​​​​The Butcher's Block began building its reputation 49 years ago for incomparable steaks.  Stan McGowan established the store when he came to Sarasota from Ohio in 1967.  Stan is now semi-retired, and Scott McGowan has taken over ownership.  

The McGowan family has over five generations of experience and expertise in the meat business.  
At The Butcher's Block, we offer a wide selection of Prime Meats, Gourmet Foods, Deli salads and World Class Wines from around the globe!​

Gin has been with the Butcher's Block for over a year. You can find Gin working with Mary in the deli and prepared foods section.

Lorie McGowan-Parker has been with the Butcher's Block since she was knee high to a grasshopper.  Lorie is the daughter of Stan and sister of Scott McGowan.  She is a pivotal part of the Butcher's Block team. Lorie manages the grocery and cheese line here at the BB.

Scott has worked at the BB since he was 14 years old, and is a very hands on owner.  He has a great knowledge of wines, and takes pride in offering quality products, and great customers service!

Glen has also been with the Butcher's Block for a year.  His specialty is cutting and hand trimming our quality meats.  Glen is also an accomplished chef, so feel free to ask him about cooking tips!!
