York Steak House was a national chain of restaurants in the US, popular in the late 1970s and early 1980s. The restaurants were generally located in shopping malls, and were cafeteria-style, specializing in steaks and potatoes. The decor, with its dim lighting, heavy wooden furniture, and iron chandeliers, was meant to evoke Medieval England, and presumably the restaurant's name was derived from the House of York. The chain, along with the majority of its locations, was shut down in 1989, but a few franchised locations continue to operate as independent restaurants even to this day. The chain was owned by the cereal manufacturer General Mills, which owned quite a few restaurant chains in the 1970s, such as the equally ill-fated Betty Crocker's Tree House, The Good Earth, and GuadalaHarry's.
