We had THE BEST steak dinner and the most attentive, friendly wait staff. Mr. Fansler, you have running a restaurant down perfectly! It would be nice to offer valet parking as the parking lot is nearly impossible to navigate before 8 pm when people are circling looking for a spot (we missed our reservation by 15" because we were looking...

This was the first time going to this local favorite. It was my dads 88 birthday and he wanted steak so we came here. Food was ok at best but the laugh came at the end when the server bought a sliver of cheesecake with a candle which we said an abundant thanks too..On the bill it was $3.99!!!!!! It's... More

I used to like Yosemite Ranch, but I just can't any more. The last two times my family and I went the quality of the meal was not up to the standard set when they opened. The last time I ordered a rib eye rare and when it came out, it was well done! My wife's chicken was dry and... More

You don't get many like this, especially in Fresno. It's the neighborhood restaurant, in that it's in a shopping center out amongst the suburbs, and tract home neighborhoods, but it's got a big menu full of flavorful fare in a great environment. It won't be the best steak from the best chop house, but there are many very tasty options... More

My husband and I recently ate here for the second time. I thought the food was good the first time. However this recent visit sold me on how good this restaurant is. We had more appetizers and drinks and loved everything. I had one of the best steaks here that I have ever had. The service was good and we... More

My dinning experience here was nice. We had a party of of 7 and were seated promptly as we arrived right before 5pm. It was all of our 1st time at this restaurant and we all enjoyed our steaks, they were prepared as ordered. The only thing we all agreed on was that the green beans didn't appear to be... More

By the looks of this place, you would think you were about to have a dinner to die for! First of all and most importantly it's waaaay to dark in there! So bad we couldn't read the menu! The wait staff were friendly but rushed us to order. Food was just ok. Steak was tough and chewy with a lot... More

Read the reviews and good steaks, great service. Got some okay food. Crab cakes were bland. Green beans were peppery. Wedge salad a little too vinegary. Steaks, chicken, baked potatoes, and bread were great.

We've dined here two times recently. We've had "light" dinners and full dinners in the last month. They have great sea food (try the scampi; or nut-crusted calamari -- appetizer, light meal or regular); and the steaks are good, too. We like this place because it has low lighting, and you can carry on a convo and hear each other,... More

Ponzu grilled chicken with mixed greens salad, Spanish vinaigrette dressing with summer vegetable and smasher sides. Really pleased with the choices. Fresh tasting and the ponzu sauce was very flavorful.
