Since moving to the Lawrenceville area I frequently travel to Princeton to find new places to have date night. While there was a little bit of a wait my fiancé and I we're seated in a timely fashion. His go to at every restaurant is steak while I had to try the Lobster Risotto and it was phenomenal. My waitress... More

Great dinner. Ahi tuna appetizer was amazing. We both ordered steaks and were not disappointed. My filet mignon was cooked perfectly and full of flavor.

The seafood, especially the crab cakes are the best you'll find in the the area. The same company owns the Blue Point Grill (BYO) on Nassau St (also great) and Nassau Street Seafood Store (also great produce too) next to the Blue Point. Depending on the night, Witherspoon Grill can be very noisy. But, if you want that, the bar... More

Sitting outside enjoying the nice summer Princeton weather with our dog. She sits quietly while we enjoy our drinks. The tuna appetizer and crab cakes on English muffins are delicious. The prices are a bit too high for the portions, but the service is good and the scenery is lovely. Their bread is very good and the location is on... More

We stopped by for a late lunch and caught them as they were getting ready for dinner. Nevertheless, they were very gracious and sat us at the bar. We ordered salads and drinks. I had a pineapple martini that was simply incredible. They make their own house pineapple infused vodka. I cannot wait to go back for dinner.

We have visited Princeton before and always passed this restaurant by, not for any particular reason. This past visit we decided to try it out for dinner, and we're not at all sorry we did. It's a great casual place to eat, while one is treated like royalty. The service is excellent; the food just as good, with plenty of... More

Our brunch at the Witherspoon Grill was the perfect complement to our trip to the carillon at the Graduate School, as the food was as elegant and simple as the instrument. While we had tentatively decided on our selections from the Grill's online menu, the special offering of crab toasties (a halved English muffin, Jersey tomato slices, and crabcake topping)... More

We went to this restaurant twice because we had a gift card to the Blue Point seafood restaurant and the card was also good for this restaurant. The first visit was on a Sunday and it was brunch. The menu had mostly omelets which isn't good for someone like me who doesn't like eggs. Husband was happy with his meal.... More
