They have added thick plasti-glass to the booths apparently to protect the carved initials on the tables -- pretty silly in my opinion. The plasti-glass wobbles and makes it hard to eat, like a wobbly table. Food is OK. Service slow. Boring lunch menu.

Great food in an historical setting! My husband and I stopped for lunch and had delicious crab cake sandwiches from the menu of pub fare. The booths capture Princeton University ambiance because former students' names are engraved into the tabletops. A wall of photos of famous PU graduates fills a wall; it is challenging and fun to identify as many... More

The room itself is amazing, lovely with lots of historical paintings on the walls and a lovely old colonial fireplace on one end. The bar itself is fine. I had a couple Guinness's on tap which were fine. The bartender more or less disappeared at one point, I had already paid and was just finishing my drink but other patrons... More

Stopped in for drinks. Love the ambiance and the English pub type atmosphere. Norman Rockwell painting is one of my favorites. Good service and Guinness on tap.

Ok, we gave them two opportunities. Had it not been for the food quality, which is good, we would not have gone the 2nd day. The service was incredibly disappointing. Maybe this young man did not feel well this past weekend, but it seemed he would have preferred to be anywhere else. This is a shame. We had high hopes.

Had a scrumptious breakfast here the morning after Thanksgiving. Huge portions, attentive service. The memorabilia in the room is amazing. Looking at the senior portraits of prominent Princeton graduates, displayed on one large expanse of wall, was a treat. No visit to Princeton is complete without having a drink or a meal at the Yankee Doodle!

3 of us had a late morning birthday breakfast on the day after Thanksgiving. I first felt bad that we did not go to PJ's Pancake House but as we parked in the nearby local garage and were also waiting for someone else to show this place seemed best. PJ's also had a line for seating. We were pleasantly surprised... More

Poor Thanksgiving food selection and quality--and poor service. Got kicked out by the hostess before eating our desserts due to 90 min limit even though no one appeared to be waiting for the next seating. Weren't even offered coffee, tea, etc. Luckily, we asked for packaging or else we would have needed to leave our untouched desserts behind. Worse yet,... More

The food was typical bar food. There was nothing special about it. It was convenient for guests staying at Nassau Inn.

Came here a few times with friend and family. Old historic bar and pub. Meals are pretty decent and the beer and liquor selection is very good. Nice meet up place as well.

Thank KidLove
