Once of my favorite restaurants for prime rib (among other things). Last night we had a waitress names 'Stormie'. The place was packed for Mothers Day. Stormie was just unbelievable. She was friendly, professional, efficient, and overall a '10'.

Everything is good. Crunchy Grouper is always my favorite. They do a great wedge salad. Pleasant atmosphere. And it’s near the Barbra B. Mann Center for Performing Arts.

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.
