"the greatest dishes are very simple." -Escoffier

Crystal McKone, Chef/Owner


After graduating from The University of Alabama, Crystal decided to further her life experience, and move to New York City. It was at that time that Crystal realized her passion for the Culinary Arts. It was actually a passion that was there all along, from playing restaurant as a child to asking her mother to buy caviar at the grocery store.


While in Manhattan, Crystal obtained a degree in Culinary Arts from The French Culinary Institute, now known as The International Culinary Center. While in school, she worked as a server and bartender at a few NYC establishments. Upon graduation, Crystal moved to Atlanta to hone her newly acquired skills.


While in Atlanta, she worked at several notable restaurants, including, Tom Colicchio's Craft Atlanta, The St. Regis Hotel and Buttermilk Kitchen. 

After having worked in every facet of the hospitality industry, an opportunity for ownership presented itself and she took it. She moved back to Marshall County, and began working on the new concept. Old Town Stock House was born. She is excited to share her handcrafted creations with you.
