My family group of 7 adults, one 7 year old and one 2 year old had a wonderful, unhurried meal at Jesse’s. We had eaten there a number of years ago and were more than pleasantly surprised that the food and service quality was even...More

Food was fine. I mean, fine in a standard, pre-packed, solid ingredients not totally ruined sort of way. A bit (a lot) unimaginative, for sure. Bread and butter which tasted like it was last innovated in 1976. (This is not somewhere that takes pride in...More

We've been dining at Jesse's for 35 years -- first as a student at Dartmouth College and now as parents. I think that if I were to find photos (and perhaps a menu) from the 80s, it would match pretty closely with the experience today:...More

Thank you for your 4 stars. We also think hard about the tension between keeping the nostalgic, classic feel, and the potential benefits from infusing more modern and innovative menu options and ambiance. We hope to make the quality of food more consistent as we...More

The atmosphere is somewhere between clubby and pubby. It's a large restaurant with numerous dining rooms and a hopping bar. It's apparent that crowds have frequented Jesse's for years because the decor is rapidly heading past homey to tired. The food is ok, nothing special...More

This is a very cozy restaurant in a beautiful setting. They have several rooms with a few tables so it’s very private. It’s a log cabin feel to it. The lighting is dim and the waitstaff are exceptional! They have an incredible menu selection and...More

I'm so sorry, we're closed so that team members can spend time with family. I don't know of any other restaurants that are open in the area. You might have some luck with Hanover Inn or Lyme Inn or Common Man. Happy Holidays!
