The dining hall offers a great deal of variety and accommodates various types of cuisines, dietary restrictions, and generally aims for nutrition. Additionally, the Spencer Grill offers Out Takes for those students in a rush or busy cramming. Out Takes uses a meal that would have been valid at the dining hall, but it give you chips, cookies, a drink, and a vegetarian or non-vegetarian entrée.
Other than the limited hours, Marketplace offers a couple of decent dining options. The Spencer Grill is a café where you can get sandwiches, quesadillas, Easy Mac, and anything that may help you through the next hour of studying. Bob's Underground Café is another venue where you can get late-night bagels, muffins, and coffee. Grinnell provides you with nutritional dining options mainly because in the town there is only one decent Chinese restaurant, a few Mexican options, and a surfeit of deliciously unhealthy fast food.
