I visited the Union Grill around 5 pm and I wanted to eat a pre-dinner. There was no other customers but it still took a long time(about 25 mins) to prepare my simple meal, a salmon sandwich. Maybe it's a special occasion when I visit, but I cannot imagine how long you gonna wait if you choose a kind meal... More

We went on a Thursday afternoon. No problem being seated at 4 pm, but they were starting to get busy at 5 pm. We began our meal with the Mediterranean veggie platter. This was fresh, tasty, and filling. For our entrees, my son had the French dip and slaw, which was plentiful and delicious. I had the mahi taco. It... More

The Union Grill has a huge menu where everyone will be able to find something they like. I had the Caesar salad with salmon (blackened seasoning was not spicy) and the French dip - both were delicious! Service was friendly. Full bar. I look forward to going back in the future to try out more menu items.

We had just visited CMOA and a friend said they wanted to take us to lunch at this great little place up the street. We walked 2 minutes up the street to the Union Grill. For a Sunday afternoon I was surprised at how busy and packed the place was. They have an extensive menu. I was debating between a... More

Ate here while at Pitt campus for a basketball game. Drove around a bit before finding a parking spot a few blocks away. Weather was great on this day so the 10 min walk from car to restaurant was nice. Food was great and big portions , Fish Taco was more like a burrito. It was lunch time so drank... More

Took a colleague out to dinner--Union Grill was recommended by the hotel where he was staying. To be honest, I hadn't heard of this place even though it's fairly close to my office. We had a very good experience. We got their at around 7:20 on a Friday night and the place was packed. We were told that we'd have... More

We stopped at Union Grill due to its location near Carnegie Mellon University's campus, and we were surprised by how great the food is. I ordered a salad, which was massive and covered with a delicious variety of toppings. Coworkers say the drinks are great too. The interior of the restaurant contains a bar area and some tight seating arrangements,... More

I have eaten here twice and have been amazed by the quality of the food and the service. It's a great campus restaurant, very casual and fun. The atmosphere is conducive to great socializing with the proper mix of music and customer traffic. I recommend the fish taco, it is absolutely awesome.

Very good meal. Large portions- especially the fish sandwich! Not a huge list of menu items, but enough that everyone found something they wanted. A small selection of draft beers with a few good local choices. Cool atmosphere with lots of old pictures of the local area from throughout the last century- add in some friendly locals that could tell... More

We were visiting our grandchildren who are college students and we always take them out to eat. A friend recommended Union Grill so we decided to try it out. Two of us ordered the Rueban Sandwich and said it was excellent. Another ordered the grilled salmon sandwich and I ordered the Veggie Melt. The other three ordered the Waffle Fries... More
