My husband and I enjoy Fords Fish Shack! Great food, fun atmosphere and usually quite busy. Try their Canadian PEI Oysters, they are the best!😉

A hidden gem! Excellent steamer clams. Fresh Salmon and Salmon Bruchetta are not to be missed! Lobster Cobb salad is also a personal favorite.

We no longer live in the Northern Virginia area but we were spending the night in Ashburn since we had an early AM flight out of Dulles the next day. Easy to get to from our hotel, we had a late lunch/early dinner which was smart since it was St. Patrick's Day and a Friday to boot. Based on the... More

Not a big fan of strip mall restaurants but that's basically what you will get mostly in this area of VA. I went here for lunch with my wife and I must say the food is well priced and the ambiance is above average. Service was great when we went and above all, I like the extensive selection of drinks....

I had heard a lot of good things about Ford's and really enjoyed my dinner there. The crab cake dinner could not have been better and there beer selection was great.

Wife and daughter had the lobster and I had my favorite, blackened soft shell crab, which is hard to come by. The only thing missing was the she-crab soup with its side of sherry, which... More

There were 5 of us who visited here on a business lunch. We arrived when the restaurant was empty. The service and atmosphere were great but the food was bland. The calamari was good but shrimp tacos tasted of lettuce and tomato rather than shrimp. The tomatoes also appeared either old or thawed. I was not impressed and would recommend... More
