Skeptical at first but once inside we saw this is a very well established high end establishment. We enjoyed the seafood specials with a mix of seafood with pasta, grouper sandwich, broiled salmon, calamari, crustininis and some of the best crab bisque found anywhere. The only downside is we were too full to try dessert.

We decided to try some place new. And we were really impressed. The Crab bisque was fantastic. The lobster was cooked to perfection. Escargot was very good as well. The Prime rib was flavorfully delicious! We will return!!

Great relaxing dinner spot. Good value with reliably good food and beverages. Popular spot with the older crowd and especially busy when the snowbirds are in town. Love the Eddie Cooks Italian nights

We have visited the grill three times, each time we were pleased with the quality of the food however each time we remarked that the place was not clean. There was an unpleasant smell and carpet was filthy. We keep going back for the roast beef sandwich (my favorite) however unless they "clean" up their act we will not be... More

Tried this place a few times and it slowly got worse, I believe it needs some competition as it's got a great location. Interior is reasonable smart but slow indifferent service and poor food makes it one to miss.

Our first visit to University Grill was great. Hostess JoAnn from our hometown of Buffalo NY was just what the doctor ordered. Great meal, wonderful atmosphere, and very reasonable prices. Try the Beef on Weck - they actually get the rolls from Buffalo NY. Loved it!!

I like the food at the grill. It is always good and the service is usually very good. I like the fact that they have a wide variety and I love their soups too.

Located very near to the Barbara Mann Performing Arts Theater makes the University Grill a perfect spot for having dinner/cocktails before or after the show. The décor is tasteful and the food is awesome. This is a great place to take a date or to hang with friends. Best part is,it won't break the bank. I sat at the bar... More

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.
