What Students Are Saying

4.16 Average Rating
Food is good, but it gets old sometimes. Learn to go out or cook.
Yazan from Chicago, IL
Fairly typical college food, and seems like it would be easy to get bored. Admissions says there's a ton of great restaurants around town, but my student host seemed to disagree.
Anna from Westby, WI
The food is alright. Not the best I've ever had, but much better than a lot of places.
from Grinnell, IA
Looks good! lots of options!
Claire from Cedar Rapids, IA
I'm harsh on the food because I'm from the West Coast. People from the Midwest tend to love Grinnell Dining. There are some quality options, but I find it to be just OK for the most part. Definitely not crappy though!
DJB from Grinnell, IA
Grinnell serves very, very high quality food compared to other college dining halls. However, it can get very repetitive at times.
