Description: 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.

Best buffalo steak I have ever had, cooked to perfection. Definitely recommend a visit & try the buffalo steak. Staff are very friendly & the decor is pretty cool. Will definitely be back on our next visit to Dallas.

We did not have reservations so we ended up eating at the bar. The wild game mixed grill consisting of buffalo, quail and venison was one of the best meals I can remember. Service was excellent, I can't recall the bartender's name but he was quite entertaining and was quick to anticipate our groups needs. Just a great Texas steakhouse... More

I was surprised that this place was so good, given that it is in a touristy area. The menu offers something for everyone, even my vegan friend!

Five-Star dining in a semi-casual setting. Our server, John (from New York) was extremely knowledgeable and professional. We were kinda undecided about our selection and he recommended a wonderfully delicious dish, Venison chop, quail and Buffalo filet! It was simply amazing! The atmosphere was cozy and the staff, friendly. If you are in historic downtown Dallas and want to treat... More

Had reservations for 7:30 on NYE. Place filled up shortly after that. Great cocktail. Great appetizer. Super Prime Rib. Excellent dessert. Flawless service. Prices were inline with typical steakhouses. Don't know what else to add. Y.O. simply delivered a great meal and a great experience.

I love eating wild game and had to try this place on our visit to Dallas. Particularly good were the lamb rib appetizer and buffalo filet. I got the 10 ounce buffalo filet and my wife got the wild game trio, with a 5 ounce buffalo filet, a venison filet and two quail medallions. Even though the buffalo fillet was... More

Went in with great expectations. Will have to say, the house salad with goat cheese and garlic dressing was dressed perfectly, the venison roll ups were excellent. The main course was cold. Sent back, came out cold again - so hungry we just ate it. Good, just poor service. Manager offered dessert but we just didn't want it.
