“Not Worth the Drive”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

We ate here after seeing a play. The salad bar was very plain, the buffet food was not very good in that it lacked flavour (ie how can you ruin scalloped potatoes). The deserts had a lot of selection but nothing to rave about. Our server was very nice but when we went to pay ...
the credit card machine only gives you 4 options for a tip: 15% / 20% / 25% and Other Amount. I found this quit presumptuous, especially for a buffet dinner where you serve yourself.
I've had much better food at a truck stop.

“Try the pies”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

This is truly a Mennonite atmosphere . Lots of good wholesome foods like roast chicken and turkey, lots of gravy if you want great good potato and cabbage salads, just like Grandma use to make , and best of all the many pies to finish. While there you can wonder the streets for other good buys.

“Now what it used to be.”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

The Stone Crock has had a reputation for many years of serving quality and ample Waterloo County fare however in recent years the quality has gone way down. Sadly, it is nothing special these days.
