I can see why we had to wait for almost 2 hours for a table. Ask if any space is availed at the dock area. The food is very good. I had the lobster bomb and it was worth every penny. My husband and the...More

The lobster rolls were lovely - very fresh and the lobster meat was from the claws and tail. It was delicious - you can have them with cold with mayo or hot with butter. We opted for the hot lobster rolls and a cup of...More

Wonderful lobster and the clam chowder is a must. I had the lobster BLT. Great. A ton of lobster with very flavorful crispy bacon. Was not sure of the combination, but had to order as it is a popular menu item. Loved it. My wife...More

We decided to meet friends at Ford's Lobster last Wednesday night. BYOB, it's a local seafood restaurant that expands to an outdoor venue during the summer. A lovely summer evening, we were seated quickly, our server immediately opened the wines we brought, and explained the...More

I have been to Ford's a few days ago and both the food and the service were mediocre. I had the New England Clam Chowder which had an average taste, so you are better off getting it from any ordinary eating place in the area,...More

After seeing all the hype about the 'Lobster Bomb,' we stopped for ourselves. We were not impressed. Stale bread bowl with a rolls worth of lobster, and a few ounces of bisque for $38. It was a waste of money. The lobster roll on the...More

when we arrived, there was no parking, people everywhere waiting for an hour and a half to order, plus the time to prepare the order. We turned around in the tiny street and headed off for somewhere else.

I don't think so, and they fill up quickly, not many tables. We went on a weekday and arrived at 11:30 am and were seated right away. But within just a few minutes a line was forming. So go early bring your drinks and order... More

Does Ford's take credit cards? Is it still BYOB?

Yes they take credit cards and it is still BYOB . There is a nice package store up the hill. I also noticed that the pack store may do deliveries to Fords
Why aren't the umbrella's out this summer! We went in June and they were there. Went in July and had lunch in the hot sun. Went tonight-no umbrellas. We left and went elsewhere. The food & view are great but for those prices I want to be comfortable.
