The university grill is a upscale local bar and grill. From great burgers and beer,to high choice aged meats and fresh seafood. Our customers are very loyal as are our winter locals. When someone has been here for the first time there comment is why did it take me so long to find this place.

The best escargot !

The best escargot I have had in a long time. Great atmosphere and service. We felt a little rushed at first, but advised the wait staff we were in no hurry.

Interior panders to an Oxford type library look due to its proximity to Florida SW College (formerly Edison College). Food is excellent! Have eaten there of lunch and dinner.- all meals were superb. Some of the best fish dishes I have had anywhere! On a man made lake, next to shopping mall. Don't try to eat there on nights that... More

We don't get here as often as we like but we try to go on Sundays for the Prime Rib. The last time we were there we were waited on by Bobby and his service is fantastic.
