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.

About half way between Foley and Point Clear in Baldwin County, AL lies the sleepy little community known as Magnolia Springs. If you are anywhere nearby, the high quality of food and service at Jesse's will not dissapoint.

We had dinner the other night here, Daniella was our server. The service was great as always. The food was really good. We do go out to dinner from time to time and we will be back.

Great salad, great shrimp and grits, wonderful little community on the river. The lunch portion was just enough. Our waitress was so nice. We will go back.

Jesse's was great! We noticed this cute restaurant on our way to the beach for summer vacation. The chef hand selects fresh seafood every day and bases his specials on that delicious fresh seafood. We started with New Orleans Bar B Q Shrimp as an appetizer. It was very good! For the main entree I had an almond crusted Red Snapper with saffron risotto and asparagus which was one of the featured dishes on the night we dined there. It was delicious and was presented very nicely. My husband had the filet mignon with smoked Gouda grits, carrots and asparagus. Both meals were delicious. We chose a chocolate cake for dessert and it was divine. The atmosphere of the restaurant was very pleasant. It is not that far of a drive from Gulf Shores/Fort Morgan. It is located in the quaint town of Magnolia Springs. Highly recommend! ~Enjoy!!

OK, I've only eaten here for lunch, but it's worth it in every respect. It's worth the cost, it's worth the drive from neighbouring cities and it's worth the wait (if you have one). Truly good food from a small town, local restaurant that can make even a mundane family lunch feel like something special.
