Lion House Pantry: Home Cooking with a "Side of History"

Published: 05/14/2009

- A Visit Salt Lake Connect Pass Attraction -

Salt Lake City (May 2009)-Located in one of Brigham Young's original homes in Salt Lake's historic Temple Square, the Lion House Pantry Restaurant is a home-style restaurant offering a wide array of entree and side dishes that vary by the day. Visitors using the Visit Salt Lake Connect Pass can further enjoy their day with a complimentary lunch at the Lion House, as a Pioneer Meal is included with each day of the Connect Pass. 

The Pantry offers several delicious choices of home cooking available daily, including pork chops, prime rib, mashed potatoes, BBQ chicken and many more. There is also a daily soup and a choice of salad with every Pioneer Meal. The in-house bakery whips out its famous rolls, pastries and desserts, as well.

The restaurant not only offers great home cooking, but it also includes a "side of history." The Lion House building was completed in 1856 and is one of the oldest buildings in Salt Lake City.  As one of the residences of the Mormon Church's early leaders, Brigham Young, the Lion House is now listed on the National Registry of Historic Landmarks.

Diners at the Lion House Pantry enjoy the historical atmosphere and the many photographs and paintings on the wall, many dating back more than a century. The restaurant also displays a wide range of local pioneer memorabilia and artwork. 

The Lion House is open daily 11:00am-8:00pm Monday through Saturday year round, and is ideal for all ages and group sizes. Validated parking is available.
