From the double portion of sea scallops to the fried shrimp was A-okay. Bit specific to the Jordan's, but the Emerald Isle seems to be learning how to cook seafood (weird, huh?). We'd go back but would not wait in line.

Jordans has been a staple on the island my whole life. The best and freshest seafood is here. The best hushpuppies anywhere! The servers are sweet and very attentive. This is your local, casual joint and you won't be anything but happy when you leave.

Excellent shrimp burger and clam chowder. The staff was friendly and funny. We sat at the bar in the Wolfpack country area. Good beer selection.

Fried oysters and broiled flounder. Just fine. Would return if convenient but not likely to seek it out.

Not worth it. Clam chowder had only 1 clam in it, no flavor. Shrimp platter was ok. Ribeye sandwich was awful, no flavor at all.

We got there about 15 minutes before closing and they still welcomed us and seated us. The dinner was great and they never tried to rush us. Will make a return to this place.

Family of 6 visited Jordan's for dinner last evening. Those who had seafood thought it was good. I do not eat seafood, but I did order their 3 piece chicken meal.
