Quick Bite

Circle Tavern at the Princeton

Hours: Mon-Thurs, 11 am-10 pm; Fri-Sat, 11 am-11 pm; Sun 12-10 pm

Price: $$

Style: Gastro pub during the day and early evening—party bar on summer nights.

Don’t Miss: Circle Six-Pack Chili, enough for a meal with generous sides of sour cream and red onions so you can spice or thicken it to your liking. For a grown-up twist on a childhood classic, try Three Grilled Cheese, which combines American, mozzarella, and sharp cheddar with honey mustard and is served with freshly made coleslaw.

Heads Up:  The Princeton, which is the bar attached to the Circle Tavern, is arguably the most popular summer spot on the island—packed to the gills in season, with noise and cover charge to match.

The Scoop:  Circle Tavern was renovated in time for the 2007 summer season and has become an easy grab-a-burger stop. The restaurant is open year ’round, so it attracts a loyal crowd. Plenty of flat screen TVs to please sports buffs. Often there is live music or a DJ, so bring your dancing shoes.
