What Students Are Saying

4.88 Average Rating
The food is absolutely amazing, fresh, and varied. Most foods in Maine are this way, and Bowdoin is no exception.
Allyson from West Bloomfield, MI
Best in the country. Actually.
Samuel from South China, ME
The food is unbelievable, and not to mention incredibly healthy for the most part.
Jared from South Orange, NJ
Bowdoin literally has the nation's best college campus food. They're rated for it. It's amazing.
Marcela from Saint Louis, MO
The food is absolutely amazing! There is something for everybody.
Symone from Calumet City, IL
Constantly, top ranked for dining. I believe that the food is good but the dining staff are great.
AM New York, NY
Food is absolutely to die for. Never worry about having the same thing twice because the menu is always different and always amazing. A lot of the food is organic and they have food dishes for all needs. Vegetarian, gluten free, no eggs, or seafood and dishes for all the people that want all that stuff. The food in the town is almost better. Little Tokyo has the best sushi every. Gelato Fiasco has nationally and internationally recognized gelato that is said to be the best and you would be surprised to find a celebrity or two there at night when few people are there having a taste.
Taylor from Baltimore, MD
#1 in the country! And for a reason, too. The meals are wonderful and there are always healthy options. Dining service tries to accommodate everyone and tries incorporating local food into the menu. Gluten free and vegan meals are always available.

Brunswick is a small town. Definitely not a place for people who are looking for a big city. There are some awesome food places to try, grocery stores, a few shopping places, and other places in greater Brunswick, Also partying is a big thing to do on weekends, but there are many more options.
