Come Dine With Us At the Allenwood

Posted on 2/27/2019 3:32:43 PM

It’s been a few years since the Allenwood has been open for dining on campus, but it’s back and better than ever.

IUP students enrolled in Hospitality Management and Food and Nutrition programs are required to take two laboratory courses offered through the Department of Hospitality Management. In both of these courses the students manage the Allenwood. This opportunity provides them with valuable hands-on learning and critical skills and experience towards their future careers.

  • Food production techniques
  • Safe food handling procedures
  • Team building
  • Communication
  • Leadership skills

These students also apply and develop managerial functions of planning, organizing, influencing, and controlling a food-service operation.

Table setting at the Allenwood By dining with us at the Allenwood, you not only are in for a treat with our fabulous, steakhouse-themed menus, but you are also supporting our students and helping to prepare the next generation of hospitality professionals.

The Allenwood is open during the spring 2019 semester for lunch on Wednesdays and Fridays from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Reservations are not required, but are encouraged. Seating is limited, and guests are taken on a first-come, first-served basis.

If you would like to make a reservation for any of our open dates, please visit the Lunch Reservation page to request a reservation. Once your reservation is received, a confirmation email will be sent within 24 hours.

We look forward to serving you soon!
