“Good food but atmosphere is not pleasant!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

The service here was nothing spectacular. The staff was friendly, but they were not very efficient. We had to ask several times for things we needed, such as salad dressing, and eventually just went and got it ourselves. The food was good. The onion rings and beef burger were both excellent. The restaurant serves a lot of buffalo, but there are also beef entrees as well. The tables here are very close together, so if your party does not fit in a booth (for 4 generally) then you will be jammed right up against other tables. This does not make for a pleasant dining experience when the table next to you has out of control children and you are trying to enjoy your own family! Even though the booths might provide a little more space, the overall setup in the dining area leaves a lot to be desired. There were booths in the bar area that looked to provide a little more space and room for better conversation with your party, and there was seating at the bar and along the kitchen area as well. However, the restaurant is very noisy no matter where you sit. Unfortunately, the good food is not enough to overcome the too close for comfort atmosphere and slow service!

“Good food...service not so”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

We like Ted's. We like Ted Turner and the basic concept of this chain. We have probably eaten there 10 times in the past three years. There seems to be a consistent patern with the wait staff. They emphasise friendliness to the point of being over friendly. They need to work on their serving skills. Today for instance we asked for a condiment twice and I finally had to leave the table and get it myself. When our drinks needed refreshing we had to wave the waiter down.

I am sorry to have to give this negative review but the management needs to tighten up. Out of the 10 times we have eaten there we have had poor serice at least four times.

“A great experience in a nice atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

The atmosphere in this restaurant is really nicer! The bartenders are friendly and for under. $2 your drink becomes a generous double. Friday through Sunday is prime rib night. I went on a Sunday and they apologized that being Sunday only medium was available. Good for me, that's the way I like it! I added an upgraded side salad ($1) and it was well worth it. I was too full for dessert.

“Excellent Food - Long Wait”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

Ted's has the BEST crab cakes of any restaurant. I will not order them anywhere else now. My daughter had a blue cheese bison burger and she said it was very good also - cooked just right. We were told the wait would be 30 minutes. It was at least an hour. The appetizer was delivered promptly so that was good as we were very hungry after the long wait. Jonathan was a very nice waiter - attentive but not over bearing.

“Great place to eat.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

Had a 1-2 hour wait when we arrived, so we sat at the bar in front of the line cooks and ate. Line cooks were very nice and accommodating - more so than our bartender waiter. Food was very good. I recommend the bison burger.
