Atmosphere: The atmosphere fits well with Princeton. It feels like a cool place to be. A little dark in there, but you can still clearly see your beer to accurately review the color. A little cramped due to it being narrow. Feels like a good place to get beer.
Quality: Outstanding. High quality food, high quality beer, high quality service, what more could you ask for?
Service: Very good, the server comes around often enough, but isn't asking if you need something every 5 seconds.
Selection: Good with what I expect from a brew pub. They have 7 beers available, which should be enough to please anybody. There are 2 to 3 beers that are always there, the Honey Blonde, the Amber Ale, and usually the Bengal Gold IPA (this may get rotated with other IPAs). They have 2 more rotating regular taps with some good stuff out of the ordinary. There is one rotating Nitro-tap with some kind of stout, which the Irish stout is seen most often. The seventh beer is a rotating cask on hand pump which is usually the most unusual. So everybody should be happy with the beer, and if you really can't decide, you can get a sampler. Food selection is good too, a decent sized menu, but not too extensive.
Food: Excellent high quality gourmet food. The Triumph Burger is the best burger I've ever had. If you're looking for regular entrees, there is a decent selection that isn't over involved. Plenty of sandwich/wrap selections, salads, soups, appetizers, and desserts. It is all high quality and delicious.
Value: Not cheap, but still reasonable prices. Sandwiches are about $9-15 and entrees are about $15-30. Appetizers are pretty much less than $10. Beer I'm pretty sure is all $5.50 regardless of what you order (size varies though, all served in proper glasses). Growlers used to be $15 for a new one filled, and $12 for refills, but that has gone up to $17 and $13. Not that big of a deal, and still a reasonable price. They now offer some 750ml bottles, but I didn't get one to go because of the price (don't remember, but it was between $10 and $20).
Overall I love this place, and I haven't gotten to go here as often as I used to. I would highly recommend it if you are in the Princeton area.
