3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Overall, it isn't bad. There just isn't a lot of places or variety, especially for a vegetarian.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: A lot of options for off-campus dining. Very convenient and most are in walking distance from campus. The cost varies between restaurants but most is very affordable. Ice Shack and OIP are the best!

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a few off-campus chain restaurants and fast food. Enough to change things up but nothing special.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are many places to go and some of the places do have student discounts, which is nice.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Love eating off campus there are so many different options.

Fast food restaurants surround Lock Haven. The only known restaurant for students to go on dates, take family members, or have a nice meal is Ruby Tuesday. There are only a few off-campus places at which to eat. Fox’s Restaurant is always packed and hard to get into.

Since Lock Haven is a small college town, there isn’t much to offer students. There are a lot more restaurants located in Penn State and that’s a 45-minute drive to get a decent meal. If students want to go off campus, they have the option of ordering delivery, taking a cheap taxi ride to any one of these restaurants, or driving away from Lock Haven. There aren’t many places for vegetarians or health-conscious students, either. When it comes to variety, there are mainly pizza places, Chinese, fast food, and Ruby Tuesday. On the other hand, everything located in Lock Haven is very affordable and close in price range for students.
