Fish fries are our specialty, but we're also known for having the best burgers, which are always fresh, and don't forget about our meat sauce dog, smothered with special sauce that's derived from a time-honored Greek family recipe. For four years in a row, Ted's Fish Fry was voted the Best Fish Fry in the Capital District by the readers of Capital Region Living Magazine.

An Excellent Fish Fry

On a recent trip my husband and I decided to try Ted's Fish Fry -- an Albany institution. We had checked out their website and thought it looked good -- and we were right! The fish fry, served a la carte or as part of a combo, was excellent. A large piece of fish on a roll was fried just... read more

The best fish fry by far! The clam chowder is great but very pricey for the place. The Latham store really needs a make over in decor but the food is great. The service is A+, those all the Doyles working there the past 20 years or so... love them! Sometimes we call it Doyles Fish Fry LOL

Went to teds after years of hearing great things from so many people. It was literally garbage. Fish was old and tastes terrible. Fries were undercooked, just heartbreaking maybe I hit a off day but I won't be back.

A local favorite. Food cooked to order, fast and cheap. All the locals know it, multiple locations, exactly the same at each.

I do not eat deep-fried things very often. But, every once in awhile I will get a craving for some fried haddock or cod. This place will suit that craving. The fish they use (I think it is cod) is in these beautiful, long white strips that look to be about 6-8 ounces or more. It goes way past the... More

Counter service can be a bit slow given that they fry the fish to order. The good part of the wait is that the fish comes out fresh and piping hot. It's hard to find great fried fish and this may not be great...but it's pretty darn close. Dog friendly outdoor tables are a plus.

We had a fish fry, french fries and diet soda. The food was fresh, plentiful and the price was very reasonable. We plan to return.

Ted's, at their various locations in the Capital District, has evolved into the best fish fry places around. They now sell mini hotdogs with meat sauce that are vey good, too. Service is quick, too. Just don't order the fried clams......they are terrible!

In Latham for business and a local told us to try Ted's for a good take out meal. They were exactly right. The lunch special was a great value for the price. The fish was perfect and the special "chili" was a great alternative to Tarter. Don't expect anything fancy here...but the staff was friendly and quick. There was a... More

Outstanding, perfectly fried, big old fish fry. I've tried Bob & Rons and all the local restaurant. This is by far the best. Tartar is good but the chili is awesome!
