I sat at the bar and ordered a side Ceasar salad, salmon, garlic mashed potatoes, kale salad, and two beers. Services was very polite, friendly, and attentive. Food came out quickly and was delicious!

Quite a bit disappointing on the Short Ribs (extra, way too salty 'gravy'). Burgers decent - both Bison & Beef. Chili just OK - very watery tho. Brussel Sprouts also just OK... Asparagus mostly edible. Deserts delish - brownie was heavenly, Hagen Daz ice cream...as good as expected. Quality control needs some help, apparently, as it did not stack up to prior experiences at Ted's elsewhere.More

My friend and I have enjoyed Ted’s Montana Grill in the past. We went for lunch a couple of days ago but had to turn around and leave because none of the staff were wearing masks.

The food was very good. We didn’t know what to expect as we’d never been to a Ted’s before, but we were pleasantly surprised. Great menu and drink options. Service was very prompt and efficient. We’ll visit again.

We tried the skinny bison burger, bison brisket & bison meatloaf. All yummy. The server could have been a bit more attentive.

I recently took some friend that came to visit me in Durham, NC from Virginia. I've eaten here several times and it was always great. My friends had a great time here and the staff was very welcoming and attentive. I would like to especially...thank Frank Sincoskie and Crystal (sorry I forgot to ask for her last name). While dining there, they frequently came over to our table to check on us.More

Due to Covid there weren't a lot of people there but we were hungry after driving in from Atlanta. Server was a bit slow to come over but we knew what we wanted to eat and drink and the drinks were delivered promptly and the...server was very friendly and attentive from that point on. Wife had Beef Swiss & Mushroom Burger and I had the Jack's Cadillac Burger. Everything was cooked to perfection and the salad which was delivered first was extremely good! I can just imagine how "swarmed" they'd be were it not for the Covid Issue we are all facing. We live in Atlanta and this was a much nicer facility and the food equal if not a bit better than we usually get from Ted's. We highly recommend this location!More

The service was a joke. Our waiter was condescending and rude. He definitely didn’t want to be there. We chose to push forward and kill it with kindness rather than causing a scene. Food was average at best. The best thing we had was the...cherry lemonade- it was pretty awesome. Otherwise, I’d skip this place altogether.More

Along the years, i have noticed some downfall to the place. The meat and dishes are still very good, especially the bizon. However, the whole atmosphere surrounding seems to be lesser and lesser. There is like a loss of enthousiasme that needs to be picked...up again. Still like to go there and hope they can bring the joy back, or it was a day that everybody was tired, could also be the case. 😀More

We met friends for lunch and enjoyed our meals. The burgers, vid & salmon we're all great. The service was underwhelming however. We stood at the entrance with no one paying attention to us for a while and our waiter seemed pretty uninterested in us...or our questions.More

Came here in a whim. Saturday night. Just my wife and I. Got a table very quickly and it slid downhill from there. Paolo, our waiter did the absolute bare minimum to serve us. He smiled and was pleasant; took our order, but that was...it. No recommendations, no banter. Meh. I ordered NY strip, rare, my wife ordered a salad -steak with blue cheese. My rare steak (bison) was an odd dichotomy of cold red center and crispy hot crust. And a glop of salted butter on top. For sides received cold crunchy buttered carrots an lukewarm crunchy steamed broccoli with a smattering of Parmesan. The veggies were verging on raw. Far from “al dente”. My wife’s salad with blue cheese lacked the key flavor ingredient, blue cheese. She flagged down the inattentive waiter, asked for and received a tablespoon more blue cheese. When it came time for the check, “Paolo the inattentive” did not offer dessert options until asked ; Odd, since up selling desserts is second nature in most restaurants. Nor did he offer a “to go” box until requested We did not initiate any complaints. At this level restaurant that should not be necessary. We simply won’t return.More

We were in the area and decided to try Ted's. Two of us ordered Bison burgers a $2 up charge from their regular hamburger prices. Both were very good but the side of grilled Brussel Sprouts needed more cooking time as did the buttered carrots....My wife ordered the steak with onion rings, it was cooked to perfection and delicious. The onion rings and fries were both plentiful on par with what we were expecting but not outstanding. While Ted's is somewhat pricey we would be willing to eat there again.More

My family and I came here for our 2nd visit, and were not enthused. Our steaks were lukewarm and mediocre at best. I had a side of green beans that were limp and cold. I asked to swap them for an order of their "Made...to Order French Fries" and was brought fries that were blanched. Won't be eating here againMore
