I'd chock this up to going in late, but it was 9 pm on a Saturday night. We go in for dinner sit down and wait... Finally the server decides to come take our order. They were accommodating by being able to whip up a chicken sandwich and ham and cheese which were not on the menu, so that was... More

We stopped here because we couldn't decide where to go. We ate out on the patio which was nice. Hamburgers were delicious. Steal salad was good. Pasta wasn't as good. Lots to choose from and reasonable price.

What a quaint hangout -- so many distingushed people have haunted this place. We had a nice dinner. The food was interesting and flavorful -- it's not the typical bland hotel food. The service was casual but still well-mannered, a reflection of the Ive League?

We went this past Saturday. We sat outside. The waitress came over about ten minutes with three glasses of water, there was four of us. She then came back with another. She came back about 10-15 minutes later and asked for the order. Then we sat and waited and waited and waited. We were all done with our water and... More

Yankee Doodle tap room is located inside the Nassau Inn. The pub is pretty dark inside, but they have a decent happy hour and the apps we've ordered every time have been great. Save some time and order at the bar because servers are few and far between (and may even just be the bartender at times.) we usually arrive... More

We ordered drinks and an appetizer, calamari, which was very tasty. Shortly after our server received a large party and the service level fell sharply. But we ordered dinner, steak and sea bass, When it finally came it was hot and better than we were expecting. We weren't in a hurry, but the waiting for our server was annoying. Sitting... More

A group of friends arranged a brunch here this past weekend, and when we walked in we were interested in the unique environment - it was dark, but still cozy and provided good atmosphere for catching up. Unfortunately, I wasn't blown away with the menu. I got the breakfast pita and my husband got the country benedict. The pita dish... More

Dark and relatively boring. For some reason, even though it is in prestigious downtown Princeton, it seems a little divey... sorry but it lacks what should be in this hotel. Okay normal food, but nothing was excellent. Service likewise, rather bland.

Service lousy. Bartender was more interested in something in the back room. When asked about the history he was mute.

We ate here while staying at the Nassau Inn and enjoyed both dinner and breakfast at the Yankee Doodle Tap Room. One of us is vegetarian and they are very accommodating. Prices are very fair and the service is great.
