Description: Savor the finest cuts of steaks, chops and fresh fish cooked to perfection...
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.

A WONDERFUL STEAK DINNER

Went with friends to V.O. Ranch Steakhouse for dinner while staying at the Fairmont Hotel. The inside is delightful. An old brick structure. Service was excellent. Our waiter was a professional and was ready to assist us in everyway he could. The steak are beautiful and the pecan pie is to die for.

This place is what you think when you think of a steakhouse in Texas. Excellent food, a bit of an upscale atmosphere but not pretentious either. Treat yourself and go there.

This was my first experience in a real steakhouse and I was not disappointed. The steak was absolutely perfect. The service was outstanding. And, they had Creme Brûlée for dessert! I wish I lived in Dallas so I could go back!

We had a wonderful dinner at YO. This is a cool restaurant with western decor from 1880. Our waiter, John, was the best waiter I have ever had. Service was six stars out of five. We shared some appetizers. The green fried tomatoes were delicious. The rattlesnake chili was good too. Our steaks were perfect. Cooked to perfection and very... More

Random surveys from hotel staff all recommended the YO Ranch for great steak. Less than 10 min. walk from the convention center, this place was great. Great service. I had the Bison fillet - mouth watering excellence, grilled to my request. Smoked baked potato was great too.

Fancy place, great service and the most tender steak we have had in Dallas. The bacon wrapped fillet is amazing and has a good price(25,00). Most of the famous cuts cost around 46 dollars. Perfect place for a special night!
