This place is great and the fish chowder the mainstay. Only problem here if there is one is they open when they open and close when they close. Better call if you are far away. I do not know why I brag about them because...More

I have eaten at seafood restaurants all over the US, and this was hand-down one of the best, especially for the price. I have the special - pan-seared tuna with greens. Can't wait to go back.

We have only been here twice but every time they are always busy and so nice. The food is amazing. It's been almost two years since our last visit. We won't be waiting that long next time.

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!
