Good place for lunch

We had lunch here and it was very good. The chowder is great and everything else we had was good too. The place is not fancy and a bit outside of town but right on the way to the ocean so worth the drive.

Delicious. Casual Dive. Few Tables with ice cold beer. Chalkboard menus with specials of the day. Fried onion rings, Cajun shrimp and the best ever pound of peel and eat shrimp. Too much food but we managed to put it away. Great friendly service. Usually line out the door per waitress. 25min. drive from Amelia South end of island. Easy... More

Chowder Ted's had a busy day and we missed the chowder but what we had was delicious! I had the special, a Maui Maui open face sandwich. Others in our party had burgers and wings, it was all worth the drive! We will defiantly return. The folks there were very friendly and made us feel welcome. Great place.

Food was great, from the chowder in a pot to the special of the day. Small space, but it a beautiful spot. Great detour on a road trip. Good service.

I don't know where to start.. How about the place. It's a dive. It's a small quaint place with 12-16 tables and bar top seating. You can watch Ted back there cooking up a storm. They keep fresh local beers on tap, and the service is the absolute best in town. Yeah, they don't put the napkin in your lap... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants!! The seafood specials are excellent. The tuna is cooked perfectly, the chowder served in a pot is delicious and Chowder Ted's has the best french fries I have ever eaten :).

Great food with a great atmosphere. Kind of tucked away, but it was awesome. 10/10 would eat here again.

Found this place when researching places to eat in Jacksonville for a family weekend! Picked up my family at the airport and headed for Ted's. The place is nothing special but the food was delicious and Ted and company are fun folks. The grouper sandwich was one of the best I have had in a while and I live in... More

This is one of two places that I will visit when anywhere near jaxport. They only take cash. The seafood is fresh and cones in good portion sizes.

My son and I came for lunch. The place is a shack so if you are upscale or pretentious, it may not be for you. Every single thing we ordered was nothing short of delicious. We tried the chowder and it was like no chowder I have had, red broth with fish and seafood, potatoes and carrot and celery. YUM!... More
