It has been a while since our doors were open and so very much has changed. What started out as a rush to rebuild after the fire turned into a massive undertaking, a complete rebuild of the Pantry inside and out. Aside from the physical, we spent the past few years re-thinking everything about our business and we are proud to share the result with you.
As you will see our menu has evolved and while we have kept much of our most popular items we believe we have brought things to an entirely new level. Our goal was simply to focus on making fewer items, better, using only the very best ingredients. Throughout the menu you will see that we have chosen quality over quantity and vow to only give our staff the best raw ingredients and tools that they need to create all that you desire.
One of the goals of the new Pantry was to find a way to provide a better working environment for all of our employees. By eliminating tipping we have given our staff a stable, consistent income that they can count on day after day and week after week. We truly believe that it will create a better working environment for everyone and that improved service will be one of the benefits of it. We place high expectations on ourselves and our team as we always have and expect excellence as the norm, not the exception. Our promise to you is that our team will continually work together to give you the best total service that we possibly can. Simply put, we work as one.
A little history...
Our family has been directly involved in Pantry since 1949. What started out as a “dining car” style diner with seating of about forty, the diner has evolved into the restaurant that it is today with a capacity of over 200 people. Through two expansions and numerous expansions including this most recent one, the Pantry has continued its proud tradition of being a place for family and friends to meet and spend a little quality time together.
We’ve seen many beautiful times shared in our restaurant, from bridal to baby showers, birthdays to anniversaries, and first dates to engagements. We’ve even closed and rented out the entire restaurant for surprise parties where people could spend the most important times of their lives with friends and loved ones.
Celebrating now our 69th year in business, our family continues the traditions of the business while constantly pushing the boundaries of what a diner traditionally is and what it could be. This latest transformation is perhaps our boldest yet but we are extremely proud of what we have done. While the looks may have changed and the menu rethought, at heart, the Pantry remains the same as ever.
One more thing…
As always, we do our very best to accommodate all of your dining wishes. While some of your favorite items may be missing from the newest incarnation of our menu, when possible we will try to accommodate your choices. We also are very sensitive to food allergies and dietary restrictions. We can not, however, guarantee a gluten free or nut allergy free environment and that all of our raw ingredients were produced in such facilities. Please do let us know in advance if you are affected by such things.
