In 1989, Steve Svrga, who is a life long Euclid resident, business owner and St. Joseph high school grad, decided that his community needed a place "where good friends meet". He then opened the Tap House Bar & Grill on East 222nd St and established a neighborhood bar with good food & service. This is where our famous "Dry Rubbed" wing recipe was developed that we all know and love. After pursuing other ventures, he decided to get back his passion for the bar business and purchased the Paradise in 2011. Again, he envisioned Euclid to have a place with excellent food at a remarkable value, live entertainment with some of the bands that played the Tap House, free Valet Parking, and Sunday Brunch to his community.
In 2012, he brought in Executive Chef James Foreman, whom had 27 years of restaurant and catering business experience. James was also born and raised in Euclid, graduated from Euclid and was excited to return to his neighborhood to take control of daily operations. Together, they began to offer a variety of new menu items using local produce, fresh ingredients, new and exciting offerings of entertainment, and unique events to our customers.
Besides our "Famous Wings", customers recognize our other menu and drink options for our quality and value. It's the combination of a strong menu and excellent staff that bring everything together. We appreciate all of our loyal customers, past and present.
We hope you will continue to come relax, eat well, and join in the fun here at Paradise Island Saloon!
