Review of Ted's Fish Fry

Restaurant details
Reviewed 28 June 2018

After a Karvel fish fry on Central Avenue in Colonie closed several years ago, Ted's has become my family's mainstay for seafood take-out. A generous portion of fish (probably haddock) flops over the bun and fills you up. . Nicely fried, without any dripping grease. You place your order at a counter and then watch the older boss coach, cajole and joke with his young crew of cooks. On a Friday, you might have 10 or 15 customers in line, but generally it is less busy in mid-afternoon. Another Ted's on Western Avenue has closed to make room for a new hotel, so the Wolf Road location is getting extra traffic.

Ted’s has been a fixture in the Capital Region for over 60 years. As their motto states they are not fast food but good food fast! Their fish is shipped in daily and the fish fries are the best!

This was next door to my motel. I was laid over in Albany due to flight cancellations. Great surprise. Good fish and chips. The atmosphere is no atmosphere. Sit at a booth. Lots of families and groups eating the evening meal. Simple, good food.

Have been going by their places for years. Stopped in yesterday and had the BEST fish sandwich I have ever had. We summer in Maine so that says ALOT! Service was prompt, staff was attentive, even a local TV crew filming there. Told husband last night it is our next lunch out even if it's 50 miles from our home. Next time it's the scallops and onion rings! Can't wait to go back!

Fried fish. Fried potatoes. Fried onion rings. Fast, efficient, predictable. When the craving hits, this is the place.
