“Great casual party place”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

We had a Saturday afternoon gathering of 40 or so friends and relatives at Jesse Oaks. Barb of their staff was excellent in helping make the arrangements in advance and making our guests feel at home. We definitely got to relax! The party was planned for the expansive outdoor eating area, and they even pre-prepped an indoor room in case of rain. Service was outstanding. Whatever we needed, Barb was right there to help us and our guests. She even timed the appetizers and later the food very well over the course of the three-hour party, and had any leftovers available for us too.
Food was good, and they had eight or nine good beers on tap plus all the regulars in other forms.
This is a VERY casual place, and most of us were way overdressed for the location. There are smokers in the outdoor public areas, who were very polite in avoiding our non-smoking party. The cost per person was very reasonable, too. Overall a very pleasant and economical way to share an afternoon with our guests.
