Press release issued by Danco on behalf of the Samoa Cookhouse:

We are thrilled to announce the upcoming renovation of one of the most historic and last-standing Cookhouse restaurants in the Western United States. We are confident that this renovation will enhance the experience for our guests and ensure that the Samoa Cookhouse continues to be a beloved destination for years to come.

Since 1890, the Samoa Cookhouse has long been known for its distinctive character, and we are committed to preserving that character while also making necessary updates to ensure that the space is comfortable, functional, and welcoming for all guests.

The renovation will be a significant undertaking, with a focus on preserving the restaurant’s historic character while also updating the space to meet the needs of modern restaurants.

Major improvements will involve adding eighteen rentable hostel rooms upstairs and one fully accessible ADA unit on the main floor, outdoor seating areas, and adding thirty-six cabins below the Samoa Cookhouse which can be rented for family gatherings and events. 

We are aware that the renovation of the Samoa Cookhouse means you will have to wait to eat our famous french toast and delicious fried chicken, but we know you will understand that this renovation is necessary to improve and provide you with an even better dining experience in the future.  

Thank you for your continued support and enthusiasm for this project. We appreciate your patience and loyalty, and we look forward to welcoming you back once the renovation is complete.
