Went with family. A bit lengthy service-wise, since we had a new server who hadn't been trained much. Food was excellent and portions were huge. Wine list is reasonable and prices are quite affordable. Definitely worth a revisit.

Prompted by a recommendation in the Star-Ledger, NJ's biggest newspaper, we took a day trip to Bordentown this morning. The town is wonderful--Thomas Paine, Clara Barton, Napoleon's big brother Joe, all chose to live there; what's not to love? This morning it was also cold and blustery up on the bluff over the Delaware, so by lunchtime we were looking... More

Been wanting to try this place for a while and was not disappointed. Enjoyed a tasty cocktail to start. Our appetizer, soup and entrée were all delicious and the presentation was really nice. Can't wait to go back with friends and family.

Went here with our daughter and her husband since she had a groupon. Location is downtown Bordentown on the corner of the Main Street. Staff was attentive and friendly.

Food is freshly prepared by Italian chef/owner. Tablecloths and place settings add to the dining experience. My husband really likes the burgers. He thinks they're the best in town. Staff is very friendly and accommodating.

Visited Jesters on a Tuesday night, love the free parking lot because it is often hard to find parking in Bordentown. Place was not very busy so we got a great table by the window. Waiter was attentive and friendly. He informed us it was restaurant week and they had a very reasonable menu for specials. My husband tried the... More

Jesters is by far my favorite restaurant in Bordentown City. Their chefs prepare superb dining. Everything from the delish tomato soup to burgers to beef, veal and chicken is scrumptious and priced reasonably! I go here more than any place else in town. The service is first rate and the atmosphere is warm and friendly!

Located in the middle of Bordentown with its own parking lot. Excellent and very creative menu. Friendly wait staff and music some nights, check their website. Blue cheese mussels were great!
