    The cafeteria has top grade food, plus it is located on the river which makes for a great view.

    With Tv's all around and comfy chairs and a various amount of things to have for lunch could be the place to hang out with friends. The food is delicious and if your on a diet they have a make your own salad bar or maybe just your morning coffee.

    The food is AMAZING! I am still blown away by the variety of Dowling's food selection. Every day there is something new that you can try. And everything is portable, affordable, and health conscience.

    Not your typical dining experience. You have a choice of what to get and the menu is limited. There is no buffet style here.

    The food is mostly not very good. Sometimes the daily special is very good, but I stay away from the burgers, fries, and anything that is sitting under the heat lamp. The fresh sandwich station tends to be good but it is very busy.

    For the most part, the food taste great. The chefs are very social with the students. However, everything in the cafeteria is highly overpriced.

    I would give the food and dinning a 3 out of 5 rating. The food is good and there is a variety of different options for people to choose from. It is however, a little pricey. I am on a gluten-free diet and the cafeteria now offers gluten-free pizza which is great, I just wish there was more of a selection for me to eat.

    While attending Dowling, I have developed a taste for different foods for the reason that the cafeteria has such a large selection. They provide breakfast, lunch and dinner with full course meals and a deli.
