This place is trading on its past reputation. The tables & floor are sticky, menu options & food are industrial, and their "signature" pies have commercial crusts, taste like they were thawed & served, lack flavor. Mass-produced blah. Ick.

I've eaten at The Pantry and liked it each time. I ordered the chicken salad sandwich with chips. While it wasn't the best I've ever eaten, it was good and hit the spot. I just wish the chairs were more comfortable.
