Great Lunch!

You can't go wrong with the special. Today was Blackened Mahi with Asian Slaw. I sat at the counter had some1/2 pot of chowder while I watched my lunch being made. Service is always friendly and the food is great. What a great Lunch. A very simple menu and they serve beer. Cash only and no ATM.

We met up with a small group of friends and family for something to eat and enjoyable time together. The food was great. It's a casual and relaxed atmosphere...just what we were looking for.

But he has real cold beer to wash it down! The place is a small dive on Browns Creek. Real good food. But spicy. I had the chowder and the special (grouper sandwich) loved it! Two things to know. They only take cash and they close pretty early.

TED @ Chowder Ted's knows how to cook seafood! We are people who expect Florida Seafood Restaurants to cook fresh fish right without over cooking it. We are regulars of Ted's & couldn't be more happy every single time with their service & food. While we tend to brag a little on the seafood, everything on the menu is great.... More

Great food, daily specials, you can't beat this place for fish. Also a good beer selection, including local Jax crafts from Intuition and Bold City. Be advised - cash only.

We stumbled upon Chowder Ted's while reading a review for a different nearby restaurant. Based upon it being mentioned in a neighboring restaurant review, we ditched the other and came here! We are SO happy we did. It is a small establishment, no frills on the exterior, but so charming and hometown authentic inside. It was nearing closing time, and... More

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
