To label The Lime Lite a ?neighborhood bar? would do it a disservice. Serving the community for more than 40 years, The Lime Lite has come to know its ?family? exceptionally well and provides an inviting environment with fantastic service. As bartender Ryan Johnson puts it, ?When you come up to our bar, it?s about making sure [the customer] gets a good strong drink and great service, at a fair price.? Always remembering names, faces, stories, and -- just as important -- favorite drinks, Johnson makes each customer a priority from the moment they walk through the door. The Lime Lite?s dedication to quality does not stop with their customers, either. With the cocktails, the focus is on making sure that each drink is poured to perfection. With skilled bartenders including Johnson, The Lime Lite has not only been able to perfect the standard cocktails, but even offers a fantastic selection of specialty cocktails, which are always evolving. The first ?specialty? drink created for The Lime Lite by Johnson and was named ?The Hottie? by one of the owners? daughters. Brought to life years ago, this cocktail holds its own with the specialty drinks that are so popular in the bar world today. The taste is a subtle balance of fruit and citrus flavors, without ever being too sweet or too sugary. Even the most spoiled discerning socialite would agree that this drink is ?hot!? Owners George and Cathy Milutinovich have succeeded for years by being open to the creation of specialty drinks; they even feature them in the a monthly newsletter. Patrons can count on coming in for a quality glass of wine, or a scotch and soda at the end of the day, and their bartender will make it right for a fair price. The Lime Lite is the bar where everyone knows your name. Cheers!

The Lime Lite – This is a Fresno Classic. Other restaurants come and go, but the Lime Lite is always the best. The service is phenomenal and they have the best bartender in town. I've never been disappointed in any meal but I find myself craving the steak salad and the seafood louis. Whether you want steak, seafood, lamb shanks, or any of their choices, my guess is you'll be pleased.
Could be really nice but that's if you can stand the constant ringing of the phone. – Admittedly it's been some time since we were there but we are reluctant to go back. Food was good, service was good, price was okay. But the phone kept ringing very loudly and the resulting chatter was quite disturbing and thusly kept us away. The roaming receptionist said it had to be loud so she could hear it from wherever she was. Hope she's discovered Blue tooth since our last visit. Might give it another chance soon. You should too.
Fresno gem – The atmosphere is very inviting, a great place for a small group or a nice evening with a loved one. The service is always fantastic and the food is great too!
Nice place – Good dining experience. You are seated promptly and service is warm and friendly. Food is very good.
good food. always can count on the service being quality. this is a great place to go for holiday parties.
The Lime Lite, a Fresno tradition since 1964, is the place to dine if you want truly good service. – The Scene:
Owners George and Kathy Miliutunovich take pride in everything they serve, whether lunch or dinner, sandwich or filet mignon. At the Lime Lite you will be greeted with genuine hospitality, but this isn't just another average steak house; this is the type of place to bring a date you're looking to impress. The food is top-quality, from the fish special to the New York cut, and for the perfect dining experience ask to be seated outside on the elegant enclosed patio. This is one of Fresno's nicer restaurants.
If you order one thing:
Try one of the fresh fish specials.
Refreshing place to enjoy a meal – The atmosphere suggests warmth, pleasant conversation and fine dining. The service is very nice and if you happen to luck with having Lisa as your server you will enjoy outstanding friendly professional service from the moment you sit down. The selection of food is very nice though a suggestion of possible desserts would be welcome to reflect the character of the fine dining versus the somewhat standard offerings of most places here in Fresno.
One of Fresno's Best – This restaurant is truely one of Fresno's best. The owners treat everyone as if they were their best customer and the food and service are outstanding.
Small, but good! – The food and service are great at this little Northwest Fresno gem. While somewhat dark, the decor is pleasing. Great place for a date or post-game drink!
