Yard House Restaurants
Steele Platt founded Yard House Restaurants in Orange County, CA in 1996 and served as its Chief Executive Officer until 2012 when he divested his interest to the Darden Restaurant Group. Steele created his first restaurant concepts called Kailua's at the Tivoli in Denver, CO. in 1985 and The Boiler Room in 1987 offering twenty beers on tap, classic rock music and great food. After moving from Denver to Southern California in the early 90's, Platt envisioned creating an American beer hall even bigger than The Boiler Room and thus the Yard House was born.  

Platt received the coveted 2003 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award (Orange County, CA) as well as the recipient of the 2005 Entrepreneur of the Year from the Orange County Business Journal. Platt is a 1982 graduate of University of Denver's School of Hotel & Restaurant Management.
