This restaurant is unlike anything I have ever seen before. It is small, it is very crowded and it is 5 star food at very affordable prices.. If you want great seafood and friendly service stop by Chowder Ted's. Come hungry and leave happy..

Food was good. Lots of locals so you know it's good. Friendly and attentive service. Really enjoyed it. Be sure to bring cash because it's cash only!

Stumbled on this little gem while driving around. I had the conch fritters and the mahi special. Up front this is not a luxurious, plush restaurant.. This is a clean, roadside, smallish building that serves outstanding sea food.

Stopped at this great little place. Best blackened mahi sandwich I've had in quite awhile. Don't forget to try the namesake chowder as well. Well worth a visit!

Chowder Teds is always busy! They only take cash...always a conversation with the owners. Fast service and good food . They are not always open. A nice out of the way local restaurant

A great place off the beaten path. A one of a kind secret for the locals. Great food, not high priced, service was great and the place was very unique.
