Good diner seafood

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... read 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

I have lived in Emerald Isle for almost two years, but somehow this was my first visit to Jordan's House of Seafood. I guess I wasn't paying enough attention - I thought this whole time it was a seafood market, and only this week realized it was a restaurant. My toddler and I were out for a walk at dinner-time,...

We had Jordan's via takeout on our first night in Emerald Isle. I had read the reviews about it being good seafood, so we wanted to give it a try. We decided to call and get takeout to bring back to our house, but alas...they don't answer the phone. So, my husband drove there and waited for our food. I... More

This is a nice little restaurant, one of the best in Emerald Isle, in fact. The place is small, but it is clean, the service is great and the food is very good. I have eaten there a couple of times and the experience each time was very good. l gave a 4 out of 5 for a couple of... More

My wife and I stopped in about 7pm on Sunday. We ordered senior shrimp and scallops. Both were great, shrimp were lightly breaded and delicious. Friendly staff. I was a little concerned about the negative comments on a few of the reviews but our experience was excellent and would recommend.

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
