I went to ted peters on Friday April 11, 2014 with my wife who is black, I am white. The first thing I noticed was one of their male employees, probably , the dishwasher gave us a look, that if looks could kill we would both be dead. After waiting several minutes a waitress came and brought us menus, as... More

Have eaten here several times in the past and every time has been good. This time was no exception. My Maui Maui fish lunch was enough for me and didn't really come with any trimmings although unlike the Salmon dinner which did have potato salad etc. Portions may have got a little smaller over the years although they are still...

If you want over priced flavorless fish then by all means eat here. The only good thing about this place was the service which was average. I've truly never walked away from a meal so disappointed. We will obviously never return

We had driven by this place several times and were intrigued. Reading the reviews on Trip Advisor made us want to give it a try. Luckily our waitress said one dinner was enough for two. So for a two dollar extra place setting charge we took her advice and still brought food home! We had the salmon which was terrific... More

I started eating here when Ted Peters was still alive and continue to return whenever I visit St. Pete. The ambiance is quaint and the smoked fish fantastic! The staff is always friendly. Check out the silver dollar on the bar. (Full disclosure-Ted was my great uncle and my 2 cousins are doing a terrific job at continuing the tradition,... More

It's a very unpretentious place (looks like a shack on the left side of Pasadena Avenue, on the way to Tyrone Sq Mall). We ate in the restaurant, and we also did take-out. Service is excellent - they serve beer too. The smoked fish is very good although a bit pricey - I guess quality does command a premium! Be... More

Driving along the coast of St. Pete's by the Gulf of Mexico is great in itself. What could possibly add to the beach and the sun? The freshest smoked fish one can buy. We decided on whole fish to go- mullet- still in the smoker. Still warm. Next door is the restaurant itself, casual, with picnic tables. Although tempted to... More

This road side dive is always on our hit list when we are on the west coast of Florida. Nothing has changed in the forty years since our first visit except the price. We ordered two servings of the Mahi Mahi that was lightly smoked, perfectly juicy and a great flavor along with a a side of German Potato salad.... More

I've visited Ted Peters dozens and dozens of times over the years. Located in South Pasadena on the way to St. Pete Beach, Ted Peters is one of the original businesses in this area. Known for their smoked fish (mullet and mackerel) and smoked fish spread sandwiches, the fish are smoked right on the premises in a little smokehouse. The... More
