If you wish, there are rooms upstairs available for private dining which would be reserved prior to your meal.

The Food

The History
The Tap Room’s timeless charm includes the alumni carved names and dates on the solid oak tabletops, and the black and white photo gallery of famous Princeton University graduates from the past century. The largest piece of history is the 1937 original Norman Rockwell mural of Yankee Doodle, hanging 13 feet wide above the bar, which gave the restaurant its name. Come see and taste what people have cherished for more than 70 years.
