What Students Are Saying

3.74 Average Rating
Rider has multiple places to eat, as well as a Starbucks and other Coffee/snack stands around campus, plus a Convenience store. Dalys is the main dining hall, plus there is Cranberry's in the Student Center, and then the Diner at night. Dalys is your typical dining hall, and Cranberry's is just like the diner, both of which have made to order diner food, though Cranberry's also has pre-made stuff like sandwiches and salads, and also has the Wawa milkshakes.

The food has improved since the first year I was there although with their new process it takes them longer to get food out. They added some new kitchen staff who are much nicer and way more talkative which makes the dining experience better.

The Dining Commons on Princeton's campus are pretty bad. They offer a large variety for a small school, but it doesn't always taste good. The salad and sandwich bar is your best friend.

Aside from it rather high costs, Cranberries is currently the best place to eat on campus. For late night cravings, be sure to stop by the diner and order a Fat Bronc. Yum!
Also, having a Starbucks on campus is absolutely amazing. Rumor has it that Rider is currently building a Subway sandwich shop on campus this semester as well!

I love Cranberry's and the Pub.

There are several options of food dining from the general cafeteria to a late night diner, an academic to go store and more. There is a variety of food for every stomach. They have vegetarian options, gluten free, etc.

Bunch is SOOO AMAZING on the weekends. OMG. Also, breakfast in general, we have a so many bagels and people to make eggs. Also, we have like 25 different cereals. In addition, every there is something different and very good. They also always have pizza. I do love to order out sometimes, there is a diner on campus, we have to-go containers, and there is a second dining hall called Cranberries which has so many different choices. Depending on your meal plan, you can eat as much or as little as you want- however, I would suggest getting the unlimited b/ the dining halls are open so late that its so much fun to go to. Surpisingly, just an FYI, although the food is sooo good, don't worry about freshman 15 b/ there is so much to do to keep off the weight and a lot of healthy choices that are very good.
