I visited twice recently and thoroughly enjoyed everything about Chowder Teds. Food, service and the feel of an Old Florida establishment makes it one of my favorite places in the area.

This a seafood restaurant frequented by mostly locals. I had the conch fritters followed by the pot of chowder with a salad. All was delicious & fresh. Menu covers mostly seafood & burgers & several daily seafood specials. The shrimp comes off the boats across the road so also fresh when available. They close at 7 PM summer & winter,... More

Fresh fish of the day blackened on a fresh roll with fresh lettuce and just a bit of awesome sauce. Stopped in here for a beer on the way south from Amelia island. Awesome!

I have lived in Jax for 16 years and have always heard about this place. Really wish I hadn't waited so long. My husband had the chowder and really enjoyed it. It's served in a little 1 quart pot with toast for dipping. We all had grilled tuna sandwiches. That day's special. Oh my yummy. Grilled rare. So big we... More

My rating is based on peer group. This is a surprisingly good "local dive" seafood restaurant on the water. No atmosphere, but great service, friendly people and low prices. No reservations, so go early or wait. Good selection of craft beers. The seafood chowder is spicy, full of seafood, and a reason to return. Fried oysters were very good. The... More

Everything I had was good. It is a very small place. The service was very good also. They have some killer fried shrimp. If I remember correctly it is cash only. I could be wrong.

Don't let the appearance chase you off. I sat at the counter, ordered my chowder which was served in a pot that you cook with, kinda cool. I ordered the special which was blackened tuna salad, wow, delicious! Nearly the best tuna I've had. The place is nothing to look at but its a fun experience, and the food is... More

Good service, friendly cook, interesting choices. The food was good, glad we ate there once, don't think we'd return. Little things, only a couple of crackers for the smoked fish dip, very little sauce with my blackened fish sandwich. The flavors were good though.

Every time we're in the area we eat there. We even make day trips to Jacksonville from St. Augustine just so we can eats at Ted's. My wife and daughter like the seafood and I really like the Swamp Burger. Everything is high quality and delicious.

Thank Mike R
