Ford's Wicked Catering started with platters for small gatherings and grew to include Dulles Golf Center & Sports Park.
We've been partnering with Dulles Golf for years to create great outdoor celebrations for any size event from 40-800 people.
We take care of the food and Dulles Golf has the activities covered to create an event that your employees, friends, or family will be talking about for years.
We'll handle all the details from an outstanding menu (and no, it does not have to only include seafood- ask us about our BBQ), to a tailored alcohol package that includes margaritas or local brews. We will even take care of dessert with ice cream, sno cones, cotton candy, or our famous blueberry pie.
Andy will handle activities from a full driving range, miniature golf, batting cages, panning for gold and anything else you may want to make your event special.

For more information about how you can have your next event with Ford's Wicked Catering and Dulles Golf, please email: [email protected]

Let's play a game.

Which of these is a Fried Ipswich Clam and which is a Fried Oyster?

Which is a Clam Roll and which is an oyster roll?

People confuse Fried Ipswich Clams with Oysters all the time, and it is easy to see why.
We can thank Howard Johnson for introducing a lot of us to Fried Clams 50 years ago. The issue is, at that time they used Quahog Clam that is cut into strips and to this day most still believe that is what a fried clam is.
New Englanders know that is incorrect.
We've only served a soft shell clam that is hand shucked and served with the belly intact since we opened 11 years ago. After frying, they do look similar to an oyster, but once you taste them, you certainly know the difference. Clams are known for having a strong and briny taste while oysters have a smooth and buttery taste.

Visit us to try them for yourself!

Our Story

Tony and Ana opened the first Ford’s Fish Shack on September 27, 2010 in Ashburn, VA. The idea was to create a comfortable and friendly fish shack like the many that are scattered along the New England Coast.

Our vision was a neighborhood restaurant with an outstanding seafood selection served by a friendly staff. We knew we had to serve the freshest fish, lobstah, and Ipswich clams. And that’s when the journey began for us, and the 24 employees who had the courage to join us.

Fast forward to today with a location in South Riding, events by Ford’s Wicked Catering and our newest location in Lansdowne, we still have the same goal. We are on the phone every day with the fisherman tracking down the freshest seafood for our guests. Whether its clams from Massachusetts, Halibut from Alaska, Grouper from Florida, or shrimp from North Carolina, we only accept the freshest of the fresh. This is sometimes a difficult task as weather and seasonal fishing closures can make it virtually impossible to get some of our specialties. We promise to always use sustainable practices to bring you the freshest seafood.

We’re honored to have been recognized by The Washington Post, Zagat and Northern Virginia Magazine as one of the best restaurants in the DC-metro area. Most recently, we were named Best Seafood in Northern Virginia Magazine’s Best of NoVA 2017 feature (for the fifth year in a row!) We have been a returning competitor at Tasting Table’s Lobster Roll Rumble in NYC, featuring 25 of the nation’s Best Lobster Rolls.
