It was strictly an okay pizza and buger sports bar. There is a rumor around town that it is going to be transformed into a new theme and will no longer be a sports bar. So, check before you go in the upcoming weeks to see what's up with the place.

Well, there's only one reason you might want to go to this restaurant/bar. For a noisy, crazy sport-themed time with food that is not terrible. IT's not good, but I can't say it is terrible. So, if you want to be festive in a sports kind of way with a million monitors around you, then this is the loud place... More

This is a sports bar which does not subscribe to many sports channels - so even games of local teams (like the Phillies) are not available. Really. As in "Sorry, we don't get those channels." The prices are expensive and deceitful - there was a special on the wall that says Bud bottles 2 for 5$ or something like that... More

This place is really good for its daily specials. The food is average and the drinks are a little bit pricey. This is really the only place to watch sports. There is no way else that has as many TVs. Overall, it's not entirely too bad. You just have to milk the specials.

We think this bar has potential and we really wanted to like it but it seems the few tiems we stopped in here for lunch during football season, the place is always empty. It is unfortunate too, that the food is just mediocre because it is a good looking bar with plenty of tables and tvs, and good beer prices... More

First let me say, they are trying really hard at the "Grille", to gvie the customer a worthwhile experience. The place is clean, bright with plenty of flat screens. The waitresses in tight outfits are very solicitous and professional. But the some old Princeton conundrum , in my humble opinion. Too much money for predestrian food. I am sure parking... More

Comfortable casual setting, young crowd, we were there with several kids attending the TriState Lacrossse Tournament. We ate dinner early (before it turns into night spot). We didn't want a chain restaurant, wanted a local place to get a feel for the community. Reasonably priced, good food, nice location across from Princeton campus.

If you want to watch a sporting event at a bar in Princeton, this is where you'll be going, like it or not. I have mixed feelings about the place...the staff is friendly and capable, the location is excellent, the atmosphere is nothing to complain about, nice and roomy...the food is nothing to complain about either. Perfectly acceptable burgers, bar... More

The manager has been so accommodating to our group- the smaller steering committee met here for dinner and had a great time. We then scheduled 2 large cocktail type meetings and it went very well. Food is good and well priced, beer is great. Excellent happy hour pricing. Check it out!
