Our Family Story
Our restaurant got its start in 1968 when Bunt King came home and announced to his wife Helen that he had found the perfect location for a steak house. Much discussion of the pros and cons of opening a family restaurant filled the home until they finally decided to take the chance. Thus, Ye Olde Steak House began when friends and family pulled together to help create a friendly, rustic, down-home atmosphere that still exists today. Over four decades, Ye Olde Steak House is still owned and operated by the King family. Bunt passed away in 1987, and Helen in 2003; now their three children - Nancy, Cheryl, and David - continue their family tradition. Even some of the grandchildren help out when possible. Thanks to our wonderful customers over 40 years, the dream has become a reality, and we hope to serve 'steaks cooked to perfection' for many years to come.
