3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are only a few places within walking distance including a local Chinese restaurant that will also deliver to your dorm, a pretty good pizza place, a Subway, a McDonald's, and a coffee shop (a popular hangout for students). By car you can get to a Perkins, a Sheets, a English cuisine restaurant, and a few other chain restaurants. The Chinese place has a decent discount on Sundays. There is also a Pizza Hut near the Perkins that will deliver to your dorm. If you are willing to drive a bit farther, there is a great local restaurant called Rachel's Roadhouse about 30 min. away; they serve the best burgers, ribs, that kind of thing.

Off-Campus Dining: I dont know but i recommend school to make more student discounts

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Grove City is a small town so one cannot expect to get the wide variety that would be available in a major city. There are local diners, pizza places, Chinese, Italian and the typical chain fast-food options.

Off-Campus Dining: It really depends on whether you have a car or not...

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There isn't a lot of off-campus dining options. However, Coffaro's pizza and BoBo Rice Bowl deliver right to the dorms and are open to unhealthy hours of the night. If you can drive, there's more dining options in the neighboring Slippery Rock community and towards the Outlets.

Students do have the chance to eat off-campus; however, none of the 21-meals on the plan transfer to local eateries. Numerous pizza places compete for student patronage, and delivery people are a frequent sight around campus. The Coffee Grove is a popular spot to study or chat over a latté. Just across the street, Victor Lee-a Grove City College icon-runs a highly successful Chinese restaurant. He knows his way around campus, but eating your Chinese in his store might just get you free beverages.

Interested in a quick bite to eat? McDonald's and Subway are a 10-minute walk from campus. Other local quick-stops demand a car. Students can drive the other direction and get sandwiches at Sheetz or a selection of foods from the Prime Outlets food court. Eat `n Park is a popular study spot that serves breakfast 24-7. Places you might want to take your parents include Elephant & Castle, Benjamin's, the Iron Bridge, and Rachel's Roadhouse. Quaker Steak & Lube is quite a drive, but offers great wings.
