Riderwood Dining

Are you ready to let someone else do the food shopping, cooking, and cleaning up? At Riderwood in Silver Spring, our personal chefs and solicitous wait staff take care of all the details so you can relax and enjoy every meal. We use fresh, local ingredients and wonderful seasonings to create dishes that are sure to delight you.  

A flexible dining plan is included in your Monthly Service Package. It can be used in any of Riderwood’s six campus restaurants, as well as for carry out options if you’re eating on the go or prefer to dine in your apartment home.

Flexible Dining Options

At Riderwood you have the freedom to enjoy your meals, your way. Choose the dining plan that suits your lifestyle. Credits can also be used to treat family and friends to a delicious Riderwood meal, too!

  • Traditional Plan: Choose this plan if you expect to enjoy at least one meal each day at Riderwood. You’ll receive meal credits equal to the number of days in the month.
  • 20-Meal Plan: If you will be dining off-campus or expect to prepare meals in the fully-appointed kitchen in your Riderwood apartment home, the 20 meal plan is a good value. It includes 20 meals per month in any Riderwood restaurant for a reduced Monthly Service Package fee.

If your preferences or dining habits change, that’s OK. You can switch your meal plan option each quarter.  

Dining here is very much like dining on a cruise. The food is wonderful and we meet all kinds of people.
