My wife and I had a wonderful experience at University Grill. Our waiter Paul was outstanding. Friendly, accommodating, experienced in the menu and willing to offer suggestions. Our food was excellent. My wife had the Salmon and I had the Chicken Parmesan - both of which were prepared to perfection. Bartender's drinks were perfect! Would highly recommend.

The crab bisque, bread, ceaser salad, and my GO TO DISH, black n white sesame crusted TUNA was spot on. The tuna is now served over Quinoa, what a bonus. Service was outstanding.

My wife and 2 other couples stopped at Univ. Grill for dinner last night and were very disappointed. We both ordered the Sunday roast beef special. Both of us felt it was on of the worst pieces of roast beef we've ever had. We've been to University Grill before, although not recently, mostly for lunch, and found that it was... 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.
