This restaurant is great for date night, brunch with friends, family dinner and special occasions like a birthday. It's impressive since not many places have such an environment. The atmosphere is fun with all of the themed decor and it's always busy so you feel a positive energy. Service is always good because there are mainly professional service industry employees...

This place is for sea food lovers. Its conveniently located in Ashburn in Ice rink plaza complex. Always crowded because of excellent taste. Varieties of seafood menu. Bit expensive but worth its money.

Comfort food - well presented. Previously had the fish & chips - I'm just not "in to" fried foods. Had the crab cakes on our second visit - "held together by sheer determination!" Yum!

Ford's is about to open their third location which is a testament to how well they are doing. For your appetizer course there is no place in the DMV where you can get better mussels. The Angry Mussels are cooked in a chorizo broth that makes them unbelievably delicious. The New England Cod, the different lobster roles and the daily... More

Typically good food. Mussels, salmon, crab cakes and lobster tails were all great. Not too crowded for lunch and they had special valentine's menu.

Rrecently went here for happy hour and had great food and drink! Outstanding value and the staff is equally wonderful. Had shrimp and the fish and chips; the price was great and the food better! A great environment for food and drink after a long day of work! Top notch place!

If you go there you have to get the Angry Mussels as a starter. The food is good and most of the time the service is as well. It gets crowded and you can do the call ahead.

Stopped by the Shack for pre New Years Eve prep. Great drinks on the happy hour menu. Loved the fried lobster tail and Angry Mussels

Ford's Fish Shack is a great place to dine with family and maybe something more intimate. The fish is always fresh and reasonably priced based on the market. Food is divine and service is great. The one knock on this place is the location. Parking is abysmal here. You have to be ultra aggressive in finding a parking spot here.... More
