There isn't a lot that I would add to the previous reviews. I have stopped in here several times over the past 15-ish years that I believe it has been in existence. It seems to have changed very little since that first year, other than having become a fixture in the social circles of the Princeton community for students, faculty and businessmen and jouneymen alike. It's a pretty big place with plenty of alcoves up, down and all around to eat and/or drink. They only had seven beers on tap, and 3 of the 4 I tried were pretty decent (the stout was notably weak in flavor). The food has always been on the trendy pub / workingman's gourmet side, and in my experience very good. I really enjoyed my Cuban sandwich although my buddy's pastrami sandwich was apparently a bit more ordinary. Service was reasonably prompt considering how busy the place was on a Tuesday evening, we never went dry but I would have to say that service with a smile wasn't really in fashion, but again, probably due to the crowd. Never got much of a chance to test the beer knowledge. The place was buzzing, a very good feel in the crowd. It's relatively dark and somewhat closed in, no windows, but I enjoyed the evening and the beers and grub, definitely worth a visit. And if you have time to sample something other than (or in addition to) Triumph brews while in beautiful downtown Princeton, I will tell you that I was glad to take the suggestion of another BA who said to try out Teresa's Cafe just a block or so away from Triumph. Teresa's had only four taps but they were goodies. (1,566 characters)

The 7 beer sampler for $13 is a bargain. Decided the hand pump ESB was best offering. (85 characters)

You'd hope for more from such a cool looking place. A bit disappointed for sure. (80 characters)

The menu looked good but the actual food didn't live up to the hype. The beer wasn't much better. (97 characters)
