Not only can you have them in the restaurant but you can take them home and cook them yourself! Superb freshly made potato salad and very fine cut cole slaw make a great meal in a very casual, homey environment.

Go there often. Great place, great for crabs, excellent price and excellent service! We eat there at least once a week from May until October and a couple of times a month the rest of the year

Fords came highly recommended for crabs and they did not disappoint. We picked up our order of freshly steamed crabs that were seasoned with Fords own seasoning and what an experience!
