The food is little pricey. But their fried food was not very good. The chicken burger we ordered was drenched in oil. The fries were just warm. The restaurant is very nice but food is average.

Food was terrible. The drinks were as good as the ones served at that frat party I went to in 1993. There is nothing I can recommend about this place.

I had the steak my steak was a little underdone for my taste but, it was delicious regardless. The hash brown were super crunchy and also delicious. We had milkshakes for dessert. I had the chocolate, peanut butter and banana; a sublime combination. Thick, creamy and plenty of it.

We had a pleasant experience. Ted’s bulletin is doing a promotion. When you buy and entree, you get a free milkshake. When we went, my friends had a great time.

Our main server was very pleasant and had very nice manners. But all of the servers were and MANAGERS were not attentive. We had to ask for everything from beginning to end, even dessert menu and carry out containers. We ordered dessert for the table and two carrot cakes to go. The to go slices of cake were half the size = SMALL while the one served at the table was normal size. For what we spent for five people, $260.00 it felt way overpriced! Also for managers to note: THERE WERE TWO FEMALE SERVERS MAKING OUT IN THE DINING ROOM RIGHT BESIDE OUR TABLE!! This was at 6:00pm in a family restaurant and was totally unacceptable behavior. The managers need to be retrained and be on the ball more. Not the first time we’ve had issues with poor management there.

This was a very nice place to eat. My family is always nervous when they go to a new place, but they definitely enjoyed it and the large portions meant they had leftovers.

The service and the food quality/portion size considering the price were all disappointing. After this experience, will likely only return to Ted’s for breakfast.

There was hair in our nachos and the server acted like he was doing us a favor by taking it off the check. Ummm yeah, obviously?! We didn’t even touch it nor did we want another order of it. No other remorse at all... Also, we all ordered entrees and then I asked for an additional kids menu Grilled Cheese to accompany my salad and was told I was not allowed to order from the kids menu. It’s not that I only ordered from the kids menu.... I ordered an $18 salad and since they give 3 pieces of lettuce, knew I wanted more. Thanks for literally nothing.

Dinner was delightful for the most part. Pearl our waitstaff was very attentive and engaging. She gave good recommendations. The crab rangoon and deviled eggs were great sharing appetizers. Everyone enjoyed their entrees of pot roast, steak Pom frites, and grilled chicken . However, the grilled swordfish was on the salty side but was compensated by the cauliflower salad. Noise level was just right and we could hear each other without raising our voices. The pineapple ginger mimosa taste great but the price if $10 is too steep for the size of the pour.

Meh. Food and decor nothing special. We were very disappointed that the cinnamon roll that was on the website was not in the menu. I wouldn’t eat here again. Better options at Crown.

Hello, we are only able to bake so many fresh cinnamon rolls every Saturday and Sunday. They do tend to sell out quickly during brunch.

I was there with a couple of friends. The server didn't seem to know the menu well enough. When ever we needed him we couldn't find him. He took 20 mins to bring our drinks, but he said he was waiting on the bartenders. Our food came out cold, which was disappointing. Overall experience was okay and I'm not sure I will go back to eat there again. Food was expensive. Not worth it.

I think the concept is good, but both times I have been there have been disappointed in food. First time the burger was way overcooked and the cake frozen, and second time, they had changed the chocolate pie and it was horrid. My friend warned me it was hit or miss, both times were a miss for me.

Straiight forward comfort food. Nothing out of the ordinary--at least in what we ordered. Our server had problems keeping our order straight. We asked for additional syrup and gravy but did not receive it until we finally caught the eye of a manager and requested it from him. It came right away. We received juice we did not order and then were charged for it, even though we had declined the juice. He did not ask at the beginning if we wanted separate checks so we had to request the bill be split when he took it back to remove the juice. When he left the bills (one of us was paying by cash), he took the credit card one but never came back for the cash. Another server took the cash but brought it back stating he couldn't find the server. The original cash did not contain the tip so we wondered if that was why he brought it back???? Either way, not good service.

Nice family restaurant with a diverse selection of drinks, breakfast food (served all day), entrees, and other delicious food. My personal highlights were the pop tarts and carrot cake. Staff were all very friendly and attentive. One negative was that the menus were sticky. Overall, great experience and we look forward to going back again.

Our group met for an early dinner at 3pm, and our server while friendly seemed distracted and unconcerned about everything. The entire experience felt off and uneasy. The staff where cutting up and being rambunctious which spilled out into the dinning area. At one point a staff member was popped with a dish towel and the “F” word was heard by everyone at our table as he ran out of the kitchen into the dinning area.

Also, when the charcuterie plate was served it was minuscule, seriously, perhaps a tablespoon of pimento cheese, less than an ounce of chopped ham, two biscuits, two thin slices of pickle and two boiled eggs all for $11+ which left 90% of the serving plate empty.....it looked pitiful!

My salmon while cooked perfectly was also surprisingly small, served with a few carrots for $18. I will say that one member of our party had the meatloaf and he was very happy with his food. But one out of five does not make a successful dinning experience.

I was very disappointed, this was a special occasion and I had made the suggestion based on excellent experiences with Teds Bulletin on 14th St. in DC. I hope they pull it together and improve, but I’ll go back to DC before I’d go back to the location in Gaithersburg.

No table service ( no water )for 15 mins . Made staff aware we were waiting to be served for an additional 10 mins
At this point we just left after 25 mins total. Parties who came in afterwards were served before we left.
