We are open and are utilizing the entire space of our restaurant for our guests. We have three dining areas totaling almost 4000 square feet to provide plenty of safe spacing for our guests. Please understand as we are operating at a reduced capacity we are limiting reservations to two hours.

We consider ourselves a New American diner where you can enjoy American classics with modern twists in a gorgeous atmosphere. We have rethought the traditional diner menu and elevated it to an entire new level. We offer wild caught seafood, angus meats, all natural chicken, cage free eggs and only the best ingredients. You can and will taste the difference.

Compliment your meal with anything from our full bar and we can accommodate large parties in one of our dining rooms. The atmosphere is modern yet comfortable and a perfect place to laugh with family and friends.

The Back Room at Pantry can hold events up to 50 people at this time due to COVID restrictions. Please email or call for details.

Second time having brunch here and the Bennys are amazing! And the home fries are crispy cubes of deliciousness. We also loved the Bellinis, Mermaid Mimosas and Coconut Mimosas ... will try more the next time!

My family enjoyed our meal at Pantry. However it was quite noisy and hard to hear across the table. The food was generally good. My waffle was inventive and excellent. Egg white omelette was on the small side. Waitress took a long time to settle the bill.

Came her for brunch with my husband. It was his first time. He is not a fan of Chicken and Waffles but I got him to try their Chicken and Waffles and he devoured it. Not only did he love it but as soon as he got home he warmed up the left overs that he intended to have for dinner!! I like how this place is structured with reservations. Very efficient.

Took the family out for dinner and had a great time. The food was delicious. The waitress, I want to say her name was Alicia, was excellent. Friendly and efficient. Our baby kept fussing but the servers were great about keeping the food coming. We will be back :)

Today was my son’s 15th birthday. We’ve been to the Pantry Diner many times before and have been happy sigh our experiences except for one time when they overcooked my prime rib on the outside and ice cold on the inside. They took it away and I believe they planned to reheat the same food. That did not work out. They ended up remaking the entire meal.

I really wanted to give my review a 5 star rating today. However, for a party of 6, we were placed in their paddy room and was seated in the corner in a small rectangular table. There wasn’t a lot of elbow room. The server came and didn’t introduce herself. No specials were read. We were asked our drinks order. My youngest ordered a fresh glass of juice. It was served cold. We ordered an appetizer. It was on its way to us but then suddenly rerouted towards the bar. The server was apologetic as she told us she is having a new one made. We had been waiting over 25 min by then. When our food came, it was not placed haphazardly. The condiments that came with one of the meals was given to the person with a different order. Again there was an issue with cooking the meal medium rare. It was beyond well done. My son who hardly ever complains said he couldn’t eat it. They remade the order but no asparagus. Oh well. My son was happy. The reason why I wanted to give them 5 stars was because they wrote my son’s name on the plate that had a slice of cheesecake with 3 candles symbolizing past, present and future, just as I requested when I booked the reservation. If only one of the staff (busses) that came to sing the birthday song wasn’t carrying the cleaning solution that he uses to clean the tables. If only.

Great Sunday Brunch spot with 2 for 1 drink special! Food was delicious with a lot of options. Only negative notable is the wait was a bit long for drinks and waiting for the check which might have been because it was very busy. Overall great experience. Would go again!

It was a great meal! Drinks too very long. We didn’t get the second drink that we ordered after appetizers and way before dinner however we didn’t receive them until we were finished eating. I know it was crowded but they need to get drinks out faster. Overall a great experience and will definitely be back!

Not a "regular" diner. Upscale food but relatively small portions. I thought the higher prices were because it is a no tipping restaurant . That is how they advertised themselves when originally opened and that is what is on their website, but there was tip percentage suggestions on the bill as well as an area to write in the tip. Definitely felt rushed by the servers and there was no social distancing in the restaurant. Every table was taken. Nothing was marked off. People were crowded together in the vestibule to enter.

We came here to have Mother's Day brunch. Made a reservation for 12 about 3 weeks in advance and glad I did! As walk in we're coming in, depending on the group size, they were being given a wait time of 1 hour up to 3 hours. After checking in for our reservation, I was told it would be a couple minutes before we were seated. 20 minutes passed and we were finally seated. (Knocking off 1 star for the long wait on a reservation. The hostess told me they were overbooked which I personally feel like establishments have an obligation to be cognizant of especially if they have a "strict" 5 minute late policy.)

Once we were seated, the server came around pretty promptly to take out orders. I ordered the brunch burger (subbed Turkey bacon for Canadian bacon) and fries with a white Sangria. My mom got the creme brûlée French toast with sunny side eggs and bacon and also got the white Sangria.

The sangria itself ... it's just wine with seasonal fruit in it. Nothing particularly reminiscent of a sangria but the brunch special includes one drink so that's something to take into consideration.

The burger and French toast were both good. The waitress asked for a temperature for the burger and I asked for medium but it came to me well done. Which, not an issue but if that's something being asked for it's just something to be mindful of.

The bill took a while to come which explains why we took so long to be seated.

Overall pretty pleasant experience.

Don’t be fooled by the exterior diner facade, the interior is very modern and spacious and the food & drinks are great! We made reservations for Mother’s Day and it was seamless. The hostesses were welcoming & friendly, we were seated right away. Even though it was very busy our food and service were attentive & timely. We were in and out in just over an hour.

Went here based on positive reviews-
I eat out a lot- i review most of the places i go to on this app-
My first observation was that the menu is fairly extensive-
Just like a diner- my second observation was the look of the place is more upscale than a regular diner

Now for the food- food is avg- food is diner food-
Prices however are not- they are high for the quality
And portions

Do not be fooled- this is a diner dressed up as a higher scale
Restaurant- it is not- it is a facade-you will pay upscale prices for what they serve- you can do better price wise
And quality wise at many diners

Disappointing meal due to poor service and slow kitchen. Dinner took over an hour to come out of kitchen. The food quality here is really good, however establishment should have done something to compensate for slow service. If it wasn't for the very capable busser, the service would have been hideous. Will give them another chance.
