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.

Everything was great until I bit into my venison chop and chewed into a big piece of plastic. That pretty much ruined the rest of the meal for me. They did take care of it, but still, that's hard to come back from.

This is my second visit to this restarant. Game meat was delicious. Service was a little on the slow side but friendly. Ambiance is lively and the decor very rustic.

Bison filet and venison chops were excellent. Totally different flavor and texture, but both were very tender.

The game items are by far better than the beef. Our server was very good about checking on us; we rarely had to ask for anything. Our dinner party had a guest with a gluten allergy which was well-accommodated. We also had a guest with a mobility issue. The tight seating made it difficult for any movement with a cane. Had we had a walker, wheelchair, or other device, it would've been impossible. At the end of the evening, we asked to exit using the handicapped ramp only to be told they didn't have a key to unlock the door. As we left, we saw tables with diners blocking the handicapped entrance. The food and service in no way make up for being out of ADA compliance.

Waited 30 minutes to get our table. Very loud, no ambiance whatsoever. Expensive steak tasted like cheap steak. Waiter forgot to bring my wife
Her baked potato. After eating our bisque, waited 15 minutes before the entree was brought out. Never offered a desert menu.

Always love going to YO Ranch Steakhouse. The bone marrow butter is incredible over a great steak. The bison felt was awesome, and would definitely recommend it.

Meal took over 3 hrs because food took over an hour after we ordered to get. Never received salads. They overreached on guest count. Couldn’t handle the business they had.

I have been there every year, multiple times, for 8 years. My table this time was so lopsided in the far dining room I felt I was sliding out of my chair. I asked to be moved which I was. This table was very wobbly. Food was good as always. Service was not.

Excellent service. The tomahawk ribeye had great flavor but it truly sized for two. Porterhouse was a kittle thinner than expected but tasted great. Save room for the pecan pie.

Food was fantastic, wine list was fine...a bit weak on the bourbon offerings, and they put 6 of us in a tight table - the restaurant was not packed. It would’ve been nice to have more space, a larger table...food and good service made-up for it.

New Year's Eve dinner at Y.O. Steakhouse is a perfect way to close out the year and prepare for the next! The options afforded for starter, entrée, and dessert are all excellent, and the portions are not skimpy. The service is excellent, bar none.

I know what I am doing next year for New Year's Eve dinner!

We visited on New Years Eve and loved the food. Our server (Crystal) was wonderful! Very helpful with recommendations.

Other than my moms, it was the best quail, I’ve had.

Some of the best and friendliest service I’ve had in a long time. Was talked into the bison filet and it did not diss a point. Definitely a smidge on the pricey side pending what you get, but the quality matches the price. Would definitely return if I’m back in town!

The overall experience was good but they weren’t able to make our reservation on time so it pushed us 30 min which made us late to a Christmas Concert.

We were in Dallas for a hockey game and went here for a dinner date. I absolutely loved this place! It is a perfect date night experience! Our waiter Tomas just might be the best we have ever had! He took amazing care of us even though we are St. Louis Blues fans from Missouri. Seriously, go and ask for Tomas and you won’t be disappointed!
