Recently my wife, daughter, and I went to Emerald Isle, NC for a week. Since we had never been there before, we always like to try out a couple of local restaurants. We came along Jordan's by accident, as we had left another establishment that told us there would be a 90 minute wait. Jordan's is located on the main... More

We all rated this our best meal of the week!! Plus the hushpuppies were the BEST!! I wish I could remember our servers name, but she... More

A group of us went for dinner. I ordered the bay scallops with green beans and baked potato. The bay scallops were a bit over cooked , but the rest of the meal was good. Everyone else's dinner seemed to be good. Our waiter was great! I have eaten at many seafood restaurants and overall this place was average.

We went for lunch expecting simple fried seafood meals but couldn't eat it. The flounder tasted bad, small scallops were mushy, French fries tasted like old fryer greese and coleslaw had no taste. The waitresses said everything was done correctly and assured us the fryer greese was changed regularly. We paid full price and left to find lunch again. We... More

The staff here is always excellent and the food is as good as it gets. You can't beat the Jordan's special. It's more than two people can eat.

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
