Our server was very personable and took really good care of us. She had a very big personality, and even recommended another restaurant closer to where we are staying on the gulf. For an appetizer, I ordered the fried green tomatoes, which were presented beautifully, layered with chevre on a tasty remoulade sauce and crowned with 2 delectable shrimp. My... More

We visited for lunch, and started out with raw oysters which were as good as any I have ever had. They were large, fresh, and very tasty. For our entree we had shrimp & grits, that was the best of any I have ever had anywhere, including New Orleans. Very quaint atmosphere, and superior service. We can't wait to go... More

We pass by this area many times a year, driving from Orange Beach to Fairhope. We stopped in today for a late lunch, and what a treat. The shrimp and gouda grits were excellent, and the salads fresh and crisp. We made dinner reservations for next month and cannot wait to try the steaks. Such a lovely experience! Lunch runs... More

My wife and I went to Jesse's for our post-Valentine's day celebration and were blown away from start to finish. No detail was left to chance, the service was outstanding, and the food was better than even the gorgeous photography on the website led us to believe. We made an earlier dinner reservation because we wanted to really relax and... More

My husband and I stopped for lunch and enjoyed the historic building and excellent food. I had the Airline chicken that was a baked chicken breast topped lightly with bacon herb gravy. Mashed potatoes were real potatoes,not from a box. Salad was fresh and homemade dressings were superb. Husband had the 6oz filet which was a quality steak and cooked... More

This place is awesome. They have a lot of mouth watering things on their menu. We had the shrimp & grits, catfish po' boy with parmesan fries and maple praline bread pudding. All of it was amazing! Service was outstanding. This is my 2nd second visit and I have not had a bad meal yet! Will definitely be returning yet... More

My wife and I went for an early Valentines's dinner on Saturday night. She had steak and I had blackened catfish. Both dishes were excellent. The waiter was very friendly, informative and professional. Oh, the key lime cheesecake was great, too.

We went to Jesse's to celebrate my friend's birthday. It's a nice place, the dining room is a little to bright and could be dimmer. Also, the acoustics are poor. It's difficult to have a conversation. The menu is great. They have a wide assortment of appetizers from oysters to salads. My wife and the birthday boy got a dozen... More
