4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2014 NEW

The food was 5 star and so were the prices, so be advised. Our waiter took the time to over over the menu. Our group of 9 had different choices/wants for our starters. We were told we could "customize" to what each person wanted. The service was excellent. Because of the price, for us is a VERY special occasion place.

I have been avoiding this place for a while, mostly because I expected it to be overrated and overpriced. I've heard mixed things in the past and the people who I trust seemed to not be in love with this place. While a different experience altogether, I think the food at woodshed, his other place, is just ok. All that... More

Best steakhouse I've ever been to, no doubt about it. Even without my six shooter. There is no more creative menu anywhere in the US....Rabbit rattlesnake sausage appetizer. Kangaroo carpaccio nachos. Elk sausage sliders. Roasted garlic stuffed tenderloin. Jalapeno cucumber margarita. Very accessible wine list (we had the Orin Swift Prisoner). Fantastic service from knowledgeable, professional servers. If Scotty could... More

Had an absolutely amazing private dining experience at Lonesome Dove. The room and staff were perfect, charming, but very upscale for Texas. The rattlesnake sausage is a MUST. Orzo mac and cheese a close second. Definitely go!

The restaurant is a little walk outside the stockyard area and isn't too easy to spot, but it is worth finding. The atmosphere is different, very relaxed and local. The staff will gladly suggest a wine and what they bring will be very good. The service is friendly and the food is excellent. I had the Elk and it was... More

You got friends visiting DFW from out of State? Here's a can't miss itinerary. Head for the Stockyards and start touring at M.L. Leddy's Shoe Store. Shop for some boots making sure to check out the $12K all-Alligator boots and the photo of George and Laura Bush presenting Prince Charles and Camilla a pair of saddles hand-tooled by M.L. Leddy's.... More

I've reviewed Lonesome Dove before as I've eaten there many times over the last decade and I am sure I gave it glowing review as it has been one of my favorite foodie experiences. However, I will not be returning after this last visit. Such a shame, but it seems Chef Tim Love has moved on to other endeavors and... More

Went to LD for a friend's birthday. None of us had been there before. We had a drink in the bar where the bartender was friendly and helpful with both the food and drink menus. The wine was excellent! Our server for dinner was also friendly and attentive. We had the elk sliders (heaven!) and the lobster hushpuppies for appetizers,... More

Well the entire meal was fabulous...we went for restaurant week for a 'peak' to see what it was like. We were offered the menu for that, but they told us we could order a la carte for the appetizers, so we indulged. We had the rattlesnake/rabbit sausage; elk sliders; and lobster hushpuppies. What a combination of flavors, my favorite was... More
