Our Story

Our Story

     In 2016, Steak Club started as a table for six at a restaurant on the east side of Cleveland with no purpose at all besides getting together to catch up over lost time.  After a few dinners, the table size grew to where we had our first private room and first taste of the wonders of a Wagyu steak.  Following that meal, one of the guys asked a simple yet profound question, “Will Steak Club buy a table at my charity event?” The answer was yes, and the Steak Club Foundation was formed. 


     Today, we keep the same formula as the first dinner: get great people together over a fantastic meal and amazing things happen!  We thrive on supporting our members through making meaningful connections for business or pleasure, but also by putting our network to work in supporting the causes that are closest to our members’ hearts. 


Relationships, Food, and Philanthropy... join us at the table to learn more.
