Samuel D's Restaurant

Samuel D's Dining Room Samuel D's Restaurant is the student laboratory restaurant of the SUNY Plattsburgh Department of Hotel, Restaurant, and Tourism Management.

The hotel, restaurant, and tourism management program is one of eight programs in the School of Business and Economics at SUNY Plattsburgh. Although the primary focus for students in the HRTM program is on the development of management skills, the faculty believe in the value of understanding the realistic elements of the environment in which students will become managers. Samuel D's Restaurant is one of several vehicles for accomplishing that goal.

The name of the restaurant, Samuel D's, honors one of the area's early French explorers, Samuel de Champlain. It follows the results of a contest to name the facility held among students in the School of Business and Economics.

Samuel Ds is a registered user of the Restaurant Manager POS System, a POS solution selected for the school as a model of the cutting edge technology that is defining the future of restaurant management systems. Visit Restaurant Manager's website for more information on the Restaurant Manager POS System.

Samuel D's is located in the west wing of Sibley Hall, 113 Rugar Street, on the SUNY Plattsburgh campus. Look for the blue Samuel D's awning on the front of Sibley Hall.
