The Yankee Doodle Tap Room has lost its way over the years. I do hope it can regain what it has lost.

We met friends here for dinner and while the atmosphere is great, the food was not. At best, the appetizers were mediocre. I got the lamb shank for dinner and was sorry I did. It was dry and tasteless. Although the place is cute, there are plenty of cute places in Princeton with much better food. There's a reason this... More

Stopped in for a evening drink and bite to eat with friends. I enjoyed the onion soup, the Nassau Inn burger with sweet potato fries. Loren was our server and was delightful, as well as Jill the bartender who was very helpful with wine selections. Great place to meet friends in an inviting atmosphere. I'll be back!

Yankee Doodle is actually part of The Nassau Inn. A more casual, relaxed venue for eating and drinks. The food is excellent. Ranges from Small Plates, to vurgers to dull entrees. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Started with a cheese board to share. The cheese was excellent but a bit pricey at $16 for the three small pieces on... More

I've never had a bad meal here. Service has always been good and I like the historic setting. Prices are decent too. They have a good Sunday brunch.

Wonderful pub-style lunch near the fireplace. Shelby was both friendly and professional She served us very good food drinks, Her suggestions were excellent. Cuban Panini , onion soup, sweet potato fries (I had attended a schoolmates birthday party back in the 1950s.) The Nassau Inn was impressive then but it is much more enjoyable now.

My family has a long tradition of meeting at the tap room at various holidays, which has officially been terminated (at least at the tap room). The service at the bar was never quick, but it has gotten even slower over recent years. The kiss of death for us going there was when seven of our group of twelve were... More

We had been walking around all day and were ready for a pre-dinner drink. There were 2 weddings going on and the bridal parties were at the bar. There were games on the TV screens and there was a lively atmosphere so we ended up staying for dinner. We only had chili and burgers but it was good fun. A... More

Very casual restaurant. Very popular amongst Princeton University students. Nice ambience with a great fireplace. I only had burgers and sandwiches and few beers. Food was ok but kind of expensive for what they offer. Considering is part of the Nassau Inn I would have expected a nicer delivery of their offering.

Thank Vasilios C
