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!

I left and wound up with a terrible cold at the end of my vacation and not a single person enjoyed their meal at a 10 person table. They have fold up chairs, they serve applesauce in a plastic mottes container and their potato chips are bagged Tom's brand chips. This place is an absolute dump that relies on bums... More

just plain, nothing to write home about. If you want ok fried seafood it's just that, ok. wait staff is decent. Sweet tea is not good.

Like many other reviewers, our group found ourselves here because our first choice had a 2 hour+ wait. Jordan's was able to seat our group of 14 in under 45 minutes. At first, we were skeptical given the run-down outside appearance and dated indoor decor, however we were pleasantly surprised. Service was good, the menu had a little bit of... More

We ended up at Jordan's by default. We had a less than stellar meal 2years ago and decided not to go anymore. However, the wait at our other choices was too long so we went......and had a really good, hot meal with great service. We were pleasantly surprised. The price can't be beat and we all had different fish dinners.... More

Ate at the oyster bar and service was awesome and food was great. Broiled flounder very good and you get plenty of food for the money.
