This place has a real historic atmosphere and exudes Princeton Uni - photos of alumni, sports stars make it a place for the graduates who have never really left. Lovely log fire in winter. Great as a bar but pretty average as a restaurant.

The first night of my stay, the bartender gave me great service. The next morning, breakfast took more than 15 minutes to come out. One night after dinner, I ordered wine and a cheese plate to go up to my room and continue working. All two servers AND the bartender asked me individually TWICE what I was waiting for. It... More

Food is good and reasonable. Very impressive wall with pictures of the historic people who have graduated from Princeton. Great place both for a date as well as a family gathering

The decor, atmosphere, and menu of this restaurant appealed as a place to purchase a $200.00 gift card for my seminary student son and his wife. The restaurant's website advertised the opportunity to purchase gift cards by placing a toll free call to the establishment-no shipping charges for sending the cards to the recipient! My call from an out of... More

A charming little pub located in the Nassau Inn. The cheeseburger had a wonderful flavor and my wife's curry was pretty good. The side dish of mac n cheese was abundant but devoid of flavor. They have a nice variety of draft beers and the service was adequate. I think its worth a visit.

On Oct. 17, two of us went to the Tap Room for a light dinner. The establishment was not busy. As we were being shown to our booth, a mouse who was already dining there scurried off into the wall, apparently disturbed by our presence. The hostess smiled and suggested that we might prefer a table. Since my companion had... More

The Tap Room is the best aspect of the historic Nassau Inn. Charming college town ambience, replete with tables carved into by generations (including Einstein himself somewhere) but marred by what appears to be unionized staffing with a lack of focus on customer service. Stick to drinks and burgers and you'll do just fine.

we went to the patio dining area of the Tap Room to enjoy outdoor dining while we still could. We arrived at 5:15 pm. After 15 minutes we finally were able to order. I ordered gazpacho soup which was delicious and a Greek salad which wasn't a greek salad. The salad leaves were for a regular salad not a Greek... More

We recently dined at this restaurant with a wedding group. I think we went there because of its history, with its dark walls and historical pictures it did remind me of colonial Williamsburg . It has a very large original Norman Rockwell over the bar which was worth the trip to me. The menu was quite small but a bit... More
