“Service is fine, food is good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

Pretty good for pub food. We had cod'n chips and some mussels, both were good, and better than others in Niagara. Food service was not quick, but the place was packed when we arrived, and the servers were very good, put our orders in quickly and brought drinks. Entertainment was amazing, beginning at 7 pm with an opening duo playing guitar/fiddle/banjo, getting their young relatives up to demonstrate Irish dancing and fiddling. We stayed in the same building and would not have even known there was a pub next door, as the soundproofing is very good. There are better restaurants in the area (Zooma for lunch, for example, and Twenty Restaurant if you want to get dressed up and spend big bucks), but this is decent food at a good price, great entertainment and atmosphere.

“food great, service? doesnt exist.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Its a shame that the jordan house tavern can have such incredible food, but such sub standard service. it was my wifes birthday and we decided to spend our night in niagara. Our friends told us of this establishment and said that the food was great and that we should try it out. So down from Toronto we drove. We arrived inbetween 5 30 and 6 pm. when we walked in there was no one there and so we sat ourselves anyways. about 15 min went by and we finally got our menus from our server. We ordered our beverages which for whatever reason took another 10 min to get to us. my wife pointed out the servers were standing by the bar talking and laughing. Then our beverages finally came. Im not certain if this place has features or specials, but how would we know seeing as how our sever seemed disinterested in us even being there. I suggested to my wife that we leave, but not knowing the area and being hungry, we stayed with much hesitation. our server finally came at this point it had been almost 20 min and finally took our order. ( mac and cheese is great) Our food came, our drinks empty. And again our server gone. We finally finished our meals, and she came and cleared our plates. Then out of nowhere dropped off our bill. No desert or coffee? Nothing offered?

All i have to say is that our friends were right about the food, but the terrible service is what made our decision to not return. Nor will our friends that told us to come there be returning at any point in time. This had to be the worst dining experience of our lives. Absolutely terrible!!!! The owner should be beyond mortified.

“Great for Pub Grub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

My husband and I ate here as a "Plan B" since our original choice was not open for business. The wine list is limited, while the beer choices are ample - as one would expect in a pub/tavern. We shared the Ceasar salad - good, nothing fancy, the Prime Rib Sandwich with poutine - delicious flavours and ample portion.

If you are in Jordan and want great pub grub, this is the place!

“Casual and unpretentious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

If you're looking for a casual and unpretentious dinner, this tavern fits the bill. It is a tavern after all. Don't expect gastronomy but if you do expect good quality and tasty dishes, it's hard to beat in the area for value. Prices are reasonable and beer and wine reasonably priced. Service was also friendly After some more formal dinners, this was a welcomed change. The Mac & Cheese for Grown-ups was an indulgence beyond the $11 price point.
