We ordered the black grouper that crunches (excellent) and shrimp cocktail. Food was excellent. We returned for their prime rib special - the server was not Paul - she was no... More

Thank goodness for some great food & service after eating at Pinchers the night before. We ordered the top 3 items on the menu, according to our server Matt who was top notch. My son & I both enjoyed the "Godfather", a large bowl of pasta with shrimp, mussels, & grouper, in a cream base, it was superb. To put... More

Dependably delicious, quality food. We both ordered the baked haddock and it was amazing as always. We do appreciate the consistently excellent food and service. Our last visit our server was "Jen", and she was professional, attentive, helpful, and personable! She mentioned how good the prime rib is on Sundays. May have to go try it.

Loved the coconut shrimp. Service a little slow,but very friendly. Had to wait in the bar for a table- bartender was awesome-friendly and informative. We were headed to a show at FSW and wished the service would have been a little faster-Just plan for a wait and for moderate wait for food once ordered. Food was delicious.

We go by this restaurant on our way home and the parking lot is always filled. We decided to go at 4pm when they opened before the crowd. The hostess seated us. The table was set with a white table cloth. I thought we might be under dressed but all kinds of people with different types of attire. Sandra who... 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.
