Family decided to get to know this Triple D - if you know what I mean - place. We had the smoked mullet, German potato salad and the smoked fish dip sandwich. Food was really good and service was good as well. We definitely got what we came for.

So we arrived about 7:15, never guessing they close at 7:30 (Our fault). After bringing our drinks, we were informed we needed to order as they were closing. My husband and I split Mahi Mahi ($22.99, plus $2.00 split plate fee). Our friend got Mahi Mahi as well. We couldn't eat all of ours, nor could our friend. Way too... More

Went in with my daughter who could care less about smoked fish and had hot dogs. I had a delicious smoked salmon with an ice cold beer. Execellent!

Great place to eat for all age groups.. service is good but busy.. German Potato Salad is awesome with ground beef burgers.. nice place for relaxing lunch.. or dinner but very casual... Peak times hard to get table.. but worth the wait..

We stopped here on a whim and were delighted with the meal. The smoked fish was very good as were the sides. Was interesting to hear the story of the place being on Diners, Driveins, and Dives. Try the fish spread it was delish!

My mouth starts to water as I drive into the parking lot. The quality of their fish spread and smoked fish Is consistant. The only negative is that the service is not always the friendliest.

You'll have to search diligently to find better smoked fish-get the mackerel if it's available-and the German potato salad is excellent. That having been said, check the price before ordering. $$$$

The place has a lot of old-school charm...the menu is limited...the fresh fish is about all I would order, it is usually tasty and it is on the inexpensive side, the people are nice...but...I don't think the fish-spread (which it is supposed to be famous for) is very good. Being a local, there's much better fish-spread all over the beach.... More

On our yearly visit to St Pete Beach we make it a must to eat at Ted Peter's. They are famous for their smoked fish and my wife enjoys their smoked fish spread. I generally get a smoked mullet luncheon, but this time I got a bowl of NE clam chowder and a hamburger. Believe it or not they serve,... More

For some reason I have loved the cheeseburgers here since I was a kid. The potato salad is also really good. I don't eat seafood but they are known for their smoked fish. However, through the years the service has really gone downhill. Also, pets are not welcome at the tables outside, which is rare for the area.
