Really like a New York City steakhouse without going to NYC. While the beef is excellent, so is the seafood. However, the star of the show is the porterhouse steak for two--a bit pricey, but not if you think of it as two dinners. Add a shrimp or crabmeat cocktail, the freshest oysters or creamed spinach, and there it is--as... More

This restaurant has a nice selection of items on their menu and is consistently very good. We have always had a very good experience when dining here and have made it a choice to dine for graduation.

Hosted visiting friends at Witherspoon Grill recently and all four meals were very good. One of the specials was roasted turkey with mashed potatoes and gravy and it was excellent. Of special note was the cranberry sauce side which was smooth and delicious. From the salads to the desserts ...it was an excellent meal.

Wonderful place in Princeton! Fantastic drinks, delicious food, especially the steaks tips and the best crab cakes! The banana foster and the bread pudding are great deserts! A little pricey but worth the money. Make reservations!

Three high school friends all drove an hour to meet up -- Witherspoon Grill was picked as our meeting place. None of had been to Princeton, so the restaurant was a guess. Lunch was fantastic. Service was great. Atmosphere was perfect and we were never rushed even though it was crowded. My steak salad was perfect. The crab cake looked... More

Met with some business colleagues on a Tuesday night and headed to this restaurant after a recommendation. It was definitely a good choice. Excellent and attentive staff, glorious food and a great wine selection (although on the pricey side). Colleagues ate Tuna, Steak whilst I went for the Shrimp Pasta dish. All agreed that food was excellent. Recommended.

We had a very nice, not rushed lunch with out if town friends. The food was delicious and the wait staff very friendly. On a busy Sunday we were delighted not to be hurried. Have been back a couple of times since. We will definitely go back many more times. Make reservations for dinner.

This restaurant never disappoints! Had dinner this past weekend with my husband and our good friends. Everything was delicious and service was awesome. The lobster risotto was perfect and the seafood tower was so fresh. Can't wait to go back.

Thank MECL
