Description: Jesse's is a unique and eclectic dining experience located in the quaint village of Magnolia Springs. Our main dining room is located where the Post office was housed in the late 1800's. Jesse's..."The Steakhouse Destination" for our guest who appreciate dry and wet aged steaks, fresh local seafood and signature entrees from our Executive Chef Rebecca Jordan. Jesse's has an extensive wine menu with over 100 different wines to choose from and signature cocktails. The new owners, Steve and Angie Coltharp, have worked with their Chef to ensure every item is not only made in house, but is of the highest quality ingredients. Jesse's has been listed by several periodicals: Southern Living, Coastal Living, Mobile Bay Monthly, and most recently Coastal Alabama. Jesse's is casual fine dining at it's best and we are kid friendly. Located 20 minutes from Fairhope, Gulf Shores, Orange Beach just off of highway 98 and highway 49. Reservations suggested.

I've eaten at Jesse's and the Cold Hole often but this was the first time from the new menu. It wasn't disappointing. We had lunch on a Tuesday. The restaurant wasn't overly busy which was nice. Service was as usual, attentive and knowledgeable. I had the duck poboy. It was wonderful. My father ordered the pesto salmon but wanted triggerfish instead of the salmon. The chefs were fine with this and the fish was cooked perfectly. My mother had a salad and it too was good. I have never had any complaints about the food when I've eaten here and this lunch only reaffirmed how much I like the restaurant. Dinner has also been spectacular and the oysters are to die for. Luckily it is still one of the few fine dining locations in our area that hasn't been exposed to waves of tourists and getting a table is pretty easy. I love everything about the restaurant and the bar(The Cold Hole side) and the market. It's a great location in a beautiful area of Baldwin County.

Jesse's Restaurant is a very good restaurant located in a quaint spot in Magnolia Springs. Has a full bar and a wide selection of wines. The menu is very broad offering a wide selection of seafood, steaks, lamb and other good Southern food. We had Shrimp & Grits and a Texas Steak that were very good. The Gumbo is not the best we have had. Wait staff worked hard at pleasing. Would recommend this restaurant.
