We went with another couple for dinner on a Friday night. I did make reservations, but it wasn't super crowded. Love the old historic feel of the place. Minimal menu selection, but everyone liked their food. I chose the vegetarian option and the plantain was...More

I love to sit in the booths with family and order breakfast, a simple burger or a fancy dinner. The dining room has it all. The food is great and the Yankee Doodle bar area has sports shows going and a fun vibe, too

We did not have fabulous food or very attentive service here and yet, we loved it. We were tired and hungry and hot. I almost always opt for outdoor seating, which would have been nice overlooking the Palmer Square, but it was so oppressively hot...More

I had the princetonian burger with brisket and chorizo. It inspired me to make our own burger meat. The burger was good, but not as good as my farm raised burger in VT. The beers were good. I had the sour monkey, hubs had the...More
