We have been going to Jesse's off and on for 10 plus years. Our experience was that the quality was erratic -most times very good but not always. Our most recent visit revealed a redecorated main dining room and an expanded menu that includes premium wet and dry-aged beef. Many of the previous seafood offering are still on the menu with the addition of at least one fish not commonly served in Lower Alabama.
We had the quail and calamari appetizers followed by diver scallops, venison, and shrimp and grits. The venison was noteworthy and the cheese grits are about as cheesy as can be. Overall everything was fine. Service has always been on the slow side for the main entree' but the drinks are interesting and it doesn't hurt to talk to your companions.
Although we have not been there for lunch recently, it is always excellent.
