Have never eaten at Jesters. Only stopped in for drinks. The restaurant and bar were packed and very lively on a Saturday night. Service at the bar was quick too. Looks to be a popular restaurant in bordentown. Would like to return for a meal.

We have been coming to Jester's for a few years now. I have been there for a wedding reception and a retirement party plus just nights out for dinner. The staff is wonderful and the food is awesome, we never had a bad meal. I heard their ribs are to die for but I have not had them, I always... More

We've come here to eat several years in a row, while visiting this interesting town. The facility is pleasant and well maintained, with a comfortable decor. A great location to people watch. The staff are friendly and professional. The food has been consistently very good. A charming option to share with friends.

Jester's is a lively place to be! It is located in charming, downtown Bordentown. We were there on a Friday night and had fabulous burgers and beer. The bar was very busy and they had live music which was very pleasant as well. Kind of a jazzy duo was there that night which we enjoyed a lot. Service was excellent... More

Great salads. The grilled chicken salad with cranberries is my fave! Must have had it 10 times. Always a perfect lunch choice. Nice people, friendly little place. Also love their steamed clams..

Got an outside table for 4 without a wait on a Friday night. The waiter was polite and attentive from the moment we sat down. My husband ordered a pizza and said it was nothing special. I ordered a burger medium well and it had some grilled sections that were more on the burnt side. The prices were expected for... More

Wait staff is friendly and attentive. Food isn't bad. We usually go for lunch. They put too much garlic in their "Italian" dishes. Being 100% Italian, I feel that garlic should only be used to enhance and not the first thing you taste. But I do enjoy their burgers and their other sandwiches.
