What Students Are Saying

3.61 Average Rating
It varies. But being on harborside, you get sick of pasta. There are plenty of options downtown or on harborview though.
Carolina from Yakima, WA
Many options are available to students through food services. Snowden, Marketplace, City Burger, Red Sauce, and even more are all available on the meal plan. The options will satisfy anything you're craving. We even have a Starbucks and two convenience stores for that quick morning or late night food run!
Madison from Allentown, PA
While most campus's have a dinning hall or two, Johnson & Wales has a Dinning Hall on the down city campus and one on the Harboside campus. In addition to both dining hallS, JWU offers a variety of other dining options to keep your meal plan from being repetitive. These places include, Red Sauce (italian style food), BYOB (Build your own burrito), City Burger (burgers and fries), Starbucks, and Market Place (a full market of snacks and pre-made foods)
Milanna from North Providence, RI
Are you kidding, JWU is known for it's Culinary College. Our dining halls and variety of on-campus restaurants are second to none. Most college students lose weight, I have gained weight because the food is so good. Unfortunately, we only get 3 swipes a day so we have to utilize those swipes very wisely....
