My co worker and I visited this place with a part-time local, so I didn't even look at the menu. We went in for oysters, and that is definitely what we found. It is definitely a place where you can expect the food to be good, and the service to be spot on. There is a nice cozy raw bar... More

I was with a group of seven, and I was the only one ordering the oysters on the half shell. The others were getting fried seafood. I ordered two dozen and got the first dozen prior to the others getting their orders. As they were finishing, our server told me they were just getting around to my second dozen. I... More

Our family has loved going to Jordan's for over 15 years & it has always been consistently good food, good service, good prices. The seafood is always fresh, lightly breaded, great hush puppies, good portions. My favorite thing is that they also have seasonable items also like spots, sea mullet, local steamed oysters that are all local favorites. Hope to... More

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...
