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.

Ate here with family and was pleasantly pleased. The food was good, and even with a party of 12, the orders were all correct. The food was cooked as requested and was hot when served, even, again, with 12 people. We sat by the window and was privileged to see a police on a bicycle stop a car and give... More

I have been to the university grille approximately 6 times simply because friends and co-workers had deemed this the spot we would be dining at for the evening or afternoon. Now, the manager seems nice enough and for the most part so does the staff.... the problem is they are never around enough or minding our tables enough to serve... More

The place is trying to be more than it is. The food is solid and the plating is nice, but the presentation and price seems to be overreaching what it really serves. The servers are quick and friendly. The atmosphere would be greatly improved by removing the creepy photos (having the eyes of past university presidents watch you eat is... More

Lived in Ship for over a year now and haven't eaten here yet. All you can eat crab legs drew us in on a Friday night. We were seated outside without being asked which was no big deal even though the temp outside was 91 degrees. My wife got a steak and waffle fries which were very tasty. The crab... More
