We love Ford's! It's a great spot for dinner and also offer a great brunch. Highly recommend the smoked salmon app. If you're from NOVA, the operators are old Great American employees so some of the dishes and the standards of service are similar.

This was our first time at this restaurant, and we loved our bruschetta appetizer. I ordered a salmon salad for a main entree, and it was good, but I thought it was too sweet as it had a lot of dry cranberries and had too much mayonnaise dressing. My husband ordered fish and chips, and these were good. Our waiter... More

Since we've lived in Ashburn, we've eaten there four times. Food and service always good. My wife is more into exotic seafood than I -- she loved the raw oysters. I'm more of a trout and halibut guy -- the food and sides are great.

We somehow ended up with a gift card to Ford's. It is located so close to home but for reason we have never gone there. We will definitely come back. The food was great and the servers were a hoot.

Try the angry mussels or some oysters as an appetizer. The salmon salad is fantastic for lunch or dinner. Can't go wrong here.

Since I live in NC I had a craving for crab cakes and the restaurant did not disappoint. Crab cake sandwich with a large Cake of lump crab barely held together. Great fries and sweet potato fries. Will definitely return on my next visit to Northern VA.

We go to Ford's for brunch on Saturday or Sunday when we want something more than just the normal egg ideas. We have enjoyed all of their brunch dishes and it is difficult to pick a favorite. I am also a fan of the Angry mussels and I make them a meal so I don't have to share! We have... More

We go weekly, was just there 2 nights ago with out of towners who had the 6 piece tocos (Shrimp & Fish) and had to take some home. We try to make it on Monday's for the $1.00 oysters. The food is fresh, hot, and a nice presentation. The seafood baskets are very nice, especially the shrimp basket. They serve... More
