Food consistently very good, they're great with families with small children and don't rush you out. If you don't know where you want to go for a meal, this is a great yo-yo spot.

We stopped here on our way to the Princeton art museum. The lunch selections were fantastic. I had the fillet sandwich and it was cook perfectly and extremely tasty. My friend loved her crab salad. The Moscow mules were great very gingery- all in all a great experience.

Had lunch with 2 friends. Arrived at 1:30 - food not served till 2:40. Table next to us arrived a good while after us, but were served much quicker. I usually attribute delays in food to the kitchen, but in this case, it was clearly our server - who failed to check back with us the entire time we sat... More

This is billed as a local steak house, although it has a fairly varied menu. We went with friends looking for beef. I ordered the beet salad, which was very nice, and my husband had the Caesar, also good. He ordered his favorite beef, filet mignon and thought it was fine, although not as good as our favorite, local steak... More

I ate here during a recent business trip, and chose it because the interior had character. I liked the overall dark-wood look of both the bar area and the restaurant. I ate a filet mignon trio -- a special that day, which was quite good and more than filling. The Kentucky Old Fashioned I ordered to drink was among the... More

Cozy atmosphere, pleasant staff, somewhat standard food, given the town and the restaurant's setting. My husband enjoyed his chicken. I thought my fish was a bit overcooked. Overall, we had a nice time there.

The last few times I have been there, I have been disappointed. I was unhappy with the food and they were even out of baked potatoes by 7pm at night! I will try again but its been poor the last three times considering the prices.

I thought this place was just average. I wouldn't go back unless every other place in town was closed and the dumpsters were empty.
