The restaurant is on the first floor of the Shippen Hotel where we stayed for multiple days. While we would highly recommend the hotel I'd say the University Grill was a highlight of our stay. The restaurant seemed to be pretty popular with the locals, at one point when we arrived back to the hotel the line for the restaurant... More

I will be back. Love... 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
