Peal and ear shrimp was fantastic! We had that as our appetizer followed by the fresh grouper special. Awesome! Great service too!!

Stopped in to Chowder Ted's for the first time today, although I've passed it numerous times. If you're coming from Amelia Island you'll miss it! They had a special, Blackened Mahi with mango salsa and slaw, which I ordered. It came up quick, and was excellent! Whole lot of character to this place, right on the water.

Every time we go to Jacksonville to visit family we always go to Chowder Teds at least once. I always get a pot of chowder and the clam strips ( best clam strips I have ever eaten in my life!) and my hubby likes the fried shrimp. We've never had a bad meal here.

Wife and I enjoyed the excellent chowder.... We followed it up with the Cajun shrimp sandwich and blackened snapper salad. We will definitely be back to enjoy some more great seafood. 😃 Note: CASH ONLY!!

Great lunch spot on way in from JAX Airport. Specials way to go in small packed unique place. Excellent fish sandwiches, made even better when offered as 'ultimate' (with jalapeño slaw add on topping). This trip it was Not to be missed however is the very unique and uncommonly good 'chowder', get a half pot to go!

Keeping it short and sweet here - when I turned off the road to pull in to Chowder Ted's the first time my (very foodie, usually pretty laid-back) Italian fiancé got a little nervous. "We're really going to eat .....here?!" Heck yeah, I said. Shortly thereafter we were both happy happy and go back whenever we are in Jax. Great... More

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 there is barely room for me now sometimes. Maybe I should telling you to stay... 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.
