First of all, I do not like seafood. I went there because my lady friend wanted clams. As I waited for her order, I noticed the list of shakes that were offered. Not your usual list of suspects, such as vanilla, chocolate, blah, blah. I saw banana, raspberry and cherry to name a few. I ordered the cherry. Unbelievable!!! I... More

My first crab roll at Jordan's is almost a rite of spring. They are delicious, and it is a treat in April to sit out in the sun at one of their picnic tables and enjoy.

What a waste. The food is a fail, the service is non existent, and it there were other options this place would be out of business. And it is and the proprietors should be arrested for crimes against the environment.

This is a local favorite, but I've never really been blown away by anything I've tried. It's a fun place to eat, the food is average, and they're typically slamming busy.

My husband and I ALWAYS get lobster rolls there when we're on vacation. They get busy but that's part of the charm of a clam house. This one is clean! We drove by one morning and there were teenage employees on their hands and knees pulling grass out of the cracks in the pavement. The out buildings are spotless if... More

My whole family and I love Jordan's when they are open, and we go at least twice a week. They have fantastic Haddock that is great both baked and fried. The lobster rolls are divine, however slightly pricey. But the hands down best is the cheeseburger basket. I could eat that from now until the cows come home! Jordan's has... More

After moving to the area, it wasn't long before we had to go to Jordan's since it seems to be all the rage. I can't say it was bad, but it was certainly disappointing to receive a very average just-what-I-would-have-expected meal when it seems to be a local favorite. You should go once based on what others say; If you're... More

Stopped by on our way to the Schoodic Peninsula, and this was the perfect place for a quick roadside cheeseburger. Nice tables outside for relaxing, small playground for the kids, and a big enough area to walk the dogs. It didn't hurt that we spied local Hancock musician Chris Ross at Jordans during our visit halfway to wonderland! :-)

We stop in for lunch on the way to Bar Harbor Maine. Having never been there before, I went ahead and ordered both the fried clams and fried scallops. When they arrived I was shocked to see how large the order was. It was a good thing that I had missed breakfast that morning! Both the fried clams and the... More
