This is one of our favorite restaurants in Ft. Myers. Just decided to "try" it one day as it looked interesting. We were pleasantly surprised and have become frequent patrons. The food is of high quality and superbly prepared and presented. The extensive menu consists of a nice mix of beef and seafood. The haddock is available as baked or... More

If you want to try something special in the seafood family go to Universary Grill. Try their sesame crusted tuna with the teriyaki sauce. My wife's favorite is the crab bisque and the grilled hamburger with the smothered onions and mushrooms.This place is part of the same group that owns The Prawnbroker and the Timbers in Sanibel always great food,...

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.
