To preface, this is the sort of fine dining that inspires a laugh when residents of Fort Worth disparage the snobbery of their sister city. There is $115 steak on the menu. Enough said. It is pricey, but it is well worth it. Service: Amazing Food: Amazing Wine Selection: Great Atmosphere... read more

Lonesome Dove has got to be one of my favorite places for a nice steak in the metroplex. It's fine dining while still being cowboy. Their cocktails are top notch and they know how to make a real Old Fashioned. I like that buffalo steak is an option but it is huge. Seriously share it with someone or plan on... More

Went with a group of coworkers, tried the elk and found it to be awesome. the taste was more like beef than venison. I expected it to be gamey but it was not. someone ordered the rabbit/rattlesnake sausage bites and I tried one! They were very good. They wait staff was good and the place was crowded but they handled... More

This is actually the second time I've been to this restaurant and I was not disappointed. The menu is eclectic but still accessible and never pretentious. I love how they treat the 1st course. You can pick & choose how ever many appetizers you want to try and they plate them according to the size of the group. This way,... More

I've lived in Fort Worth for decades, and finally visited Lonesome Dove during restaurant week August 15, 2015. First, the restaurant week menu was limited but still fine. The food was excellent. Our waiter was excellent. The young lady at reservation desk was pleasant. The first impression walking in was how LOUD the restaurant was since the bar is basically... More

We dined at Lonesome Dove for our anniversary and had a great experience. We started with the rattlesnake/rabbit sausage and elk sliders for appetizers. We loved the sausage. The sliders were tasty but a little too rare for me and a little too sweet for my husband. We had beef tenderloin for our entree, which was delicious and tender. They... More

This is the finest spot to eat in Stockyards if you are looking for above average food .....not just another steak joint! This if truly 'Fine Dinning'!! Always has some sort of Exotic meat on the menu. Enjoy!

My husband and I love this restaurant. The steaks are wonderful. Go hungry so you can enjoy the appetizers as well as the desserts. Plan ahead and make a reservation because there is always a wait. They do offer valet parking which is great since cow town parking is crazy! If you are vegetarian, don't worry-- the chili rellanos are... More

I took my wife to Lonesome Dove for dinner and it was a great experience. So much to choose from and all incredible. I had the Garlic Beef Tenderloin and my wife had the trout for the main course along with the fried spinach and Mac and cheese. Every bite was followed by some guttural sign of pleasure. Christian, our... More

Located in the Stockyards area, if hadn't heard of Lonesome Dove prior to my arrival, I might have passed this restaurant by. That would have been a mistake. There were eight of us - six adults and a couple of children. We had reservations (a must on popular nights) and were seated immediately. The atmosphere is truly western which was... More
