Slick’s Ivy Stone Restaurant in Osterburg, Pennsylvania originally opened in 1925 as Jack’s Place, a small gas station and diner along the busy Route 220. The original owner was George A. “Jack” Croyle. The original gas station burnt down and was reconstructed. If you look around, you can still see part of the original structure in our inner lobby.
Some years later, the gas station was closed and the restaurant was purchased by Bertha Chilcoat and known as “Chilcoat’s.”
In 1964, Edward and Florence Pukala bought the restaurant. Their family named the restaurant “The Ivy Stone” after a restaurant in Pennsauken, New Jersey.
Our family, the Slick’s bought the restaurant in 1979 and changed the name to “Slick’s Ivy Stone.” We opened with two dining rooms. The bathrooms were on the outside of the building. Soon after we added on the large indoor restrooms and a large waiting area full of things from yesteryear. Followed by the addition of the Heritage Room in the 80’s and a large prep kitchen. In 90’s, the Elizabeth Room was built on the back of restaurant, almost doubling our seating capacity.
Today we have seating for 240 guests. We can accommodate parties from 10 to 200. Slick’s has become known to all as a place to bring the family, share your memories of the past, and enjoy a homemade meal served by quaintly attired servers. We invite you to join us and see what makes our restaurant truly unique!
Slick’s Ivy Stone Restaurant features seating for 240 customers in five dining rooms. See our banquets page for more information.
