4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Plenty of places to eat if you have a car

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There's typical fast food places, and more expensive places which cater to tourists. Most people end up going to chains or fast food which isn't very healthy, but Eckerd provides discount cards to a number of them.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are lots of really good local dining options but you have to look around for them. Branch out and don't just go to places that you recognize the name of.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Typical college kid places. Taco bell, mcdonalds, burrito boarder which is great, cvs, 7-eleven etc...

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There's a lot of great restaurants in downtown St.Pete but you can really only get to them if you have a car or know someone with a car.

If you’re going out on the town, you’ll never go hungry, but you may go broke! There are so many good place to eat in St. Pete and nearby Tampa—whether it’s Ethiopian or fresh sushi, you’ll find almost any type of cuisine you’re looking for. The best places to look are downtown or on the beach, but really there are great little finds hidden everywhere. From fresh seafood on the beach to authentic Vietnamese food, there’s really nothing St. Pete doesn’t cover, except for Turkish food, for which you may have to go 20 minutes to Tampa.

Several places also deliver to campus or are close enough to Eckerd that ordering food to go and picking it up is no hassle. This includes your standard pizza chains, as well as an original pizza place, Chinese, Italian, and sushi. There are always plenty of options.
