Jesse’s is a unique place with a special history and proud tradition. Jesse’s sits among massive oaks in the village of Magnolia Springs, on the banks of the Magnolia River. We can be reached by boat on the Magnolia River where docks on every pier still have mailboxes. Our town has the only remaining mail delivery by water in the United States. We’re located just minutes from Gulf Coast beaches, the Eastern Shore on Mobile Bay and a 45 minute drive from Mobile.
Moore Bros. Store has been a very important part of Magnolia Springs’ history for the last 75 years. The current location was built in 1922 and served the community faithfully until it closed in 1993. Today it is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
Naming the restaurant “Jesse’s” didn’t need to be explained to the locals. Everyone remembered Jesse King, the beloved shopkeeper of Moore’s Store, who reportedly never missed a day of work for 60 years! He was always ready with a quick smile, a warm greeting and the latest tidbit of news. “Jesse’s” is a tribute to the loyalty and dedication Jesse King brought to the community.
