We were looking for a reasonably priced seafood place for a large group and saw this one. It wasn't our first choice, but since the prices were better here than at The Crab Shack, we opted to go here. Mistake. Prices were indeed quite reasonable, but there was absolutely nothing special at this place. For a place that is so... More

My husband and I had read reviews and felt a little unsure of the restaurant, but after looking at menu, on a yelp, decided to go! We are so glad we did! My husband had fried seafood platter and I had a hand patted delicious cheeseburger and mashed potatoes! Service is great, they bring a basket of hush puppies to... More

Very Casual restaurant . Have choice of eating in bar or restaurant. Modestly price menu. Oysters are on the menu and would recommend. Mostly fried food. Restaurant is nothing special. no atmosphere

.....This is mainly a tourist spot and is just a fry house, just about everything is fried, fish had bones and the oysters were soggy. The only thing we enjoyed was the hush puppies. We will not be back and we live local...

Restaurant was dead. All seafood was either poorly cooked or bland. Very overpriced for poor quality. Waitress was overly sarcastic and inappropriate the entire time (called those who ordered a beer 'alcoholics') Bathroom was dank. Hush puppies were alright.

Our family vacations in Emerald Isle yearly and we usually go down to Salter Path for our seafood meal with the whole large family. We decided to try Jordan's on a recommendation this year. First thing's first: this definitely did not feel like a seafood restaurant at the beach. It's on the main highway with a strip mall behind it... More

The management and service staff are very congenial. Helped when we had to expand our group from five to nine upon the arrival of an additional family. Food is good and a good variety. Prices are very reasonable for a beach resort.

I wanted to like this place since it is in Emerald Isle but just didn't happen. Service and seafood were awful.

Hot dogs are gross! They taste like straight water. And they were very busy when we went so maybe the seafood was good. Whatever you do don't order hot dogs.

I have never had a worst meal. I think they get their food from the local food lion, which is a block away. Do not go there. I would never recommend this restaurant. There are better restaurants on Emerald Isle. Let the outside appearance be your guide!
