When Rick Hauck and Joe Saccone saw a defunct restaurant building on Coventry Road in Cleveland back in the 80s, they had an idea – remodel the building and open a steakhouse. With no extra money to advertise, they relied on word of mouth, and it worked. In 1988, the first Hyde Park Steakhouse opened with 9 more to follow. The New York chophouse atmosphere proved a successful format. Zagat has regaled them as “Ohio’s Top Steakhouse.”
The Hyde Park Restaurant Group now has 18 upscale establishments across the country in Ohio, Indiana, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Florida. In addition to Hyde Park Prime Steakhouse, the company operates Jekyll’s Kitchen, eleven at Hyde Park, ML Tavern and Black Point Prime Steak & Seafood.
