Very nice place, was seated quick. Waiter came and brought us some marinade cut up cucumbers, very tasty. We placed our order and waited. Don't be in a hurry they are not fast. We both ordered the bison filet, very tasty and cooked perfect. Side were very good. Had to send broccoli back as it was not cooked. But it was replaced in a timely manner. Was a little unappetizing looking at a waiter with a dirty shirt.

Good, quick service. Delicious bread and shrimp on ciabatta appetizer. My husband enjoyed his burger and Caesar salad. I enjoyed my salmon farmer’s salad; however, something tasted a bit off with the combo, I wonder if the original chicken would be better instead of salmon with the salad. Finished with the wild berry cheesecake and it was the perfect ending: wonderful cheesecake and crust and light syrup on the side.

I always enjoy this place. I had the bison meatloaf, which is my go to meal. I subbed broccoli instead of the green beans. The broccoli was like miniature trees. They were so big. And under cooked. But the rest of my meal was delicious. My date had the bison short ribs, which were very tasty.

I never do reviews like that but I need this place to be recognized. Me and my boyfriend where searching that day for something different and found this place, we had never been there before so once we walked in we immediately noticed that it was upscale dining. We immediately looked at each other like oh boy we are not dressed for this. But from the host stand all the way to the table we were treated with EXCEPTIONAL service. My server ( I believe him name was Terrance deserves a plaque on that wall or something. I am in the service industry and he hit it on the head. He was extremely knowledgeable of the menu, never did I wait for a drink, food was extraordinary. Every time I go out to eat I get the worst of the the worst. I had an outstanding experience and will continue to refer people. Thank you to my server .

I've been here twice now. I really had no expectations, thinking it was just Outback or Longhorn Steakhouse with Ted Turner's name on it. My expectations we're highly exceeded. Although the food was good my second visit, it wasn't as good the first time. I did get something else though. The sides and entrees are filling and flavorful. They're not overpowering in flavor or appearance, so the presentation and experience is, pardon the pun, tasteful. The atmosphere is quiet and inviting, the service is prompt and friendly. The free pickles (as opposed to bread) was a surprising and nice change - they're very good. I will be returning, as there are many dishes I'd like to try.

The food was so good I cleaned the plate before I could take a picture. Fantastic service. HUGE portions and great pickles. 👍 Delicious 😋 Delmonico Bison steak, short ribs, Chili nachos, asparagus, garlic green beans... mmmmm

We decided to treat ourselves to a lunch out and we chose Ted's Montana Grill. Brandon was our server and he was training a nice young lady,,, they were both great! I felt like the salmon, and it didn't disappoint! My beau had one of the burgers & it must've been good cause it was gone in a flash! LoL!

First time visit today and my dad and I enjoyed it! More expensive than we wanted to pay for lunch but wanted to try the bison burgers. The onion rings are a MUST! Also loved you get half sour pickles while you wait for your food. Food and service was good. Would recommend to try it to others!

Me and a few friends went down here and it was great. We were accidentally late to our table but they still got us seated, waitress was super friendly and checked on us often, I got the crab cakes and my other 3 friends got some form of the bison. The food was delicious and it was some of the best crab cakes I had eaten. The only con here is that they have paper straws.

The best burgers bar none. It's the Sunday after Christmas so it was slow in there. Service was good. Really like this place

The food is amazing! But, when I spend just shy of $100 for two people at a place like Ted's, I expect to get enough food for lunch and dinner, and that did not happen. I am so excited to have a place in town where I can order bison, but it's just not worth it for the amount of meat and sides you're getting. Next time, I'll order the meat online and make it at home myself. Besides, the best steak is the one you make yourself. I'm not going to say not to eat here because everything is really good, just know in advance that the portions are small and the price is high.

Tonight our server was Terence. He was WONDERFUL! Very attentive, funny, and he kept up with my crazy husband - and that's not an easy feat! He checked back with us often and was able to anticipate our needs without us having to ask. Looking forward to coming back - and we will definitely be looking for Terence!!

Terence, is the absolute MAN! Super outstanding service! He was highly attentive to our food and drink order, getting everything perfect. He was extremely timely with ensuring we received everything we needed! He really made damn sure everything was perfect for the love of my life! He joked with us, gave me fist pumps, and just had a super caring personality. I would hire Terrence in a New York second! Ted's is so VERY lucky to have Terence! Promote him!

I made a visit to the Durham, NC location..the atmosphere was nice and my waiter Ryan was very friendly and professional. I ordered the crab cakes...by far the most delicious crab cakes I've ever had! Even the sides were at hit...salt/pepper onion rings and Parmesan broccoli. I will definitely be back to eat here again!!!

The Avalon Bison Burger was excellent. It was juicy and flavorful. Grilled onions, creamy blue cheese and arugula topped the burger. The french fries were exactly the way I like, hot and a tad crunchy. The pickles were good. They reminded me of my dad's homemade pickles.

I was really craving a burger and Teds popped in my mind. I hadn't been there in over 5 years but I remembered liking it. Well I wasn't wrong. I got the avalon burger and it was incredible. The onions rings are also well breaded and delicious. It was easy to order online on their website, pay for it, and pickup on site. Great food, great service.

Ordered curbside pickup yesterday, Food was tasty, but potatoes were cold and we live less than 5 minutes away. The broccoli was almost raw. the bison short rib was fall apart tender and delicious. overall just too expensive for what we got. It felt like our order was done and sitting on a shelf until we called for it and we waited a few minutes for someone to bring it out.

I gave these guys a 5 because, first of all we were greeted upon entry, seated quickly, and were waited on accordingly. The staff was very friendly and professional to say the least. The manager on duty was absolutely phenomenal! I spoke to him briefly as my party was leaving, the man is level-headed and very concerned about his patrons and I commend him on that. He and his staff deserved the five stars because the level of commitment there was really good tonight. The experience at Chili's right across the parking lot allowed us to see what we have been missing when dining out on Sunday evenings! Great job!

The food is definitely very yummy and tasty. Lots of great options and the place has done a good job to practice social distancing inside the dining area. If your looking for a nice place to go out during the quaritine I would says Ted's Montana Grill is a great place to go.

Bison filet was terrific. Service was great also. Friendly and courteous staff. Vegetables were undercooked for my taste, my drinks were a little weak also. An upscale restaurant. Relaxed environment.

Food and service is always the best. For some reason, the salads are notable. Maybe they're very fresh. The bison options are great, but honestly I've never had anything but really great meals. Reservations are suggested during prime dining hours even on weekdays.

This place is always so busy on the weekends that the wait can be intimidating. But it was well worth the wait because the service was fantastic and the food was delicious. Maggie was SO NICE and recommended some great food. We did have to wait almost an hour but it was very busy and everyone looked like they were working hard. Just goes to show, good things come to those who wait!

Great!!! If you want terrific grass fed beef or bison this is the place to go, and at reasonable prices unlike the over rated steak house across the square which is outrageously expensive and no better if as good. Service very good and sides beautifully prepared. Ted T is the man!

Came here recently to spend Valentine's Day with my fiance! I highly recommend this restaurant! My fiance and I were greeted with smiling staff members. Our food was amazing and Jeremiah our waiter made great suggestions! I was very impressed by the atmosphere and the quality of the food and drinks! A great recommendation made by my friend and current server, Maddie! We will be coming back

Visited my Mom & took her to Ted's. We love this place. Their service was impeccable. The food was extra yummy. Of the 5 of us, only one person needed a To Go box & she got a salad. The rest of us cleaned our plates 🙂. Wish Tampa had a Ted's Montana Grill.

It's a nice chain. The food is good and buffalo is there forte. A little more expensive than most of the chains but the service is great.

My kids and I have been having dinner together at Ted's Montana Grill a few times each year for at least 12 years. It's always delicious and we leave with more happy memories. My son is now in college and my daughter will soon follow but we still go back when we are able. It's a really good restaurant but also one that is particularly special to us.

We love this place. My daughter enjoys the Snowcrest chicken sandwich while the rest of us always have the bison. The cucumbers they bring out are a family hit as well as the homemade chips with ranch. Always have friendly and fairly fast service. Nice atmosphere. We look forward to being in the area and able to eat here. There have been times we've driven the hour+ drive just to eat here!

What is there not to like about this place? First off the interior is a bit dark, but weirdly calming and tranquil. It is not loud at all, and the booths are very well designed. The pickled cucumbers that come are soooo tasty, I ate two bowls myself and honestly I could have eaten a third. The holy grail of it all was the mouth-watering bison burger I had. The meat is so tender and it just melts in your mouth. It holds its flavor so well and its just packing the meat. You will not leave there feeling hungry....satisfied and happy for sure, but hungry...no. I can't wait to go again and try another burger.

A perfect example of what a great casual family restaurant should be. Great service, friendly staff, welcoming interior, and the food is always fantastic. The leanness of bison can make it challenging to cook properly but they nail it every time . . . everything I've had has been absolutely spot on (especially LOVE the Bison Meatloaf!) Also love the wonderful, crispy fresh pickles they bring out, a perfect warm up while you wait for your meal. Be sure to come hungry because the portions are generous to say the least!

We walked in with our sleeping one-year-old and they proceeded to sit us. It wasn’t until after we were seated there that another server came to tell us that we couldn’t leave the stroller next to us because it was a fire hazard. Mind you, we were towards the back of the restaurant against the wall so it didn’t make sense that we we were creating a fire hazard but I understand fire code so I understood this was not his decision. However, they should’ve never seated us there or perhaps they should have let us know before we were seated that we had to leave the stroller elsewhere. I can’t talk about the quality of the food because we just decided to leave at that point. My two stars are first impression two stars, they never got a chance to earn the others. Update- I was contacted by one of the restaurant directors to learn about my experience so that they could learn from what happened and address some of the issues. I was not asked to update my review. But I am updating my review simply because they have someone looking after this and hopefully learn from it. Thanks to this simple act, I will attempt another visit in the future to hopefully have a much better experience and eat there.

We fell in love with Ted's in the suburbs of Atlanta and greatly enjoy having one in the Triangle. It is a wonderful place to bring the meat loving family with a wide variety of tastes from hamburgers to bison steaks. The decor gives you a feel of a classic western, and the food is savory with large portions. Not the cheapest place in town, but still reasonably priced for the portions and quality. I trust them to cook my steak to the right temperature every time, which is one of the most important qualities of a steakhouse.

The waiter was one of the friendliest waiters I've ever met but at the same time he was genuine and did not hover. The bison meatloaf sandwich was delicious. The meatloaf melted in my mouth. They give you sliced cucumbers while you wait and I don't know what they put on them but they tasted so unique. The atmosphere is pretty good. I appreciated the bathroom had copper pipes and fixtures with real patina. Nice touch.

Bison steak, garlic mashed potatoes, buttered carrots. Cooked as requested. Flavored with butter and pepper seasoning. Carrots could of used more butter for the size of the wedge. Potatoes were mashed with a great seasoning of garlic. Presented colorful and enticing. Value was questionable until first bite. At that point I was happily invested into my meal.

Excellent steaks from cow and buffalo. Good range of other items on the menu. I believe one of the main owners of this chain, Ted Turner, provides the buffalo from his ranch. Excellent decor with lots of wood. Get a booth if you are party of 1 to 3. Good wine list and full bar. There are some excellent high priced steak houses in our area but if you want every bit as good a dinning experience at a lower price, Ted's Montana Grill is the place.

Overall experience was fantastic. Finding this restaurant was very easy on Google maps, it is in a nice shopping center with plenty of other stores and lots of parking out front. Once inside we were greeted by the friendly wait staff and brought to our booth. There are plenty of tables and booths inside as well as some seating for outdoor dining. The booth/table was clean as well as the area around us. The menu is an all American menu with your typical appetizers, salads, burgers, etc. One of their specials is bison which can be subbed for regular beef patties on many of the items on the menu. I myself ordered the bison burger with a fried egg, bacon, raspberry jam, etc. It was quite good, but the side order of parmesan broccoli was not the best side to get. I also ordered a Buffalo 41 drink(I think that's what it was called) and it was fantastic, I would drink a fishbowl of it if they ever made one! Overall I would absolutely come back to this local spot for another meal whenever I am back down in the area.

My favorite go-to place when I have visitors in town because it always a great experience. The food never fails to be immaculate, service is great and management is even better. I have had the pleasure of being served by many of the staff - Alyssa and Brandon are both amazing servers who never let me wine get empty (thank you). If you stop in the manager nicole is always seen with a smile and pays attention to details. Thank you Teds for the great time and memories!

Bison Brisket was so tender you could cut it with a fork. Ginger the waitress was great with us and our daughter. Informative, attentive and friendly The salmon and southwest corn I got was perfect! Soft but flaked amazingly. Everything had great flavoring. Got the kid some meatloaf. That was moist and delicious as well. Great place to go. Went around 5 and it was not real crowded.

This is my lemon drop after two sips. It was never up to where the residue is…that was after I swirled it around in surprise at the small amount. I actually asked the bartender if this was the full amount and was told it was “their recipe.” She did offer to add a shot for a charge. Any self-respecting steakhouse has a good healthy martini, at least to within a half-inch of the rim. It was surprising they wouldn’t just do it right after I asked about it. Oh well. They originally undercooked my steak and then over cooked it (by their own assessment) but they re-did one perfectly. The broccoli is so good. They took the steak off the bill, so props to them for their food service (just not the drink service).

This is a yearly experience for my husband's birthday. It began because we couldn't get bison steaks where we live. Now that we can, it's really just tradition. The steaks are always cooked exactly as we order them, and the sides are plentiful. The salt-brined cucumbers they serve the table are refreshing and a nice change from bread. I've been disappointed the last few visits because they seem to have taken the prime rib off their menu. The staff is friendly, and they WILL try to sell you up to bison if you choose beef. All in all, it's a good dining experience, and we will likely continue our tradition.

Ted Montana Grill hosted my 42nd Birthday Dinner and let me say their customer service was A+, they were very attentive to my large group of 20. The food was amazing!! I had a Bison burger and it was so tender and well seasoned 😋They also printed me out my own personalized menu, which made me feel really special!! Thank you to all the waiters, the chefs, and Nicole!! You all were great!! I will be back!! Oh they also took a picture of the group and gave me a special card for picture. I loved that. 😍
