it was a busy Friday lunch, and we sat in the bar area - but had full meal service. Food was excellent, service was really attentive, especially with the lunch crowd. The manager was pitching-in to make sure folks were happy. Most of my group ordered the fish tacos, and they were terrific as usual.

This place is just great all around. Usually busy and waiting time averages 15-30 minutes. Great bar area! Opening its third location in Landsdowne. Angry Mussels and Shrimp tacos are my favorite

Went here for dinner the other night on business with a friend. No wait so that was good. Ordered pretty quickly - got the Angry Mussels to start and I ordered the crabcakes, my friend ordered the fried lobster tail and ribs. The mussels were very good, with a little bit of kick. Came with 4 pieces of garlic toast... More

A group of us had an early dinner here and we all really liked our food. I had the fish and chips and a pomegranate margarita. The drink was just strong enough and a large size. I think it was $9.00 and that was a fair price. My meal was terrific and I would get it again. Someone else had... More

So people understand Ford's Fish Shack chain is a New England Style Fish Restaurant. Not a seafood restaurant. It's very good take on New England Style seafood with Lobster Rolls, Fish and Chips, Shrimp, Scallops. My favorites are the Angry Mussels, Mussels cooked with a Chorizo Sausage and wine, tomato, green peppers and onion broth. Also the Deviled Eggs with... More

A very good "beachy" seafood restaurant in the middle of Ashburn VA. The quality of the food is good and the ingredients appear to be sourced fresh. Nice beer selection also

This is one of our "go-to" favorites. We have tried almost everything on the menu. The mussels, the half rack and tail, and the fish and chips are wonderful....and the corn bread muffins - the best.

Service is great, food is fantastic. Not much tables space so get in there early! Their lobster rolls are legendary. If you're a couple, get one of each!

If you love steamed clams -- head for Ford's. They were super-fresh -- just perfect. The portion size was great for a meal and the price ($16.95) is tough to beat. I also had a wedge salad -- which was delicious. The service was fast and friendly. The manager saw me looking at a road map and came over and... More

This was a great place to eat. However, if you are looking for something romantic, or quiet, you may want to try somewhere else. The tables are very close to each other, and it can get loud in there.
