Jesse’s Restaurant opens new location On The Bay

2023-05-08T10:41:08-05:00By |Food & Drink, News|

The owners and chef behind the Magnolia Springs landmark Jesse’s Restaurant are dropping anchor at Fort Morgan with a new casual fine dining concept. Every table has a view of the water at Jesse’s on the Bay, which opened along the stretch leading to the historic fort and tourist attraction. The executive chef over both Jesse's, Larry Agnew, pays painstaking attention to detail. He sources the restaurants' produce and proteins as nearby as possible. The kitchen ages its prime beef, heritage pork, and even Gulf fish to enhance its flavors. The new location in Fort Morgan boasts a raw bar featuring Alabama-farmed half-shell oysters and house-made fish ceviche. Both join the cast on the bayside restaurant’s ornate seafood tower.
