Summer Dining


Evening specials at Jesse's regularly feature organic vegetables, locally sourced meats & cheeses, and fresh sustainable seafood. Our chef is committed to responsibly using the best ingredients for our guests.

Summer season is shorter in New England so we take advantage of all the beautiful, warm, patio dining opportunities that we can. Bring some friends, enjoy some cocktails and have a relaxing dinner on the patio (before the snow falls again).

Enjoy the summer New England evenings on the patio.

about us


ABOUT US
A tradition in the Hanover community!

It all began with Jesse's Steaks, Seafood and Tavern. In July of 1976, Marc and Patty Milowsky, along with four other partners, founded a log cabin dinner house. A year later, the four other partners sold their interests and the Milowskys became the sole owners.

The original restaurant consisted of 86 seats, a 40 seat bar area, and an atmosphere reminiscent of the Victorian Old West. In 1981, Marc and Patty added a custom greenhouse to the building, which seamlessly connected to the main dining room. In 1990, Jesse’s expanded again with the addition of the Adirondack Lodge and Deck. And in 2008, a new brick patio in front of the restaurant added a charming outdoor dining space.

Jesse's serves hand cut steaks, seafood, prime rib, juicy burgers, flatbreads, sandwiches and much more. It is well known in the area for having the best all you can eat salad bar and freshly baked Sequoia bread. Jesse’s is open for dinner seven nights a week beginning at 4:30 and Sunday brunch at 10:30.

The next chapter started in 1983. The Milowskys took over the Town and Country Dress Shop in downtown Hanover, converted it into a 130-seat restaurant and bar and named it Molly’s Balloon. Molly’s is a popular gathering place, a favorite of Dartmouth students and locals alike. In 1998, with the help of Morris Nathanson Designs, the Milowskys gave Molly's a complete facelift, adding about twenty five more seats inside and a fifty seat outdoor patio. Molly's Restaurant and Bar is all grown up; a timeless college bar, complete with walls of Ivy League memorabilia, local sports photos and artifacts. The Milowsky’s vision of making Molly’s the unofficial Hanover Historical Museum and a great place to eat has come to life.

At Molly's, guests enjoy thin crust pizzas and entrees cooked in a wood-fired brick oven, pasta dishes, the best burgers in the Upper Valley, fresh salads, wonderful finger food and appetizers, and homemade desserts. Molly's is open for lunch and dinner seven days a week. Molly's Restaurant

With two successful restaurants under their belt, the Milowsky's decided it was time to put them under one umbrella. And so, The Blue Sky Restaurant Group was founded. Why Blue Sky? Why not!!
