About Stone House Restaurant
Stone House is an inviting neighborhood restaurant that delivers on the foundation of serving up Genuine Food & Drinks, Service & Hospitality.
Our name speaks to the original Stone House that was built in the 1940’s and has stood the test of time. The home is the inspiration for creating a foundation of a warm and inviting dining experience for guests to come enjoy, frequent and share life's moments.
Chef Andrew prepares regionally inspired cuisine of craveable comfort foods & locally sourced proteins and vegetables from our chef's garden featured in the peak of their season. Whether socializing over some Stone House sharables with friends while sipping a beverage from our craft beer & cocktails or carving into one of our 1200-degree broiled steaks or chops and a bottle of wine over dinner - let Stone House build on your life's dining experiences whatever the occasion.
With over a decade in professional kitchens, Chef Andrew Zempke takes a modern, yet familiar, approach to cooking. His love for cooking came later in life when he made the switch from food running to the kitchen, at a fast-food restaurant all those years ago. Immediately falling in love with the intensity and creativity of the kitchen, he knew that he had found where he wanted to be.
After making the move into a more upscale, hotel kitchen, he realized that food is so much more than just something you eat; it’s an expression. He then moved around the hotel industry as well as spending many years in scratch kitchens before settling down at Stone House.
Largely inspired by Texas-style barbecue and Mexican street food, Chef Andrew always brings a fun blend of simplicity and excitement to the plate, in ways that keep diners eager for what’s next.
A native of Akron, Ohio, Chef Andrew likes to spend his free time watching sports, barbecuing, and spending time with his wife and their dogs.
A seasoned restaurant operator, Greg Kalina brings his unwavering commitment to service and hospitality to Stone House. After four years honing his customer service skills, he made the move into management and began his impressive restaurant career.
Greg left his position as Assistant General Manager of Cool River Las Colinas to pursue his dream with some of the most highly regarded restaurateurs in the DFW dining scene today. He joined the Del Frisco’s Restaurant Group in 2006 and received numerous awards over his eleven-and-a-half-years as General Manager of Del Frisco’s Fort Worth before elevating to the position of Regional Director.
He has a passion for community involvement, including serving as Chairman of the Board for a Wish with Wings, the executive committee of the Fort Worth Stock Show Syndicate, board member for the Bobby Bragan Youth Foundation, and initiated a signature annual fundraiser for One Safe Place.
He enjoys spending free time with his family, including his wife and three children. Greg understands that the discriminating diner has choices and embraces the details that make a visit not just a meal, but an experience.
Paul Pardo and his wife, Lisa, are very excited to bring a new dining experience to their hometown and the surrounding communities. Paul & Lisa’s last adventure was Coal Vines Pizza and Wine Bar in Southlake. Prior to Coal Vines, Paul owned and co-owned several restaurants in the San Antonio area before moving to Fort Worth then Colleyville, 10 years ago. Lisa has called Colleyville home for the past 30 years. After selling Coal Vines, the Pardo’s thought they would enjoy the retired life, however, the beautiful stone house on the corner of Colleyville Blvd. and Thompson Terrace kept calling their names each time they would drive by. “We wanted to bring something unique to the city. A place with great food, great service and a great atmosphere.” Stone House Restaurant strives to do that and more.
