My wife and I had dinner here on the first Saturday in October and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. It was an all day rain, but the Prince and the Pauper was a warm and cozy refuge. The service was outstanding and flowed well. I had a salad- great in house dressing, the Pasta Del Giorno- comfort food, and the Swordfish-cooked... More

After driving for 3 hours and then checking in at Woodstock Inn my wife and I ate here. We were meted by friendly matre'd. We had a drink at the bar before going to the dinning room. Friendly atmosphere and bartender. Once seated the waitress went over the menu. My wife had their signature dish...the lamb and I had the... More

You may find the front door to the restaurant a little hard to find. Believe me, it's worth the effort. The menu gives you a wide choice without being cluttered. The house speciality is the lamb in pastry. There's only one good reason for not having this ... being a vegetarian. It's absolutely delicious. I'd advise not eating much at... More

The restaurant is OK. I will gladly pay a good price for a high quality meal, but this does not apply to the Pauper. Chef will not cook the lamb dish more than medium rare no matter what you ask for. The filet mignon, to us, was faux filet. First and last visit.

Everything was outstanding. Cocktails. salads, entrees and desert were tops. The restaurant was quiet but there is an "energy" about the place. It is located in the middle of town...you can walk.

We loved this venue and were fortunate to get an 800 pm cancellation on Columbus Holiday weekend. Arrived on time but then 20 min wait to be seated. Also the poor waiter said to us several times our food was on its way but another extra 20 mins for main course. Great food, all was right except for them trying... More

Dear Howard D, Many thanks for your recent visit to The Prince & The Pauper. Columbus Day weekend is the busiest time of the year for us, and Saturday night was the busiest night of that weekend. That particular night was fully booked more than a week before, with a waiting list of 40 + guests. There were no walk-ins... More

This was our third dinner at The Prince and Pauper and the food seems to get better each time. The owner greets you and watches over everything. The menu is limited so the food is well prepared and the selection is great. I had the lamb and it just could not have been better. The wine list offers a wide... More

My stepdaughter, a student at a nearby university, took my wife and I to the restaurant. It was a good choice. There is an extensive wine list. We enjoyed the Sancerre and Fondabet Bordeaux with our appetizers (prosciutto with figs, salad with bleu cheese crumbles, penne pasta with meats) and entrees (lamb, duck, filet mignon). The apple crisp dessert was... More

We made reservations in advance based on some local advice. The menu is limited but we knew that going in and were very happy with the options. The food was excellent as well as the service for a reasonable price, we highly recommend it!
