About the Pine Club
66 Years of Success
SIXTY-SIX YEARS OF FRIENDSHIPS ~ 1947-2013
Each of us at The Pine Club would like to thank you for allowing us to play a small role in the fabric of the Dayton community and the lives of your family and friends over the past 66 years.
The Pine Club that we know today is really the product of 66years of experiences, and the vision of countless wonderful customers.
We are grateful to be a part of your experiences here and pledge to continue to maintain the values and principles that you have come to expect from The Pine Club for the next 66 years.
The Pine Club opened in 1947 when Jim Sullivan purchased Lonnie's Bar on Brown Street in Dayton. 1954 saw Lloyd Meinzer purchase the restaurant, and in 1957 he added the south part of the dining room and doubled the size of the bar. To this day The Pine Club appears the same as it did at that time.
Dave Hulme bought The Pine Club in 1979 and has worked hard to maintain the heritage and principles of the restaurant while recognizing the need to adapt to the changing demands of it's customers. In this era of updating, consolidation and changes, The Pine Club remains focused on the ambiance and standards of over 60 years ago. However, while we are proud to remember our past, we continually search for new and better ways of providing the "unique dining experience" and "consistent value" our customers have come to expect for over a half century.
To be recognized as "One of the Great Steak Houses in the Country" and "A Landmark in Dayton" is testimony to our wonderful customers and an incentive for all of us at The Pine Club to maintain those principles and traditions that the restaurant has observed since 1947. The Pine Club is really the vision of hundreds of thousands of loyal customers cultivated over sixty years of experiences.
