Bordentown has a very vibrant restaurant business. There are numerous restaurants on Farnsworth Avenue, and one of the oldest ones is often overlooked. The Farnsworth House doesn't seem to advertise or "sell" itself, like most of the other restaurants. I'm just as guilty for not enjoying their food for quite a few years until recently. They have a brunch menu... More

I love the Steak Magnum best, but anything on the menu is a winner! Always great food and awesome service! The creme brulee is perfect!

Can be a little pricey but lunches are good. I go here for lunch because you can't beat the price for lunch. You get a nice lunch and they have the best soups. Beautiful inside nice bar.

Had a weekday lunch here. Never been to Bordentown until now. My coquillage St. Jacques was very good. Wide menu in historic building.

This has become our destination when we or friends are in the mood for incredible lamb chops; but there is so much more on the menu. Set in historic Bordentown, this comfy eatery with a classic bar offers a great deal; including warm and friendly service. If you are in the area, highly recommend you give it a try.

Went here with a friend for dinner. We both had a pasta/seafood special which was delicious! We shared oysters for an appetizer. They tasted fresh, but had a fair bit of shell in them. We had tiramisu for dessert which was very good. We both had martinis and there are quite a few to chose from. Everything tasted good and... More

Relaxed atmosphere generally good service and fair prices. Bordentown has several good restaurant choices; this is as comfortable as an old shoe. There is nearby parking, a rarity among Bordentown restaurants.

Chicken francaise very good. Huge tuna fillets. Excellent veal. Could use a kids menu. Service was spotty (Moe). Would definitely return.

We have dined here many times over the years. We like it so much that we were married here 16 years ago. The menu is incredible, as is the food itself. The service has also been excellent.

Nice quaint town vintage building. Food is good. More of an older crowd for a nice sit down dinner with family
