My friend and I went for lunch. We had not been here for quite a while. She said that it was her parents favorite place to eat out. We sat outdoors under a roof at a table with benches. She had the smoked mullet dinner and I had the smoked salmon dinner. Large portions of fish plus cole slaw and... More

My favorite place for smoked fish...my favorite is the salmon...but the mullet, mackerel and mahi mahi is also delicious. The portion is more than enough and they serve it with German potato salad and it's good. You can also get a great big hamburger there too! They also have a separate smoke house where you can see them smoking the... More

I'd heard of Ted Peters fish place but thought no more about it until we happened to drive past it one lunchtime and saw (and smelt) the cabin from the road with some folks eating at the bar. So we stopped and had lunch, which comprised of THE most amazing fish I have ever had. Seriously. We've been back twice... More

They have good German potato salad. Didn't care for the smoked fish but my husband got the burger and he really enjoy it. It was bigger and worth the price.

Over the years I've gone to Ted Peters many times. I usually went for smoked mullet and I've usually left disappointed because they did not have any. When there I've looked for second choices and they did not have that either so I've usually left vowing to never go back there again.

Ted Peters is a restaurant that has not changed in seven decades or more. Ted and a relative (cousin, I have heard) started this remarkable place in the forties. It has never changed. They have served the same smoked mullet and mackerel for almost 80 years. The offerings - the menu - have never changed. The service is the same.... More

Since 1947 Ted Peters Famous Smoked Fish has kept it simple. Smoked mullet is a Florida thing that local crackers love. The smoked salmon is good too. Cash only. Simple sides include cole slaw and warm German potato salad. Featured on The Travel Channel. We love this place and have been here many times. If you are looking for fried... More

I have been going to this restaurant ever since I was a kid. It is the best smoked fish I have ever had!! Cash only. You can dine in or take some fish to go. They usually have several types of fish, but the mackerel is my favorite. The fish spread is great too!

I first came to Ted Peters when I was a kid in late fifties. We lived in Orlando and my Dad would travel down to Tampa and St. Pete on business several times per month. On some of those trips, he would bring the family for a mini vacation. Since both of my parents loved smoked mullet, we would stop... More

We've stopped in here every time we go to St. Pete to buy smoked mullet. We make a great smoked mullet dip and this is the best smoked mullet we've had. However, this time, we bought smoked salmon and smoked mahi mahi as well. The smoked salmon is SO good! The service was excellent. We were able to tell the... More
