Had a meeting at the bar and the bartenders were very nice and attentive. They had a good business type hour hour. The IPA beer selection is not bad.

As a business traveler, I frequently eat by myself. Even though I was a table of one, you would've thought that I was a king. The service was excellent and the food was great. I had the red snapper special and it was really impressive....More

Ordered the lobster roll and a bowl of chowdah. The chowder had very few clams and the clams it had were tiny. In Boston, chowder has large clams and many of them. The lobster tasted frozen, not steamed the same day. It did not stand...More

Overall, our experience was good. As with the other Ford's restaurants that we have visited, my chief concern was the high level of noise. It was almost impossible to carry on normal conversation. There are very few noise barriers in the construction coupled with close...More

We have been going to FFS for years and have always enjoyed their quality of food and service. The last 2 times we've been there the quality of the food has gone down dramatically. The service is average and the prices are the same. There...More

I guess everywhere is loud now but we went with friends at their recommendation. It was difficult to have a conversation but I have to say the food was excellent. And more than one could eat, really. The service was excellent. We'd go back, despite...More
