    The cafeteria food is decent - some of it good, some not so much - but there are other options and there's cereal, sandwiches and other items you can prepare for yourself. There's also a pizza place, a restaurant, and two cafes.

    The food here is either a hit or miss. Some of the meals are awesome and I could eat all day while others I pass on. The good thing though is that there's always stuff in the cafeteria that you can prepare yourself.

    The food is alright, the Cafeteria has several options which change every day. There is also a pizza place on campus as well as a small restaurant where you can eat. Fairly average as far as campus dining goes.

    The cafeteria is an all you can eat buffet for one meal swipe on your card. Even if you get tired of cafeteria food, there are other options on campus. There is a high quality restaurant called the Monte Cassino Inn and there is even a pizza place under construction.

    My favorite place is the Monte Casino inn, a resturant located in the Haverty Center, right next to the Raven Store.

    The food has been better. There are times when it has not been good at all by but there are times when the food is plenty good. Most of the time it is good.

    there aren't a ton of options when it comes to food, but benedictine does well with the number of students. there's a restaurant on campus that serves great food that you can buy with dining dollars. the cafeteria has a lot of options, but as with any college, you get a little tired of the food after a while. benedictine makes up for that with it's grab-n-go options, which are like cold lunch at two other campus locations. there's a coffee shop that's open in the morning and at night called holy grounds, and it's definitely a hotspot for students. at night we also have a late night option for those looking for a late-night snack.

    multiple dining options around campus make it easy to meet up with friends and grab a quick bite between classes. the mci is a great on campus sit down restaurant for nights when you want to have something special.
