Always very tasty smoked fish in the smoke house. Take cash only. ATM is handy. Don't expect friendly service from grumpy smoker dudes. Easy to overlook "service" for the quality and taste of their smoked salmon. Restaurant is okay - I prefer the smoked fish To Go....

The smoked fish is excellent but be prepared to spend for it. We spent a hundred for a dinner for 4. The food is excellent and definitely worth price, just so you know before you go that the prices are based on market prices of the fresh fish.

A staple for my 60-plus years. Seems I can't go a month without stopping by for lunch, especially if the weather is ideal - for sitting outside. I can only attest to the smoked fish and spread, German potato salad and hamburgers, but there is nowhere in the community to compare. And, you can go inside the smokehouse in the... More

If smoked fish is your thing, Ted Peters is your restaurant. We've been going for decades and have yet to have anything but a delicious, fresh, satisfying meal! Be sure to start with the smoked fish spread, like we do, and then you can then share a smoked salmon dinner and walk away from the table ever so satisfied. They... More

Ted Peters is a quaint little restaurant known for it's smoked fish, burgers and German potato and frosty mugs. They aren't fancy and they only accept cash ( They have a debit machine outside now!), but that's how it has always been. In a world where everything is changing and trying to please the masses, it's really nice to see... More

This icon restaurant is not what you expect and you could easily just drive by it. The building is nothing to write home about which is why we have previously not stopped. Visiting family this trip, they took us there. Sitting at a picnic table , one beer on the menu, we first had our doubts. Only four smoked fish... More

This place is a lot of hype about nothing. Yes, the smoked fish spread is good but it's not any better than anywhere else. Cash only, which is a lot of money if your party is over 2 people. Draft beer selection is poor, only coors light, Corona light and a few other light beers. Anytime I've ever been to... More

Can I say that I have been eating there for 65 years? That me feel very lucky. We came down on a family vacation then, and I come back to enjoy every time I return.
