We have been to this treasure many time. It's right off 295 and hecksher on the right. It's not always open, but when it is, it's always packed! Worth the wait..they only take cash, nothing else. Good local seafood and serve local beer.

I had gotten the sense from all the reviews on TA that Chowder Ted's would provide great food, at a reasonable price, and in a unique setting. Bingo - just what the four of us look for during our annual NCAA tournament road trips. So, we headed over to Ted's on a Friday evening - a bit concerned about the... More

This is one of those places you would never find without something like Tripadvisor. I couldn't find it in two GPS units so had to use the address. No signage visible from the road, not much to go by on the building. There were two of us that stopped and there was one order of chowder and chicken wings. The... More

Well worth the I-95 detour for lunch or dinner! Quick and friendly service. The chowder is hearty and tasty, and the conch fritters are some of the best I've had. My wife's shrimp sandwich had an awesome sauce. Great prices and selection on beer, if you plan on staying a while. Yes... this place is a dive with nautical related... More

Fish sandwich, best I've ever had, probably because of Ted's secret sauce. Onion rings, best for the same reason. Wings, great. Burger, ridiculously good. Need I go on?

Excellent fresh seafood - you can't go wrong! Big portions, I had the blackened mahi sandwich - it was wonderful! Nothing fancy inside, small, rustic but fun! Nice people ! Don't pass this place up!
