Current News

We are looking forward to seeing you all again!  We will be open normal hours for Murray State students, faculty, and staff beginning Monday 8/17/2020.  We look a little different, but we hope you will still find enough delicious food to eat.  There is extra seating in the small dining room in the cafeteria and the ballroom, or you may take your meal to-go.

To all of our very valued guests, students, faculty, staff, and friends,

We are with you, we understand that this is a time of fear and uncertainty and we will do everything we can to protect you, your families, and our amazing employees as well.  We plan to do this by keeping the spaces as clean and sanitized as we always have and to make all the new and  necessary steps to keep us ALL safe and healthy.

When we return, our operation will look very different, but we hope you will still find enough  variety  in what we can now offer to be served safely. 

Thank you for your patience as we navigate this hard time; everyone stay safe and be safe for the sake of others!
