Pantry Restaurant, The45466 West Yale Road, Chilliwack
Relaxing Family Outing
Submitted Sunday, August 21, 2011 - 8:14pm [Dine in]

We went for a mini staycation out to Chilliwack and went to this restaurant located in our hotel. I took the wife and kids because we saw there was a weekday special where kids eat free. We were promptly seated by a nice waitress. I had the Clubhouse sandwich. It came out absolutely perfect with juicy, hot pieces of Turkey and bacon. My wife ordered a BBQ bacon burger and it came stacked with juicy burger, bbq sauce,bacon and even a onion ring all on a soft toasted bun. She loved it and couldn't finish it so i had to help her out of course and i wouldn't complain about any part of it. The kids had the cheesy pasta alfredo and they loved every bite. It looked really cheesy and piping hot so they had to wait a minute for it to cool down but loved it nonetheless. Definately a place you'll want to check out.

Change is good
Submitted Thursday, April 7, 2011 - 7:15pm [Dine in]

We used to get this delivered on a regular basis when we lived in North Van. Since moving out to the tri-cities our encounters have been either delivery or pick up when having dinner at friends or family. My wife and I decided to take our chances eating in which we stopped doing years ago due to the horrible service. We were astonished at the change there that night. The inside had been renovated from our last visit and made it more open and less den like. We sat down and asked for a piece of garlic bread to keep the kids happy until food arrived. I ordered the drink special (double long island) and boy was it a double. Caesar to start was good. The Pizza and Lasagne is still the same old goodness however we were very surprised in the change of service. Our waitress was attentive without being annoying and even offered us some ranch dressing to dip pizza in without us even asking. When we got our bill it came with the biggest loaf of bread i have ever seen for us to take home. I'm not sure if the ownership has changed or we lucked out and got a great server but whatever the change it was a welcome one and made our family dinner a nice night out.

Lives up to our high expectations

My wife and I decided to check out this new place for our anniversary.We went solely based on previous reviews here and we were not disappointed. We reserved our table and even though the place was not packed they had a reserved sign on the table which was a nice touch. We started with the poutine and it is hands down the best poutine we've ever had, including some that we tried in Montreal. The poutine came piping hot with hand cut fries and every forkful was loaded with gravy and cheese but still retained it's heat until the last bite. I had the hot turkey sandwich with soup of the day (it was some kind of carrot soup). It was so delicious it reminded me of the day after Thanksgiving at my parents when they made dinner out of the leftovers. The bread was so fresh yet didn't become soggy and disappear under the gravy, absolutely perfect and melt in your mouth good!! I would highly recommend if you want some true comfort food. My wife had the Teriyaki chicken burger with Caesar salad. She thought that the burger was excellent but she was raving about the Caesar salad. She said that it is one of the best one she's tried and ranks right next to the Keg. How can you beat that? Our drinks were promptly served and refilled as needed. We met the owner and chef Dean. He was a very personable man who exudes a jovial attitude. The waitress working was very friendly and nice as well. It was the first time we've gone out without the kids in about a year and we will definitely be repeat customers and will actually bring the kids next time as we were told that the establishment gladly accepts kids. Overall our food and service was amazing, the ambiance has a nice cafe feel and is sure to be busy as word gets out about this hidden secret in Maple Ridge.

Love found on Valentine's day
Submitted Saturday, February 14, 2009 - 10:58pm [Dine in]

I took my wife and daughter here for Valentine's because it had both Canadian and Chinese food which would please all 3 of us. We ordered some Egg Rolls and Wonton soup as appetizers. When I first saw the Egg Rolls I was amazed at what I saw. They arrived looking like the grease bullets I loved when I was a teenager. They were so crispy on the outside and so delicious on the inside that I fell in love and immediately ordered another one! They are the best I've had since most places I've been to serve spring rolls instead of the big Egg Rolls. My wife's Won ton soup was alright. The broth needed a little more flavour but the rest of the soup was good. My daughter ordered a grilled cheese for $2.75 and she loved it as most 4 year olds would. My wife ordered a mushroom cheese burger for $3.00 and a side of fries for $1.75 with gravy for $1.00 for everyone to share. Both the burger and the fries were good and the gravy was beefy and semi-thick. I ordered the mushroom Egg Foo yong and it was good. By no means was it the best I've had but it was quite tasty. The whole meal with an extra Egg Roll to go came to $23 with tax. When the waitress brought our bill she also brought 2 free long stem roses for the 2 ladies at my table which made my daughter's year. There was also a reasonably priced chinese food buffet that looked pretty appetizing as well. Overall we will frequent this restaurant again multiple times in the future as long as they continue to have my new love ( Egg Rolls) available.

This restaurant location has had it's fair share of changes over the years. I think a lot of that is the placement of the restaurant. It sits on a slower street in Edgemont village between a Petro Canada and a dry cleaner. It has always remained an Asian type establishment. It is now a Chinese restaurant. I've ordered for home delivery from here on many occasions and they never fail to disappoint. I took my wife and daughter here a month or so ago and now frequent it about once a week. It has amazingly cheap offerings of Dim Sum starting at $2.80 and Lunch specials starting at $3.99. We tried a few lunch specials on our last visit. I highly recommend the deep fried tofu with salt and Pepper. It arrives piping hot with red chilli's adorning every piece. Mmm... I'm in love now. The Won-ton soup has a tasty broth that we actually liked. Usually all we eat is the won tons. The spring rolls are amazing and not even really greasy. The owner/cook/server was so polite and attentive. They appear to do the majority of their business with the delivery crowd so a table is practically guaranteed. Definitely worth the travel to go here!

My wife went here for dinner with one of her friends the other day. The following is her review of the place. I arrived earlier than my friend and I was promptly served by a hostess/waitress. She was very smiley and energetic. When my friend arrived 5 minutes later we were served by our waitress who was different than the first person I encountered. I ordered a cup of the tortilla soup and was actually quite looking forward to it, however it never arrived:( We both ordered the pesto chicken sandwich with Caesar salad. The sandwich was good however it was really very small and did little to actually fill us up. The Caesar salad on the side was crouton free and lacked taste. Our waitress appeared disinterested and frankly forgot about us. She may have just been having an off day because the first waitress/hostess was actually really nice. I would give this another try in the future but I might be inclined to try something a little more filling and tasty. Stay tuned

Ok, so I took my wife and daughter here once a little while ago and it was pretty good but we decided to stop by there the other day when we were in the neighbourhood. We snagged a parking spot just outside the restaurant so I knew our experience was already going to be "Nice". Found a booth easily and decided to try some sandwiches. My daughter had a grilled cheese that is bound to make any kid happy with the melting REAL cheese oozing everywhere. My wife had a beef dip and the meat was so succulent I just had to steal a bite. She loved the fries and the gravy she ordered with it, was thick and beefy. I decided on trying the Reuben. Now you have to understand I had the best Reuben of my life on a trip to Washington DC years ago and have yet to find one that compares. My first bite melted in my mouth and so did every bite after it. It was absolutely amazing! They definately give DC a run for their money. I had the hashbrowns again and they did not fail to live up to their 5 star status. All in all it was another great experience. Mmmm actually now that I'm thinking about it I'm craving some now! See you there!!!

Servers please take note
Submitted Sunday, July 20, 2008 - 9:34pm [Dine in]

I took my wife and 4 year old daughter out for a nice dinner. We've gone to this restaurant a few times over the last few years. The service has always been hit and miss but they have really taken huge strides to improve this lately. Our last few times there our service has been decent but after the service we received last night I had to come on here and write a review. We were seated within seconds of walking in. Menu selection is as expected with prime rib, chicken and a good variety of children's selections. The headliner for me was the endless varieties of steaks. After perusing and changing my mind numerous times. I decided to have the baseball steak(medium rare). I must say this was the BEST steak I have had in a long time. I reminisced of backyard barbeques with my late father and I enjoyed every second of it. Our server was perfectly attentive and kept an eye on us without us knowing. Drinks were promptly replenished by our fabulous server. She was very knowledgeable and had a genuine smile on her face. I think she might actually like working there! The atmosphere is perfect for parents seeking a "Fancy" dinner where the children won't bother the other patrons. Music was playing in the background with a distinctive buzz from all of the servers. I must say that we really and truly enjoyed our experience and I wish I had gotten our servers name because she deserves and A+++.

Father's Day Disaster
Submitted Sunday, June 15, 2008 - 3:51pm [Dine in]

We decided to visit this place for breakfast on Father's Day. We went in a group of 6+1 child. We arrived and the wait of 10 minutes for a table was reasonable. We sat down and were promptly offered beverages. We placed our orders shortly after and we SAW the waitress right the orders down properly so we figured we were going to be different then the other reviews on here. Boy were we in for a surprise. Coffee refills were prompt the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th time all before I food arrived. Food finally came around 40 minutes after we ordered. My Father-in-Law mentioned that it seemed to be taking a long time and a waitress came over and very rudely pointed out that we had a HUGE order and that was why it was taking so long. Oh Thank-you for stating the obvious. The 3 men in our group on Father's day all got their orders delivered wrong. One order had bacon forgotten and toast that came 12 minutes later, one order had eggs prepared wrong, and my order was simple,I ordered a Classic Benny and I received a BC Benny. Um HELLO, I didn't even see a BC Benny on the menu. Instead of the Ham with the classic I received Bacon and processed cheese. Good but not what I ordered. A different waitress came over and offered to remake my breakfast however I didn't want to wait another 40 minutes for the right meal. Just a little side note to all the restaurants out there. If you would like children to behave please feel free to ensure that their order is brought out first and not absolutely last. Overall I found this experience to be frustrating and will NOT frequent this establishment in the future. Just goes to show that these reviews are VERY accurate.

Cheers Restaurant125 E 2nd Street, North Vancouver
Cheerful encounters
Submitted Thursday, June 12, 2008 - 1:54am [Dine in]

This family friendly-restaurant also caters hence the name. Upon entering it looks like a regular family restaurant, however I must say the booths are my favourite place to sit. Owners are a married couple who themselves strive to provide great customer service however their wait staff fall short of their examples. Perfect service for me is to be offered a refill on my water glass which Cheers does sometimes fall short of. All I ask is for the wait staff to be paying attention to the details! Best value hands down on their BLT Mozza burger special. You can't beat an awesome, big burger oozing mozza, crispy bacon and crispy fries(ask for them crispy WAY better)for only $5.99 including soda or iced tea. Gravy is actually awesome for dipping of fries, thick and coating as it should be. Kid friendly chicken strips are also a value at $3.99 for meal,drink, and ice cream. Buffet specials on weekends, sandwiches and full meals rouond out the menu. Try it once and you'll crave it forever.
