I came twice in the last month and today (7/15/17) was the second time. The service is friendly and attentive, prices are not terribly high, and the food is consistently delicious. Highly recommended.

Fords is a comfy restaurant with great seafood. I suggest, call ahead on weekends as they are popular. We love the Angry Mussels and the boiled shrimp. Good selection of beers and friendly service. Never been disappointed in lunch or dinner!

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.
