Shy's Original Steak House

Locally Owned Business Gives Communities a Unique Character

Fillmore Forward supports our local businesses. When a favorite business succeeds we celebrate, when they closed their doors for the last time we wonder what becomes of such a cherished space. 

Well, we have a new establishment that has filled such a space located at 690 Fillmore and Broadway where Jermaine and Aisha Williams are managers of what is now Shy’s Original Steak House. It is a take-out business that seems to be managing comfortably keeping late hours, they are open six days a week and closes at midnight, which was nice to hear since everything in the community closes at 5pm.  (read more)
