Good lunch spot when time or convenience rank high. Only one menu item was caught in NC. Fish sandwich was average, but adequate.

Food was delicious and the free hush puppies were a great bonus:) The staff was extremely accommodating. Great place to take the family with very good portions and pricing. I will go again:)

Jordan's is a long time staple at this end of the island but it seems every time I go it gets a little worse. The service is subpar and the food is your typical fried seafood, nothing special. If you get tucked in the little back room it is hot and the atmosphere not so great. My daughter ordered a... More

This is traditional fried seafood at its best. I have eaten here several times and love the she crab soup and fried oysters as well as the flounder shrimp and scallops. Hushpuppies are the tiniest bit sweet. Atmosphere is basic fish house style. Very friendly staff with tats and quick checks on tables. Two bars, one for drinks and one... More

Shrimp, oysters, fish - lightly breaded and crisp with all the traditional sides. . .when you want a generous serving of traditional Carolina seafood, this is hard to beat!

It's fried seafood and french fries and hush puppies, very casual. Great for your fried seafood craving when starting out the vacation. The staff though were down to earth, genuinely nice people. Scallops were the only seafood Item I had that wasn't fried, they were sauteed but were delicious.

The only thing we had that I could recommend was the scallops; the side order was plentiful and very good. The hush puppies were actually very good too, as an accompaniment. Everything else was just okay, the fried items being the best of the bunch. Don't get a drink with ice unless you like the way island water smells. The... More

The service is great (from beginning to end), the decor not good, definitely in need of updating. The food: 2 people enjoyed, 3 average. The trout was fishy (and the green beans that came with it were really bad), potato was good; the shrimp was very good; the steak sandwich was very odd..a piece of thin steak literally on a... More

Our landlord highly recommended Jordan's and many reviews also highly recommended them; however, we must have caught them on a bad day. I had the fried fish and my wife had the crab cakes. Both of us were disappointed in how overcooked and dry these were. My aunt had the scallops and they were a bit tough. It was the... More

Had dinner at Jordans during our visit to Emerald Isle in May 2016. Food was delicious and wonderful. We loved the friendly atmosphere and had great service. Looking forward to going again in the future.

Thank Renee2241
