Between Harvard Square and downtown Waltham, there are plenty of off-campus dining options for students to choose from. While the shuttle makes it easier for students who do not have cars to eat out, do not overlook the possibilities of eating locally. Waltham has a wide variety of restaurants, delis, and pubs to chose from; any food preference from Asian to Mexican and Italian can be found near by. The prime locations for off-campus dining include Moody and Main streets, which boast a Bentley favorite, Margaritas, along with the staple pub food at the Skellig and John Brewer's. However if you want a chance to explore Cambridge a little more, restaurants such as Bertucci's, Fire + Ice, and Charlie's Kitchen are only a short walk from Harvard. There are many other choices besides, you are only limited by how far you want to walk or how hungry you are. Plus, once you are in Cambridge, you have the option of jumping over to Boston on the T, which can also be fun. The North End and Chinatown are two of the obvious choices across the Charles.
Of course there are also delivery and late night choices as well. The local Domino's is very popular, as well as several Chinese dining options. There is plenty of variety for sit down or delivery. The area also boasts an array of fast food chains if you are hankering for a quick, greasy option.
