Was in the area for the The Prouty 100 mile charity bike ride. We were looking for a solid dinner after a long day of cycling. Jesse's did not disappoint. I had a very tasty and tender filet mignon and my wife enjoyed a very nice piece of swordfish. We were a party of 4 and everyone enjoyed their meal.... More

Thanks for your nice review of our restaurant. Sorry about the flies outside. We do our best, but the beautiful landscape and adjacent forest create a tough battle to win. Thanks for your support of the Prouty and congratulations on a successful ride. Our restaurant is a supporter of the Prouty, too! We sell special Prouty Pints of Sam Adams... More

I am so deeply sorry that your food was not enjoyable when you recently visited our restaurant. It's good to hear that you liked the service, but I'm sure that you came to us for a great meal and we fell short. Our steaks are graded choice or better and aged in house for 4 weeks before being butchered by... More

Jesse's has an excellent friendly staff. They go out of their way to accommodate you. Their salad bar is one of the best i have tasted. Only salad bar better is Sperry's in Nashville and not by much since Jesse's features raw shrimp. Their Steak's are good, but not extraordinary. Had ribeye and guest had Prime Rib. Both were cooked... More

On June 10th we went to Jesse's to celebrate my wife's birthday. We went for the Lobster Roll and were informed they were out. The Asst. Manager Nicky came to our table and quickly informed us that the Chef would steam a lobster and have a Lobster Roll prepared for my wife. My wife also ordered the Fried Green Tomatoes... More

Wanted someplace nice to take a group of college students in the Hanover area. They all suggested Jesse's! The prime rib was fantastic, as ALWAYS!! They had a special soup that night that was a crab soup with sweet potato. It was almost like dessert! Speaking of dessert. . . I hear Jesse's has fantastic desserts but never remember to... More

We are so happy that you and your students had a great time at Jesse's. We are proud of our food, but I'm wondering if the student attraction has anything to do with the happy hour! Desserts are amazing and served in small individual portions with layers of deliciousness. They are all great and availability rotates. Next time you visit,... More

I grew up in this area and remember when Marc opened this placed based on a concept by a restaurateur he much admired. He did it right from day one and it shows. Don't worry about a thing, you can't go wrong here. The next time I'm in the upper valley you can bet I'll be having a steak here.

Thanks for your kind review of our restaurant. Prime rib is our specialty. We roast our primes slowly overnight in a special oven to keep them juicy and tender. I am so glad that you enjoyed it! More

The food here is always good! I have had most items on the menu and have really liked them all. It is a steakhouse, so you can't go wrong with their Terryaki Steak or Prime Rib - ask for a side of their tator tots, YUM!

May is crab fest, and the pan seared crab cakes were amazing! Lots of crab!! The service is always consistent with experienced staff. New wines are also amazing, had the Argentine Enamore, which was real chewy! Delicious.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. We are using a new recipe this year for the crab cakes, except we upgraded the crab to Maryland lump crab and doubled the amount in the recipe. The cakes are almost all crab. If we put anymore crab in them, they would fall apart. Great comments on the Enamore. That... More
