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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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 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.

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.

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.
