Ted's Montana Grill, been there yet?

I gave up red meat for Lent and the countdown is on! I was thinking about going to Ted's Montana Grill on Easter Monday. Has any chowhounds been there yet?

  1. Shouldn't this be in "Chains?".

    But to address the question, it's not very good. It's one of those places that ask you if you've eaten there before, so they can explain the "concept" to you. I hate that.

    Um, it's a restaurant- the concept is- I order food, and you bring it to me.

    1. I've been there once and had my first Bison burger. Not bad.
      Cheesemonger sounds a bit angry but I don't think his/her reply was of much use to you.

      I would suggest doing a search on the New England board for Ted's Montana Grill. I'm certain I've posted something about it here....but it wouldn't hurt to search the Chain's board either.

      1. There is a TED's in Atlanta, Bision everything....If you like bision that is the place to be, but if you do not, then stay away! they are a little over priced for what they have got, if you check the actual price of bision then you can get it WAY cheaper elsewhere....I would pick another place for your end of lent celebration....I am sure there is a better steak house close to you, Teds is not what i would choose....

        1. There is one located in South Windsor Ct. at Evergreen Walk Mall area. Seems to be a bit pricy for what you get. Have heard good coments and bad. I nice place that might meet your idea for a good Steak would be Dakota's . There is one in Rocky Hill on Rt. 99 and there is one in Avon on Rt. 44 They both serve a nice steak dinner. With different choices. Hope you have good luck. Earle

          1. If you do go, order a bison burger -- they are delicious! I thought the food there was very good but I do agree it is a bit pricey.

            1. Hi I went to the Montana Grill in Tallahassee FL last February. We enjoyed it very much although we had plain old hamburger and steaks As a matter of fact Ted Turner strolled by and stopped to shake hands with us and many other diners.

              1. I haven't been, but i liked the looks of the RI menu online. Assuming it's all fresh as they say, and if it's well-prepared, I thought the prices seemed fair.

                1. Visited the Tallahassee store and will definitely go back. I had the Salmon and it was very good and a good value, although most items are a little pricey. I sat near the open kitch counter and all the food looked good.

                    I ate at Ted's Montana Grill last night and was pleasantly surprised. Actually, I loved it! First off, it is eco-friendly-- everything down to the cardboard straws and borax hand soap in the rest rooms. My husband and I were weary travelers and we could not have been happier with our meals. The wine list is not boring but reasonably priced (Bogle Petite Syrah at $6.50) and the beer menu could have a little bit to be desired but that had some classic American craft beers like Sierra Nevada, Anchor Steam and Magic Hat #9 Pale Ale. Our server brought some pickles with our beverages. The pickles reminded me of my childhood going to the Stage Deli in NYC. Our server was really engaging and helpful with menu suggestions. She could tell that I was a little leary of bison, so she brought out a small dish of bison pot roast and mashed potatoes. I did not get the bison because a cheeseburger was calling my name, but I will definately get it next time. My cheeseburger was perfectly done with a real beefy not greasy flavor and the french fries were like beach fries. My husband loved his bison burger and savored the their "half" sides--- he got a 1/2 french fries and 1/2 onion rings. Also, we shared a dish of cole slaw...it was chopped with shredded. The dressing barely covered the cabbage, so it was still crisp and brought out all of the cabbage-y goodness. Our bill was $41 and we thought we got a deal!

                      Sounds great - I'll definitely be trying this place.
