5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Great variety and prices! Especially being on a college student budget!

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of varieties. Almost every regional chain and plenty of unique restaurants downtown. Waffle House (an essential) is nearby and the nice staff there will remember your face and name and treat you like family for all your 3am dining needs.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: If you're willing to dive off campus, you can probably find what you need.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Nice amount of the normal fast food stores, then in the "downtown" area there is a nice chain of sit in areas to eat

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Downtown Rome provides everything: cuisines, bars, fast food places, restaurants, mom-and-pop places, you name it! Despite how many students complain of a lack of "night life", I say a night life is my friends and I going out at 1 in the morning to Applebee's on Friday nights in order to enjoy each others company and make plans for the following day.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Rome, Ga., isn't considered a metropolitan area, but there is still something for everyone. Many students head down to Broad Street, Rome's historic downtown area, when they want to eat off campus. Broad Street has an eclectic feel, and a new restaurant seems to pop up every month. It is not uncommon to see professors with their families dining on a weekend night, and students enjoy this area because many of the restaurants offer discounts on already reasonably-priced food. There are options for a wide variety of people and taste buds.

Most restaurants are open for later audiences on the weekends, but because options are not as vast as in areas like Chattanooga or Atlanta, wait times in some restaurants, especially at Mellow Mushroom, can be upwards of 20 minutes. This may give students a chance to explore restaurants they may not have tried before, as most of them are within walking distance of each other. Like any other area, there are many chain restaurants around Rome, and students favor places like Applebee's for late-night drinks and gatherings with friends.
