Steakhouse 85 staff support

For the past 12 years Steakhouse 85 has been growing a family of employees as well as an extended family of guests.  Our staff has been and always will be the backbone of what makes us proud to be your favorite restaurant.  Our employees have always taken a lot of pride in taking care of our guests.  We have been together for birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, proposals, you name it.

As we navigate these un-chartered waters, we are faced with sending many wonderful, sincere, hardworking people home without the promise a paycheck next week.  Many of these employees have become friends of yours and ours over the years.  We have watched their families grow, purchase homes and build their lives, all while taking care of the needs our guests.  While the abrupt closure of the restaurant has devastated us, the impact to our employees and their families is unthinkable.

Many of you have reached out to us offering to help our people who have brightened your day over the years.  To assist those requests, we have opened a GofundMe account expressly for the employees of Steakhouse 85.  We deeply appreciate your support over the years, proud to be part of this community and call you our friends.  We truly look forward to seeing you again.  Until then, please help in any way you can.
