Our food was good, service was good, and we enjoyed our time at Ford's. Get the Mac and Cheese - it is one of the best ever. If you have a Ford enthusiast, just the place to go!

The place is ok, the service was good but All food extremely greasy. We had the wings, French fries and burger. I don’t recommend.

Had looked forward to in person dining here after having great take out. Appetizer was ok, not great. Margarita was pretty sour as they go. Ribs were a TOTAL fail. Even a beaver couldn’t knaw through them and they were cold and dry. Worst ever....Although they were credited to our bill, it was still $60 including parking and we had to pay for an actual edible dinner elsewhere. Suggest a hard pass.More

We were in the mood for a good buy and we definitely found it. On vacation I like to eat downtown or at the beach. The downtown area has really improved over the 25 or more years we have been coming here. This restaurant was...nice vibe, not too crowded, open air options for tables. We had $9.99 burgers , my daughter had the macaroni and cheese and we had a plate of nachos. Nachos were a Bbq flair. My family liked it but I wasn’t sure about it. I had a sangria margarita which was delicious! I would definitely come back. Our waitress Syd was lovely and hardworking. They validate the parking in the garage Nextdoor. Nice selection of drinks and beer. Happy hour prices were great!More

Ford's Garage is a GREAT place to grab burgers - and with an abundance of choices, there is something for everyone! They offer indoor and outdoor seating... I recommend sitting outdoors as there is plenty of shade and more room to enjoy yourself. Our server...was friendly and polite. For an appetizer we selected the Ford's Original Nachos (Grilled Chicken with Bourbon BBQ sauce with Ford's Classic Cheese Blend, Pico de Gallo, and Jalapeños on White Corn Tortilla Chips Topped with Bourbon BBQ Sauce) - DELICIOUS! Our only issue was that our appetizer came out at the same time as our meals, so we were unable to thoroughly enjoy the Nachos. For our meals, my wife ordered the Fried Chicken Sandwich (Crispy Fried Chicken Breast, Honey Mustard and Pickle Planks on a Brioche Bun) and Ford's Signature Wedge Fries. I went with the Double Stack Roadster (Two One-Third Pound Burgers, American and Provolone Cheese, Applewood Smoked Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato, and Mayo, on a Toasted Brioche Bun) and Ford's Signature Wedge Fries. We really liked our meals! Mine was loaded with flavor and mouth watering juices! I just recently discovered that there is a Noblesville, IN location, so I am excited to check it out! And next time we are in St. Petersburgh, we will definitely return!More

I arrived to this place while looking for other restaurant. It happened that it caught my attention and I decided to give it a try. Great option! The food was fantastic! I got a mushroom/Swiss burger and my wife got a lobster mac and cheese,...with big onion rings. All the food was excellent, the people very friendly and professional and my waitress (Kyrie) an awesome professional. Nice surprise I got. Highly recommended!More

Waited over an hour for food. Waitress disappeared for over 40 mins after she told us we’d get food shortly. Watched to-go orders get picked up. There was a wait to speak with the manager because they were in the back cooking since team was...understaffed. I understand that staffing can be an issue in Covid era, but nobody gave us an update on our food order or that it would be a while for the food to come out. Terrible experience and wouldn’t recommend to anyone. It’s a gamble on whether they have staff or not.More

The hamburger, which is served in a pretzel bun was very good. However, the shrimp boom boom appetizer was a big disappointment. They give you 9 tiny shrimp, like the kind that is about $6 per pound, for $10.50. They were more like 9 little...popcorn shrimp, on a plate. If I worked there, I'd be embarrassed to serve that, but it's not the server's fault, so I didn't hold it against him. Atmosphere was nice and service was okay. Would probably try again because the burger was so good.More

We could see immediately by the decor that this is a great bar if staying downtown. We went for lunch. Loved all that there was to enjoy - food, atmosphere, service, napkin holders, restrooms, views. We will visit other cafes in this chain. Great menu...options.More

To be honest I'm not sure. I thought I saw it available on the menu at an extra cost for the gluten free bun. I've checked the online menu and I didn't see it, however I would call any of the locations and ask. They are very... More
