Ford's Fish Shack

Ford's Fish Shack New England-style restaurant serving fresh-off-the-hook seafood including lobstah, crabs, oysters, scallops & shrimp, alongside classic American favorites.
Ford’s Fish Shack is a company of three neighborhood restaurants with an outstanding seafood selection served by a friendly staff. 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. We would not have been able to make it without our great staff. There are several employees who have been with us since the first days and deserve a special shout out. Thank you: Manolo, Jorge, Vladimir and Saul. Felix, Jose, and Joaquin also deserve a big thanks for keeping our kitchens running smoothly. We are very thankful to each and every one of our guests who gave us a chance in the beginning and keep coming back to dine at our restaurants. Over the years we have met and become friends with our guests who have come to trust us as their favorite neighborhood restaurant. We promise to always strive to make your dining experience outstanding and we hope that you will continue to join us for years to come! Our ties to the community are strong, and what we are most proud of. We feel so grateful to be able to give back to so many incredible local organizations. We’re proud to annually support Autism Speaks, American Cancer Society, Relay For Life of Loudoun County, Life With Cancer, No Kid Hungry, Boulder Crest Retreat, Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center, and many more.
