McLains Family Steak House was established in 1996 by Al and Faye McLain and Roger Leatherberry. Al was a retired restauranteur from Crestview, Florida where he and Roger were competitors in the restaurant industry. A strong friendship was establish and when Al grew tired of retirement they went into business to purchase a restaurant in DeFuniak Springs Florida. Al and Faye Mclain owned and operated the restaurant until 1998 when Roger Leatherberry purchased it from them. Remaining a family owned and operated business for 15 years has been a blessing.
