This is a beautiful restaurant with high quality food. We arrived for an early dinner after an afternoon ball game, so we were under-dressed; no matter, the service was friendly and attentive. They have an extensive selection of seafood as well as standard menu items. Their "early dining" menu was a perfect fit for us (but note, the online menus... More

The University Grill must be a hit with tourists. On the evening we were there, the place had a line outside by 6PM. They do boast an early dining menu. The portions were average and so was the service. There was nothing noteworthy or outstanding about this place. One of the things going for it is the restaurant's proximity to... More

We were a group of 6 on a very busy night but our server, Laura, was wonderful. We never felt rushed and she handled our separate bills with ease. The Boston Baked Haddock is the best around, and the Sesame Crusted Ahi Tuna is perfection. Go and Enjoy!

Early bird special is great value. . . food is very good and pricing is incredible. Service always excellent (Gavin was an extraordinarily gracious and superb waiter) . Marvelous spot for early dinner after Red Sox games.

We had hail kale salad, an excellent choice! Our server, Billy, was the best. He encouraged us to return for other healthy food, and we will.

The restaurant is very popular with locals and tourists hence large crowds and long wait times but you can sit at the bar and order from the full menu which is what we did. You can also order a drink and sit on the patio until your table is ready. Our bartender/waitress was fantastic and handled drinks, appetizers, and dinner....no... More

Restaurant is across from Barbara B Mann so after a show was looking for a place to eat. I am so glad we discovered Universtiy Grill. The food was fabulous and we did early dining, so the price was even better. Will definitely be going back for lunch, early dining and dinner. It's a must try. Had the Haddock with... More

I was SO impressed with the food, service, and crowd flow. The early evening we dined here, they were over capacity due to a show at the Barbara Mann. I had the Ritz Cracker crusted Haddock (their specialty) and it was FABULOUS. They agreed to replace the starch to veggies for my meal. The veggies were wonderful. This restaurant knows... 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.
