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.

“Great steak; good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Our family visited Y.O. after a volleyball tournament. We ordered steaks and burgers - all were very tasty. The signature queso appetizer is worth a try. Staff was efficient and food arrived promptly. Definitely worth a visit.

“Great Lobster”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Had their filet and chicken-fried lobster. It was terrific. I didn't eat all the coating on the lobster, the fried part was a bit too much but it made the lobster delicious and moist. The steak was excellent and the waiter provided wonderful service. Overall, an experience I would recommend when in Dallas. Not too expensive either.

“Indulge your appetite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Nice environment and the server very knowledgeable of food allergies and presented suitable options for our needs. They offered delicious meats and great options for your carnivorous appetite. Despite we visited on a Saturday afternoon it offered a tranquil/family environment. Its cleanliness is another hallmark for the restaurant.

“Great Texas steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

We went here to experience a Texas steakhouse and enjoyed a great meal. We couldn't tell if the decor was dated or rustic but either way I was a comfortable, relaxing ambiance.
We got seated immediately (despite it being a Friday night) and our server was very friendly and patient with us out-of-towners. Our beef and buffalo steaks were both excellent and cooked as requested.

“Great apps & drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

They did a great job accommodating our business group of 18. Highly recommend the venison wrapped in bacon, the Bison steak was overdone but we had a table of 18 , I'll give them he benefit of doubt.

Great menu of drinks & dessert was fantastic, apple cobbler w ice cream.
