Went with family. A bit lengthy service-wise, since we had a new server who hadn't been trained much. Food was excellent and portions were huge. Wine list is reasonable and prices are quite affordable. Definitely worth a revisit.

Prompted by a recommendation in the Star-Ledger, NJ's biggest newspaper, we took a day trip to Bordentown this morning. The town is wonderful--Thomas Paine, Clara Barton, Napoleon's big brother Joe, all chose to live there; what's not to love?

This morning it was also cold and blustery up on the bluff over the Delaware, so by lunchtime we were looking for something warm. Right in the middle of the town's historic/tourist district we found Jester's, in a location that has housed a hostelry since the early 1700s according to local lore.

It is, perhaps, not surprising, then, that the venue has seen a lot of wear. Nonetheless, with white tablecloths, even at lunch, big windows, and old-timey floors and ceilings, the place does have charm.

More importantly, our server, Anthony, was personable and helpful, and the food--from warm fresh rolls on--was excellent. We've already made a note to return to Bordentown when it is not quite so wintery, and Jester's will definitely be on our itinerary then, as well.

Been wanting to try this place for a while and was not disappointed.
Enjoyed a tasty cocktail to start. Our appetizer, soup and entrée were all delicious and the presentation was really nice. Can't wait to go back with friends and family.
