We stopped here our first night on Emerald Isle. If you like fried food this is your place. We ordered the combo platter and were disappointed. When the platter arrived there was a pile of very small shrimp and bay scallops. Also a serving of clam strips. Coming from New England we are used to whole belly clamp not strips.

You know it is a good seafood restaurant when the first thing they do is bring you hush puppies, and they were good. For our meal we started with she-crab soup and raw oysters both were amazing. For dinner we had flounder and shrimp, again amazing. What I really like is that this is a small restaurant and all the... More

We had the she crab soup, eastern clam chowder and 1/2 peck of steam oysters. They have bottle beer only so I had some ice tea. The guy who shucked our oysters was very nice. Our meal was great and enjoy the others around the oyster bar. A very nice place to eat.

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

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
