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.

Great fresh seafood with a pleasant atmosphere. They were very crowded so you need to be prepared to wait for a table if you're going during the summer. The portions were ample as was the service. I recommend the restaurant.

The food was really good and not terribly pricey -- given the fact that restaurants at the beach are typically quite expensive. The service was excellent -- and I'm a stickler for good service, tipping being what it is today! The waitress was very pleasant. (I would certainly go there again.)

Very understaffed with cooks with no taste buds. They fry literally everything even a shoe if you ask for it.

We avoid going to this place. Lower priced sea food but the sorry carpets and smell of fried food is hardly worth dining at. There are so many other places to eat on Emerald Isle that have much better food and atmosphere. I would only go here if I had many small children to corral.

We went to Jordan's because there was a two hour wait at our first choice. It has a fish camp atmosphere with Formica tables and low ceilings. Several sizes of each dinner are offered. After we were served we saw why everyone is offered the "senior" plate. The portions are huge! The waitress was extremely efficient and service was quick.... More

Great food! Great service! Portions are big and prices are right. Great kids menu also, for those finicky kids that don't like seafood. :) Tip-they asked our group of 9 if we wanted to sit in the bar so we did. It is like a room to yourself! And, the waiter at the bar was so awesome. This is not... More

Me the wife and kid ate a good meal. The waitress was awesome,left her a nice tip. When I paid the bill the owner was carrying on small talk as he saw what town I was from. I got the receipt and started to walk off when he reminded me of my card. As we were going through the door... More
