We wanted a hamburger, not an easy thing to find in Ojai. The Village Jester's menu was in the menu book at our hotel and we figured we'd give it a try. There was a chain on the door! If this was temporary, we don't know, but, boy, were we disappointed. No hamburgers in Oaji!

Stopped in for lunch one weekend day. The place was pretty empty. Found the food to be average and about average price too. The drinks were good. Service was so-so. It's OK, but just OK, There are better places to eat in Ojai. But if you want something simply like a burger, you'll be happy enough.

My friend's band was playing here and it was a fun, lively and great place to ring in the new year. The locals were great and the service was awesome at this bar. Loved the vibe that it gave off.
