“Seafood Magnifico”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

If you find a place with better sauces, please let me know. Should bottle their angry mussel sauce or offer it with linguini. Being from Florida with an abundance of seafood places to eat, I would choose Ford's above any I have found at home.

“We will be back.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Very casual New England style seafood. The fish and chips were very good. The petite sirloin on the kids menu was excellent. The buffalo fish wings were delicious.

“Great restaurant”

What an awesome restaurant. From the angry mussels to the crab cake. It was perfect. I love hot food and everything served was perfect. Can't wait to come back and try another dish!

“Wonderful Seafood!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

We have eaten at Ford's many times and always enjoy it! Salmon is excellent, and the oysters are always fresh, with a good selection to choose from. The menu is well thought out and service is good. There is sometimes a wait, but it is well worth it!

“Ok, but there is better”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

If you like to wait for a table because the space is small and if you like Bone Fish or Sweetwater Tavern's menus, then this is the place to go. Otherwise, wait less, get better service and eat the originals at other restaurants.
