Choosing your Dining Area

 Tented wedding on the grounds at Jesse's

Tented wedding on the grounds at Jesse's

We accommodates large parties during regular business hours and we open the restaurant during off hours for your special event. We can make arrangements for private use of the entire restaurant or we can set up a beautiful tent on the lawn for your event. Jesse's is the perfect location for a business meeting, office celebration, rehearsal dinner, intimate wedding, family gathering, or any celebration.       

During regular business hours, Jesse’s has two group dining areas. Each provides distinctive atmospheres and accommodations.  Please review each room’s features to determine which area would suit your group and its needs most appropriately.

“The Greenhouse” is a semi-private dining area, tastefully adorned with lush greenery. Its many windows fill the room with natural light. This area is located down a few stairs from the main dining level and accommodates 30-35 guests comfortably. Groups that desire private dining will be required to satisfy a food and beverage minimum of $500 Sunday - Thursday and $1000 Friday & Saturday. Non-private bookings and daytime (off hour) events are excluded from minimum requirements. Private Sunday Brunch reservations require a guaranteed guest count 48 hours prior to the event.

“The Adirondack Room” is comfortably decorated in the style of a cozy New England cabin, complete with a fireplace. This is Jesse’s largest private dining area. The room seats up to 75 guests for a private event and can accommodate smaller groups for semi-private dining.  This room is adjacent to an outside covered deck, which seats approximately 25 and is perfect for cocktails and appetizers (weather permitting). Groups that desire a private dining area are required to satisfy a food and beverage minimum of $1100 Sunday - Thursday and $1800 Friday & Saturday. Semi-private bookings and daytime (off hour) events are excluded from all minimum requirements. Private Sunday Brunch reservations require a guaranteed guest count 48 hours prior to the event.

Jesse's Steakhouse is situated on a beautiful property with a wooded backdrop. Outdoor tented events can be coordinated. The entire restaurant can be reserved for large private events of up to 300 guests.
