Best prime rib around

My husband and I haven't been here in many years, I recall that the last time we ate there, it was mediocre, so we tried it again.

Went with family on a Friday night. Long wait but worth it ! Fireplaces, live music friendly people. The service was good as was the food. I would definitely return. Much better than chain restaurants

We've frequently dined here hoping things will get better but have yet to be satisfied. My husband loves salmon and its always been overcooked. The filet mignon was a different cut of meat so we'll never order it again. One time the kitchen was so slow the server apologized and they comped us dessert when all we wanted was a... More

Thanks for taking the time to write a review and share this feedback with us. We are so sorry that we've fallen short during your recent visits. We buy premium fresh seafood and high quality Midwestern beef. We filet the salmon and butcher the beef in house. After all that effort, a cook can still destroy the meat by cooking... More

The restaurant was warm and festive. The hostess greeted us with a welcoming smile. Beth, our waitress, offered some wonderful suggestions to get us started for our dinner while we waited for one extra member of our party to arrive. Dinners were cooked perfectly. All items came out of the kitchen hot. One issue: There was too much clanging about... More

We're so glad that you chose to have your gathering at Jesse's. I apologize about the noisiness near your table. We have a large restaurant and there are a few tables that are closer to service areas. Next time you make a reservation, I recommend requesting a table in the greenhouse or lodge.

This is New England at its best. We had prime rib, done to perfection. Very popular local restaurant. Reservation suggested but we were there Saturday night after a football game. Still the wait was only about 45 minutes. It is worth the effort.

My son and I had dinner here on a very busy Saturday night. He had the filet mignon and I had the prime rib. Both were very good. The brie cheese appetizer (new at the time) was excellent, but did not come with enough bread to handle the cheese! Although the place was packed, our waiter was attentive and recommended... More

Jesse's is lost in time, however, if you want a really nice piece of roast beef with a baked potato, this is a good place to come. Our shrimp cocktail was not good, and other items we tried were OK. Stick to the Prime Rib. Very large piece of meat for a reasonable price.

I'm so sorry that you didn't enjoy the other items that you ordered. While I agree with you that the prime rib is our best item, everything on the menu should have been enjoyed if properly executed. Please reach out to me if you have time. I would appreciate any specific feedback and the opportunity to convince you that our... More

Whenever in this area we always try to go here for dinner. Food is usually very good, filet with bernaise sauce is excellent, but my wife ordered the Thai Chicken, a little burned.

I'm so sorry that you were sat near the kitchen and that the chicken was overcooked. Your review was very generous considering these concerns. We use a skin on chicken breast for that dish. The skin help keep the chicken moist and adds great flavor. However, if the chef isn't paying attention, this skin burns quickly. It should not have... More
