The best you can expect in a small town

Shippensburg doesn't offer much so it's impressive alone that there's a restaurant like this here. I've eaten here a few times since moving to town four years ago.

The University Grille was recommend to us and I am glad they did. Great menu, perfect location and atmosphere. Staff couldn't have been any nicer and food very tasty. We even got to meet Phil Vassar who we were going to see that night when he walked through the restaurant. Bonus!!!

I was with a group of friends, we had reservations, it took over an hour to even get drinks. the food came out 1 1/2 hours after we sat down. It was ok, not great. The location and atmosphere are good. Service was ok, they were trying to service but it seemed to be to crowded. At our table they... More

I frequently go for lunch and order their tasty Tomato Bisque Soup and large Greek Salad with added Shrimp. Wonderful lunch!

First time here and had a very nice dining experience and the so vial we were pleasantly surprised on Friday's is all you can eat crab legs that were very good quality. Highly recommend and easy to find downtown Shippensburg with an alley entrance to the back parking lot and rear entrance to the restaurant/hotel.

Upon entering you would never suspect that in the evening, despite its name, it would fill with college students. Warm atmosphere, live music, and tap beers kept us coming back every meal of our trip. The menu was diverse with everything from seafood to a prime rib panini (which is excellent). The crab cakes were exploding with meat, and fell... More

This is the second time I've been here for lunch and this visit was very, very pleasant. Our server, Rolf, was very attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. I ordered the veggie ciabatta sandwich and an edamame appetizer. For a non-Asian place, I was very impressed w/that appetizer. The soybeans were done to perfection. The sandwich was generously sized; the ingredients were... More

We ate here last night and will NEVER return. We went for the all you can eat crab leg special and were incredibly disappointed. We arrived at 5:30 and didn't get our first round until 6:30. I have steamed crab legs at home before and it only takes about 5 minutes not an hour. When we finally got them, they... More

The food and the drinks were very good, but the service is what made the night for me. The live music in the tavern and the great atmosphere resulted in me over indulging and having to spend the night in the hotel upstairs rather than drive home. A night to remember for me and I will definitely be back for... More

As S.U. alumni, I recommend this place if you're looking for G-Man replacement (may the G-Man rest in peace. Stay away from Knute's- very unfriendly to alumni and anyone who isn't local- total townie bar...I experienced outward aggression there (homophobic remarks)...
