3 of us had a late morning birthday breakfast on the day after Thanksgiving. I first felt bad that we did not go to PJ's Pancake House but as we parked in the nearby local garage and were also waiting for someone else to show this place seemed best. PJ's also had a line for seating. We were pleasantly surprised... More

Poor Thanksgiving food selection and quality--and poor service. Got kicked out by the hostess before eating our desserts due to 90 min limit even though no one appeared to be waiting for the next seating. Weren't even offered coffee, tea, etc. Luckily, we asked for packaging or else we would have needed to leave our untouched desserts behind. Worse yet,... More

The food was typical bar food. There was nothing special about it. It was convenient for guests staying at Nassau Inn.

Came here a few times with friend and family. Old historic bar and pub. Meals are pretty decent and the beer and liquor selection is very good. Nice meet up place as well.

This is a great pub with nice patio at the Nassau Inn. Food was very good and the service was as well. Good for family or to grab a pint with friends.

Great place for a beer and some great conversation. I love the wall of the notable alumni, it was so interesting to explore. I have lived in this area in a while but this was my first time here, not my last!

A nice bar, cool, dark and comfortable. It provides a refuge from the touristy madness of Nassau Street. Plus, you can use the nice, clean hotel restrooms. However, the main reason to go in is the presence behind the bar of one of Norman Rockwell's masterpieces. The depiction of "Yankee Doodle" is wonderful- full of humor and the wry observations...

Good place to congregate after a wedding reception. Good beer selection as well. I might even come here for fun on another occasion.

Food for every taste - meat, vegetarian and gluten free options. Great service. Wall of famous Princeton U grads were fun. Didn't find where Einstein sat. Colonial decor and booths very cozy and comfortable.

We went here just after we arrived in Princeton. Both really tired, we ordered mac and cheese. We found it a bit boring, it didn't taste much. Helped with lot's of pepper though! However, I am sure that the place has much more to offer, so we would go back!
