Good Service on a Saturday Night

Eight of us went to The Princeton on a Saturday night in August. They take your cell number and have an app that links you to their menu and counts down your wait time for the table. They text you when the table is ready. It was a nice feature. The wait time (about 20 min.) was surprisingly short... read more

Beautifully designed bar/restaurant. We mostly did appetizers and drinks. All good! With the slide open doors, you feel like you outside even if you are inside. The sofa seating outside is particularly enjoyable on a pretty night for drinks and conversation!

With the abundance of servers and the absolute absence of service this is what happens when management realizes that they are possibly the only show in town. If you are cattle or like being treated as cattle I would recommend this fine establishment. Couple additional points to consider I would also recommend not sitting under an HVAC register to insure... More

We went to an early dinner at the Princeton Bar & Grill, and chose to eat outside. The restaurant looked inviting, but the service and the menu are seriously lacking. Our server was impolite, if not bordering on rude. The menu selections are limited, however, the crab soup, the baked brie were extraordinary. the NY strip steak was not a... More

Overall a decent meal. Sandwiches and burgers come without a side, you have to order fries separately. The portions were on the small side, my two teenagers and husband left still hungry. The mussels and oysters were fresh and tasty. The bathrooms are AMAZING! Nicest restaurant bathrooms ever! Expensive overall for amount of food and quality, but that's really what... More

I've been to the Princeton numerous times and i think I decided to stick with basics in terms of food (burgers, apps etc). The Mongolian beef was not great, but the guacamole, spring rolls, and Ahi Tuna were great. The drinks are delicious and our waitress was fantastic. The staff as a whole are very nice and accommodating. I will... More

Went here with my family one night and enjoyed it so much that we came back for a second. We tried all of the East Coast Oysters on the first night and all of the West Coast Oysters the second night. While I am still an amateur oyster taster myself, I was thoroughly impressed with the variety and the quality!... More

Primarily a bar but a nice place to grab a casual dinner. Burgers, salads, and apps are your best bet. They have Summer Shandy on tap....which is super delicious on a hot summer evening!
