Yosemite Ranch is a locally owned steakhouse that really delivers. I've enjoyed the steak quesadilla on the happy hour menu (the best quesadilla I've ever had), and the rich entries for dinner. In this place I don't have to purchase the most expensive cut to get a great tasting steak; even their standard sirloin was awesome. Sides are good, too.... More

Great stakes and prompt service. We have been here the last three years for our special day. The take out orders are very good for when you have family over and do not have time to go to out to eat. We encourage others to eat at here.

The atmosphere was very appropriate for the location. Prices were average for a steakhouse. The Prime Rib was definitely disappointing. It tasted like an ordinary steak, not at all like prime rib.

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
