Chowder Teds is a neat little out of the way seafood place which is open for lunch or an early dinner. I had the Conch Fritters and Crabcake today for lunch and they were both excellent. The Port of Jacksonville is close by so you...More

Again, rating is relative to peer group. This is a local seafood dive. Rebuilt after last year's hurricane. Still the same friendly staff, great food, and low prices. The seafood chowder is their signature...spicey with lots of fish, shrimp, shellfish and potatoes. The grilled tuna...More

We knew ahead of time that this was an unusual place and that was correct. Coming from New England, a seafood joint has clam chowder and clam cakes. So, if you are expecting that, no, that is not what you get. My husband had Ling...More

Just don't understand why this is so popular. Staff was nice but it smelled like sewage. Obviously has large local lunch following just not for me.

This is a small place off the road on my way to and from work to Blount Island (previously). A co-worker recommended it. Excellent recommendation. The tuna steak is dynamite! Make sure and give yourself time as the small place is packed quick!
