Ford's receives good ratings on Trip Advisor so we were lured to the restaurant. They were very busy on a Friday and do not accept reservations, but you can call to be placed on a 30 minute wait list. We still arrived at the designated time and still had to wait an additional 25 minutes. The restaurant is comfortable and has a nautical theme. Service was excellent. A full bar with multiple televisions is available. The rocket shrimp appetizer was very good, but I like the bang-bang shrimp at Bone Fish Grill better. The lobster bisque was excellent--probably the best I've had. It is the only soup offered on the weekend. Clam chowder is offered during the week. The fish and chips had an excellent cod with light batter and flaky fish. It was accompanied by shoestring fries and coleslaw. I didn't particularly enjoy the coleslaw which had a cinnamon taste and not much dressing. The clams and oyster basket was enjoyed by my wife. The seafood was excellent and the ambiance good, so I can recommend this choice.

Friday noon lunch was great. Service and food great... crab cake sandwich, shrimp tacos, and fried shrimp basket all were very good. Wish I lived closer to enjoy this restaurant more!

Based on a previous visit and reviews I and several business colleagues went to Ford’s. They wanted something hot and fresh. We all tried the fish and chips. The fish was fresh breaded and crispy on the outside while flacks on the inside. The fish was great. Cooked perfectly. While the chips were crisp and tasty along with thee slaw and the tartar sauce. This was good enough that several of my colleagues have recommended it to others and we are planning to make a return trip. In addition to the fish and chips. They also had a wide array of other fresh seafood. But when we were there the fish and chips were a hit. I would recommend and will plan to go back!!!

Atmosphere is great! We ended up having the special of the day which was cod and a dozen oysters to share. It was presented nice and tasted great. It was a great was to celebrate my brothers birthday before he moved to Colorado where he will have limited seafood choices.

Very atmospheric and very New England style food from the cod to the lobster. Many items are market price. The lobster roll was $22 the afternoon we were there.
The seafood baskets are less expensive.
You get about 8 ounces of oysters $15.50 or clams $18 which come with a generous number of small fries which come with an ample amount of grease.
