Good Find!

I had their crab cakes entree and calamari for an app -- both were great. My friend had the fish tacos and homemade blueberry lemonade -- both were delicious! Overall good service and good food.

My friend took me out to dinner here and I must say it was fabulous!!! I enjoyed every bit of my meal and my waitress was really great. Don't remember her name but we did leave her a good tip and she said she had just moved there from Roanoke, VA. We started with appetizers of angry mussels and calamari... More

Went there with friends. The food and atmosphere were fine, but we were not impressed. If the fish, location or view was something special, I would expect the prices they charge, but it isn't.....it is in a strip mall along a busy road.

We were riding by and noticed the place. After running some errands, we knew we'd be passing by and decided to stop and try it. We are glad we did. We arrived close to 1PM on a weekend and there was a 15-20 minute wait...or you could sit in the bar area or at the elevated seating around the place... More

If you are looking for a fun and family friendly restaurant you can do a lot worse than Ford's Fish Shack. Located in a strip mall near Route 28 it is a convenient location with plenty of parking. Beware though that it can get very busy, especially at weekends, so calling ahead can help avoid disappointment. The interior is decorated... More

Great food and service. Appetizers were exceptional and steak was perfectly done one of the best restaurants in the area!

I am happy to say that I have been an avid fan of Ford's Fish Shack in Asburn from its opening. My most favorite place for food and drink.

We go here often when we have a need for good seafood. Kids love the fish tacos and fish and chips. My wife typically gets thee lobster special. Typically roll or tails. Good raw oysters and steamed clams. They do take reservations. A must as they're busy every night.

My husband and I tried it and found it greasy and not to our liking. But several of our friends do like it, so we gave it a second try and still felt the same way! We will not be going back a third time...
