This is a very nice restaurant for early dining. It has an excellent menu at very reasonable prices. Very good bar and an excellent wine list. If you come for the full dinner the selection becomes even greater and better. Nice ambience.

Prices are in line for the quality of the food. More expensive than Applebees or Olive Garden, but much better food and service. Well worth the extra 2-3 dollars.

Description
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.
