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.

Ate at this very busy restaurant last Wednesday nite. Sat at the bar with Tina and Sarah, who took great care of us. The early menu for $15, included baked New England haddock, which was absolutely delicious and just the right portion served with awesome Cole slaw and potato. Can't get better than this place, service was great, food really... More

We needed a good place to eat before dropping off a guest at the airport. A supper choice, selected from Tripadvisor reviews. Wonderful halibut, great tilapia, excellent burger for the landlubber in our group. The meals were very well prepared, drinks were great, house Chardonnay, craft beer. Cindy, our waitress was attentive and professional. We will definitely return.

I joined four others for lunch on a Monday afternoon. We arrived just before the crowds, right at noon. We were greeted and seated by a friendly host. Our server was prompt, friendly and attentive. I had a kale salad, which was very good. There were fish and chips, crab bisque and a tomato mozzarella salad at our table. Everyone... More

On Superbowl Sunday our group of seven had a wonderful experience. First of all the wait person Stephanie was wonderful and welcoming. A number of us tried the special called Horseradish Encrusted Grouper piled high with fried leek strings and a rum butter sauce on a huge mound of garlic smashed potatoes. Just thinking about it makes my mouth water.... More

My girlfriend and I stopped by yesterday. We normally sit at the bar when we stop somewhere. All the seats were full so we asked to be seated at a table. Our server. Cindy, was very attentive and took our orders. We ordered off their Early Dining menu which had excellent choices and was a great value. I ordered a... More

I was so impressed by this restaurant that I am writing this review first thing the morning after. We've lived in Cape Coral for 4 years and have family who have been here over 30 years. We've tried them all and this one is at the top of the list. This restaurant is very popular and spacious but was full... More

We arrived a little early and there was a long wait with lots of people standing and no chairs to be had. It was too cold to sit outside and we weren't given a buzzer since we "had a reservation." Once we got seated things were fine. The bread with oil and herbs was very good as were the two... More

My husband and I arrived at 5:15 and the place was full. They have an early bird menu for $15. We were lucky enough to get a table quickly. Service was quick and our waiter friendly. The food we ordered off the early bird menu was very good. I had the coconut shrimp and my husband had a steak. The... More
