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.

For a steak place of that caliber i would have expected more. it's one of those "you have one job, cook a steak to order". Well that didn't happen, both my steak my guests' were under done, 2 different cuts of meat, but both came out raw.

We enjoyed our evening very much! The service was entertaining and delightful. The food was delicious. The Gouda Mac and cheese and pimento balls were phenomenal.

Our server George was very knowledgeable and made our date very special. I recommend the blood orange Moscow mule and buffalo steak.

The food was pricey, but definitely worth the price. My family and I were all able to find something we wanted, our waiter did an excellent job of explaining the menu and was both attentive and engaging. He did forget to bring out all our boxed food before we left, even though we stayed seated for a while to eat desert. The manager has since offered us a deal to make up for it, so while it was disappointing and an inconvenience they have made an effort to make it right.

tldr: An absolutely enjoyable experience in the restaurant, only upset that we didn't get to take all our food home. Management has offered complimentary food to make up for it.

Had a wonderful evening celebrating our anniversary here. The food was fabulous and service did not disappoint. Had the bacon wrapped venison and it was delicious. My husband had the elk for dinner and I had venison chops, both plates were amazing. We will be back.

Good Service and Great Food. For something different try the espresso crusted Elk tenderloin. It was amazing. One of my favorites is the hamburger. It’s ground in house and one of the best burgers in DFW.

My favorite steakhouse. Never a disappointment. Not inexpensive though. It’s a special occasion kind of place. But if you like meat, and great sides too, I can’t think of a better place to go.

We had a great anniversary dinner at YO Ranch Steakhouse! This was our first time here and our first sit down restaurant since quarantine. All staff had masks and were cognizant and considerate, there was hand sanitizer on every table. The ribeye was AMAZING. We got the exotic meat sampler and especially liked the venison. Loved the Gouda Mac n Cheese as well! Our favorite dish of the night, however, was the appetizer that the waiter recommended: venison wrapped in bacon with jalapeño and mozzarella - oh my!! To die for.
Quiet environment, extremely attentive service, excellent wine, great food, fantastic experience! We will be going back here.

Our steaks were overcooked. Ordered medium rare and rec'vd medium. For a steak house, charging $40, the steak should be perfect.

It seemed that the quality of the salads from previous visits, has also gone down.

Will not be going back.. time to find another steak house.

Small joint. Bartender wasn’t sure how to make certain drinks, but they were very strong so no complaints. Service was great. Quail medallions were excellent. Filet mignon was seasoned SO well, but not the filet kebabs. The kebabs were good, but lacked that flavor. Green beans were worthy of mentioning—super good. Rice, too. The Gouda Mac and cheese was not good at all. It was like macaroni with melted cheddar on top. Filled up, so didn’t get a chance for dessert. But overall, great experience!

A very nice experience. This was our 40th wedding anniversary celebration so we were looking for a special night out which the Y. O. provided. I had the bison filet and it was very good. My wife had the small filet which was flavorful but under cooked, she asked for medium well and got rare (red center). Our waiter Steve was excellent.

We really enjoyed our dining experience here. The food was great, some of the best steaks I have ever had but what made it amazing was our server Tomas. If you dine here, you have to ask for Tomas. I watched 4 tables be seated at the same time however he gave each table specialized one on one service. We felt as if we were his only table. He had fantastic recommendations for every section of the menu. Though they were very busy he never rushed us and kept encouraging us to take our time and enjoy ourselves. He was exceptional.

We had high expectations. We went for Valentine's day and it was disappointing. I'm hoping is was due to it being a busy night and much of the meal was premade. Service was fine, no issues there. The two appetizers were good but the rattle snake chili pie was barely room temperature. Both the steaks were cooked improperly. The one was supposed to be medium well as was cooked rare. It was way off. The vegetables were cold, undercooked and had no flavor. Desserts just average. My 3 stars is giving them the benefit of the doubt that thos was just a bad night for them.
