I returned to Jordans after over 10 years absence. Boy, was I disappointed. I brought along a friend who had never eaten there telling him the food was wonderful even thought the building was lacking in decor. Dinner was a huge disappointment - rubbery fried flounder, cold baked potato, and skimpy limp salad. Fortunately, the basket of chilled spiced shrimp... More

If you want good fried seafood, Jordan's is the place to go! It is a local fish camp wth modest decor and atmosphere, but very friendly and attentive servers. The portions are generous. The fried seafood is very lightly battered, allowing the flavor of the food to rule the day. The prices are good when you consider how much you... More

We visit Emerald Isle twice a year and never miss visiting Jordan's for their Combo dinner called the House Special. It serves 2-3 people easily! Has all our favorites... Oysters, clams, Big scallops, deviled crab, flounder, shrimp. Check out our photo to see how they load the plate! Love the hot fresh hush puppies they serve while you wait for... More

I ordered a fried scallop sandwich and told the waitress the scallops tasted bitter. The waitress told me that there was nothing wrong with the scallops and essentially said it was my problem. I researched it later, and found that scallops are often sold "wet," meaning that they have been soaked in sodium triphosphate to preserve shelf life. In order... More

When I am in an unfamiliar place, as I was at Emerald Isle, I put a lot of confidence in my experience with restaurants. If there's a large crowed in the parking lot at dinner time, then it's probably going to be good food. The parking lot at Jordans was jammed, so I expected a nice experience. Instead, I got... More

We've been coming here off and on for a while and it is because of the food & the service. From the warm hush puppies that come with every meal to the dessert or after dinner coffee, there is never a lack of a friendly smile. This trip we split a chef's salad, she had stuffed shrimp with fries &... More

Our family brought us here on our vacation. We wanted to experience the oyster bar and this place does not disappoint! The guys in the bar were awesome, encouraging us to try different things and explained what each thing was. The food was outstanding, in fact we ended up going back again. I highly recommend it.

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!

Thank Sabrina H
