Was in town for a UD game and then over to the Pine Club. Quoted a 3 hour wait! Open store front on either side why haven't they expanded?

Off the top of my head, more overhead, more employees, pushing out more food means greater attention needs to be placed on quality control, etc. That, and the Univ. of Dayton purchased the building that housed the old sports therapy business just north of the Pine Club, if that is what you mean by one of the empty adjacent store fronts.

Looks like the only thing that is going to change is the name of the owners.

I always thought the Pine Club was pretty inexpensive, comparatively.

And pretty darn delicious. Glad to read there's a plan to keep the place going.

The Pine Club has always been about preserving it's old-school steakhouse character. It still has it's original woodwork so I doubt as long as Hulme is involved with the new owners, an expansion isn't anywhere on the agenda. I appreciate that sentiment, since they have so many long-term customers, who'd by-in-large wouldn't be thrilled with ANY major changes. "If it ain't broken, don't fix it!" Heck, it STILL doesn't even take credit cards. It's not just another Outback steakhouse.

If you can't get into the The Pine Club, check out the The Oakwood Club, just a little further to the south. Quite frankly, I usually prefer The OC vs. The PC. Great food, usually better, friendlier service,and you can get desert. I've had some excellent steaks in The OC. The OC can get crowded, too, but it's usually not as frenetic as The PC can get.

I'm originally from Dayton, but haven't lived there since graduating college. I've always wanted to go to both places. This past February (2019) I was coming into town with my family for my mom's funeral. I wanted to take everyone out to dinner. Tried to get reservations at OC 2 weeks in advance and the only time open (Saturday night early February) was 10:30 pm. We didn't want to eat that late. Asked about if we walked in and they said we'd have to wait till 10:30. Thought we'd take our chances on Pine Club. Got there when they opened, but there was already a long line. By the time we got to the front, there was a 3 hour wait. Nope. We went to Cheesecake Factory.

Sorry to hear that, but not too surprised, especially if your party size was larger than two and if for popular times of the week and, also, if there happened to be other events going on nearby, at the time. I usually don't have any problem with reservations for two at OC, if it's not for popular times. Usually, I can just walk in and be seated, with no reservation, BUT I try to go early, such as just a little before 5:00. The PC can fill up very fast as soon as the usual dinner time arrives (5:00 to 8:00pm) and you just never know when a special event or a group of folks visiting Dayton are in town. The PC is very popular with visitors to Dayton, with it's national reputation. I hope you have better fortune with either place in the future.
