Ted Peters has the tastiest smoked fish in the area. They specialize in mackerel and mullet. The fish spread is divine and the best anywhere in the Tampa Bay Area. We buy it by the quart all the time. AND if you want a truly gigantic and mouthwatering hamburger, try Ted Peters. Truly a tasty meal with their german potato... More

Best place for fresh smoked fish and fish spread. Hamburgers are good. Very casual setting with picnic tables outside and in. Don't be offended by gruff service. It's just their way.

They also have good burgers. But if it's smoked fish that you like this is the place to go! The location is great as it is on the way to the beaches. Pick up some crackers and fish spread and go have a picnic!

We haven't been for a few years, but it didn't disappoint! Smoked fish was great and the staff were lovely too. Even my kids liked the fish, so that's saying something!

I so wanted to enjoy this place. I've driven by it for the past couple years and always wanted to stop. Had the opportunity for an afternoon lunch and was disappointed. Being fans of both, I really was excited to try the fish spread and German potato salad. The smoked fish spread primarily tasted of mullet and tasted subpar to... More

Had Mahi Mahi & salmon that were awesome! The surprise for me was the burger, also great with thick cut tomato. The German potato salad was 2 thumbs up from all of us(10 & 14 year olds included) AND frozen mug beer & root beer. I must eat at in St Petersburg.

Bring cash! I've never had smoked fish before. The salmon was the best. The Mahi Mahi was OK but a bit dry. The cheese burger was one of the best I've had. One small suggestion. You should consider German slaw. Seriously :)

I love their smoked salmon with German potato salad. My husband goes for the mullet. We always leave pleased.

I get it... they're kitschy and have the longstanding history to get away with not accepting any form of payment but cash and being closed for dinner and all day on Tuesdays. Do you want a slice of tomato or onion with your meal? Be prepared to pay for each slice. Don't bother showing up to order any food after... More

The smoked fish is the best ever. However, you absolutely must try their cheeseburgers and German potato salad!! Excellent service, fantastic food, and cold beer. This restaurant should not disappoint!
