Won't easily forget that chowder

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... read 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!

Seafood chowder served in pots and is great, subs and hamburgers as good as it gets. Friendly people and always a good crowd of hungry people.

From the guessed hours, to the hot seafood chowder served in the bowls it was cooked in, to the super-casual service and dining experience, Ted's is a one of a kind experience for those people looking for some local flavor. No reservations at a restaurant that barely keeps regular hours (Ted is open when Ted shows up), the menu is... More

What everyone else said, plus cash only. :) Should be in headline. If you forget cash, they will let you go to ATM nearby. Shrimp was great--it's not fried in soybean oil, so, if you are soybean oil intolerant, this is the pace for you! Chowder was tasty; view from parking lot is lovely.

If you like linen napkins and an extensive wine list with your seafood, go somewhere else. But if you like fresh seafood, big taste at a small price...this is your kinda place. The famous "Manhattan" style chowder comes to your table in the same soup pan it was cooked in, with as many spoons as there are people who want... More
