Ford's Fish Shack Restaurant Review

: Ford's Fish Shack echoes coastal Maine in ambience, its colors and a menu of New England-style seafood dishes. The place bustles, and one bite of anything explains the appeal: sweet, warm blueberry muffins; a sharable appetizer called Maine chips, fresh potato chips heaped with melted blue cheese and lobster bits, somewhat reminiscent of a nacho platter; and crispy flour tortilla tacos stuffed with spicy shrimp. If you drop by at brunch, you might find an omelet filled with blackened shrimp and accompanied by fried red-skinned potato slices. For dessert, do not skip the white chocolate blueberry pudding shaped as a Bundt cake and drizzled with caramel. The decent wine, beer and cocktail list offers a pairing to brighten any meal. Also located at 25031 Riding Plaza, Chantilly, 703-542-7520.
