Decided to try Ford's Lobster amongst the many stellar options in the Mystic area. Have never been here before, but reviews said it was authentic and a favorite spot for locals. Those reviews were correct. The tuna tartare was scrumptious and elegantly served on half...More

When down this way, we generally go to Abbott's or their partners--Costello. Ford's is a tiny place and we went on a cold night when there is no outside seating, so we felt lucky to get seats for the six of us. The offerings are...More

It’s a bit off the beaten path, but it’s situated right along the river. I had the Clam Chowder, Noank style, which featured clear broth. It was excellent. The lobster roll had a quarter pound of lobster and was very good. The service was excellent!

This place goes beyond your traditional lobster roll and fish and chips. We had a lobster and advacado grilled cheese and fish tacos. Really well done and fresh. Nice indoor seating and a perfect view outdoor seating.
