What Students Are Saying

3.87 Average Rating
All food everywhere in Charleston is delicious, being a New Olreans, LA native I am picky about good food, but the cuisine here has surpassed my standards.
Robert from Hickory, NC
You have lots of meal options on campus that are good most of the time. Of course, if you aren't in the mood for a dining hall, you are literally in one of the culinary capitals of the world so eat up!
