Lovers of unadorned, good food will want to head to Ted Peters Famous Smoked Fish, in the very-same rustic building since 1951. Five generations later, the family is still pleasing crowds with a simple menu done well. Featured in Southern Living, The New York Times and Food Network’s popular “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” show, the restaurant serves up 2,000 pounds of fish on busy weeks. This cash-only restaurant is closed on Tuesdays.
Don’t-Miss Menu Highlights: Why, the smoked fish, of course. Start with the smoked fish spread and saltines, then order a smoked fish dinner (salmon, mahi-mahi, mackerel or mullet) accompanied by cole slaw and the family’s German potato salad recipe.
