The innovative dining program at Friendship Village of Dublin is called Preferred Choice Dining™.

Family and friends find it particularly enjoyable to join residents for the special dining experiences offered at Friendship Village of Dublin. You decide where and when you spend your dining allocation.
Our multiple dining venues offer a wide variety of selection from buffet style service to a la carte-style dining.
Our Main Dining Room is a casual facility open daily for lunch and dinner, offering both a buffet and menu items. Choose from the fresh salad bar, hot buffet, chef special, grill special and heart healthy plate, along with various traditional sandwiches from the menu. The soups of the day are always a big hit. There are no reservations needed, but you can make them if you like. In the evening, the tables are covered with tablecloths so you can enjoy a fine meal next to one the two fireplaces while having a cappuccino. The Main Dining Room can cater lunch and dinner events and offers take-out and delivery for our residents. Join us for our popular Champagne Sunday Brunch.
The North Dining Room is a more formal atmosphere with its numerous gold chandeliers, white tablecloths and working fireplace. We like to call it an upscale steakhouse feel.
