My wife's favorite place for prime rib (rare) so I took her there on a Thursday night for her birthday. You can tell the popularity of a restaurant by a full parking lot, additional cars in an adjacent lot, a completely full bar, and a lot of folks waiting. I had reservations and we were seated in 5 minutes. Stephanie... More

For a pleasant dining experience all-round, the University Grill has become a favorite over many years of spending the winter months in SW Florida. Quality food, well prepared, and, even though frantically busy during, "the season", prompt, friendly, and courteous service is pretty much a guarantee.

Three of us had dinner at the University Grill on 9/21/16. My chicken parmesan was excellent. My wife and my Mom both had Haddock and thoroughly enjoyed their meals. Amy provided excellent and attentive service for us. Oh, and check out the crab bisque soup, it's excellent. The tab for the three of us including wine was about $90. That's... More

We have eaten dinner at University Grill several times with friends and have never been disappointed. Food can be a little salty which makes my feet swell(not sure if they use MSG or one of it's many close chemicals in their cooking....)Wait staff not as happy or friendly as some other restaurants we frequent but adequate.

Stopped by for dinner on Friday night and was greeted and promptly seated. Paul, our server, was attentive, very personable with a great disposition. I ordered prime rib and Paul checked to make sure there was some left. He stated that the end piece was available. When it arrived, I was kind of dubious since it looked like a small... More

We did the early bird special. I had sirloin steak with real! mashed potatoes and a caesar salad. The waitress, Nikki asked if I liked anchovies... I do, so anchovies topped the caesar salad. A very nice touch in my opinion, if you like anchovies. The steak was tender, juicy and tasty. Done very well and a nice proportion size... 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.
