Santiam Restaurant

This fine dining restaurant, located on the second floor of the Calapooia Center Building in room CC-201 (map pdf), is operated by students in the Culinary Arts Program. Here you will find first-year students training as wait staff waiting to serve you the best meal you've ever had within the confines of a college campus. A second-year student oversees the operation as Restaurant Manager while second-year students prepare your meal in the kitchen.

This full service a la carte restaurant was developed to train dinner house cooks, wait staff, and restaurant managers under realistic conditions. Espresso and pastries are available between 9:30 a.m to 11:00 a.m., and lunch seating is from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday during school terms. The menu changes each term and gives student chefs a chance to show their creativity through daily specials.

 

We are closed for the summer and will re-open Fall Term on Tuesday, October 14.

 
Call 541-917-4392 in October for reservations.
