Small town atmosphere where everyone knows your name. Delicious Italian food and reasonable prices - a great date night, and a welcome change from chain restaurants. My fiance and I have eaten there three times, and we've loved every dish. The servers are friendly and attentive. Perfect for dinner and a show!

Not intimate dining, no "atmosphere" and not gourmet food. Probably a good place to bring the kids for a hamburger. The wait staff is bad and inexperienced does not know the menu or soup of the day. Dinner rolls were hard and the butter almost frozen. Salad was terrible. The stem of the lettuce head wound up in mine. Blue cheese dressing wasn't even Kraft quality. Ordered chicken picatta and when it was placed in front of me, the aroma was that of dirt. I immediately wanted it taken away, but I tried two bites. Rubber chicken and mushrooms from a jar. Butter was separating from the lemon "sauce" making it appear greasy. Served with a mound of angel hair pasta, that I never expected. I sent it away. College cafeteria food was not what I was looking for. To be fair, the owner did not charge me for the meal. I would have paid, since I ordered it and didn't want to make a scene. I too wanted to like Jesters but found it to be a total disappointment.

A nice place for dinner, although if it's crowded the seating is a little cramped. We're never in a hurry when we go there for dinner so if service isn't like a fast-food joint we're really not bothered by that. The staff has always been friendly and accommodating and the food is very good.

The food is good but service is very slow and at times forgetful also the menu doesn't change much. We had our school end of the year luncheon this past week and they didn't have the order ready on time it was over an 1/2 hours late. Part of the order wasn't what we asked for and they forgot one item so they had to go back and get it. We went with them because of one item we liked and that was the one they messed up and gave us something different. Wouldn't use them again or go back there.

They have great cheeseburgers, steak sandwhiches and salads. The buffalo chicken salad is huge I got 3 meals out of it. The service is ok a little slow but it's worth the wait. The only downfall is that it's not really that big inside and if there are a lot of people in there you feel kind of crowded.

This is a great place with a comfortable bar and restaurant. It's a spot I hit with friends, sometimes we eat and sometimes we just have a few drinks at the bar. The range of food is appetizers to sandwiches to actual dinner. It's not a gourmet locations, but the food is good. On a Friday, after a couple of drinks, I find it perfect!

I really wanted to like Jester's. A great location and I had heard good things. Went once - never again. Service is horrible. When they do show up to take or bring an order they have forgotten something, messed up the order or it is just not good. Filet Mignon sandwich was tough over-ccoked and blah. Salads not very creative. And did I mention the TERRIBLE service?

Jesters is a little cafe in the heart of Bordentown City. Primarily Italian cuisine.....just like Burger King, have it your way....at Jesters you can have your pasta, your way!! You select the type of pasta and then select the sauce. It doesn't get any simplier than that. There is a full service bar, so you can have a drink to accompany your meal. It may take a little wait for your order to arrive, but that's because it's all made to order---and it's worth it. On a nice day or evening, you have the option of enjoying your meal outside at the cafe tables.
This is a definite stop while visiting historic Bordentown.

Jester's is a fun place to go and the place to eat in Bordentown City. It has been associated with one of the main reasons to take the River Line to Bordentown City for a visit on the weekends. Their food is excellent and the fun part is being able to eat outside at the nicely decorated tables outside of the restaurant. There, you are able to watch the happenings on the main street and enjoy the marvelous cheeseburger that makes me drool just remembering at this very moment.

PROS: Handsome decor and great food
CONS: None
