Loved the service from Billy. He made us feel welcome. University Grill has the best Crab Bisque I've ever had.

Except for the wonderful wait staff, we don't understand the appeal of this restaurant. We've been twice, once for lunch and once for dinner and were disappointed both times. Perhaps if we had taken more advantage of the happy hour that they offer, we wouldn't have noticed the ho-hum quality of the food or felt that management isn't really trying.

This is a beautiful restaurant with high quality food. We arrived for an early dinner after an afternoon ball game, so we were under-dressed; no matter, the service was friendly and attentive. They have an extensive selection of seafood as well as standard menu items. Their "early dining" menu was a perfect fit for us (but note, the online menus... More

The University Grill must be a hit with tourists. On the evening we were there, the place had a line outside by 6PM. They do boast an early dining menu. The portions were average and so was the service. There was nothing noteworthy or outstanding about this place. One of the things going for it is the restaurant's proximity to... More

We were a group of 6 on a very busy night but our server, Laura, was wonderful. We never felt rushed and she handled our separate bills with ease. The Boston Baked Haddock is the best around, and the Sesame Crusted Ahi Tuna is perfection. Go and Enjoy!

Early bird special is great value. . . food is very good and pricing is incredible. Service always excellent (Gavin was an extraordinarily gracious and superb waiter) . Marvelous spot for early dinner after Red Sox games.

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.
