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.

University Grill in Ft. Myers FL always represents GOOD food and excellent service. The presentation of each meal is delightful and the staff is very well trained. Our favorite waitress, Lee, is always in demand. When making a reservation we ask for her area. She is up beat, knowledgeable and ever so friendly and helpful. The prices are perfectly in line with the excellent food. Highly recommend both lunch and dinner. You will never go wrong by making a reservation at University Grill.

We went there last night and had one of the best dining experiences that we've had in a long time. I was impressed with not only my meal, the Boston baked Haddock, but also with our server, Sandra. She was not only warm and genuine but very attentive throughout the entire meal. Her personality definitely charmed us and made the whole experience exceptional for a Thursday night out!

We were celebrating our engagement and decided to return to the scene of our first date: University Grill. All we remembered from our first visit was how nervous we were, this time we could focus on the food. This place is a nice American style restaurant with a sort of neighborhood pub style of decor. The menu is a mix of many “fan favorites” crossing over meats, seafoods, salads and pastas. There is something here to satisfy most diners. The prices are also very fair considering the food quality. Our choices included: coconut shrimp and caprese for appetizers (both excellent), crab bisque for soup (outrageously decadent), Boston haddock (very good) and sea scallops (awesome). Our server was a perfect mix of efficiency and social graces. This place is very good at what they do. If you haven’t been, give it a shot!!
