Lenoir Dining, the Ole Miss student-operated restaurant, is back in the swing of things, serving up lunch and dinner on Tuesdays and lunch only on Thursdays. The menu changes every week, so you always have a new experience.
Students and faculty of Ole Miss pay $7.50 for beverage, salad, entree and dessert. Those not associated with the school pay only a few dollars more.
It’s a great way to try something new and help students learn the hospitality industry while you’re at it.

There are some days when you just feel like breaking out of the Square and trying something new.
If you’re open to a bit of experimentation, Lenoir Dining, the student-run restaurant on the Ole Miss campus, is an educational operation that brings together students from the Ole Miss Hospitality Management and Dietetics and Nutrition programs. Housed in Lenoir Hall, the non-profit 40-seat teaching laboratory offers students hands-on experience in all facets of restaurant operations.
Chef Lee Craven, who graduated from the Culinary Institute of America with honors in 2000, is the executive chef of Lenoir Dining. He heads up culinary labs and management courses in which he teaches students to plan, purchase, and execute menus and maintenance for the student-operated restaurant. Prior to instructing at Ole Miss, Craven was executive chef of Morgan Freeman’s restaurant Madidi, in Clarksdale, where he was recognized as a “Rising Star of American Cuisine” by the James Beard Foundation, 2004.
Lenoir serves lunch on Tuesday and Thursday, dinner on Tuesday only. Reservations give the students more experience, but walk-ins are welcome. The restaurant is located on Sorority Row inside Lenoir Hall, Room 103. Call 662-915-1863 or visit Lenoir online for more information.
