3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I do not dine out often. When I do it is likely at an average chain restaurant. I have not been to any of the mom-and-pop type of places because I do not wish to go alone to a sit down restaurant.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are not many dining options specifically associated with Misericordia. However, there are many nearby locations that offer variety and range in cost.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: Its all chain except for the Chinese restaurant and this really expensive grill room place

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are different options available near campus but if you want to go to a chain restaurant you will need to drive at least 20 minutes. Local restaurants do give great discounts for students.

Three words describe off-campus dining in the Misericordia area: variety, inexpensive, and tasty. There are numerous off-campus eating options to please any student’s tastebuds. Northeastern Pennsylvania alone is known for its many local pizza places, and the towns surrounding Misericordia are full of them. Whether students want American fare, ice cream, gourmet entrées, a hot dog, or a quick slice of pizza, they can get it within a 10-minute radius from campus.

The food choices off campus are endless, and the establishments are convenient to get to at any time during the day. Most students like to go out to the lake for the famous Grotto Pizza or just down the street to Ranch Wagon, a giant hot dog stand and local favorite. Students can find everything from Italian to Mexican to Chinese just down the street. If students want to spend a little extra cash, there are a few gourmet restaurants that offer an expensive menu. Hungry for something sweet? Hillside Farms has the creamiest ice cream, only 12 minutes from campus. Students choose to eat off campus often, as the food on campus gets sickening. Some students even take a 15-minute walk to restaurants like the Old House Café or Friendly's. The options are endless, and students love the downtown variety.
