Not frills, great food

I'll be honest. I am not a fan of smoked food, but this is where my mother-in-law wanted to go, so we obliged. I was honest and told the waitress I was unsure and she recommended a salmon of some sort. It was lightly smoky, not over powering, and a good cut. I'm used to a little bit fancier, the... read more

This is my second review of this restaurant. We have gone here the last three years when on vacation. Absolutely the best smoked fish dinners you will ever have! The smoked fish spread is wonderful as well. Bring cash. They do not take credit cards. The service has always been top-notch. I really cannot say anything more. Just go and... More

We zipped past this place then decided we Must try it out! So glad we did...excellent smoked fish dip sandwich and dip! Best German potato salad i have tasted and quick friendly service. They serve iced mugs of Miller that suits the mood of this historic roadside find perfectly. Bring cash, but there is an ATM too

Yum! Yum! Very few entrees, done very well indeed, served in a hole in the wall atmosphere. Smoked mullet, mackerel, and salmon (why would you come to Florida to eat a northern fish??) with German potato salad, all to die for. Don't come here for the atmosphere; this place concentrates on providing great food at a great price. Don't miss... More

Ted Peters is known for its smoked fish and fish spread. I can remember fondly my grandparents taking me there when I came down to visit grandpa getting a nice cold draft beer and enjoying his food. Myself never being a fan I've always enjoyed their hamburgers they're huge and good value it's an outside restaurant but also has a... More

We always stop here to get smoked mullet. They smoke it with red oak and, they say, nothing else. How is it SO good? We make a spread out of most of what we buy and I have to say, other folks' smoked mullet do not in any way compare. This is the best!

We love the smoked fish here - it is our first stop from the airport en route to St. Pete Beach. The potato salad is also good. There is just something nice about having beer or root beer in a frosty mug. Sure, they only take cash, but having the best smoked fish is worth the ATM trip.

This is a DIVE of a restaurant. But it is excellent. I've driven for 6 hours straight just to eat dinner here with friends then driven back to north Georgia. It's that good. And I remember eating here with my Grandparents when I was young. It hasn't changed.

Was looking for a good place to on in St Pete Beach and found this place as I was driving by. Place itself is not that great,but the food was really good, had the smoked salmon, portion was over size, so we paid the extra $2.50 for the extra plate fee. It was definitely enough for two people, unless you... More
