We went yesterday to Fords Fish shack and both bought foot long lobster rolls. The other half bought Maine style (with the mayo) and I ordered Connecticut style (with melted butter). My butter came on the side which was wonderful because I am on a diet and didnt use it. My lobster roll was fantastic and more than enough for... More

Great Craft beers and Calamari. The Labstah roll was a disappointment, but my prior experience was in Bar Harbor, Maine. Owner/Chef was very friendly. I would return and try the oysters on a half shell next time! My grand daughter enjoyed the fries and mini-corn muffins, my niece says she always get the fish and chips.

Came here for a large group lunch (9 people) and they were very accommodating. Our server was attentive and made sure we had our food quickly and correctly. The food was good and moderately priced for sea food. The food also seems to be pretty fresh. We will definitely be back.

We headed to Ford's for a mid-afternoon meal. Finding that brunch continued to be served until 3:00 pm, we opted for a mixture of the very late breakfast option and luncheon menus with mixed results. Our appetizers arrived quickly, but so did our entrees, with a considerable overlap in timing from the kitchen. The smoked salmon on the Salmon Eggs... More

We really enjoyed the food, lobster roll and Fried Shrimp and Scallops are favorites of ours. Think that the restaurant being in the confines of a strip mall limits it's atmosphere and ambiance. I had pictured something a lot more interesting as far as the layout, design. But we did love the food. Service was OK, not bad, but could... More

We dined here on Fathers' Day. Although we expected a long wait, the "call ahead" system worked well and we waited only about 15 minutes after arrival. Service was efficient, with the right questions being asked of us and informed opinions being given. We are from Maine, so we're picky about lobster and fried clams. Here, the clam dinner was...

We have been going here since it opened, as it's right in our neighborhood. As busy as it is on the weekend, you would never know that it was better when it first opened. Don't you hate that? We so want the restaurants close to home to be good, as does anyone. We just went there tonight, and though the... More

Order ed the lobster: waiter said they had the best fried lobster. I assumed it was going to be sauté in butter, NOT THE CASE. Tasted like old french fry grease. Daughter had the kids sirloin tasted like bad beef jerky. If this is the best restaurant in Ashburn we are going to be eating in alot.

The best seafood in Loudoun County IMHO. A little pricey, but fresh and delicious. I could eat there every night if the budget would allow. The only negative is the limited outdoor dining and small dining space.
