Everyone MUST visit Ted Peters at least once if you want to get a feel for the "heart" of this beach community! A decades-old family business, the restaurant is open-air (there is a small enclosed dining room), very casual, friendly and absolutely delicious! Start with the smoked fish spread on crackers, graduate to an on-site smoked fish fillet or the... More

This is the place to go if you want smoked fish or fish spread and saltines. I've had a few friends rave about this place. Though from my experience I've learned smoked fish is not high on my food favorites, it was done very well. My group had the fish spread, smoked mahi, mackerel and mullet (another first for me)....

Nice and easy atmosphere, no dress up required, a great place after a day at the beach,... More

The smoked fish at Ted Peters is excellent, without a doubt. We had the Mahi Mahi and it was delicious. The fish spread is sooo good! Make sure to try the freshly made german potato salad. The outdoor eating was fun, especially when an afternoon thunderstorm blew through. When you are in St. Pete, dine at Ted Peters Smoked Fish.... More

My family and I from out of town went for lunch based on reviews we read on Trip Advisor...what a disappointment! We ordered the fish spread (sweet pickle relish??? Really?) and smoked mahi lunch for $ 12.95 - came with a tomato slice and a pickle. The fish was unlike any smoked fish I've ever had...it was soft, had a... More
