CLOSE

CLEVELAND — One of Public Square’s historic restaurants is closing its doors after serving Clevelanders for decades.

John Q’s Steakhouse will close on June 15, owner Rick Cassara told Fox 8 News Thursday morning.

Cassara said shutting the restaurant down was a “business decision,” and that it was a sad day for his many longtime employees.

“It’s our time,” he said.

According to the restaurant’s website, John Q’s opened as one of the key Stouffers Restaurants from 1959-1979 and later emerged as John Q’s Public Bar & Grille. In 1987,  the name was changed to John Q’s Steakhouse.
