Totally worth the cost!

Lonesome Dove had high quality food, excellent presentation, and fantastic service. All this, and they do it inside the great atmosphere of real western restaurant. The bar had great drink items and a good selection. Be prepared to pay for what you get, but it is totally worth it. You can... read 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

The food here is a great cowboy food with its Dove and Froglegs. Every thing I have eaten there is great.

My husband and I were in Ft Worth for our anniversary, walking around the Stockyards, deciding where to dine when we saw Lonesome Dove. We had no reservation, but were seated immediately. The ambiance was great, the menu was awesome and unique, and the waiters were very helpful and friendly. We could not have had a better meal anywhere else... More

An absoulute must for visitors or locals. The servers are informative, friendly and attentive. We had the garlic stuffed tenderloin. Very tender and tasty.

If Rattlesnake and Rabbit sausage intrigues you then this restaurant is for you. Even if it doesn't sound appealing the taste is sublime. Elk and seared Fois Gras Sliders, curried seared shrimp and seared diver scallops and this is just a sampling of the starters. The food did nothing but get progressively better if that is even possible.
