The Witherspoon Grill has a typical American menu with steaks (very good ones), fish, chicken and other specialties. The food is very good, as is the service. The restaurant is a bit noisy and always crowded. Reservations are recommended. It is walking distance from the University.

I have eaten at the Witherspoon Grill a few times and the food has been consistently been very good to excellent. The problem is that the restaurant is quite noisy and the service can be atrocious. In my opinion, this is a restaurant with very good food in a small town with prices comparable to better restaurants in large cities... More

This is our go-to date night, business dinner, and business lunch location in Princeton. The food is always good, and they have the best cobb salad I've had anywhere (and I travel a lot!). Their signature burger is also worth the calories. The food is always prepared well with nothing surprising which can be a nice thing after a day... More

Nice mid-range steakhouse atmosphere: lots of chrome and wood. Solid service. Nothing on the menu is bad; though its not a first-class steakhouse. Order on the low end of the menu, and you'll likely be delighted.

Withspoon Grill has the potential to be amazing. The location is prime and has the best outdoor seating in Princeton. However the food is nothing but meat and potatoes and some seafood. If that's your thing, maybe you'll like it but it seems very overpriced for boring food to me. There is nothing for vegans. Restaurants like this need to... More

Outdoor seating available -heaters outside. Great atmosphere noise moderate no problem. Service did not rush you and when you needed them they were there. Had smoked salmon club -good size and excellent also... More

One of the best burgers in the area. Seafood tower for two is really good as well. Park in the structure next door by the library.

Ok, so I think that anything you order here will be great. I once had a Mushroom Risotto here and I thought for sure I was in heaven. Last visit I ordered a hamburger. I think that these are probably the best, most tasty hamburgers around. Love the fries too. I find that the staff is very attentive and informative.... More
