Carlisle has some very diverse places to eat. From the Japanese cuisine at Mount Fuji to the Greek salads and sandwiches at The Back Door Café, you can find a restaurant to fit any taste and budget in Carlisle. Franchise restaurants like Applebee's, Subway, and Panera Bread are all close to campus and popular, yet students love the small local eateries, such as the North Hanover Grille and Issei Noodles just as much. You can expect to find Dickinson students and faculty at any of these places at any given time.
Though some restaurants are farther away, the most popular are those that can be reached on foot or by bicycle—there are more than 20 local eateries within walking distance of the College. Overall, the Borough of Carlisle does a great job attracting unique and tasty restaurants. Dickinson students love going out to eat as much as they love eating in the cafeteria, and students can often be heard raving about new restaurants after they visit them. It is also very popular for students to bring their parents to their favorite Carlisle eateries when they visit, so make sure you make reservations for Homecoming and Parents’ weekend in advance!
