My husband and I stopped here for an early dinner and had a great meal and service! We enjoyed the crab bisque, chicken Marsala and the scallops, which were all delicious! Also loved the Old Fashioned from the bar. Our server, Hilary, was fantastic at...giving great recommendations for dinner and also took the time to write down some other local places to stop while we were visiting after we asked for suggestions. Loved her personality — she made it a great dining experience!More

The haddock was well prepared in fact it reminds us of haddock dinners back in the northeast. Ask for Scott as your server on your next visit.

University Grill is a great place to go for a great meal! The atmosphere is relaxing, The food is excellent! And the staff is friendly and attentive, making the dining experience a pleasure. We have had the fortune of having Hilary serve us on our...last 2 visits. She is absolutely a gem! She is attentive to every need, friendly to talk to and makes us feel as if we are the only people she is serving, and just excellent in making our dinner a wonderful experience. We felt lucky to have her again and found out that we can ask to be seated at her tables.....which we will definitely do when we come in again. She made the experience so great that I wanted to share it with everyone. Looking forward to our next visit!More

We were a group of nine. Seating was fairly prompt. The server was excellent. We had Crab Bisque, Sausage and White Bean Soup, Rhode Island Fried Calamari Tossed with crushed red peppers and banana peppers, served with chipotle mayonnaise, Crostini house made fig jam, goat...cheese, prosciutto and fig balsamic glaze, Escargot Champignon Baked with garlic butter and mushroom, Bruschetta thinly sliced bread, toasted with mozzarella cheese, topped with diced tomatoes in a garlic and olive oil marinade with fresh basil. For entrees we had Boneless Prime Rib of Beef au jus Fri-Sun 8 oz. or 12 oz. choice aged beef, dry rubbed, slow cooked, roasted rib eye, Godfather Style Seafood mussels, grouper, scallops, shrimp with sun-dried tomatoes, basil in a spicy cream sauce served over linguini, Sesame Crusted Tuna 4 oz. yellowfin, seared rare and sliced with teriyaki glaze, wasabi and pickled ginger over vegetable quinoa and 3 items which do not show up on the online menu, Shrimp Scampi, Chicken Milanese, and a haddock with stuffing. All the appetizers were good with extra marks given to the Crab Bisque and Crostini. The one downside was that we thought the helping of Calamari was a little on the puny side. The entrees were good with two exceptions - the prime rib was not as tender as anticipated and the haddock (which was cooked very nicely and hot) was served with just barely warm broccoli. Add to that the stuffing was lackluster. The big mistake of the day was that the server took 9 orders to the kitchen and for some reason the kitchen decided to cook only eight. We have been here before and will come back. It's too bad that our guests that were here for the first time had to experience any of this.More
