Ford's is about to open their third location which is a testament to how well they are doing. For your appetizer course there is no place in the DMV where you can get better mussels. The Angry Mussels are cooked in a chorizo broth that makes them unbelievably delicious. The New England Cod, the different lobster roles and the daily... More

Typically good food. Mussels, salmon, crab cakes and lobster tails were all great. Not too crowded for lunch and they had special valentine's menu.

Rrecently went here for happy hour and had great food and drink! Outstanding value and the staff is equally wonderful. Had shrimp and the fish and chips; the price was great and the food better! A great environment for food and drink after a long day of work! Top notch place!

If you go there you have to get the Angry Mussels as a starter. The food is good and most of the time the service is as well. It gets crowded and you can do the call ahead.

Stopped by the Shack for pre New Years Eve prep. Great drinks on the happy hour menu. Loved the fried lobster tail and Angry Mussels

Ford's Fish Shack is a great place to dine with family and maybe something more intimate. The fish is always fresh and reasonably priced based on the market. Food is divine and service is great. The one knock on this place is the location. Parking is abysmal here. You have to be ultra aggressive in finding a parking spot here.... More

I had heard that this restaurant wasn't as good as it used to be so I was reluctant to go, but friends insisted that we try it. We had a wonderful time! Our waiter was attentive and even though there were eight of us, didn't mind that we were on separate checks. We each ordered something different, ranging from a... More

Fords offers outstanding seafood, but it's too far away for us frequent more than occasionally. However, I just received some good news that they will be opening a Ford's Fish in Lansdowne in a few weeks. I'm a seafood lover so I love everything on their menu, but my family tends to like the shrimp, crab cakes, fish and chips,... More
