At Ted’s Montana Grill, above all we are authentic. Real food. Real people. Real passion for the environment. At our Classic American Grill, everything is fresh, made from scratch, just as you order it. No freezer. No microwaves. No boil-in-the-bag. No pretense. And in keeping with co-founder Ted Turner’s focus on the environment, we are an eco-friendly establishment that is as passionate about the environment as we are about our food. Recyclable paper menus, paper straws and reusable glass are just a few of the industry-leading ways we do our part so you can eat great and do good. Ted’s Montana Grill. Who knew making the world a better place could be so delicious? Our commitment to authenticity means one thing when it comes to our food; every menu item is made from scratch and prepared “to order.” There are no pre-made salads, prepackaged French fries or onion rings; and, there is no microwave and no Styrofoam® in the restaurant. In fact, the only freezer on the premises is for ice cream. We make our own croutons. We squeeze 40 lemons to make fresh lemonade. We make our own salad dressings. We grind our own beef and bison in our butcher’s shop in the morning and in the afternoon. It means baking nine cookies at a time all day long so they’re fresh when you want one. We cook for you, when you get here, but we don’t start until after you order. Sure, that’s more difficult, but it’s what makes our food so good. When creating the concept, Turner and McKerrow traveled throughout the West to find the classic American bar and grill that could bring the spirit and style of the American West to cities across the nation. What they created was a décor that blends the warmth and charm of an authentic Montana bar and grill, faithful to the Arts & Crafts architectural style of the early 20th century. A slice of the United States and North America is what makes Ted’s Montana Grill different. Not modern. Not antique. Classic. And it all comes together to create an atmosphere that makes customers feel relaxed. Emphasizing comfort and the use of natural materials reminiscent of turn-of-the-century Montana, architectural highlights such as mahogany paneling, intricately tiled floors, distressed tin ceilings, pendant lighting, ceiling fans, metal crown moldings and unpolished brass. Elements like our food, that are timeless. At the heart of Ted’s Montana Grill is its deep commitment to the environment. Menus are printed on recycled paper. The restaurants use paper straws and to-go cups are made of cornstarch. Soft drinks are served in recyclable glass bottles. Natural building products such as pressed tin ceilings and hickory wood flooring are used. Other measures include water-efficient toilets in many of the restaurants and powder Boraxo® soap in restrooms, which is 100-percent biodegradable as well as a natural hand softener. Each restaurant, of course, is non-smoking. In addition, Ted’s Montana Grill continues to seek out and find non-petroleum-based, recyclable products for its restaurants as part of its belief that being ecologically and environmentally responsible will give its customers an experience they can feel good about--a place where they can “eat great and do good.” Sure, it may cost us a little more to do business, but in the end it’s the right thing to do.
