The food was alright, the service was average. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a long wait for their food. The outdoor seating offers a nice view of pedestrians and tours, though.

Everything was just "okay"; nothing memorable or even "good". Service was decent. Prices are reasonable, but nothing to return for.

This just in - the Reedy River Duck Race Happens every year. Sounds like a straightforward statement. Well, Ford's doesn't get it, or missed the memo. My party and I arrived at Ford's about 1PM Saturday, to be informed that there would be a 15...More

I've eaten in the French Quarter over 100 times and at Fords about 6 times, and Ford's captures the flavor of the Quarter. I had the New Orleans shrimp and seafood gumbo. Both were excellent and reasonably priced.
