3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: It is okay but things are definitely growing in Morgantown.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: It's about as normal as most towns

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Love local places, but there are a bunch of chains, too. Perfect for any forte.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining, especially for late nights, is awesome. You can never walk up High Street hungry at 3 am as long as you have $5 in your pocket. Most restaurants also deliver, in case you feel like being lazy.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: A lot of variety with plenty of non chain restaurants to keep you getting something different for months.

With so many different choices all over campus, it would be hard for a student to go hungry. Variety, quality, and reasonable prices will please any college student. Choices range from walk-in pizza places and fast food to affordable sit-down restaurants where a student can get a good meal for a decent price. There are great specials at places, like Texas Roadhouse and Buffalo Wild Wings, that offer half-price appetizers and wing specials.

Most of the restaurants are within walking distance of Downtown Campus and open late for students who have the urge for a snack late. Almost every place offers discounts and specials on each night of the week, while some also offer a discount for showing a student ID. Good places to go with your parents or on a date are Texas Roadhouse and Buffalo Wild Wings, and environmentally friendly restaurants like Black Bear offer vegan entrees. Almost all of the restaurants continue with the town tradition of catering to students, as they offer great student specials and free delivery to students. Students are the main source of business for most of the restaurants here, so they treat the students as well as anyone could ask.
