Ford’s is where the locals go for a great meal! Serving up New England style seafood flair both for lunch and dinner! A consistent menu that rarely changes but offers daily specials. Friendly staff and moderately priced.

Had lunch with my daughter on New Year’s Day. The wait staff was very polite, friendly, and patient. We did a lot more talking than ordering. When we did finally order, the food came quickly and was delicious. I will definitely be going back.
