And now they are closed. I believe the family has sold to a new group. Filling up the space to make 100 characters.

Varied menu of burgers, home cookiing and bargain prices. Stumbled on this restaurant and found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The menu has variety and they have daily bar and food specials. We had burgers, sides and 2 beers for $16.50! Burgers were thick and high quality beef. It's not a place with a view, or lengthy...

After the makeover I was interested in trying the new menu. I went there for lunch and ordered the Fried Salmon patty salad and I must say it was VERY tasty! The salmon patties were lightly fried and flavorful. I left thinking, I'll come back. I called a few weeks later about the breakfast menu, after hunting the internet for... More

We have eaten at University Grill many times over the years. We try and frequent local restaurants rather than national chains. Before their makeover the food was average and the experience was hit or miss. Shortly after the makeover we found the food much improved. Distinctive. Above average. The service took on a enthusiastic tone and there was life in... More

This is our third time to University Grill since the Restaurant Impossible re-do. The service was unenthusiastic (servers argued in front of us "Do you want them or you want me to take them?") Greek salad with iceberg lettice....no no, please. Dressing was inedible, mostly oil, no spices. My husband's Chicken Fried Chicken was refried tenders with bland whilte gravy... More

After being on Restaurant impossible, I expected more out of dinner. It tasted ok. Took a long time to get the food even though they were dead.

The staff was loud and unprofessional. Food was so-so. It was not at all high priced, but could have been better.

Wanted to try the restaurant after seeing episode on Restraunt Impossible. Service was good. Wife loved her shrimp and grits. My thirteen year old loved the spaghetti. My steak pita was ok. Meat a little more done then I prefer but ok. The fries on the other hand were awesome! They also had some local craft beers on tap. They... More
