Craft beer hotspot opens another location in region

Oak & Stone now has five locations from Naples to St. Petersburg.

NAPLES — Oak & Stone, known for its high-tech, self-serve beer wall, has opened its fifth location, this one in Naples. In addition to craft beer, Oak & Stone also features artisanal pizza and gourmet fare.

The Naples Oak & Stone opened Feb. 3 at 2270 Logan Blvd. N. at Logan Landings, a retail center anchored by Sprouts. The location boasts a 5,300-square-foot standalone restaurant with a 1,600-square-foot outdoor patio for pet-friendly al fresco dining, according to a statement.

“Our team is thrilled to open the newest Oak & Stone in the thriving Naples area,” says Oak & Stone co-owner Joe Seidensticker in the statement. Seidensticker founded Oak & Stone with Brett Decklever. “This was the ideal location for Oak & Stone, with plenty of parking and easy access right off Immokalee Road. We hope the craft beer buffs and food aficionados of Naples love it as much as we do.”

With a mix of bar stools, lounge seats and high-top tables for a capacity of 100 indoors, the Naples Oak & Stone features an 18-seat bar with bourbons on display, large windows and other notable natural elements of brick, wood and concrete flooring, the release states. A massive booth sits in the middle of the room to accommodate large parties.

The outdoor open-air space, meanwhile, incorporates several seating areas, including a couch area with a fire pit, low-top and high-top tables with umbrellas, a round chef’s table and stools at the outdoor bar for a capacity of 120.

Utilizing RFID technology, Oak & Stone’s signature, self-serve beer wall allows visitors to sample nearly 50 rotating varieties of ciders and American craft beers on tap, with a special emphasis on local and regional breweries. The list, the release states, includes Bone Hook Brewing, Fort Myers Brewing, Momentum Brewhouse and Palm City Brewing, among others.

“We created this concept around football, food, family and beer,” said co-owner Decklever in the statement. “At the heart of Oak & Stone is its laid back and casual but welcoming atmosphere for people of all ages. It’s a place suitable for a boys’ night, date night, a family dinner or to unwind with friends while grabbing a drink during happy hour.”

Since first opening in University Park in 2016, Oak & Stone has expanded its reach to St. Petersburg, with its second location opening in summer 2018. Last year, Oak & Stone opened a third site in Sarasota and fourth restaurant with rooftop bar in downtown Bradenton. Construction on the Naples eatery began in fall 2019 by Poppa Construction.
