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.

8/14...worthy stop right across the street from Princeton. Split level open space. Large selection of brews on tap, with an eight beer sampler availability. Everything well poured and the staff aptly described the characteristics. Was impressed with the quality of the brews. Good food menu, aiming for slightly upscale and certainly creative.

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

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

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