Jack Strode

Owner/General Manager Jack Strode

Jack Strode is a Chicago restaurant management veteran, and the third generation of his family to grow up playing along the sandy shores of Miller Beach and the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore.

With management successes such as Smith and Wollensky, Rosebud Prime and the Cheesecake Factory in Chicago, Jack and his family saw a unique opportunity to bring an important historic building and long-time dining favorite back to life when the Miller Bakery Café fell into foreclosure.

Jack’s commitment to excellent service and his family’s generational dedication to the South Shore communities of Indiana, Illinois and Michigan have culminated in a labor of love to introduce the next generation of the Miller Bakery Café in the historic Miller Bakery building.
