Went in with 3 friends. The place is poorly lit and feels repressive. Being a vegetarian, the dishes I ordered were out of stock. Finally ordered something. At the table next to us, a child knocked his plate and food onto the floor. It took...a while for someone to decide whose job it was to clean it up. When I asked for change for a $20 bill so I could leave the waitress a tip, the waitress pulled cash out of her bra on the left and put my $20 dollar bill on the right. Prices are high compared to the quality of food, service and atmosphere. Never ate there again.More

A wonderful gem tucked away in Pinellas Park. Friendly staff that makes you feel like your family. Great food with a large selection to choose from. Family run, Jessi’s stays loyal to its customers and provides super service and fantastic family food. Jessi’s has an...Armenian flair but an all American Restaurant. Try it you’ll like it, I did!More

Went to the restaurant at 1 pm. The lunch crowd was gone. Five tables were occupied including us. Ordered hamburger and special of the day - lamb shank. After a long wait, I saw the hamburger was out sitting on the waiting ledge. I waited...and waited for someone to pick it up. The owner was standing next to it , saw it but did nothing. After sitting there for 3-4 min for the food to get cold, I finally got up and asked the owner if that was my order. Only then, she picked the plate up and brought to my table. I asked for ketchup for the fries but never got it. I finally got up and pick one up myself. There was one waitress and she was busy, the owner did not lift a finger to help. I worked as a waitress when I was in college, I would have never treated my order or my customers that way. The lamb shank my husband ordered came later and he said it tasted like freezer burnt food. He said “ I don’t intend to return.” So, a three stars rating is more than I should give.More

We stopped by here for lunch on the way to the beach because it was in the idine program. We were directed to sit in a section to the left on entry and ended up by the bathroom and the area where the cleaned dishes,...etc. It was ok, and the bathroom was old but functional. Everyone was friendly, especially the lady at the register who was from Albania. Our server, per the receipt, was Glynn (female). I think she was at the end of her shift so we got little attention. She took our orders, brought our drinks, and then was gone for over 5 minutes when it was refill time. I had the Mushroom Swiss burger and asked if they cooked to order. She said yes so I asked for medium rare but received something with no pink and medium well or more! I didn't say anything. The menu shows that the sandwiches include fries but then has a picture with homestyle potatoes so I requested that. I asked for no tomato and received none so except for the overcooked burger, it was as ordered. My other half had the Cuban sandwich and said it was one of the best ever. He had fries. We both had iced tea. When we were finished another long wait until she came by and then it took over 5 minutes for her to bring the check and 2 to go teas! There were lots of locals so they may seat them in the area to the right and give them more attention. I would return if in the area for lunch but would hope for more attentive service and my food cooked as ordered. On a positive note, they do offer free wifi. I just had to create a phony name and email to access. It's a 3 for me this time but could easily be a 5!!! Also Note: the receipt had the name of the restaurant as "JESSES FAMILY RESTAURANT INC"??? According to the email on the receipt and the idine listing, it is Jessis with an I???More

We had been here a couple of years ago and enjoyed it. Happened to be in the area so stopped for lunch. I ordered an omelette with spinach, feta and mushroom. My husband ordered a "rare" patty melt with friend onions and well done French...fries. My omelette was missing the spinach and appeared like the egg, feta and mushroom were all mixed together. Very unusual compare to your normal one where the ingredients are wrapped by the egg itself. My husband's patty was way overcooked and no fried onions. Fries were not well done either. Our server was apologetic and said she would have everything remade. We thanked her but said we would just like to leave. They were not that busy so no reason for the kitchen to mess up our ENTIRE order.More

Hi William, I am so sorry about this. I remember this very well. The cook did this on purpose to sabotage our business. We fired him along with our kitchen staff. We have a brand new kitchen staff and I personally took over the kitchen...More

Great service and decent portion sizes but lacking in any real flavor. If you are looking for a simple meal this is a great place to take your family with kids. Servers are great and friendly.

We absolutely love Jessi restaurant. This lovely diner has the quality to match. The staff is attentive and very courteous. Everytime we go there for lunch or brunch we can count on food to fresh and service prompt. Highly recommend.
