Stop by University Grill for a beer. It was Happy Hour and they had several appetizers at reduced prices during Happy Hour. They had Escargot for $6 dollars. What a fantastic appetizer plus there was reduced pricing on Stella beer - wow what a deal Escargot & Stella for less than $10 dollars. I definitely will recommend this to my... More

Thanks to Joann & Chef Eddie, my son's 5th Grade Celebration lunch was wonderful! Originally I had contact another restaurant, one near the school, to have a luncheon after our son's 5th grade celebration ceremony (this past May). For two weeks I and my husband had communicated, in person and over the phone, with the restaurant. It was made clear... More

We visited University Grill yesterday, this is my third visit in the last 2 years. Food is great, the portions are big and the service was great, Matt was our server. The manager Heather takes the time to talk to the customers, which we thought was a great idea

We dine at University Grill several times a year. Generally the restaurant is extremely busy and reservations are a must during "season." This past Sunday my husband and I decided to brave a nasty thunderstorm and go to University Grill for dinner. Due to the weather the restaurant was not especially busy and this gave us a chance to have... More

Went to dinner w/ friends before Downtown July 4th fireworks. Been here before, but this time food was not up to par. Hub had grouper sandwich....grouper was small portion and fishy. We sent back and it was taken off bill. I had coconut shrimp...a bit too sweet and raspberry sauce was over the top sweet. I asked for asian sauce... More

Superp dining with professional wait staff..you just can't beat University Grill. It's such a deal to dine early with their huge "early bird" menu...(we love the baked haddock) Great prices, large pours on the wine, helpful waiters and waitresses and a beautiful atmosphere...it's long been our favorite restaurant in Ft Myers.

The service was excellent and fun. The steaks were quite good. The atmosphere was most pleasant. And then the bill was modest. Definitely a place I will return when I can.

I came in to the restaurant a few days ago and I have to say the food was good and our server was excellent. However I don't appreciate being laughed and mocked at by some of the other employees I asked to be moved to a table instead of a booth because it was too small to fit comfortably and... More

University Grill is one of our "celebration" restaurants. No matter what you are in the mood for you have to order the crab bisque. It is s amazing. I could go there and eat only that and their free amazing bread. Steaks are amazing! Love the steak and coconut shrimp. Go early for the early bird special and have the... More

We have been regulars of this restaurant for years- always great service & great food! We have always requested one of the two veteran male servers that have been there for years, our favorite being Michael. He has always gone above & beyond to ensure our dining experience is perfect. We went in a couple days ago and neither of... More
