“Must love fish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

If you love seafood, do yourself a favor and go here. Don't let the "shack by the side of the road" exterior turn you off, it's all part of the charm. Fish was excellent and the sides were amazing. Unfortunately, 2 of our 4 guests weren't seafood lovers so there wasnt much to satisfy them. The chicken sandwich was lackluster but the burgers that other tables were enjoying looked good. My only complaint would be that the salmon doesn't come in a lunch portion and even for a lunch portion, the serving sizes were humongous. This food was very good and the restaurant was clean and service prompt. Would recommend.

“Divine smoked fish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013 via mobile

We did take out. Had the best German potato salad I have ever had. Sure didn't expect that from a fish joint in Florida. But it was perfectly made with bits of smoky bacon. Then there was the fish. We ordered a pound of smoked salmon for $20 and it was worth every penny. Rich and silky it was the best smoked fish I have ever tasted. Wow -- two dishes, two "bests." I was swooning. Don't miss this place.

“Old school fish smoke house.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Fresh smoked fish they way it's meant to be. Great value for lunch and dinner. Huge portions of freshly smoked fish. Get there early as some fish sell out quick. Not a fancy place. But who needs fancy when you serve food like they do.

“A Last Vestige of Old Florida”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Three generations and counting so you know it's got to be good. You go there for the smoked fish. Delightful smoked Salmon, Mullet, Mackerel, and Mahi-mahi. The ambiance is simple and relaxed with outdoor picnic tables surrounding the bar and a small heated/cooled interior. Go there on a cool winter day and eat inside by the fireplace burning the same red oak used for smoking the fish. We've known about Ted Peters for 25 years and eat there whenever our travels put us in the area. Simple, honest, friendly, and delicious.

“Fantastic Smoked Fish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

The place looks like it has been there since the 50's with covered outside seating. The aroma of the smoked fish is wonderful and the portions are hug. My wife and myself split a smoked salmon dinner plate that we could hardly finish. The New England soup is great too. The only regret we have is that we could not bring back the smoked fish home since we had to leave before the opened the next day. Make sure you try fish spread too. Once you eat here you will understand why it has been around since 1955. Great service too.
