    Amazing food and dog loving place

    The food and everyone was exceptional. They were so nice! When it started to pour, they accommodated us the best than any other restaurant has so far. Our pup even loved it because they gave her a treat upon her arrival. We will definitely be back here!

    Very welcoming

    weve been traveling around the region with our pups and have to note that this venue was one of the best experiences. We called ahead, they assured us pups would be welcomed. when we arrived they came outside to meet us and take us to the table. when the servers and staff came to the table they all did their best to assure the dogs that they were friendly and welcomed.

    Most places just ignore the dog for the duration of your meal but this was above and beyond.

    Certainly a place to refer others. excellent choice in cooler weather too (outdoor heaters!!)

    Fathers day with a Puppy

    The staff and other customers were so friendly to my puppy. Food was delicious and you can make outdoor dining reservations so you don't get stuck trying to find a dog friendly alternative.
    Plenty of space between tables that are also separate enough from the sidewalk if you are bringing a puppy who is still getting used to the all hustle and bustle.

    Have taken my dog here many times during the summer. They have outdoor tables for you and your dog BUT you need to plan it our carefully. Its best to go during slower hours. The outdoor section tends to get crowded. Food and service is great.!

    Very pet friendly

    We had a great meal and the wait staff were so nice to our 2 puppies, bringing them a water dish, petting them, etc. they were incredibly accommodating when it started raining and we were outside.

    We LOVED IT!

    My girlfriend and I and two of our dogs went to The Witherspoon last nite for dinner. They were SO nice to our dogs - water for them immediately, the waiters didn't mind stepping over and around my dog (she liked to wander to the surrounding tables as much as I'd let her to enjoy the aromas), and even the guests were awesome about the dogs - - - one couple even doggie-bagged the bone from their Porterhouse-for-Two meal for us. It was a gorgeous nite, music in the background at the piazza in front of the restaurant, quick and spot-on service. Oh, the food was absolutely fantastic, too. We HIGHLY recommend The Witherspoon, and will definitely be back - with or without our dogs. Thank you for the great service!

    Very dog friendly

    In nice weather it can be difficult to get a table outside. But, it's worth it because the staff welcomes dogs, with fresh water, extra bread, and many pats on the head.

    Extremely dog friendly

    They are so dog friendly we've brought our dog many many many times to this restaurant. The food is wonderful, the staff is so considerate and usually asks if we need water for our dog. The atmosphere is great as the seating outside is wonderful. We love bringing our dog with us and as this is the only dog friendly restaurant in Princeton we tend to only go there.. with bells on!

    2 Adults and a Pup

    We've eaten outdoors with our dog multiple times and the staff is always accommodating and friendly to our dog. We've even had waitresses bring out water for our dog without us even asking. This is one of the few if not only outdoor dining restaurants that will allow dogs.
