Soft Shell crab was an experience

OK, I am from the Midwest and seafood is generally flown in with the same old types and cuts. So, at the urging of my waitress, I decided to take a flier on the soft shell crab for lunch. It was good, although it is never going to replace a nice filet. The amazing thing at Jordans is the... read more

By far some of the worst food ever. How do you ruin an iceberg salad with packaged salad dressing? Ask this place they figured it out. Food was all pre-made frozen food. They could not even cook frozen food right. Applesauce even came in a pre-packaged potion. My god at least buy a jar and spoon some out in a... More

Service was great at lunch (party of 10), food prices average, and food was a bit better than average

Love going to Jordan's and splitting the seafood platter with another person. It has all the seafood choices, e.g. Shrimp, scallops, crab cakes, flounder, calamari, etc. It is one dish with more than 2 people with normal appetites can eat and it is sort of like a seafood buffet for two, i.e. a great value.

The service was top notch, seafood was great, but I had a tough time enjoying the food due to the noise. The large food portions kinda made up for the high prices.

Can't count the number of times I have visited Jordans. They have great food and excellent service. It is also a great bargain. I love Jordans and highly recommend.

Overpriced; my seafood tasted "frozen" and was barely cooked and completely unseasoned. Nothing out of the ordinary with these extraordinary costs!

My husband, toddler son and I ate here one night while vacationing. Of course I was craving some type of seafood and settled on the deviled crabs, which were smaller than I was used to, but were pretty good. Pricing for some things where pretty steep as expected, but overall not a bad experience.

Disclaimer: I am not a seafood expert and I cannot tell what is frozen vs. fresh. Our party of adults and young children ate here on vacation and really liked it. It is a small, local place with friendly staff and efficient service. We ordered shrimp, flounder, scallops and their snow crab clusters and everyone liked their food. It hit... More

My wife and I had the fried popcorn shrimp. I liked how there wasn't too much breading on the shrimp but they didn't taste great. The French fries weren't cooked all the way through. However, the wait staff was excellent and always kept our drinks full.
