3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

Could not believe when I ordered a crab salad at $20+ it contained fake Krab instead of crab

“One of our frequent local choices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2012

The Lime Lite has been one of our favorites for 20+ years. If I am craving a filet I never think of going anywhere else. The lobster here is a Fresno tradition on Thursday night. The lobster is the best and largest that I've had anywhere. In fact I don't order lobster anywhere else for fear of being disappointed. Sanddabs are another local favorite here. The warm, friendly service make you feel appreciated and comfortable. This family owned and managed restaurant has been a favorite of many Fresno area families for several generations. Although ownership has recently changed the tradition of this restaurant has not.

“Been a long time actually...sorry”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2012

Used to go there when I was very young...it is kind of a bar and dining all in one...food is good but if you don't care to eat in a bar I would skip this one.

“Elegantly Tucked and Rolled”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2012

Each year in Fresno a group of restuarants have a price fixed menu for a week. My husband and I went to the Lime Lite. The food was excellent. It came with an appetizer, soup or salad, main dish and dessert. I had a shrimp appetizer, blue cheese wedge, lamb and cheese cake dessert. Yum! The owners are long time Fresnan's and they always treat us like old friends and guests. Try it.
