Disappointed. Crab cake had too much filler. Food truck crab cake was awesome and why went to restaurant. Stress martini half a glass. Asked to be moved from seat by front door. Moved to seat by patio door and kitchen. Asked waiter for ice it...never came.More

The lunch was very good and I was with my close friend who owns a moving company. The food was the highlight of the lunch, however, the female server we had was not professional plus made us both feel someone uncomfortable. She made fun of...me being from new England or something to that effect and, it was just very strangeMore

ATTN COSTCO SHOPPERS OF FORDS FISH SHACK GIFT CARDS After years of buying these cards and using them (making sure we tipped based on total cost), we were stunned to find out their new policy of only accepting 4 at a time at least at...the Ashburn location.. We experienced no such issue at Leesburg which we tried out for the first time..and it definitely had a buzz Ashburn lacks. I am planning to speak to Costco so they are aware and they should put some sign around these cards that say don’t expect to redeem more than 4. It’s a shame. When they were threatened with closure with the huge rent increases, loyal customers made calls and sent letters on their behalf. Guess that didn’t matter!!!!!!More

So good! The servers were so nice! We got the shrimp tacos, the salmon salad, and the kids hamburger. It was all super delicious especially the shrimp tacos. Perfect for a nice Sunday lunch

I finally made it out to this restaurant with a couple buddies for lunch. I had read and heard many good things about the place. They had a full crowd and it was a weekday. We ended up sitting over in the bar area. I’ve...been craving whole belly clams fried, and this is one of the few places that offers them. $16 for a pint which was a nice size portion. A friend ordered the angry mussels and they were extremely plump and delicious and the other friend ordered their shrimp roll. We shared their homemade potato chips as a snack before our lunch’s arrived and that was tasty but I’m not a big blue cheese fan and the lobster bits were almost undetectable. I ordered their deviled eggs and there were five halves FILLED w egg and two slices of candied bacon on the plate. We all thought the filling was a bit too sweet and I wouldn’t order them again. The bacon was perfect. My whole belly fried clams were a bit smaller than I was hoping but done very well; a light batter and perfectly cooked. I would order again. I wanted to try their fried oysters but was too full! All in all, a nice experience. I’ll go back for sure.More

Really quite disappointing- poor service and timing, mediocre food. Felt rushed and cramped. It’s a factory and about turning tables.

We did not enjoy our food & speed quite a bit -- clam chowder, calamari, popcorn shrimp, mussels were all disappointing. Service was good and ambiance as expected.

Lobster Roll: pricey lunch for mediocre taste. True Maine lobster rolls are made with only mayonnaise and lobster. That simple preparation allows the true lobster flavor to come through. But FFS normally serves it with some kind of spiced mayonnaise and chives or green onions....So I asked for them to make it with regular mayo. The flavor was bland, almost tasteless like the lobster might have been not quite on point. Perhaps that was the reason for the seasoning. Regardless, I can't recommend it as "fresh off the hook"More

We had 14 people.....the young man who waited on us didn't miss a beat. He got all the drink orders and food orders correct and didn't bat an eye when we ask for separate checks. The food is excellent and always hot and great tasting.

Stopped by the Ashburn location November 10th, Thursday evening after a business meeting and sat at the bar (Raquel V). Ordered a beer and my favorite angry mussels - all was good.  Ordered two lobster rolls and requested substitute corn on both orders to "go". ...These were for my wife and 90-year-old mother-in-law. Also ordered two desserts. Got home to Manassas and to our surprise - no fries - missed on both orders.  Then we noticed that the quantity of lobster was about half the portion of our dine-in experience at the South Riding location. (We order this once a month). I called that evening to share this bad news and a young man took by email and claimed that he would send a gift card. Nothing received Friday. Called again and spoke with John - Mgr trainee - still nothing!More
