Love their crab cakes and the salmon ... both excellent. On the most recent visit tried the fish and chips and now I have a new favorite! Light, flaky, delicious! Yum! Great service, always. Can be crowded, and sometimes a little loud (maybe turn the speakers down one notch?), but worth it for such good food!

Lovely late Sunday lunch of shrimp tacos and a scallop basket. Both were excellent! This place is consistently good.

I am visiting my sons and we decided to try this place and I was pleasantly surprised at the taste and quantity of the meals. Try the mahi-mahi meal, you won't be disappointed. Excellent meals. Thank you

The food is delicious. There's a nice variety on the menu. My daughter commented that we must visit here often. Mind you we live six hours away! This is how much she liked it. Our server could have been more knowledgeable of the menu items and preparation. She actually missed a few opportunities to upsell because of it. I did... More

Great menu, knowledgable staff, and terrific, seasonal seafood dishes! We were celebrating a birthday and we had a plethora of options to choose from from start to finish.

We really liked the meal we had here. The homemade chips with lobster, blue cheese, etc. were incredible. That should have been enough....but we also had the Mainer lobster roll and some fish taco. Both were delicious.

Always outstanding preparation of all seafoods. Imaginative choices. Angry Mussels are a favorite. Very good service. Softcrabs are excellent. Being from Baltimore the crab cakes are close but not quite as good.

Ford's is a great restaurant for seafood. It has something for everyone and the fish is fresh. It is seafood stop with what you expect. Fried, broiled, grilled or boiled you can find it. Ford's also has a good selection of beers and drinks and is great for the family.
