This second year we dined Thanksgiving dinner away from home. This place is much casual & relaxed. Servers were cordial & food were superb. Most importantly, the three course dinner offer several choices & priced moderately. The turkey breast was bit dry.

...then I would pick another restaurant. The three of us showed up for quick snack and a drink. We ended up in the "annex." That side area off to the left as you come in the front door. Felt like being at the kids table and all the grown ups were in the main room and at the bar. Not... More

Nice place with plenty of food options. Went there for lunch and was impressed. Service was good albeit a little slow. Prices were also a little on the high side. Ample parking in nearby garages with limited on street parking available.

Went for lunch on a nice Saturday and sat outside. Service was good, started with Calamari which was very tasty. Then we had a burger and gnocchi. Burger was done very well - very good meat. Enjoyed the Beer selection as well. Not cheap.

My cousin and I went for lunch. We were seated fairly quickly. We started with drinks that were very good. To begin the meal, she had the lobster bisque and I had the French onion soup without the bread. Both were outstanding! For my entree I ordered the butternut squash risotto. Very tasty! It was so good I could have... More

Well, I went back. I was at a work function. It's much nicer when someone else picks up the tab. The service this time was much better. The food was quite good (I think it was good before).

Princeton offered several good venues to get together with friends. Witherspoon Grill is a consistently good choice with an active evening bar scene, reasonably priced entrees, very good seafood towers. Today had the lobster risotto to celebrate the late fall season. One nice aspect was that taking a family member out for his birthday showed us to keep the bill... More

Three of us stopped in for a lunch without reservations on a weekday. It was crowded, but we only had to wait about 15 minutes to be seated. The lunch menu was very enticing, and we had difficulty deciding what we wanted. We all had the smoked salmon club, which was delicious (it was served on pumpernickel, but for some... More
