Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus is nice every once in a while, but the cost can quickly rack up. It does provide a nice change from the caf when you do though.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

There are a couple restaurants around Lewisburg that students love. OIPS and the Bull Run Inn are cheap and relatively close to campus. Students will eat at these types of restaurants for a quick meal, but unlike other campuses, it’s not common for students to eat off campus frequently. Since freshmen aren’t allowed to have cars, they really can only eat in the downtown area because it is within walking distance. Students choose to eat off campus mostly on the weekends when they have the time to walk downtown or drive to the surrounding area for a sit-down dinner. Many students go to BJ’s, Marcos Tapas, or Applebee's to celebrate birthdays or if they are looking for a nicer atmosphere. Elizabeth’s is the most upscale of all of all the restaurants, and students really only go there when their parents are in town.

The Lewisburg area has a lot of really great restaurants for a small town. Elizabeth’s and Brasserie Louis are nicer and serve high-quality entrees. The other restaurants are good for the average college student’s tastes and budget. Marcos Tapas is very popular among students because it is BYOB. Many students also frequently walk down to the Freez, which serves generous portions of ice cream and always draws long line because the ice cream is delicious. Going out for a meal at Bucknell, though, is a big deal. It’s not part of the average Bucknellian’s daily schedule since the restaurants are all at least a 10-minute walk from campus. It would be nice if there were some outside venders serving food at Bucknell. A Subway or Dunkin’ Donuts on campus would see a lot of student business. Currently, though, only the Bucknell Dining Services prepares all of the food on campus.
