“Without a doubt - best prime rib we've ever had”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Had dinner there last night on our way to Naples. Stopped in Brandon for the night.

We went to Jesse's on recommendation of front desk clerk. Wife and I both had the prime rib. It was huge and done to perfection. It was so big (The Queens Cut) we couldn't finish it but we have a go box and a ice chest and delicious snack fixings for later on.

Our server even loaded us down with delicious horseradish sauce in capped containers.

Good food and outstanding service.

“Best Steak Dinner in the Tampa area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

While this restaurant is in Brandon (A smaller suburb of Tampa) it is worth the trip for the steak alone.
There were two bars (One we sat at while waiting for our table and a second inside that we sat at after we were done with our meal and watched the Lakers destroy Portland) and the bar tenders at both were very informative about the area which we had just moved into.

The dinner itself was very good overall, but the steak I had was easily the best I had ever had. I usually get my steak well done or medium well at the most rare, but the waitress talked me into trusting the cook and so I let him make it medium for me and I am so glad I did. It was tender and juicy and full of flavor and just plain YUM.

If you are in the area, check this place out. It's worth the wait for a table. And hey, you might get to see the Lakers cream the Spurs next time.
