In my previous review , I wrote about a horrid dinner experience at Witherspoon Grill. A friend who goes there a lot said you just had to know what to order. We were invited again, reluctantly to this establishment, and I plan just to have water. But, "the friend" insisted I try the French toast. Delicious! 8 hot dogs size... More

Six adult family members from all over connected in Princeton, NJ this weekend, and met at Witherspoon Grill at 2:30pm on a Sunday. We just squeaked into the brunch hour (ends at 3pm). The food was universally enjoyed - from lobster bisque, to an angus burger, grilled chicken sandwich, etc. I personally enjoyed the spinach salad and have to say... More

A .little overpriced, but otherwise a great spot in a town that needs more good restaurants. Friendly bartenders, good food, pleasant hosts, very comfortable environment. Fabulous if expensive hamburger and lobster mac and cheese. Need a better outdoor "drinks only" area.

we visited Princeton NJ this past weekend and dined at the Witherspoon for lunch and dinner. The food was excellent, the service was top notch, the drinks were perfect and the atmosphere was wonderful. You must eat here if you're in he area. A bit pricey but I firmly believe you get that you pay for. This place nails it!

I had lunch here on a saturday afternoon. Parking is tricky but if you don't mind walking, you can find meters a few blocks away. The food is average, service very good for a busy place. Cocktails were tasty!

Witherspoon Grill is a very good restaurant in Princeton. It serves a lot of fresh food and their crab cakes are excellent. Steaks are also a must there. Service is extremely friendly and attentive which is always a plus. Enjoy!

As a Brit, it's sometimes tough to praise somewhere which competes with your home produce. That said, credit where credit is due and I cannot fault the Witherspoon. Being in Princeton on business, and with a wide variety of local eateries to choose from, I enjoyed the food here so much I ended up eating here 2 nights on the... More

My husband and I had dinner hear a few weeks ago and I thought the food was very tasty and well prepared. It is a bit pricey so not an everyday place but do intend to return occassionally. It is busy and noisy, but I will take that any day over tired chain restaurant fare.
