Jourdan River Steamer is located on a very scenic bend in the river with indoor and outdoor dining areas . Outdoor areas are cooled by ceiling fans and heated by gas fired overhead heaters when needed. Reservations are required but we’re no problem to get....Upon arrival we were greeted and brought to our table , an outdoor deck area - very nice, very clean. The menu is abundant ! We made our choices and within minutes our food arrived . Mine the Lobster Kadobster, Hera a combo plate, both presented very luxuriously. Portions were adequate but not on the large side. Tasty but not a “ oh wow, this is good “ taste. Service was EXCELLENT at JRS. Our server Dawn was the perfect server, explaining the dishes prior to ordering and took great care of us the whole time. Other staff also checked in on us during our meal. A very nice touch. Desserts were both great - Creme Brûlée and Chocolate Mousse Cake, Overall location 10, service 10 , food 7. Total experience was great and we will recommend JRS to everyone.More

Happened across the steamer by chance and so glad we did. The restaurant is really nice and the staff is phenomenal oh yeah and the food is better than the prior two mentioned. Our water was awesome, he knew the specials and drinks of the...night backwards and forwards. He was very personable and told us he had worked there for a long time and it wasn’t because he had to but because of the restaurant its-self. He then explained when and where they get their seafood from and how fresh it was. I was really impressed by the knowledge of our waiter. I alway like to know when and where our food comes from. Being in the coast you’d think all seafood would be local but that’s not always the case. We started off with the hot crab dip, it was really really good. Will get it again for sure My wife got the Dungeness crab and Royal red combo and she loved it. The seasoning was spot on and the reds were huge. I got one of the nights specials Tuna steak on top of some greens and wasabi mashed potatoes. The tuna was seared and seasoned perfectly and the potatoes were so good. It all paired perfectly together. To finish the meal off we had the cream brûlée, it was excellent as well During the meal we had multiple servers making sure we as well as our neighboring tables were good. We had the chef come through making sure we were happy with our meal and I believe the owner came though as well checking on everyone. You don’t get that in many places any more. More should do this. It was a really nice dinner. And a place we will be going back to. There are so many things on their menu that I want to try.More

First time visiting the Jordan River Steamer (but won’t be the last). My son had been several times and wanted to share the experience with me. From the moment we stepped in the door, everything was perfect—service, quality, and atmosphere. The absolute best seafood restaurant...I have ever been to—and I live in New Orleans, so that says a lot!!!More

Definitely my favorite! No matter what you choose on the menu, you simply can not go wrong. The food is amazing, drinks, beautiful view, and the staff is very personable and friendly. You want to go out to eat and listen to live music, be...sure to check them out on the weekend and grab a table at the bar. It is Sunday and you are enjoying a day on the boat on Jourdan River with the family, dock the boat and take the family for some good food. This is one that restaurant you will visit often.More

Perfectly seasoned gumbo, creamy shrimp & spinach soup, crisp and cold house salad with artichoke parmesan dressing, sweet Royal Reds, exceptionally flavorful potatoes, and.... do not miss the bread pudding w. a kiss of Jack Daniels. Great iced tea too. I have a feeling I...could eat anything on the menu and be very happy. Great ambiance, especially lighting and music choice. Excellent service. Suggestion to management: staff may want to wait to vacuum floor until closing time?More

Had a large party, staff was wonderful, didn't have to wait long in between courses or refills of drinks. Large portions of food. Had the Rib Eye and added in the Snow Crab. Sides were steamed broccoli and cauliflower along with fried sliced potatoes and...onions. The crab was delicious. The rib eye was ordered medium rare but came medium and a bit tough. The potatoes were a bit over done also. All the food had great taste, not worth complaining about. Chocolate mouse was very good.More
