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.

I really wanted to love this place. We had spent the weekend in Dallas, and went to Y.O. on a Sunday night. I had read their menu online, and saw that it had good reviews, so we walked from the hotel to have dinner. As I mentioned, this was on a Sunday night. The place was less than half full,... More

In the Heart of Dallas, Tx. YO Steakhouse has a legacy unlike any other of the steakhouses. This makes the Cuts of Meat succulent, and the atmosphere warm and rich. A place to enjoy the love of your life, or just loving life.

The cowboy chicken fried steak was unbelievable. Staff was quick and food was very inexpensive. Wish I was in Dallas long enough to try more of their menu.

In town on business. Had the bison filet which was delicious and done perfectly. Done as shown in photo. Delicious margarita. Nice wine list at reasonable prices. If you want steak I would highly recommend.

On a positive note the restaurant itself and the staff were all very nice and the wine lovely but the food less so. My husband's scallops to start... More

We ate here for our Anniversary and enjoyed it. The food was good and we had a really nice waiter who was on top of it all night and took great care of us. I can't say that it was the best steak I've ever had, but the side dishes were very good, my biggest regret was not having more... More

We wanted to go to a real "Dallas restaurant" after visiting the 6th Floor Museum. Just wandered around the historic west end area and stumbled upon this place. Nice atmosphere both inside and out. We chose to sit on the outside patio which was lovely. The menu was very interesting and had choices other than just beef. We had the... More

I had a steak salad and while they botched the cooking of it (asked for med rare and got blue pieces and well done pieces), they fixed the issue. It was super flavorful. I'd go back for sure.

I tried the sirloin steak, medium to well done. It was a great cut of meat and cooked to my liking. I would have loved more gravy but it was still good. I also ordered the fries and portobello mushrooms. Great flavour overall. The only issue was the price of the steak. It's pricey everywhere in Texas due to the... More

The buffalo filet mignon was the best steak I've ever eaten in the States (nothing beats Argentine steaks). It was thick, juicy, tender and cooked perfectly. The sides of mashed potatoes and grilled veggies were also delicious. Our waiter provided perfect service. I'd return here any time!
