I am not a huge fan of stereotypical steakhouses, but my husband loves them and I am occasionally obliged to participate in his culinary adventures. What a lovely surprise Yosemite Ranch Steakhouse was. This was a splurge meal for me because I was having surgery the next day and was going to be NPO in a few hours. These are... More

Basically a good move up from fast foods. Service is good, menu is very broad steaks, burgers, fish, and specialty. I can only deem the food quality as average. They offer full bar.

For the price, this is one of the best steak houses. The quality of the cooking proves that you don't have to use a prime grade meat to get great taste. I tried their fish also, and it was just as well prepared.

I regularly visit YR when in Fresno on business and have not been disappointed. Most recently, I ordered the 14oz Ribeye Chicago Style served on a sizzling plate with butter. The steak was a great cut of meat and was a perfect medium-rare (not easy to get at some restaurants). I also enjoyed the double nut calamari app and the... More

We had a fun night here with friends. I'd like to give YR a 3-4 on value, but that option isn't available. I rated the atmosphere based on restaurants in this area; this is a Fansler restaurant and he does like to make you feel as though you've left the central valley. I know this restaurant has turned into a... More

Every time we have dined at this restaurant the food and the service has been excellent. Best tables are away from the bar. The steaks melt in your mouth and the fish is always outstanding. Last time here we had the Brownie Sundae for dessert and shared because it is huge and delicious. I wish they were opened for lunch.

Visiting family in Fresno, we dined at a Fansler Group restaurant, with a menu similar to Tahoe Joe's, they focus on steaks and seafood. The sweet potato fries as an appetizer are perfect, deep fried to perfection with a very tasty avocado dipping sauce. The "Bellini" adult beverage was excellent and refreshing but could use a bit more alcohol. The... More

This is by far my husbands favorite place to have a great steak. There Chicago style is so good. Salads are good, scampi is yummy. Great appetizers - you can make a meal from them,
