    The food isn't all that great all the time (typical college food) but you can order food and have company dinners which will have pizza and pasta or whatever the seniors decide on.

    I honestly have no idea how the food is but I heard it's not that bad compared to regular universities so I guess that's a plus If anything you can always order stuff.

    Every student eats at least two meals in West Point's fabled Washington Hall. It is a dining hall that provides each student the proper amount of food to succeed during the academic hours. The last meal of the day can be eaten in Washington Hall, at the Cadet Restaurant, or order out food from the nearby town of Highland Falls.

    As efficent as the mess hall is, feeding 4600 people in a half hour, the food itself isn't the best. We eat family style, ten people to a table, and the entire Corps is fed and off to class in less than 20 minutes.

    The food is served on a rotating schedule, and you quickly learn what the good meals and bad meals are. I personally found the food to be suited only to certain tastes (foods such a gyro, pesto pasta, and Ruben sandwiches didn't appeal to me). There are some worshiped meals that all cadets love such as chicken crispitos, lasagna, and chicken pot pie and I did find those to be pretty good. Meals are mandatory as well and you are seated at a ten person table which changes periodically. Overall, the food isn't bad, but it just didn't personally fit my palette. There is a little restaurant called Grant Hall which is basically like an overpriced McDonald's, but the food is pretty good there though.
