Have made many trips to Jordan's over the last few years and found it consistently good. It's basic Carolina coast seafood, fried (broiled or baked available), with the usual trimmings. Prices are reasonable, and service usually good. They'll have an occasional off-night, like most restaurants, and it helps if you know what's in-season, to get the best local seafood. Don't... More

I will be succinct here. My family was actually laughing hysterically by the time we left because the whole experience was so poor. In a nutshell: tasteless, greasy food, surly staff, unclean dining environment, slow service. I'm sorry to say it's now a family joke, and we would never go back.

First off, the staff was quite friendly but as time went on we found that they spend a lot for time jabbering w/customers instead of doing what they should be doing! Most people vacationing, eat out and when they do they are ready to have a meal due to hunger, so they want a place that has good food, clean,... More

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.
