YO has beef and some interesting game options as well (buffalo, etc.) but it's not overwhelmingly "gamey" so don't be afraid. Everything has a slight southwestern flair (well, it's Dallas...). Try the grits and shrimp, it's really good and has just the slightest hint of heat/spice; we loved it. We all had filet; one of us had the smoked filet,... More

Small group to have lunch. It was a good experience. Nice menu before 4 pm and a bit richer one after. Friendly staff help for choose. Steak and whiskies were quite ok. This place is suitable for very big groups as well.

I was very excited to go here. The server was very attentive but honestly, TOO attentive. I could not hold a conversation with my other half for the life of me because every 15 seconds he was at our table or one of the other servers/runners. Also, meals was quite small and the bill was quite large...not my favorite place... More

I visited yesterday for lunch while in town for a conference. I had walked past earlier in the week and looked at the posted menu and decided then I wanted to return. It was a good decision. I ordered the Tenderloin sandwich from the lunch menu. The tenderloin was cooked fresh to order and perfectly. It is topped with carmelized... More

I was so excited to try this #1 rated steakhouse in Dallas, after hearing my client rave about it more then several times. I arrived at the restaurant with my husband and was immediately irritated. I could not find the host. After more then what seemed appropriate, she pops her head up from behind her stand and put her phone... More

Missed international flight at DFW and became 24hr tourists. Decided to visit downtown Dallas and lunch at Y.O. Ranch. The garlic-cilantro salad dressing is wonderful, very subtle but full garlic flavor! The Buffalo Filet was so tender it melted in my mouth as I ate it. Was frustrated at flight delay but very glad to have the opportunity to experience... More

Three of us ate here upon recommendation of hotel concierge. It is in the heart of downtown and has been there forever. Owner walked around to make sure all was well. Steaks were fabulous, as well as all of the sides.

I was excited about this place and told many wonderful things. The servers were very knowledgeable and attentive, the atmosphere was also very nice. But unfortunately the steak was not to my liking. Many places try to re-invent the wheel and drop an amount of seasoning and wine and only God knows what else into their steaks. While the steak... More

Savor the finest cuts of steaks, chops and fresh fish cooked to perfection in a relaxed, elegant atmosphere at the chef-owned Y.O. Steakhouse and discover for yourself why Jim O’Connor of the Food Network declared the Y.O. Steakhouse as, “one of the nation’s finest steakhouses.”
The beef at the Y.O. is U.S.D.A. Prime and is hand-cut in house. In preparing our steaks and other meats we employ a method very similar to the one the ranch hands have been using for more than 125 years. Seasoned with our own brand of herbs and spices, our meats are charred on a flat top griddle and then finished by being seared with our secret finishing sauce. This process traps in all the juices, resulting in a succulent, tender steak.In addition, we are legendary for the extensive wild game selection on our menu, and many of those same animals roam freely over our 48,000 acre ranch. For those in the mood to try something out of the ordinary, the Y.O. Steakhouse offers several types of venison, game birds and our signature dish, the buffalo filet mignon.An excellent selection of seafood rounds out the menu. Nightly specials at the Y.O. Steakhouse include lobster, shrimp, salmon, sea bass, tilapia and other fresh fish.
Texans are known far and wide for their hospitality and at the Y.O. Steakhouse you will receive the same sincere reception that has made the Y.O. Ranch legendary. The Y.O. servers are knowledgeable, friendly and strive to ensure your dining experience is a memorable, delightful experience.
Whether dining or simply relaxing over a cocktail with friends, the Y.O. Steakhouse offers a warm, inviting atmosphere. With its 100-year old brick arches, iron accents and candlelit tables, the main dining room delivers an authentic steakhouse dining experience that is relaxing with a touch of elegance.The Y.O. bar is the perfect spot for enjoying a drink before or after dinner or grabbing a quick bite. The rich, deep wood and historic black and white photos create a comfortable ambiance to enjoy the fully-stocked bar and extensive wine list, including one of the largest half-bottle selections in Texas. Dining on our beautiful patio under Texas Live Oaks and amidst overflowing flower baskets is an excellent option for a casual lunch or dinner while taking in the energetic atmosphere of Market street .The Y.O Steakhouse private dining, bar and banquet facilities, can accommodate parties from 20-300 for business or pleasure, day or night.
