Good meal and convenient in the Nassau Inn

This restaurant is conveniently located in the Nassau Inn right in the heart of Princeton. Great location. Food was average. My hamburger didn't have much taste to it. The wings were good and meaty. Fries were crispy and fresh. Crab cakes were delicious. The service was very slow, even though... read more

After a hell-atious experience at another Princeton restaurant, we had a late nite (10:30 pm) supper at the Tap Room and it was fabulous, prompt and tasty.

My mom and I ate lunch outside. The service was quick and friendly. We both ordered salads. I had steak on mine, which was cooked exactly how I asked. Everything was good, we got exactly what we ordered. Regular food menu items, I would have rated this place higher if there were a few unique items to choose from.

My two daughters and I enjoyed a relaxing dinner at the Yankee Doodle Tap Room on a Tuesday evening around 6pm. We were visiting the area to go on a tour of Princeton the next day. Both the hotel and the restaurant are in walking distance to the campus. Chose the Yankee Doodle Tap Room due to the convenient location... More

Always a great place for a quick meal, Best hamburgers in town. The setting is pure 1930's rustic and comfortable. And if you like Rockwell, his huge fresco behind the bar adds a great touch.

Great bar steeped in history. Good draft selection and robust liquor choices. Right in the middle of the Princeton scene. John Ryan was of particular note.

Very scenic and quality service. Had a decent selection of beers and John Ryan, bar tender, was fantastic. The monster mug deal is a great deal.

Have been to the Tap Room many times over the years. Love the photos of prominent Princeton graduates posted on the wall. The scarred tables and dark interior always strike me as holding some serious secret meetings. There is even a beautiful painting over the bar that evokes the same feeling. However, outside, there is a lovely patio with warming... More

We visited the Yankee Doodle Tap Room during our self-guided walking tour of Princeton (free download from Princeton Genius Tours). Well worth the trip if only to enjoy drinks. It is located right in the middle of town across the street from Princeton University’s main campus. This taproom was the favorite hangout of Albert Einstein and his fellow genius friends.... More
