“Good Lobster Roll”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

Jordan's seems to have everything blueberry. Blueberry cinnamon rolls, blueberry pancakes, blueberry muffins, etc. Even though I love blueberries, I happened to be in there for lunch so I ordered my favorite Maine lunch...a lobsta' roll.

Many places use the New England-style hot dog roll for it roll. Here they use a more substantial sub roll. That leaves plenty of room for a lot of lobster meat. The meat was mostly claw meat which is my favorite part of the lobster and it was piled high. The french fries were done perfectly. French fries seem like such a little thing but not many places do them correctly. They should be crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside, Jordan's nailed it.

I thought the prices were very reasonable and the food was good. Apparently the locals think so also, as there were a lot of locals in the restaurant when we were there.

“Great breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

If you eat breakfast at Jordan's you must try the pancakes with wild blueberries on top and blueberry syrup. The coffee was good and the service was excellent. Really enjoyed watching the cooks take the orders verbally not written. I even bought some blueberry syrup.

“Good breakfast spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

There was a good variety of food offered and service was better than average. Blueberry muffin did not appear to be "homemade" as it was not light like others I've had. They offered skim milk which I appreciate. It was certainly better than the breakfast at our motel!

“Heavy expensive pancakes”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013 via mobile

Been eating at cafe this way all week so tried something different. Wrong move the pancakes was very heavy dough and more expensive. The booths are very small and hard. On a plus side the service was good.
