“Better then Expected”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

Found this place on the Things To Do map found in a lot of the stores and shops in the Vermont/New Hampshire area. We were staying in Brownsville Vermont and this restaurant was only 20 minutes away so we thought we would give it a try.

The Atmosphere is nice and casual. They have a nice Salad Bar which appeared to be very clean. Our waitress was very polite. She did not rush us into a decision and gave us time to review the menu. We both ordered steaks with two sides and we were both impressed with our meal.

Overall, the restaurant is a place we would recommend. It may not be the best place for romance, but it does deliver a good meal.

“Excellent Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

I work nearby and have been going to Jesse's with coworkers almost once a week for over a year. There is a very good selection of microbrews on tap and brews are $2 from 4:30 - 6:30 Monday - Friday. The food is good, the atmosphere is nice. I would recommend Jesse's solely on the basis of quality and value.

Those are draws but the real reason I choose Jesse's over the various other places in Hanover is because of Sarah the bartender. She is very welcoming and attentive and rates easily in the top ten bartenders that I've ever come across anywhere. Without disrespecting other staff, I know if I go to Jesse's on a night that Sarah is working, the service will be awesome; I won't wait to order or to be served even if it's busy. She will notice that my drink is getting low and ask me if I need a refill before it's empty. This is a bartender that knows her stuff.

“Best wait staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

We dined at Jesse's on Saturday 01/26/2013. The waitress was exceptional! We were a table of 4 on a very busy night although we did arrive early and had reservations so seating was not an issue. The food was wonderful and affordably priced.

“Excellent service, great prime rib”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Went with a group of 6 out-of-towners, 4 of whom had been at Jesse's before. Tater tots and calamari okay, nothing to email home about. Prime rib was great! 12 oz. looked like 12 oz AFTER cooking. Asked for medium rare, and it came exactly that way. Almost (not quite) tender enough to cut with a fork. Our server was terrific - great sense of humour, very friendly, only made one spill which was a cause of laughter through the next day! Would definitely return.

“Consistently good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

We have been here several times before and always enjoy the food. Make reservations or you may be in for a long wait. You don't have to order just steak either, I had a salmon carbonera that was very good. They also offer a nice salad bar.
