Lake Ann's Stone Oven Restaurant Expanding

By Beth Milligan | Sept. 7, 2017

Lake Ann's The Stone Oven is expanding - a move that will more than double the size of the First Street restaurant.

According to co-owner Brian Adams, the company is midway through renovations to expand dining and kitchen space in the eatery. "The building is only 600 square feet, so we ran out of room a couple years ago," says Adams. "We've just been making it work as we took time to save enough money to get everything done. We're adding more than 900 square feet, so we're a little more than doubling in size."

Stone Oven has done particularly brisk sales in to-go business, according to Adams, with the restaurant converting its current dining area into a dedicated to-go area as part of the expansion. Dining seating will also expand, from 22 to 40-45 seats, Adams says.

"We'll be open (through renovations), although we'll probably close for a week or so to reorganize right at the end when it gets done," Adams says. "We're hoping to be finished before Thanksgiving."
