Ford’s Fish Shack

Whenever we travel to places known for fresh seafood, we always eat as much fish as we can. We love seafood, especially fresh seafood. We don’t get fresh seafood here in Denver. This time, we went to Ford’s Fish Shack.

I don’t know if this is a chain or if the same owners have a couple restaurants in different locations, but this is the second location of Ford’s Fish Shack we have enjoyed while in Virginia. Fresh is Best

We had a very full first day in Virginia. After landing, we went straight to The Winery At Bull Run Some Virginia Wines – Part 1 – The Winery At Bull Run, then went to the the battlefields of Bull Run and the Civil War Museum there The Battle Of Bull Run/Manassas. We had worked up quite an appetite, especially since we left Denver early in the morning. So we asked the locals where to go for some fresh seafood, and it landed us back at Ford’s, though a different location. It was just as good as we remember too.

We were both very happy with what we ordered. We started off with some delicious New England clam chowder.

Scallops were the dish of the day for both of us. Oh they were so good too. Larry ordered the scallop platter

and I ordered the scallops over penne pasta. Scallops are some of my absolute favorite seafood. They were cooked to perfection too. They just melted in our mouths.

Larry is much more of a dessert person than I am, so he ordered a slice of the pumpkin cheesecake for dessert. He savored every bite of it. I am not a cheesecake fan, but then I am not a fan of cheese in general. I did take a bite though. I mean, how could I resist? It was so beautifully presented after all.

After a very full day, and full tummies, it was time to call it a day and head into the hotel. We knew we had a full day of more adventures coming up, so we needed to catch a few zzzz’s to get us ready.

Stay tuned. Don’t touch that dial. There is so much more good stuff coming your way. 🙂 Stay safe and stay well Everyone. ‘Til next time.
