This place is special. Right on the water with seafood so fresh it will make you want to order it all again just after you have finished. Great service atmosphere and the view is breathtaking. A must detour or more accurately a must destination on your next trip to Mystic. Check this one off the bucket list. The lobster rolls... More

Fords was excellent and a lot of fun. Simple and straightforward, lobster of course (it was also very reasonably priced) and a nice general sea food menu as well. All straightforward fare, nothing fancy but well done. Crowded and noisy - but part of the scene here. Recommended.

Consistently excellent! Abundant menu of the freshest selection of seafood and accoutrements. Of course the lobster roll is the outstanding. Ask for Loretta, she is the best!!

We went in for lunch on Saturday afternoon! We were greeted immediately at the door and sat right away! The waitress also came right away to offer a beverage. My husband ordered a white wine and the waitress quickly came back with that they were byob but I can offer you the mussels, since One of the ingredients is white... More

we went there today with high hopes, after reading reviews.. disappoints us at first bite. Lobster bisque..watery and lobsterless.. yuck..i being in the business gave the waitress the benefit of the doubt, by hoping that maybe they forgot to put lobster in it..i really wanted them to redeem themselves..she looked at me like a deer in headlights with no offer...

We visited on a sunny lunchtime, they were quite busy but only had 1 server available. She was very pleasant and trying very hard. Management had failed. The food though was excellent when it arrived, we included mussels in garlic/ white wine,lobster dishes and salads. I do recommend it , you may need to wait.

Well I was craving a nice lobster roll. Looking for Abbots I came across Ford's Lobster. Saw an article in Yankee Magazine and thought - perfect let's try it. Was able to sit outside. Very small patio area - maybe 4 tables. Gloomy day but still enjoyed what little view we had. Opted for a lobster roll (hot). Came with... More

Ford's was recommended to us while we were visiting Mystic CT. So glad we went. It was cold and rainy so we didn't have the option of dining outside. The inside part of the restaurant was a small square box- no atmosphere and one enthusiastic server. We went on a weekday night so it was not crowded. My husband enjoyed... More

Finally tried this quaint lobster house right on the CT shore. Really fabulous. Absolutely fresh lobster, friendly and helpful staff, and priced right for the meal. It's not the easiest place to find, and it's small, so at busy times expect a wait. And its BYOB, we didn't know that, but a package store is very close by. Lots of... More
