We decided to try some place new. And we were really impressed. The Crab bisque was fantastic. The lobster was cooked to perfection. Escargot was very good as well. The Prime rib was flavorfully delicious! We will return!!

Great relaxing dinner spot. Good value with reliably good food and beverages. Popular spot with the older crowd and especially busy when the snowbirds are in town. Love the Eddie Cooks Italian nights

Tried this place a few times and it slowly got worse, I believe it needs some competition as it's got a great location. Interior is reasonable smart but slow indifferent service and poor food makes it one to miss.

First of all the food is better than just good. Most times its is awesome. Being across from the Barbara B. Mann Venue it is puzzling to have a packed house and one bartender. I have seen many of people walk out. Also for 3:00PM...More

Despite one of the Managers being a vegan they have no vegan options on the menu. Go figure! But ask and they will offer to make you a pasta dish with mixed vegetables with a delicious sauce. Dish is very tasty, but have to... More

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.
