My wife and I rarely go out to dinner by ourselves.  But when we do a trip to our nearby Ted's Montana Grill is usually right at the top of our list.  Founded by media mogul Ted Turner and his partner George McKerrow Jr. back in 2002 this chain of restuarants has been growing in popularity over the past several years.  And why not?   The food at Ted's Montana Grill is superb.

You can go to tedsmontanagrill.com and take a peak at the menu.  This is a place that features outstanding steaks and lo and behold great bison dishes.  Last evening I chose the bison pot roast while my wife feasted on bison meatloafOutstanding!  Both of our meals came with tasty garlic mashed potatoes and the vegetables are terrific as well.  You can also partake of buttermilk biscuits but only if you ask for them.  Everything at Ted's Montana Grill is made from scratch and cooked to order!   And for dessert might I recommend one of the house specialties---apple crisp.
Trust me,  one serving of apple crisp is more than enough for two!   The surroundings are quite posh without being overly ostentatious.   It is definitely a cut above the family style restaurants we are more prone to patronize.   No doubt about it--we  always thoroughly enjoy our dining experience at Ted's Montana Grill!  

Two quick notes.  We have found that the portions are not overly generous but if you plan on having dessert you will be happy that they are not!  But having said that you are sure to enjoy every bite of your entree.  The food is that good!   I would heartily recommend the bison pot roast.  In terms of prices dining at Ted's Montana Grill is a special treat for us reserved for birthdays and our anniversary.   But I never feel that we have not gotten good value for our hard earned money.  If you have never experienced a meal at Ted's Montana Grill then you are in for a real treat!   They are in 20 states now and more than likely they will be coming to your area in the not too distant future.  Very highly recommended!

Hi Paul.......I'm so glad to know about this. Didn't know they existed until you wrote the review. I looked up the locations in Missouri and the closest one is in Kansas City.....they always get everything before St. Louis. I would love to try Ted Turner's and will the next time I'm in Kansas City.....my cousins live there so I can go anytime I want. Thanks for sharing!

Damn, I wish there were some in California. I should never read restaurant reviews when I'm hungry... :-)

I guess I would qualify as a frustrated writer. My work requires very little writing and so since 1999 I have been writing reviews on non-fiction books and anthology CD's on amazon.com. I never could … more

About this restaurant


Ted's Montana Grill ABrief History

At Ted's Montana Grill, authenticity is a way of life, and has been from the very beginning. From the menu to the mission, this classic American grill has built its foundation on providing fresh-made comfort food within a turn-of-the-century Montana grill atmosphere, all while being environmentally responsible.

How It All Began

In an effort to stop the extinction of buffalo, also called American bison, co-founders Ted Turner and George McKerrow Jr. joined forces and founded a restaurant designed to increase the overall population of the American bison – Ted's Montana Grill. The pair opened their first restaurant in January 2002 with a focus on introducing America to the health and taste benefits of bison within an extensive menu of classic American foods. Using bison raised on Turner's ranches, as well as other bison ranches, Ted's Montana Grill proudly began serving naturally raised bison, a nutritious, lean meat rich in iron and considered a healthy alternative to other meats. Containing less fat, cholesterol and calories than beef or chicken, bison became the perfect choice for an increasingly health-conscious society.

A Classic American Grill

From 2002 to 2007 the restaurant company expanded to 20 states and enhanced its menu offerings. The menu today provides diners with a 21st century twist on classic comfort goods, including fresh, made-from-scratch dishes featuring premium beef, bison, chicken and seafood. The time-honored ...
