“So Glad My Friend Took Us”
Reviewed 27 August 2014 via mobile

This place was great!!! I can't believe how many times I've passed by here and never knew this was here. Everything was excellent and we all loved our choices. I highly recommend the shrimp and grits. It's not very far off of Gulf Shores Parkway but feels like a small village, calm and peaceful. Make reservations during the tourist season.

“Great!”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

You will not be disappointed! Five girlfriends visiting the beach and had heard of Jesse's so we made reservations.....so glad we did! By 6:30 every table was filled. Our waiter told us all tables except two were reserved. I cannot remember our waiter's name, but he was a very nice older gentleman and was so interesting and very informative of the town. The food was awesome and plenty to share. We had the Jack Daniel steak and it was wonderful. Beautiful little town. We will be back for sure!

“A must do-over every time we visit Orange Beach!”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

We had fried green tomatoes and Duck poboy. Both excellent. Don't be in a hurry when you visit - a drive around the neighborhood and walk to the Springs is a must! We'll be back!

“Best Salads Ever!”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Wow, we happen to be driving back from Mobile Alabama to our vacation rental in Perdido Key and somehow managed to get on a back road. We were getting hungry and my daughter Googled restaurants and came across something called Jesses. We really didn't care what it was, we just wanted to eat. It was like an oasis in the middle of what appeared to be a country road (we were from out of town and we did not know this part of the country at all). We were seated in this beautiful glass enclosed atrium. We each ordered a salad and let me tell you, both had to be two of the best salads we have ever had. No kidding, the fish was cooked perfectly, the dressing was just the right amount, the lettuce and others items were as fresh as they can be and it was served by a tremendously nice server. One of the best meals on the trip without a doubt. Not only would I double Highly recommend this restaurant, I want the chef to relocated to my town!

“Wonderful experience.”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

Jesse's is about more than the food - which was amazing. It is a very quaint old farmhouse with great ambience. The waitstaff is very professional while also having great southern charm. We sat on the glassed in porch and the views were beautiful.

But you do go to a restaurant to eat, so about the food. The duck and goat cheese spring rolls were delicious and perfect for sharing. The wedge salad was made with romaine lettuce and was wonderful. But the pierce d'resistance was definitely the petite Delmonico steak. It was prepared perfectly and was fork tender.

Jesse's should be on everyone's list when in the area.
