When we first decided to open the restaurant, we had a vision. A vision of a restaurant and live music venue that focuses on three things: the best food, the best entertainment and the best customer service.

Growing up in the 80’s, like many, Ellie watched television sitcom Cheers during its long run. It was her love of this seminal television show that led her into the hospitality industry. Throughout the late 90’s and into 2000’s, Ellie worked at the Calgary Stampede as a floor manager, prior to being promoted as the manager for all of the licensed venues within the Stampede. It was there where she conceived the idea for Stonewalls.


Looking for a change of lifestyle, Ellie moved back to Ontario where her siblings were based. Conceived in 2009 and with the assistance of her brother, a location was found and extensive renovations began. The idea was to create a destination location for live entertainment, combined with high quality food and in an upscale casual atmosphere. Opened in 2010, Stonewalls has since developed a reputation for amazing live music, great food and top notch customer service.
