4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I try to save my money the best I can, but sometime I just can't resist the allure of some off-campus food. We have some great "safe" options like pizza and wing spots or Chinese food restaurants, but we also have some more adventurous places around. All of which students can discover themselves when they venture out to find their preferences.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I only wish students in frostburg got a deal SOMEWHERE

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Due to the fact that we are in a very remote location there aren't many places to eat off campus outside of ordering pizza or chinese, or eating mcdonald's.

4 Recent Alumnus

There are a lot of off-campus dining places, but a few of them are a bit pricier than others. A lot of the restaurants and bars are right off campus, but others are in LaVale or Cumberland. The ones that are closer to campus (El Canelo, Main Street Hangar, and Wild Things Restaurant & Bar) are the ones that are the cheapest. When you start going to chain restaurants, such as Applebee's or Ruby Tuesday, then the prices will be a lot higher. There are some restaurants designed for the romantic date, such as Au Petit Paris and Giuseppe's Italian Restaurant. No matter the occasion, there are plenty of restaurants, either within walking distance or just a short drive away, to fulfill any person's needs.

If you are someone who needs a vegetarian-friendly location, then the place to go is Wild Things Restaurant & Bar. The food is incredibly cheap, within walking distance from campus, and it has so many events and live bands. This is the place where all of the college kids love to hang out, so if you are looking to meet someone new, take a trip to Main Street and stop in here.
