It had been a while since I had visited the Golden Ox and I am very happy that I went back. The service and environment was fantastic. And let not forget about the steaks. Top of the line restaraunt, I strongly suggest you try it

You would be dumb not to eat here – This was the best expereince I have ever had with a large party. My brother and his family were in town and i decided to show them some of KC. The Golden Ox is where everyone told me to go. They were right. When we first walked in we were not sure if it was a place for my two nieces. We were wrong not only did they have a kids menu our waiter made them little flowers out of paper. everytime the come in town this is the restaurant they want to visit. It is the best steak, service and total dining experience in Kansas City. I don't know why anyone would be dumb enough to go anywhere else for steak.

This historical restaurant-lounge is definitely a beef-eater's paradise. – In Short
For more than 55 years, "The Ox" has catered to beef-eaters from its home in Kansas City's historic livestock yards. Steady and reliable service is second only to the high quality of the beef and attention to proper preparation. All steaks are aged and cut on the premises, then broiled over a hickory charcoal flame for taste and aroma. Among the top sellers are well-marbled K.C. strip steak and melt-like-butter filet mignons.

Just like the old days!! – I remember going to the OX when I was younger and always getting the best steak in town and the best service in town. A couple of years ago, we went down to eat at the OX because we had not been in a while and it stunk. Nothing was good. Recently I heard they were under new management, so I decided to give them one more try. Needless to say, it was just like the old days!! I could not be happier with the taste, quality, service, you name it, that came with my meal. I am truly impressed with the incredible turnaround from a year ago. I would strongly recommend going and eating at the OX to anyone I talk to and you too.

The place for Steak & Barbeque – Ox Apps, stuff mushrooms, w/crab, shrimp, cheese, BBQ Platter, & BabyBackribs. Smokey ribs meat slides off the bone. Babybacks tender juicy, sauasage flavorful, drummers & wings smoked to perfection with an incredible rub. Ribeye 16oz. juicy. Others had burnt ends/ribs wowwee, salmon w/dill sauce tastee!, chicken breast in citrus marinate unique, Filet Mignon tender lots of flavor. Great sides cheesy potatoes Superb! Price includes everything no ala carte pricing. Service was fantastic, Manager stopped by table to check on our meal. One of my friends with us was a veggie and the server said no problem... he had pasta/marinara sauce w/ mushrooms & salad. Something for everyone at the Golden Ox. I spoke to one of the owners on the way out and he stated it's under new ownership and many improvements have been made. mrm51

The Best – The Golden Ox has absolutely the best steaks at the best price in the city. The atmosphere is warm and inviting and the service is excellent. There's so much history to the restaurant you feel like your back in the old days of the stockyards. The Golden Ox is always a wonderful experience.

The restaurant has new owners [around the first of 2004], and the "problems" that some complained about in the past have ALL been taken care of. There's on-sight management, and the service and food have been WONDERFUL the 3 times I've been there in the last month, and I would recommend it to anyone. Give them a try! You'll be pleased!

Far Better than the Chains! – The Ox is the "real" Kansas City Steakhouse. It's not "another" Ruths Chris or Morton's....It's all Kansas City. Be sure to go to the original in the Stockyards!

I moved from KC 12 years ago and continue to stop by every chance I can! Sure the atmosphere is dated and a bit worn, but the steaks keep getting better and better and better (if that is possible). I've had so many bad steaks elsewhere, but I've ALWAYS had a great steak here!

My family and I have been eating at the Golden Ox for the past 40 years. It has always been our favorite. The steaks and prime rib have only gotten better over the years. (if that's possible)

We just enjoyed it again last month.

Thanks for the memories......
