Waterfront Lofts On-Campus Dining: Pier Nine by Sam Choy

Waterfront Lofts On-Campus Dining: Pier Nine by Sam Choy


Pier Nine by Sam Choy defines a new era for campus dining. Starting with the freshest local ingredients, we turn the kitchen inside out to create an environment where chefs craft every dish to order in front of the guest. Modeled after an open marketplace, this approach allows for the for the freshest and most customized experience, delivered every time. Students eating in Pier Nine by Sam Choy will be able to create their own salad or panini sandwich for a lighter meal, or enjoy a featured special meal from our local partner, Chef Sam Choy, whose custom menu items featured throughout the restaurant. 

The facility is open to the public and features indoor and outdoor seating adjacent to Honolulu Harbor!
