What Students Are Saying

4.15 Average Rating
The dining hall- Servo, is delicious. Breakfast is by far the best meal that they serve- they have the most delicious eggs, oatmeal and variety of fresh fruit! There are a wide variety of foods to take into account all students' needs. For every meal there are vegan and vegetarian options. Servo is ranked one of the best dining halls in the US.

The dining hall is pretty good compared to some other schools. There is always something for everyone available at the dining hall, and there are also a decent amount of other places to eat either on or off campus.
Jenn from Warminster, PA
Currently our Dining Hall (Servo) is rated #9 in the country; not only is the food really good, but there is always a wide variety of options, and the school is very gluten-free or vegan-accessible. And the specialty dinner that are thrown, like Servo Thanksgiving, are fun and have students literally waiting in line outside for hours.
Suzy from Syracuse, NY
Servo, our main dining hall, has been rated in the top 10 campus foods among colleges 7 out go the last 15 years. The food is absolutely phenomenal. All the food is organic and classically prepared by a team of chefs. There are always 7-10 different options including a gluten-free section and a vegetarian and vegan bar, along with a panini press and deli. The Servo staff is very focused on sustainability, avoiding waste where possible. And the Servo cookies are to die for. They are so good that students request them when they are abroad and have them sent to Australia, Denmark, China, Japan, wherever, because they miss them more than their own mother's cooking. Freshmen have unlimited meal plans and upperclassmen have more choices on different plans that are all very reasonable. The other dining halls on campus include a sub line, a sushi and salad bar and a smoothie bar, all of which are awesome.
Kaytie from MA
The food at Gettysburg is rated among the best! They have vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free options. Some of the food is organic, and there is also kosher food available. All of the food is fresh and a lot is made to order! I have yet to have a meal there that I did not enjoy. Also, the cookies are homemade and oh so yummy!
Erin from Slatington, PA
If you get a chance to visit, make sure you go to the dining center - Servo. They have the best cookies at lunch time. They also have vegan and vegetarian options everyday and will accommodate every dietary need - including gluten free and kosher cooking. Students are invited to walk into the kitchen and ask for something if their diet restricts them from eating the dishes on the menu for that evening.
Celina from Rocky Ridge, MD
The food at Servo is pretty good, even if it does get a bit repetitive after a while.
Absolutely love the food. Servo is one of the

Gettysburg College actually is recognized for its food. The dining hall always serves something for everyone. There is never a day when there is not something delicious on the menu. The food is also pretty healthy, too. Yes, there is pizza and burgers, but they also serve a variety of fresh fruits and veggies at every meal!
