love the snack bar

Still great "red" grilled got dogs as good as ever,and great coffee shakes. Also delicious hamburger baskets. Nice seating areas both inside or out under a shelter. Cruise nights weekly. Just like a drive in should be!

I had finally convinced my boyfriend to try a lobster roll and clams so we decided to go Jordans Snack Bar since I had been here in the past and really enjoyed it. The lobster meat was crunchy and did not taste fresh. Was very disappointed that we spent so much on the rolls and couldn't even finish because of... More

Jordan's Snack Bar is a must for fried clams. It is a snack bar where you order at a window and then you can eat in a separate building or you car or whatever. The fried clams that we had were the best that we have ever eaten. We were taken there by a native and it was well worth... More

We love their playground for the little kids and arcade for the older ones and their food is great but the prices are way to high for the average family of 4 to eat very often.

During our annual vacation to Maine we introduced our son and granddaughter to Jordan's....she especially liked the little arcade. Outdoor tables for fine weather and an indoor dining area for not so inviting weather

So I have been here a number of times throughout many years-so I am a repeat customer and this was one of my favorite places to go eat. I was sad to hear the owner passed and of course other relatives own it now. Higher prices, rude staff and less food. Not worth the trip anymore.

We loved it. First time visit but the ice cream was great. The staff was very friendly, even making a small cone for my 8 month old. We will definitely return!

This place has the best food and ice cream! If you like fried seafood, their basket dinners are THE BEST! You order from a walk up window then eat in your car or at one of the picnic tables or even inside if you want. This is a favorite of the locals and I know when out traveling that the... More

I enjoy a good drive in and from the crowds in front of the place I expected something amazing. What we got was really quite average and a bit overpriced for what you get. We had burgers, fish and chicken. All ok but certainly nothing to rave about. I did note the locals were primarily there for ice cream and... More

Everything is done with complete regard to customer service. Playground for the kids, Wednesday classic cars with music and dancing in the screened in building on site with a live band in the summer months. You order your food and wait for your number to be called. You can eat outside on picnic tables or choose to go inside to... More
