Why Did the Lahood Park Steakhouse Close?
On the morning of September 30, 2021, the steakhouse was consumed by fire. Members of the Cardwell community and longtime patrons of the Lahood Park Steakhouse were devastated. Initially, owner Phil Lalich wasn't planning to rebuild, but after an outpouring of support from loyal customers, he decided to change his mind.
Lalich is a Montana native and took ownership of LaHood Park Steakhouse in 2017 after spending the past 45 years in the cattle industry, both operating his own ranch as well as buying and selling bulls.
