The service has improved and the arrangement of the salad was very attractive. Veggies average. Wine selection is ok, but the pour was skimpy. I'll try again in a few months to see if there is still improvement.

Excellent service, great ambiance and generally delicious food.Ted's steaks are just too expensive for what you get. 13oz Rib Eye for $28 and a 1/3 of it was the "clumpy" non-edible fat. It was by far one of the worst rib eyes I ever had. The Filet looked awesome, but again, just too expensive. I eat the best steaks around... More

Stopped by Ted's for dinner after reading good reviews. Had the Chicken Fried Steak. Was great and a large portion for $17. Waitress was friendly and had more bread on my table and water in my glass before I knew I needed it. Ted checked on me a couple time. Friendly and delicious. I'll be back.

Wow. This is a great steakhouse. All steaks are certified Angus beef. Everything was fabulous and, as one would expect, included generous portions. Wait staff was friendly and attentive. I highly recommend Ted Nelson's for dinner if you are in Montrose (or driving over if you are in Delta).

Acted on a recommendation, and glad we did. The place was difficult to find in the dark, and may cater more to locals. The decor is nothing special, but the food was excellent and surpassed our expectations. The service was magnificent and Ted himself came by several time to insure all was to our satisfaction. We'd have no trouble returning... More

We came here with our family last February and as we were in Montrose again in November, my wife and I decided to try it again. It was early Friday evening and when we went in it was very busy. We were told there was a waiting time of approx. 45 minutes, so as we enjoyed our last meal here... More

Ted Nelson's was recommended to us by the proprietor of the hotel that we stayed in. We were greeted by a very cheerful server. The ribs my husband ordered were the best he had ever had outside of Chicago. I ordered the Tuscan stuffed chicken and was also pleasantly surprised at the wonderful flavor. Beer and wine complemented the meal... More

We arrived in Montrose after a long (to me) and very winding drive from Mesa Verde. I was tired and hungry. So on the suggestion of the front desk at our hotel (and a quick check on Yelp), we walked over to Ted's. It was a weeknight and the place was about 85% full so that was a good sign.... More

We had an excellent good value meal here while staying nearby which enabled us to walk from our hotel to this establishment. We were warmly greeted by Ted, provided with an excellent, tasty, good value meal served by attentive, friendly staff, and on leaving we were thanked by Ted for our custom. The menu is quite extensive and varied for... More
