steak dinner in Fresno?
We haven't been to Sherwood in 2 years after having been a number of times in the past. Our meal that night wasn't good and so we decided not to return.
But speaking of Sherwood makes me think of Jon's Bear Club in Reedley, just off highway 180 between Kings Canyon and Fresno. The place dates back over 50 years, under the current owner for 20. The standard menu is steak and seafood but the specials that Jon creates are usually very good.
Another old time place that I can think of would be The Landmark on Olive Avenue in the Tower District. Traditional steak and seafood place.
And what about Livingstone's Restaurant? (also in the Tower) Anyone been lately?
For an "old style", family run experience I'd suggest the Limelight, near the NW corner of Palm and Shaw Ave., in Fresno. It not just a steakhouse, but it has teriffic steaks and prime rib along with professional service. If you want something newer and upscale, Fresno now has a Flemings Steakhouse, on Shaw Ave., between 1st and Fresno Streets, in front of the Fashion Fair Mall. Great steaks and high quality service, but at a very high price (for Fresno). I know, "it's a chain", but a very small chain and I was impressed.
