. My husband and I dined for dinner and ordered: chicken fried lobster appetizer( very impressed at the flavors), Y.O.house salad, Wagyu 16 oz NY steak, Buffalo filet mignon, one side: whipped potatoes (went well with our steaks) cuz all steaks come with green beans and carrots: and for dessert: pecan pie with vanilla ice cream were all delicious!

I must say the Wagyu NY steak with bone marrow sauce on the side was so far the best and juiciest steak both my husband and I have ever had and even beats Chicago steak houses in my opinion (and we just moved from Chicago to Dallas recently). And as for red wine to pair with our steaks: Boen Pinot Noir, (Russian River, CA) and Quilt (Napa Valley, CA) were excellent as well!!! Thank you everyone (Y.O. staff)for a great, kids-free quiet dinner to ourselves. We almost brought our 6-year old twins boy/girl but so glad my in-laws offered to watch our kids. last minute. Food was great! Everyone was very attentive and friendly. Overall, 4.9 stars. Will be back more often! 👍🏼

This was for sure a good restaurant. I think that I was expecting something closer to fine dining when I originally ran across the menu and wine list for YO but, this was closer to country chic.
Our waiter was very nice and seemed to know exactly what he was doing, a true veteran but, seemed either burnt out or just a little rough around the edges.
The food was good-very good. The pimento cheese fritters are great. The chicken fried lobster was maybe a little bready but, good and came with a delicious lemon butter sauce.
The beef filet was excellent and cooked beautifully as was the venison chop. The buffalo filet was a bit overcooked but, still so tender. Would not recommend the quail medallions as they were heavily breaded and fried to death.
For the sides, the whipped potatoes were delicious! Maybe my favorite anywhere. The mac and cheese left something to be desired. From someone who really loves mac and cheese, it did not seem smoked gouda forward and was overall not very creamy. It had some decent but, thin flavor towards the bottom of the dish but, the top was covered with melted shredded cheese that looked like something that came out of a bag you’d buy at Walmart and this was the majority of the cheese on the dish. I’d actually be interested to see how they made it and why they call it smoked gouda mac and cheese.
For dessert the waiter brought us a slice of the chocolate torte for our anniversary, on the house, which was very nice. I enjoyed the dense chocolate slice with raspberry sauce drizzle that I’d been eyeing on the menu before coming.
The wine selection was very heavy on American wine though there were some nicely selected old world wines available and it was nice to see a decent price range also. We ended up with a 2011 bottle of the Refosco Scarbolo for about $75. It was a nice treat and went well with the meat and chocolate.
I’d go here again if I was close by though I might avoid the fried bits next time.
