“Smokin Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013

As an avid Colorado smoker I wasn't sure this was the place for me. We have old refrigerator we have converted to a smoker and smoke fish and elk monthly. But after a week of eating out we were looking for something unque. We found it. Not for the fine dinning crowd. Its picknic table style, semi enclosed. Very freindly staff and great fish. We ate family style to keep cost down. Its the way to go. Each dish is one pound of smoked fish. There were 5 of us and we ordered a Mahi and a Mullet, (They were out of Mackerel ). A couple extra sides and it was plenty of food. I think think the bill was $44 with 3 beers. The waitress gave us a free sample of fish spread it was very tasty. You don't need the extra plate for $2 and they closed at 7:30 pm when we were there.

“500 miles to get Ted Peters smoked fish spread”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013

Been eating here a very long time and it's not a trip to Florida without it. I'm a mackeral-mullet fan for the spread. Now they have other fish as well. I usually get the great 1/3 lb burger, German potato salad, iced mug of Root Beer and a quart of spread to go. Perfect beach restaurant. Short trip this time so decided too take quart back - stopped on way to airport - Warning TSA likes to eat your fish spread! Still pissed they confiscated it. Cost depends on what you order can be over $20 or under $10.

“One of a Kind”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

I love this place. I've been there many times now. I don't know where else you can get cuisine like this. They have four kinds of smoked fish...mullett, salmon, mahi mahi and mackeral. I have tried all of them and prefer the mullett. They butterfly the mullett and slather in secret sauce and smoke it on old racks in an old smoker right on the premises. The german potato salad is fantabulous too...indoor and outdoor seating...beer...what else do you need. They also have a smoked fish spread that I really liked. They've been at the same location since the 1950's. A great institution. Guy Fieri of Triple D did a show here as well.

“Great Smoked Fish”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

Large portions of Smoked Salmon, German potato salad and if you're not a fish lover, they serve a killer hamburger.

“A Yummy Experience!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

We have visited the area several times and always commented that we needed to try Ted Peters. Our curiousity got the best of us and the locals highly recommended so this visit we decided to tickle our taste buds with a new experience. Ted Peters offers inside or outside on the patio dining. They close early- so don't delay! The menu is very simple offering different types of, naturally, smoked fish! You can order a lunch (without sides) portion or a dinner portion. We shared our dinner portion because we ordered an appetizer of smoked fish spread. I highly recommend you try the smoked fish spread-- very good. Even our non-fish loving son-in-law liked it. Our wait staff was excellent and answered our questions-even offering us a taste of the smoked fish spread prior to committing to an order. For dinner we had the smoked salmon which came with german potato salad and coleslaw. All was delicious! Our daughter had the Mahi Mahi. It definitely tasted "smokier" than the salmon- likely because it was not as thick as the salmon. Although we decided we wouldn't want a steady diet of the smoked fish we do plan to return again and to encourage other St. Pete/Clearwater visitor friends to stop in. Worth the stop for sure!
