PINE GROVE MILLS, Pa.—Did someone say “casual fare”?
Beginning Wednesday, May 11, Pine Grove Hall will be offering a new casual fare menu on Wednesday and Sunday nights rather than its typical dinner menu, according to Liz Grove, proprietor.
New menu offerings will include items like Stuffed Piquillo Peppers ($11), Cod Croquettes ($11) and Fried Smelt ($12), to name just a few. (The usual dinner menu will not be offered on Wednesdays and Sundays.) The menu will be paired with the live entertainment experience that Pine Grove Hall has, from its inception, sought to offer the community.
“It’s just as important to have these more casual moments at Pine Grove Hall,” said Grove. “From the beginning, we’ve said that we are ‘an upscale casual restaurant and bar with an emphasis on live music and a locally-sourced menu.’ We launched the fine dining experience, now we are ready to emphasize a more casual experience.”
To go with the feel of Sundays and Wednesdays, look for more talent to take the stage as well. Grove emphasized that the PGH philosophy has always centered on community and inclusivity, to which great food and a variety of entertainment lend themselves so well.
Look for touring bands on Wednesday evenings at 7 p.m., beginning with Texas-based singer/songwriter Mike Stinson at the end of the month.
Wednesdays at 7pm:
May 11 - Ken Baxter with Molly Countermine “stories & songs”
May 18 - Nate Custshall, singer-songwriter
May 25 - Mike Stinson, Texas-based singer-songwriter
Sundays at 6 pm:
May 15 – Natty Lou Race and Dan Collins, singer-songwriter
May 29 – Jerry Zolten, roots & blues

The menu additions will be ongoing, added Grove, and will rotate every eight weeks.
“We wanted to offer menus that come from a shared-eating culture,” explained Executive Chef Tory Glossner. “Not ‘shared’ in the sense of physically sharing one big plate; rather, shared in the experience of eating it.
Having an exceptional team in the kitchen, added Glossner, will continue to allow them to flex the menu a bit while staying true to local sourcing.
To that end, look for Tapas style, Cuban food, Korean, English Pub, and Japanese menu influences in the coming months. The offerings will be matched to the local seasons and will tie in with the cocktails, beer and wine menus, explained the executive chef.
Current hours are Wednesday through Saturday 5pm to 11pm, Sunday 10am to 9pm
