Ford's Fish Shack is one of my families favorite restaurants to go to on a night out. It is perfect for a dinner date with my husband and it is also a great place to take our kids too as well.
Don't let the know "Shack" fool you! Ford's Fish Shack is far from a shack. They manage to create a really comfortable, fun, fast pace environment. If you go for dinner, they are always pretty packed, so I would recommend calling in and making a reservation, especially if you do not want wait around for over an hour for a table!
Once you are seated though, everything seems to flow pretty fast. Their servers seem to be all over the place, and always right by your table when you need them.
We went to Ford's for dinner last night with the whole family. They have a really great children's menu. I appreciate that they have more than just two or three choices for kids. They offer a solid eight choices for kids meals ranging from mac and cheese to salmon and sirloin.
My youngest had chicken tenders. The meat was very soft and she scarfed them all down. My other two kids enjoyed the batter fried chips and the petite sirloin. Both of the meals looked delicious and unlike at home, I did not have to ask them to finish their food. They all cleared their plates all on their own.
I ate the fish tacos. They were so fresh and tasty. Plus they came with a side of salsa and guacamole. It also came with fries. My husband ordered the mussels and oysters. I have to admit, they were so good I ate some of his as well.
The kids love the blueberry lemonade! It is really fresh and flavorful. I really enjoy ordering the blueberry lemonade sometimes too, although last night I indulged in a margarita. They manage to make all their drinks taste really fresh!
I use Modern Mechanical for both my home and for my two rental houses.
I recently called them to come out and repair the heat pump at one of my rentals. I was impressed with their professionalism. They were able to come out the same day I called with a team. They worked together very well. Since my rental is one of my main sources of income, I really appreciated how careful they were not to make a mess. They laid down tarps and were careful not to make a mess. When they left, they took everything with them. Neither myself or my renters had any mess to worry about cleaning up after they fixed the heat pump. They provide me with a 100% satisfaction guarantee which provided me with a strong feeling of confidence in their work. By providing me with a 100% satisfaction guarantee, I could tell that Modern Mechanical stands behind their work.
I have also used them for more minor repairs at my rentals and my house. Every time they come out, they are so professional. They have really good prices. Even though I like Modern Mechanical, I still call around and get quotes from different mechanics to make sure that I am getting a good deal and I am not being overcharged. Pretty much every time, Modern Mechanical offers me one of the best quotes. They are very honest about their prices. I have never ended up paying more than they quote me for.
They also are really good about breaking down their services. They always answer all of my questions, and provide me with quality information. In addition to their 100% satisfaction guarantee, they also offer a one year homeowners parts warranty. This covers any of the parts that they installed. If any of the parts fail, they will come and replace it within a year. You do not have to pay for the parts, just the service to fix it.
Rain Salon in Ashburn Virginia is an amazing salon that I just recently discovered. I have been going here for the past few months and every time I leave the salon I seem to be beaming with a huge smile across my face. In my experiences it can often be difficult to find a stylist who actually listens to your needs and wants, but at last my troubles are over because I found the perfect stylist here. The first time I stepped foot into Rain salon I did not have an appointment, but was surprised that they squeezed me in. Melanie was my stylist and ever since then I have continued to go back to her every time I go to the salon. Rain is an amazing salon because they are open everyday except Sundays and you don't necessarily need an appointment to get your hair done. Of course if you are wanting something a little more time consuming like highlights or color treatment it is always best to make an appointment rather than just walk in. I have had numerous haircuts and different types of styles performed on my hair. I have also had my hair colored and highlighted with absolutely great results. My hair is difficult to work with being that it is so long and thick, and to top it off it is also extremely curly and frizzy. Melanie knew just how to take care of my hair and she always makes me feel beautiful whether she styles my curls or straightens my hair.
The prices at Rain aren't too bad, they are about average to some of the other nice salons in the area, but the stylists are what really makes this place great and sets then apart from the rest. Everyone is so friendly and attentive. Every person who walks through the door is greeted with a warm welcome and a kind smile. In addition to the great hair services they provide, manicures and pedicures are also available. Rain also provides waxing services which I usually take advantage of and get my eyebrows waxed, the tech always provides an even and perfect shape. I have never had any issues with this salon or with any of the stylists. I have finally found a wonderful salon to take care all of my needs, I will continue to go to then for all my beauty intrests.
When making an appointment at a salon, remember that most salons busiest days of the week are Thursday and Friday. Try to make an appointment at the beginning of the week or in the morning so you are not waiting for someone to style your hair.
