I’ve dined here a couple times before but decided to try their Nassau burger. Their blend of ground brisket, short rib and chuck was tasty - same with their fries! I’d certainly order that again!

We ate at the Tap Room after a tour of the university. It's located about one block from the entrance to the university and is part of the Nassau Inn hotel. It is on a small street which is lined with quaint shops. Very nice...More

We enjoyed a very tasty dinner at this historic restaurant and tavern. Great menu selections, wines and beers. Our waiter ("Matt") was superb. We'll be sure to dine here again upon our return to the area. Highly recommended if you visit Princeton, NJ.

For an early dinner with a large family group I had the Pan-Seared Scallops with lump crab risotto. Looked great, tasted so-so (I’m guessing the scallops had been frozen, and the crab was lost in the risotto/asparagus/tomato mix). Everyone else, including a couple who had...More

We didn't eat while we were here, just had some beers. It is an old-fashioned British type pub with a decent beer selection and a wall of photos of Princeton graduates. It's a good place to pop in for a few drinks.
