The most known bar in Avalon. The place is usually uncomfortably packed except in the off days. Way overpriced drinks. Bartenders are very good for the amount of volume they have to handle. Bouncers can be real a-holes. Good bar for singles and philly socialites.

It's not a trip to Avalon without a drink at the Princeton. Had the crab cake sandwich which was nicely prepared. Wish the sandwiches came with fries but ordered a side of truffle fries. The order was huge- too much even for two people to share. The day atmosphere is nice and the nightlife is entertaining.

Drinks are strong and are reasonably priced. Seems like a great place to hang out and catch a game. Menu is not very creative, same shore food everyone else has at slightly higher prices. Got the cheesesteak egg rolls and they were made with hamburger meat (not shaved steak), there wasn't any cheese in it and they served it with... More

Arrived early evening, waited about 45 minutes for a table, served drinks on the terrace that were lovely. One inside there was a busy vibe, calamari and mussels were fab, kids meals were of a good size but were served well before the adult entrees. The entrees were of a good quality made with fresh produce.

Nice atmosphere. Food adequate but when you can't cook rice properly, you probably shouldn't be a chef. ( HARD inside. ) Once the food arrived, we spent the entire meal where were eating inside, fighting off a swarm of flies. I'm not sure what exactly should be done but we will not be dining here anytime soon.

You can really enjoy yourself at this legendary Avalon establishment - Just DONT eat here. Known for its late night entertainment and its extensive rebuild several years back you would think they would spend a extra 50,000 or even 100,000 to bring in a chef that can create and deliver a decent meal. They Have not! I sent back a... More

Decided to try here because it has a lovely outdoor seating area with great ambiance. My family and I all ordered something different and the food was good. We only ordered sandwiches and appetizers as it was late in the evening and entrees were a bit pricey. The inside was very crowded and a bit loud as it has the... More

We choose this restaurant on a whim - surprise service was good and food was also good. This is a hang out for the young in crowd of which we are neither.
