Ted’s Bulletin is a laid-back, classic American community restaurant, bakery and bar, serving craveable American cuisine in a comfortable and welcoming environment.

We serve breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. Whether it’s family dinner, business lunch, or just a Ted’s Tart and coffee to-go, we’re as adaptable as your life is dynamic. Our breakfast menu is available all day because we believe that the most important meal of the day can be had morning, noon or night.

Ted’s Bulletin is a haven for comfort and celebrating the things we have in common: a hunger for good food at great value, a need for a place to be comfortable being ourselves, and a desire to connect with our community. At Ted’s Bulletin, everyone has a table, and every table has a story to tell.

We’d been recommended to try the tarts here while on vacation. We ended up eating (and enjoying!) much more. The boozy milkshakes were a hit with my husband and me, while our 5yo son raved about the grilled cheese sandwich (he’s a bit of an aficionado).

I have never even dreamed that such a restaurant existed! Adult milkshakes?!?!? Comfort food with a modern twist. I found this restaurant by googling Friday night restaurant kid friendly - it totally fits the bill for that. No one has to compromise!

Ted's has been consistent in quality of food and service. We ha e been to Ted's all over the city, and in Arlington, and we have not been disappointed. Ted's has become a family favorite. The entire staff at Ted's, on 14th St, deserves a round of applause for their professional and service.

My wife had a crab cake sandwich. She found it inedible and would not eat it. The waiter and manager were sympathetic. Its cost was not added to the bill.

Go for the milkshake... and thats about it, although the cakes at the bakery looked epic. Food was basic and greasy and the coffee could be confused for brown muddy water.

Excellent food, excellent service, and excellent pricing. The deviled eggs are phenomenal. The tater tots are unique. Ther Cobb salad is the best I've ever had. This is my second time. It didn't disappoint. Notable, this time was, again, the excellent service. Finally, I ordered a White Russian milkshake. What a desert!!!

Remarkably good food. We ordered the Cobb salad. Without a doubt the best Cobb salad I’ve ever eaten. The fried chicken strips were excellent. The blue cheese was generous. The pickled onions were phenomenal. The dressing an absolute delight. We also ordered deviled eggs. They each come with a small piece of applewood bacon. The eggs were smooth, creamy with just the right touch of paprika. I ordered the southern fried chicken. It came with mashed potatoes and baked carrots. My mother would have been in awe of the dish and taste. My wife ordered crab cakes. Very well prepared with generous portion of crab. They tested like a good crab cake should - like crab. The house made tartar sauce was a little too spicy for both my wife and I.

Our server was, I think, Angela. A petite women with a generous smile and was always there when we needed something.

Finally, the pricing is fair - which for DC is remarkable.

We had originally gone to the Ted's in Reston, which was newer and nicer inside and had a different menu. We wanted to bring friends and DC is closest to them. The HVAC was also being challenged by the recent heatwave. The actual service was good but we felt rushed and had to ask for drinks and water, etc. Issues that should have been automatic. When we asked, they did appear very fast, but we had to ask. The food was very good but the portions were small and the menu was limited. There was no sharing and there was definitely room for dessert. Also, the bar was limited and asking for anything beyond a drink whose ingredients are in the name (gin-&-tonic, vodka-&-soda) is an iffy proposition at best. I won't say to avoid this restaurant but i will say there are definitely better options for your money.
(As a side note when I called the Ted's on Capitol Hill to make reservations, which was our first choice, the young lady that answered the phone told me I had to make reservations on Open Table. When I informed her Open Table was experiencing difficulties and wouldn't let me make reservations there, she told me I had to make reservations on Open Table. When I again informed her I understood that but Open Table was not working for her location, she hung up on me.)

I was looking for more of a steakhouse experience and with someone who doesn't like fish at all, so choices were somewhat limited, as was the on tap beer selection, but overall the food was excellent.

We were overall very pleased with our visit. Place was great for kids and adults alike. Food was fantastic!!!! Service left a little to be desired, our server was slow and would disappear for periods of time. We had to ask for drink refills, my Chicken Parm plate was handed to me by the staff rather than being placed on the table and it was a very hot plate so I'm glad I didn't drop it (was wearing white pants too!!), then we waited so long on our bill I was beginning to think it was free. Salads came out with the food so that was strange, maybe that's normal here but I'm accustomed to getting a salad before the food. But like I said the food was absolutely fantastic and we weren't in that big of a rush so they get 4*.
