Went in on Sunday for the New Brunch. (9/12/2010)
Very nice - service was great - food was presented well and tasted great.
Server was very friendly and the manager stopped by to chat after our meal.
I have paid more for much less... My wife and I agreed this was a great find.
We've been to Jesse's many times over the years and have always had a delicious meal. Last weekend we celebrated a special anniversary there. I called in advance to make reservations and explained the special circumstances. We ended up with a super table, great service, great food (tavern salmon & prime rib were group favorites). The waitstaff even remembered to wish my parents the best on their 50th anniversary. Desserts were awesome. Thank you Jesse's for a really special evening!
We eat out almost every night when we're at home in Dallas. And we've eaten out almost every night in the three months that we've been in this area. We had reservations for 6pm Valentines evening. We walked in at 5:58 and were seated immediately even though the place was packed. Our server (Lea) was prompt, professional, friendly and efficient. We each ordered our steak medium-rare and they were both prepared absolutely perfect. The only negative was the lack of parking spaces in the crowded parking lot. We're glad that we resisted the temptation to go elsewhere when we couldn't find a parking spot. We were both very satisfied with our experience.
Went to Jesse's on 11/24/07 on a referral from an aquaintance in the Pocono's, only 20 miles from our house in Woodstock, and found the food to be excellent, service very friendly and efficient, value outstanding, and a pleasant atmosphere. Very nice experience.
This used to be a place that we went to for special occasions, but it has gone downhill. Last Sunday, we had the worst meal ever there. It wasn't like anything was cooked wrong and needed to be sent back. It was just bad quality steak. And where is the filet mignon? This is supposed to be a steak place, but I can buy a better steak myself at the chain grocery store. I think everything is frozen, but at prime prices.
We had dinner here this past weekend. All of entrees were terrible,ribs were burnt,filet over cooked, sent back for rare and meat came back 40 min. later and well done again. I cancelled my order and suggest you skip this restaurant and try another down the street on s. main street in Hanover.
We have eaten at Jessese's a half dozen times over the years. The food is generally good but the service is horrible most of the time. We were there this month for my wifes birthday. we were seated in the bar. Service was slow to arrive. The waitress was pleasant yet slow at getting our order initially for drinks and salads. When she realized she had forgottten our salads. she did apologize and only then submitted our entree order- so she said. Five minutes later she arrives with our salads. we had barely begun to eat our salads and she returns with assistance bringing our entrees. The manager was carrying one of the entrees. He said something to the effect of being too soon, but put the plates down and quickly left. Dessert was not memorable.
Jesse's was recommedad and is promoted as a fine dining experience. However, our dinners included 1) under baked bread, 2) greasy, under cooked salmon and 3)rare/raw beef (ordered medium, returned twice and finally served well done.)
We recommend the other fine dining restaurants in Hanover and Lebanon.
My husband and I ate here last winter. It was the best dining experience we ever had. The food was delicious, scrumptious and mouthwatering. The waitor was cheery and eager to please. He arrived at our table as if on cue. We were never left waiting for service for a moment. The desserts were brought out on a samplers tray. They all looked so yummy and the tray itself was something to take notice of! Such elegance! I will definitely go here again and again. I highly reccommend this place to all I meet. We were so pleased with the entire experience we left the waitor a $20 tip. To get a full feel for the atmosphere just take some time to eat there. You won't regret it.
