Reviews for Jesse's Embers

Oh my goodness! What a great small restaurant with an amazing atmosphere. My server was so helpful and friendly, stating she had worked there 14 years! The owner was out and about greeting and upon leaving asked how good our meal was. My meal was phenomenal, I had an 8oz sirloin with fried shrimp and a baked potatoe plus a salad. The croutons were homemade, made fresh everyday and so delicious. This was my first time at Jesses and I am totally impressed,My fiancé and I will full review

Clean, with cozy atmosphere. Safety barriers made the space feel a little more crowded, I think, though it was busy when we visited. Our wait service was excellent, and our only complaints about the food can easily be chalked up to a busy night and our group being fairly large.

We found this place while driving down Ingersoll.  The place looked like a dive from the outside.  Once we got inside the place was clean and they had shields up for covid on the booths.  The joint was small but they did a nice job of table arrangements. The staff was friendly and prompt.  We had the rib, French dip, and Ember Burger and they were all amazing.  We had onions rings for an app. They were old school deliciousness!!!
Definitely recommending this joint full review
