If you want to eat somewhere a bit special, then University Grill is the place to go. The food is fresh and the specials change frequently. I've been there for lunch and the evening meal and both are excellent. Love, love, love the coffee and the service is excellent. I've had the salmon patties, fresh salmon sandwich and fish in...

Girlfriend had the shrimp salad both times and she really enjoyed it. I had the burger for lunch the next time and was good. Place is nice and laid back with decent... More

We had to wait for about 1/2 an hour to get a table. We were seated out on the porch. It's pretty decorated, but, very loud.. You have to almost shout to be able to talk to your table mates. The place was busy, we got waited on quickly, but, waited quite awhile before our meals were served. The food... More

This was the second Easter Sunday at University Grill. Both meals were very good. Everyone in my party enjoyed it so much last year that we wanted to do it again this year. The restaurant is extremely crowded on Easter Sunday, but they do take reservations. We had a nice corner seated at a big round table overlooking the fountain... More

It's just that ........ an average gray place, this includes the food and service. I felt like I was in a retirement home. There are other places in the area to go to besides this place.

We recently had dinner at the University Grill. Based on reviews here, we had high hopes for a great meal. We first stopped at the bar for a drink and the service was great. We sat down for dinner and our server arrived promptly. He seemed in a hurry to get us to order (the restaurant was not busy). My... More

We love this place! It is the first restaurant we go to every time we visit Fort Myers. It is a busy place, but just reinforces how good it is. They pour a great generous glass of wine, the staff is friendly and helpful. We have recommended this to several friends and every one of them has loved the place.... More
