The grouper sandwich is the best and typically what I order here. The service is great even though it’s always so busy!

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.
