A friend recommended this place to us and I have to say they shocked me. When I first walked in and saw the size of the place and the layout I thought "There is no way this is going to be good", Boy was I wrong. This was fantastic and has become our new regular place. In a time and... More

Wow, just wow!! There are no words for how amazing this restaurant is...everything from the atmosphere, to the staff, and most importantly to the food. The mussels are out of this world!! The risotto is to die for. The salads will make you salivate. And the desserts, the desserts are heaven in your mouth.

I love Bordentown restaurants, you can eat outside and watch people walk by, the food is always good at Olivers. Great menu, great specials! Try this place for lunch!

So glad we finally tried "burger night" here because not only are the burgers some of the best you'll have their soups, sandwiches and other items are really good as well. Service was EXCELLENT! Have been back repeatedly Can't wait to try it on Friday or Saturday night!

If you want a special lunch and happen to be in Bordentown, this is the place to go! The food choices are eclectic but not outrageously priced. The atmosphere is quaint. I hear dinner is also wonderful, but I have not yet had the chance to get there for that.

This is often our anniversary spot and we were not let down again this year! Reservations on a Friday night were necessary as the place is on the small side and gets filled up fast. The Friday/Saturday menu is excellent and they also feature a Friday pre-fixe menu. For $30, I had an excellent caesar salad, an unbelievable mushroom bruschetta,... More

As soon as I'm seated, and before my bottle of wine is opened, I put my order in for the coconut curry mussels. No it is not like eating a mounds bars. It's just absolutely heavenly, with a hint of sweetness, and the sauce is lovingly cooked for a day. I always take it home and just add it to... More

Came here on a Tuesday evening for a birthday dinner while visiting family in the area. My wife had a shrimp dish and I had one of the speciality burgers (buffalo chicken). Excellent meal and service. And the mini-deserts were awesome - I had some of the flourless chocolate cake as well as a cream puff/eclair. Very attentive wait staff.... More
