A number of years ago, someone told us to try out Ted Peters because they were really good. But, we didn't get around to going. Then, we saw a Food Network show about Ted Peters and how they smoked their fish and we were intrigued, but we still didn't go. Finally, this past weekend, we went and were impressed. Ted Peters is an experience to try. Things are not fancy here and you can sit outside on what are basically picnic tables, although there is an air-conditioned dining room inside. We went for the picnic tables outside. By outside, I do mean a covered area, so don't worry about the sun beating down on your heads.
We ordered some drinks, and I enjoyed a mug of draft root beer. We decided to order the smoked mullet dinner that comes with german potato salad and coleslaw. Along with that, we ordered the jumbo cheeseburger and the smoked fish spread with crackers. Soon our food arrived and our server gave us instructions on how to take the bones out, then we dug in. The smoked mullet was a real treat, and I am glad we only ordered one fish dinner because with the fish spread and burger, it was all more than enough for sharing. The burger was also done very well. As for the fish spread, it was delicious. This was a fun and tasty experience. Now, we have to go back again sometime and try some of the other smoked fish they offer. Besides the smoked mullet, they also have smoked salmon, mahi-mahi, and mackerel.
Some final information to share, make sure you go with cash because this is a cash only business. If you want to visit Ted Peters, they are open six days a week from 11:30 am to 7:30 pm, and closed on Tuesdays.
