Teds Montana Grill Tallahassee edition

I was recently contacted regarding Ted's Montana Grills new spring menu, and asked if the Mister and I would like to give it a try. I immediately said yes, as C and I love a good burger, and are always up to trying something new.  Additionally, I admire what Ted Turner is doing as an environmentalist and philanthropist, so it was a win win. Please note that the mister and I did receive a complementary meal, but the thoughts below are all our own...

Ted's website states, Inspired by the pioneer spirit of the American West, Ted’s Montana Grill is committed to serving honest food served with genuine hospitality. The menu is known for its modern interpretation of hand-prepared, 100-percent fresh, classic American food. The chef inspired menu features the finest cuts and best selection of bison, including high-quality, flavorful steaks and award-winning burgers amongst a variety of other unique menu items.

I must also share that I work retail, so I have a crazy schedule, the GM of the Tallahassee location, George worked to accommodate us, and truly provided top notch service during our visit. 
Two of my favorite things about Teds Montana Grill
1. The great quotes on the coasters. I know this is silly, but they truly are great one lines
2. the  picked cucumbers .. a unique tasty treat and a refreshing choice from the usual bread to snack on while waiting for your appetizer/meal
The mister and I tried the Smoked Trout Dip appetizer. It boasted a southwestern flavor featuring trout smoked in-house, roasted Anaheim peppers, fresh lime, cilantro and served with ciabatta toast points and tortilla chips. The mister is usually not a fan of fish, but he loved the dip and says he would order again! We like it best with the chips. Our server shared the bread is made fresh daily, but  being ciabatta toast, it was a bit hard for my liking.
The mister was quick to order the New York City-based Boylan soda to try. He opt'd for the Creme and I must say it was sweet, but subtle. I asked our server to tell us more about why Boylan? He denoted that Boylan builds on Ted’s desire to provide authentic American options made with natural ingredients. Boylan’s features  bold-flavored sodas sweetened with pure cane sugar, natural oils and served in recycled glass bottles. Note there were three flavors to choose from: black cherry, creme and orange.

Dinner..
The mister chose Bison Meatloaf with garlic mashed potatoes, and squash casserole. He considers himself somewhat of a Meatloaf expert, as he orders it nearly ever time it is on the menu. C shares that the meatloaf was moist, and the seasonings bring out the full bison flavor the bison and the sauce compliments the meatloaf.

I chose the Avalon Bison Burger-  Gruyère, Blue Cheese, bacon caramelized onions, roasted garlic aioli, baby arugula.. I opt'd for onion rings instead of fries. The burger was huge! After half of the burger I was full, and I knew I needed to save room for dessert.. Thus I asked for a to go package, and enjoyed half for lunch the following day ..
We were excited to learn that Ted’s Strawberry Shortcake dessert returned to the menu, as we had heard about it prior, but were not quick enough to make it to Ted's to try it. The dessert featured fresh-baked sweet drop biscuits topped with vanilla Häagen- Dazs® ice cream and house-made whipped cream, fresh strawberries and strawberry sauce. It was the perfect end to an amazing meal. 

C & I are already thinking about when we can go back!
