My wife and I had eaten here before so while in this area again we decided to go back to the University Grille. The food was OK not as good as it was the first time, but that could have been our choices. They had a pizza special night and it was only so so, the Cuban Sandwich was very... More

Stopped in for lunch. We each had a sandwich-- a Rachel and a Reuben. They were OK but could have used a little more time on the grill. But the fries were good and the waitress was attentive and the price was right.

The restaurant is on the first floor of the Shippen Hotel where we stayed for multiple days. While we would highly recommend the hotel I'd say the University Grill was a highlight of our stay. The restaurant seemed to be pretty popular with the locals, at one point when we arrived back to the hotel the line for the restaurant... More

The food is great and you get a lot. Not a very big restaurant . If you go in the evening go early and if it happens to be family day at the Shippensburg University be prepared to wait.

January 14th, 2017. I met dear friends from Harrisburg at the Grille for lunch. Ashley graciously served us drinks and our lunch. I had Harp's Beer, the signature Tomato Bisque Soup, and Rachel Sandwich. As the Germans say in Heidelberg, "meine Mahlzeit war sehr lecker!" My meal was very tasty! My friends loved their meals. I will be back. Love... More

But get there early if your idea of steak is prime rib - it goes early on Steak Night. Filet was really tender, the NY strip a bit tough but still a good deal. And you get 10% off in addition if you are staying at the hotel. Magic Hat pint is reasonably priced - the wine is a bit... More

Excellent location....(inside the Shippen Place Hotel) food and service. Has an outdoor seating area, which the first night, the perfect to sit outside. The inside of the restaurant offers a great ambiance setting.
