Fords came highly recommended for crabs and they did not disappoint. We picked up our order of freshly steamed crabs that were seasoned with Fords own seasoning and what an experience!

Best Oyster Stew I've ever had! Have eaten there a number of times and has been great every time. Also delicious crab cakes! All of the waitresses are friendly & attentive. Has become our favorite restaurant!

Unassuming place-- looks pretty basic from the outside. Fantastic breakfast and super nice people. They also have the best crabs in town in season.

Ford's used to be a much bigger operation down the road. They have down sized. Went there recently for Western omelet. Was very good. Service was good and the place is very friendly. There is a sign for their buffet on the weekends... the list looked impressive.

This is a charming little restaurant which is a favorite with the locals. It doesn't pretend to be anything more than it is. The kitchen is fast, the menu is good and the food is great. Regards, OdleBear
