Disappointed

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... read more

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

Large bar and great place to meet people. The food and drinks are great. Just a very inviting place to have a good time with friends.

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

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

Just pulling up to this place, I was in love with it. Outdoor seating, cool lounges, an awesome waiting system - they use your cell phone to tell you when your table is ready and it includes games that make the time go by faster - and a great vibe inside the restaurant. We loved sitting in a high booth.... More

We've been going to the Princeton for a number of years, and have never had a bad experience. The beer selection is decent, as is the food. Don't expect great deals here, because this is a resort community - this place, though, attracts a lot of locals,especially in the afternoon. If possible, try it during the off-season when they are... More

Atmosphere is awesome and the people are very nice. Food is overpriced for average taste (despite description sounding great). Beer selection is fine unless you want true craft beers. Go for drinks an an app but don't buy the pricy options.
