COVID 19 Update

Student Operated Restaurants: With the increased concern over COVID-19, we regret to inform you that our Ka‘ikena & 220 Grille student operated restaurants will be temporarily closed until the end of April. The decision to temporarily close our face to face dining room services is not made lightly; it is intended to protect the health and safety of our students, customers, employees, and community.
Banquets & Catering Services:


Thank you for your patience with us during these uncertain times. While we have tried to shift all events to a later & hopefully safer date for everyone to enjoy; unfortunately, due to budgetary cut backs and concerns of having large gatherings on campus; it has sadly been decided that our Banquet & Catering Dept. will be unable to keep operating.

We will be ending operations on June 30, 2020 and will be contacting you by phone or email to start the refund process of your deposit if a deposit was made.

We apologize for the sudden closure and disruption to your event; but we also Thank you for your support over the years and hope you will still continue to support the other facets of our Culinary Arts program such as the Ka‘ikena & 220 Grille restaurants when they reopen at a safer time.
