Went for lunch with our family on our 40th Anniversary and were very pleased. Good appetizers (calamari & oysters) and a varied menu to choose from. Owned by a company that also owns a seafood market in town so it's fresh. Also, nice to have a Children's menu. Lunch was varied from a veggie sandwich, barbecue sandwich, salads and fish.... More

Excellent food, very good service and a great location situated in a large courtyard. I have been to this restaurant several times and each visit has been a lovely experience.

A lovely restaurant with a Broad menu and great wine list for lunch or dinner. In good weather, a great place to sit outdoors and watch the scene.

Came here with friends and sat outside. Very pleasant. Service was reasonable and friendly. Food was tasty but nothing special. Just good honest food and fresh ingredients. Nice wine list and good selection of food. Would return and recommend, though it is a little expensive for what it delivers

This is a popular place in Princeton, nice atmosphere, close to parking garage. Service is great. Food is decent, although we expected more. Prices are a little high but they are average for Princeton. I had the steak (it was ok) and my husband had the lamb chops which were delicious. We had the potatoes as a side which we... More

Always have a good time there! Atmosphere is nice and cosy... recommend having the spinach dip for a starter and the strip steak as main course... a walk in Palm square after eating is also always nice to digestion...

Witherspoon Grill has what my guest characterized as "an elementary menu," though we decided to take advantage of an outdoor table on a nice day. Preparations are tasty, but it took a long time for drinks, and then the food to arrive. Nearby are alternatives with creative and delicious alternatives. Inside is noisy.

It was our first trip to the Witherspoon Grill. One of our party asked for a burger rare and it came well done. She ate hardly any of it and we brought the rest home for my dog. The creamed spinach and macaroni and cheese sides were really good, however, having to pay for them a la carte made the... More

The atmosphere at Witherspoon Grill is bustling and lively. It can be a bit noisy. While the salads and seafood are terrific, the strip steak I had had about 20 per cent grizzle. For the rather steep price it should have been great. It was perfectly cooked; it just wasn't a very good cut. And everything except bread is a... More

Can't beat the ambiance both inside and out. The food however is slipping. We were very disappointed the last two visits. One visit I was served tenderloin tips that were tough. I didn't think that could be possible but it was. Next visit was a trio of mini filets with different toppings. Asked for rare. One was rare and the... More
