Ford's used to be a much bigger operation down the road. They have down sized. Went there recently for Western omelet. Was very good. Service was good and the place is very friendly. There is a sign for their buffet on the weekends... the list looked impressive.

This is a charming little restaurant which is a favorite with the locals. It doesn't pretend to be anything more than it is. The kitchen is fast, the menu is good and the food is great. Regards, OdleBear

Can't beat it! Everything was fresh and delicious.... More

The grub wasn't that good, the place needs a lot of work and the food took forever to get to our table. The waitress was friendly and chatty. I don't advise stopping there. Too many cleaner places in the area.

Loved the creamy crab soup & the yummy crab cake sandwich. This place is hopping. Food is fresh. Servers were upbeat & gracious. We took ours to go to the wildlife preserve.

The food here is always good and the family has gone through a lot of heartache, and still provides comfort and comfort food to the community. I have heard people from out of state farther than me in DE that come here regularly. You can bring your own beer too! There are often terrific specials too!!!!
