Always busy

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!

Ignored at the bar, slow to be seated. Slow to have orders taken. Warm bread, frozen butter. Food nothing special, especially for the price. Fries inconsistent, small serving. Other than location and decor in an expensive resort town. You have much better options.

We originally came here for a drink and ended up having such great bartenders that we stayed there and ordered food at the bar. The food was ok but the service and atmosphere was amazing.

This place should stick to being a bar. Everything we ordered from the menu was horrible and overpriced even by AV standards. What a joke.

The Princeton is the best place to go to hangout outside and reconnect with friends and family. The place is huge and there is outside and inside seating. The food is average but most people go here because of the scene and the atmosphere. If you are over 40, make sure you are out of the place by 10pm because... More

While we had visited the Circle Tavern several times, we had never been in the Princeton before. Apparently this company owns the whole block. They have a lovely outdoor seating area but it was rainy on the evening that we visited. Still, they had the doors thrown open to allow in a lovely breeze. It was a happening place on... More

First Cosmo the best ever. Next two I ordered I sent back. They were terrible. Mongolian beef was chewy and awful. Tasted like it was a Stouffers frozen entree. Our son got fish tacos and he let me have one since my food was so terrible and they were great. Very hit and miss. Service was good though. Wouldn't rush... More

There are plenty of other places to eat in Avalon and Stone Harbor. I wish we had tried somewhere else. We were originally seated right in front of the large screen t.v. The restaurant only had a few tables filled and guys sitting at the bar. I felt like we were on display, so I asked to be moved to... More
