Simple, inexpensive, decent seafood for the price so it is good value. This place won't blow your doors off but a casual place to get some seafood and a beer, it is perfect.

This is my go to spot for fried, broiled or boiled seafood. Great shrimp, oysters and scallops. I've been raised on their hushpuppies recipe from T&W Oyster bar so to me they're the best...try them dipped in beer!

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.

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