Not bad

The cold slaw was excellent, but the fish was so so. Might give then another chance. The waitress was good, but we ate on the late side.

If you are looking for good seafood at the beach, pass this one by. I ordered fried shrimp and bay scallops. No breading, greasy and over cooked. Beer served in a bottle.

We always go to Jordans. the best fish and service on the island. Quick, Quality,food. We have been going here since 1995 and have yet to get a bad meal or poor service. They are excellent. Don't worry if there is a line outside, they serve you so quickly you will be inside in a minute.

There wasn't anything terribly wrong with Jordan's, but nothing exceptional either. I must say though, the hush puppies they serve you are delicious. Service is good, and it's sort of diner-ish. We had seven people and we found it to be a little expensive for what it was. The she-crab soup is good, the onion petals were good also, but... More

A friend had recommended Jordans to my wife and I. Since we were passing through Emerald Isle on the way to Pine Knoll Shores we decided to stop. We had actually gotten to the restaurant about an hour later than we had planed and were at the start of the dinner rush. Still, it didn't take but about 10 minutes... More

I first went to Jordans a few years ago when my chldren and i were here on vacation. A local recommended it. YUCK! We were all disappointed in everything we ordered and vowed not to return. This year, we decided to give it a try again because it seems to get many positive reviews. I don't know what is happening... More

To understand this restaurant, you have to understand Southern diners. What you're going to get is good basic food in a hurry from a no-nonsense waitress who's as friendly to you as you are to her. The restaurant is just what it looks like: itself. We chose to sit in the cozy bar area, which had the bar, inhabited by... More

I have dined at Jordans on several occasions, and have yet to be disappointed. The entire staff delivers a true hospitality experience, and the food is always fresh and delicious.

A friend, who winters on EI had recommended Jordan's. Though we weren't sure we'd like it from checking things out online, we decided to give it a try. Sometimes you're pleasantly surprised... Anyway, we walked in and the hostess was very nice and seated us. Not much at all in the atmosphere department. Then it took forever for the waitress... More

We love Jordan's oyster bar. There's not much seating so it may be hard to get into the back but it's worth it. Their oysters are pricey but delicious! Where else can you meet a group of strangers and have a great time while your oysters are shucked for you and served with hot drawn butter and cocktail sauce other... More
