Great service, yummy appetizers and excellent selection of beers! Lots of gluten-free items on their menu! Spinach and crab dip is absolutely delicious! There is some entertainment of some weekends. Family friendly and happy hour M-TH from 3:30 till 7:00 PM.

Had lunch with my daughter on New Year’s Day. The wait staff was very polite, friendly, and patient. We did a lot more talking than ordering. When we did finally order, the food came quickly and was delicious. I will definitely be going back.

When Ford’s originally opened it was great! Quality, service and overall it has gone down hill. No more.

Perhaps I chose the wrong thing, but I found the fish left a greasy aftertaste and they put it on top of the thin cut sweet potato fries, so they were greasy as well. Very disappointing. A larger piece of fish instead of fish fingers...More

If you click on either the Ashburn or South Riding locations, then you will find all their menus under that. I just tried and it worked.
