My family has been vacationing at Oak Island for 20 years, and it's been a tradition to have at least one big family meal at Jones Seafood during our stay. The food has always been okay, not great, but this year it seems to have taken a turn for the worse. I ordered the pork chops, and they were so thin and tasteless that I almost sent them back (and I have never sent a meal back at any restaurant in my life). I didn't even know they could cut pork chops that thin (about an eighth of an inch and that is not a joke). Rice pilaf is no longer a choice, apparently, and the vegetables were canned, cold, and also tasteless. My daughter said her flounder was also bland and overcooked (and she has loved the flounder in the past). I don't know if they are having trouble keeping a good cook, but my entire family felt that the meal was a disaster. We can no longer recommend this restaurant to anyone. Two stars are due to the hush puppies which were decent and a reasonable salad with chunks of real blue cheese in the dressing.
