I got the forty creek BBQ poutine and it was absolutely drenched in sauce and gravy. Personally, I am not a fan of that much sauce. Otherwise, it is a decent spot to go. Their onion rings and bruschetta are great. Servers were interesting.

I keep wanting to like the Jester...always bothers me the price of drinks a bit on the high side. Some of the staff are just a bit on the stuck up side and the food is pub grub but usually a little over done and expensive for what you get. They should pick up the game a bit now two... More

We had reservations for Saturday night. Their computers were don all day, and the place was packed and noisy. They couldn't accomodate us, though they were really trying to. After almost 30 minutes of waiting, we gave up and left. Well, didn't the OWNER of the restaurant call us the next day!!!!! He apologized again for what had happened and... More

Stopped in on a Wednesday and it was crowded because it was 2 for 1 wing night. Service was good despite the busy night. Food was fast and wings were pretty good. Not too keen on the Jester wings. Everything else was fine.

We fast became regulars, and bring visiting guests too since moving to Grimsby. It's very friendly, laidback local establishment. Great variety on menu, food is well prepared and tasty with more than ample portions (the nachos can feed four of us!). There's a good selection of beers, wait staff is always helpful and courteous. Outdoor patio in the summer tucked... More

I visited this restaurant on a Friday night with a large group. It was really really busy. I would not recommend going without a reservation on a weekend. Everyone in our group enjoyed their meal from chicken fingers, to steak, to butter chicken. I had the chicken BLT poutine which was a delicious mix of everything right in 1 bowl.... More
