We walked over to Ted's from the Hilton Garden Inn for breakfast and followed that with a walk to the Bird and Nature Center. Ted's had the best pancakes. You can get them with pecans as well and they do not skimp on the pecans. Small local place. Definitely recommend.

The food was great. Everyone in the group liked what the ordered. The service is a bit slow but it appeared that there is only one cook but several servers. It was tasty and we would return.

We ate breakfast here three times, and were not disappointed. We chose something different each day. Favorites were the pecan pancakes (huge!) and the "Our Specialty". Generous portions, attentive service, great prices.

We ate breakfast a few times and the food was good and priced reasonable. The only thing we didn't care for was the home fries instead of shredded hashbrowns.

Breakfast Taco's are my favorite. I get potato, egg,cheese, chorizo. I suggest to get 2. Wait staff is pleasant and always getting re-fills of coffee. Open only for breakfast and lunch. I do wish they would add some fish or shrimp dishes since we are on the Gulf.

My wife and I go to SPI at least one a year, we have been going for the 30 years, give or take 1 or 2 years. We always go to Ted's. They have good down to earth food and the service is great. It is nice to go on vacation and know that you can count on one restaurant... More

We eat breakfast at Ted's every Sunday while we are on the island, spring and fall especially. It seems like every time we go we say "It tastes especially good today". The staff is super friendly and very welcoming. The prices are very reasonable. They have a good variety of choices, something for everyone. We see many of the same... More
