Burger night is a great night to go! The kids also love the wings, Caesar salad and chicken wraps. And Dad loves the big beers. :-) Many different beers on tap, and they're always served ice cold! Definitely a good place to visit once a month or so if you live local; more often if you want to have drinks at the bar; and it's also a good place to take friends from out of town if you're looking for a good local pub atmosphere.

Outdoor seating in the good weather months offers great opportunities to people watch in downtown Freehold.

Definitely take advantage of holiday gift certificate offers around Xmas as $30 gets you $40!

Very tight quarters. Tables in the back right next to each other and close to the kitchen. Wait service was good though. Food was-usual burgers, sandwiches and fries-all ok. But the cheesecake tasted like onions.

Took my wife to the Court Jester in Freehold for an early dinner.
We were seated as we entered the restaurant.
The waiter gave us menus and took our drink order. The drinks could have been a bit stronger but was good.
The food was plentiful and very good. A nice place to go for a good meal

It's the Court Jester. It's a fixture in Freehold. My parents were there the day it opened, and decades later, it's still going strong. Nobody would ever accuse it of being pretentious. Get beer, for crying out loud, they have like 30 on tap to choose from; you order mixed drinks at your peril, unless you like artificial-sour-mix flavor. The food's nothing special, but they have the nicest staff around, they're generous and friendly, and they've got plenty of televisions for watching sports. If you want a beer and some wings with football, this is the place. Also good for sitting outside in the summer, socializing and enjoying the sounds of summer in Freehold... like ambulance sirens, honking, and pounding car stereos. For actual dinner where you care about the quality of the food? There are better options. 5 stars for being the best at what it's trying to be - a local spot with sports and bar food, not a zagat-rated restaurant.

The Court Jester in Freehold is a well known spot for getting together for a few beers with friends. They have over 30 beers on tap. Typical bar type food. ie.- chicken wings, nachos, burgers, etc. The food is good.

The only problem with this place is it gets VERY crowded at night and on weekends!

They do offer outdoor dining which is nice on a nice night.
