Was in town visiting family and they suggested the place as there is a variety of food to satisfy a group of 7. (With children). Some had the buffet and others ordered off the menu. Everything was delicious. Make sure to leave room for dessert!! You will not be disappointed!!!

Stopped by to grab some bar-b-q for lunch. While waiting for food was able to buy some fruit and almonds. Could not believe the selection of dried fruits and seasoned nuts. Lunch was delicious. I highly recommend the blue lunch special!

We ate lunch here and they have an extensive menu from which to order. I had a chicken breast club, and it was quite tasty. My husband had a French dip. He said the sandwich was very dry, but dipping made it fine. The French fries are average. Our waitress was very good and kept our drinks full. This restaurant... More

Salad bar is huge by my standards, chilled plates and a nice assortment of salad items. the food was very tasty and quite a bit for the money. I was very pleased with the food, it was served hot and the waiter was... More

Fathers Day Brunch at the Fruit Yard was absolutely amazing. The food the servers were the best. We didn't have one bad experience. Did I mention the food was amazing. They had it set up so nicely, there was never a line. Even the Eggs Benedict with salmon on them, were perfect. You would think food setting in warmers would... More

I like ribs...not the best I have ever had, but pretty darn good! Salad bar is pretty good too, always better to get to that early before it sits too long!

If you're heading east on 132 this is the perfect pit stop! Great BBQ, excellent fresh produce, all you need for GORP, good service and gas all at the same time! If you're heading out to the river to fish, this is your "must stop" stop to pick up snacks and food for fishing, rafting and more!

The Fruit Yard has evolved over the years from a medium sized coffee shop which replaced an old hamburger stand to a large restaurant with banquet facilities, fruit and take-out food store with a gas station, music venue... Weekends are always popular (make reservations) nightly specials. Located about 10 miles east of Modesto on Hwy 132

I've dined here for over a decade and used to swear by anything on the menu. Unfortunately the last six months have been inconsistent. Service is always amazing. Quality, is either beyond excellent or misses the mark. Not sure if this is due to turnover or not. Will definitely continue to try because when they get it right it is... More

Fruit Yard is a good place to visit, they have weekly dinner specials, a breakfast buffet and ducks and chickens roosters! Beautiful little lake on the property that you can lunch and watch, feed the waterfowl.
