    You would never know this excellent place exists. The entrance is just a door with a long hallway. Once you enter, the restaurant opens up to three stories with two bars and plenty of places to sit and eat. We were a little early and had a drink at the bar. Once seated, the waitress was prompt to come to the table. We ordered the crab dip for an appetizer and it was delicious. For dinner, we had the fish and chips, Triumph burger and a lamb dish. I must say everything was absolutely delicious and I would highly recommend each meal. My biggest complaint would be the noise level as we had a difficult time conversing. Overall though, highly recommended.

    We are Triumph fans and so it was the perfect choice for a family lunch after Christmas Day. We were 8 with 3 kids, and one under 10. Our waiter was an Asian gent, who seemed in a hurry. No time for social niceties, a bit abrupt. The two kids ordered from the kids pizza and a burger, so no brainers. The adults ordered calamari (excellent), Mediterranean platter (Excellent except for the tapenade), House chips (great!) and House fries. We ordered a bottle of bubbly from Cote d;Or (Incorrectly labeled Champagne ;-)) very nice and refreshing & 2 amber ales. My fish and chips was a soggy disappointment, Lamb BLT, Mussels, superb. Triumph burger, Epic burger were excellent if a bit heavy. Would we go back? Abs!

    Very disappointing visit, food was good but by far the worst service I ever experienced here. The waiter could not have cared less about us. My order came out wrong, took 10 minutes just to find him, then another 10 to get my food back which was still wrong, The waiter just dropped the plate and ran, did not even ask if it was ok, or apologize! Then I had to wait another 15 minutes for him to bring the check,. Glad I had exact change in cash...keep looking for your tip. I'm not going back, lots of other better restaurants in Princeton! Tusk is going to close soon because of bad service, I'll predict this one is next.

    The service was so great, and the food our table ordered was either great (fish and chips, medierraneon platter, calimari) or "ennh", like the bland mushroom burger, and the hot but not that flavorful curried pulled pork tacos. Portions were the right size, salads were fresh, cocktails well made, but the real attraction is that awesome beer.

    If I were rating it on my meal alone, I would have given it an even lower rating. My waiter had food for three different tables- 10 people in all- the table of 6 was served first- took a few minutes- then we were served- my nachos were barely warm. He then served the 3rd table. When I noticed that he hadn't brought any salsa or sour cream for the nachos, I tried to find him- took a few minutes. By the time he brought it back, my bf had already finished his meal and mine was entirely cold. It went on and on like that. My bf meal was tasty- special for Oktoberfest. A nice combo of grilled sausages with a spicy mustard sauce. He got a side of the regular menu- roast brussel sprouts- which were the best part of the meal. Dessert was terrible

    Food and drafts were awesome, noise prevented comfortable conversation, eat there and talk elsewhere. They take fried pickles to an art form! Not to be missed with a seasonal brew. Everything is fresh, well prepared and some original takes on traditional fare. Off hours, then conversation is possible as well.

    As could be guessed from the name, Triumph Brewery specializes in micro brew that vary with the season. The food ranges from bar food and burgers to hand made pasta dishes. It is very welcoming for casual diners and the age 20 to 30 set but has the quality of food that would be appreciated by everyone.

    The beer is great and there's lots of people at the bar but I wouldn't recommend it as a place to eat. The copper tables made everything smell like old pennies. I know salmon can be a little "fishy" tasting but I ordered the Salmon tacos and they were extremely fishy smelling/tasting indicating that it was not very fresh. If i went back there, it would be for beer and after i had dinner somewhere else

    Food was good, with the exception of the steak I ordered. I requested rare, and meat was medium-well at best. Service was good, but table location was a drawback, as we were on aisle by top of the stairs, and had people constantly passing and brushing into our chairs/table; not a good place for a quiet/relaxing meal.

    This was very good. The food was on the mark as far as taste. There was nothing bland about it at all. You must try the cucumber bloody mary. My husband purchased the honey ale which he said was very good. He loved it so much that he purchased a jug of it. . We had the seafood broil and the Epic burger. Very good. The only reason why I didn't give it full stars is because it can be quite pricey. Otherwise we give it an A+.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 8/3/2012
    This is a nice in-town spot with good drinks and a few interesting items on the menu. The atmosphere was fun. We were disappointed in the food as I had looked at the menu before booking and called to inquire about vegan dishes - they had items like vegetable spring rolls that looked good and also the person I spoke to at the restaurant indicated the chefs would alter dishes for a vegan diner. Unfortunately, the menu changed the night we were there and they no longer had the spring rolls and had very few vegan choices - also our server struggled to find something and/or offer to check with the chef. The meals were okay - rather heavy - the highlight was the heirloom tomato salad. Hope they'll add more healthy/vegan dishes.

    The beer made in this brew pub is very good. The food good, but a little off-beat (e.g. pork belly instead of bacon). We enjoy dining at Triumph, but wish they had more traditional entries on their menu along with the eclectic.

    Nice, fun place and the food was good. Had never been there before but seems like a lively restaurant. It's a large almost cavernous restaurant with a center atrium where you can see the upper levels and the beer vats - pretty cool. The only negative was on the day we had our reservation there was a charity event on the first floor and what seemed to be a large party on one of the upper levels and it was noisy.

    Dined on 6/4/2012
    The initial impression walking down the hall to the bar/dining area requires maintenance. While I enjoy the casual atmosphere that a beer pub provides, this was a bit too casual for the price. I probably will not return however, all in the party reported that the food was good and cooked according to order. The brie grilled chees was interesing. Service was poor and we sat for at least 15 minutes between server visits. Server was definitely overwhelmed.
