Stone Crock Restaurant is Celebrating 45 Years and is now Open with a Revamped Menu and Dining Room


THURS-SUN 11:30-7:00 PM


The Fat Sparrow Group is proud to have re-opened the Stone Crock doors with revamped space and new menu this past October.

The date of the reopening coincides with the 45th anniversary of the St. Jacobs restaurant and follows several months of closure to the buffet and indoor dining areas because of the pandemic.

“As the saying goes, never waste the opportunity offered by a good crisis,” said Nick Benninger, Executive Chef and Co-Owner. “We have spent many nights discussing the best things about the Stone Crock, our place in the community, and how best to express our roots and unique regional cuisine.”

For obvious reasons, the buffet is no more.

This summer Stone Crock launched patio dining in their parking lot with a huge covered tent and regular barbecue cookouts.

Benninger says, “The patio has been a great success and we recently added heaters to the patio to keep customers’ cozy. As we head into the colder season it was also time to re-imagine our indoor space and atmosphere.”

The new menu will honour Waterloo region’s heritage, farmland, local producers, and connection to Oktoberfest. It will feature our own interpretations of traditional German and Swiss favourites, with imaginative twists on all our comfort favourites. In the words of Edna Staelber: “Food that really schmecks!” 🍻 Prost!

Stone Crock has been awarded a #SafeTravels Stamp by @WTTC for adopting health and hygiene global standardized protocols.
